What's wrong with this picture: (1) AZ legislators sweep HURF funds, (2) get re-elected anyway

Sierra Vista Herald gets the problem with (1).  But what about (2)?  

State lawmakers — including everyone from the governor on down to our local LD14 representatives — have supported using HURF for purposes other than provided under the formula.
Today’s reality is that Cochise County — which measures some 6,165.69 square miles, can only afford to maintain 90 miles of its 464 paved roads.

But wait - SVH tiptoes into the solution:

... voters considering what’s important in the Aug. 26 Republican primary election for the State Legislature need to recognize that political labels and philosophies make little difference when your local roads are deteriorating.

It's not just Aug. 26.  Think November.  To put it more succinctly to LD14 voters:  if you want a change, don't keep doing the same stuff at the ballot box.
