The Free Enterprise Club has started a new feature to highlight the growing number of sweetheart deals and special favors that have become commonplace throughout Arizona’s political system: The Crony of the Month.  The Crony of the Month will be awarded to elected officials and political figures that use their position of power and close relationships to benefit insiders and special interests at the expense of taxpayers and the free market.

Crony Capitalism is a growing problem in Arizona and the Free Enterprise Club is working hard to end it. Past recipients of the honor include:

Secretary of State Ken Bennett

State Senator Bob Worsley
