Why won't Democrats call out one of their own - Katie Hobbs - for racial discrimination?

You can always count on Arizona Democratic leaders to call out
racism – except, apparently, when it comes to Secretary of State
Katie Hobbs.

It’s been a few days now since a federal jury awarded a whopping
$2.7 million to African American lawyer Talonya Adams for racial and
sex discrimination against her boss at the state Senate.

Yet, Democratic leaders across Arizona are still utterly silent. And
I find that unbelievably hypocritical.

Why aren't these Democrats denouncing Hobbs?
These are the same people who are first in line to point fingers
(and correctly so) when they see racism against Black people,
Latinos and other minorities.

But where is the outrage now from U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly, U.S. Reps.
Ruben Gallego, Greg Stanton, Raúl Grijalva, Ann Kirkpatrick and rest
of the Democratic congressional delegation?

Where is the outrage from Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego or Tucson Mayor
Regina Romero or state Democratic lawmakers?

Where is the outrage from state Sen. Martín Quezada, who’s running
for state treasurer while serving as Hobbs’ gubernatorial campaign

Where is the outrage from state Sen. Raquel Terán, one of most vocal
activists turned chair of the Arizona Democratic Party?

The best Terán could do was put out a weird message about working
with Republicans on equal pay policies so this doesn’t happen again?

On Monday, House Democratic Leader Reginald Bolding, who is African
American and running for Arizona secretary of state, sent out a
statement congratulating Adams on her win and pledging to work on
equal pay policies. But just like Terán, he never mentions Hobbs.

A federal court ruled twice in Adams' favor

That isn’t going to cut it, Democrats.

Not when Adams herself directly points the finger at Hobbs, who was
Senate minority leader at the time of Adams’ firing in 2015 because
she complained of low pay compared to her white counterparts.

“This was Katie Hobbs’ decision,” Adams told 12 News. “I think she’s
always been very uncomfortable with minorities. She seems wholly
disconnected from people of color.”

Hobbs, meanwhile, blamed the firing on Republicans. Really?

The federal court has twice decided in Adams’ favor and thus against
the Senate. The court didn’t mention anyone by name, a technicality
Democrats have used to try to blame Republicans who did the actual
firing since they had majority rule.
