Jan Brewer - Arizona

Jan Brewer Worst Governor

Gov. Brewer’s improper intervention in her state's redistricting process raises questions about her commitment to honest government in Arizona.

At Gov. Brewer’s urging, the state senate impeached the independent chairwoman of the state’s redistricting commission. The state supreme court reinstated the chairwoman after finding that Gov. Brewer had not identified sufficient basis to justify her removal.
