Last year, Jose Borrajeros, a spokesman for the Arizona Latino Republican Association, recorded a robo call implying Mesa residents could vote for a woman accused of being a sham candidate in the recall election of state Sen. Russell Pearce.

Earlier, Constantinos “Dino’’ Eliades, the association’s vice president, collected signatures for the woman, Olivia Cortes, who dropped out of the race after a judge found she had been recruited to draw votes away from Pearce’s opponent.

Now, the association is playing a key role on behalf of Pearce in his primary campaign against Republican Bob Worsley.
