If Roberts, Montini and Valdez can't make up stuff, how are they supposed to write a compelling column? Come on, GP, lefties need jobs, too.

This is nothing new for Laurie Roberts. A few years ago she destroyed the reputation of a leading attorney with a series on a probate case gone bad. Week after week after week she vilified that attorney and the probate court generally with lies, innuendos and one-sided reporting. Then her sister, Ruth Ann Timmer who was an appeals court judge at the time, used the publicity to help springboard herself onto the Arizona Supreme Court.
Laurie Roberts is as dirty as they get.
