[ . . . ] "State lawmakers Sen. Jake Hoffman, R-Queen Creek, Sen. Justine Wadsack, R-Tucson, Rep. Justin Heap, R-Mesa, and Barbara Parker, R-Mesa, are expected to participate in a panel at the event. The panel will be moderated by Descovich, and attendees will be able to ask education-related questions." "Moms for Liberty was founded in 2021 by Descovich and Justice, former school board members in Florida, out of opposition to pandemic-related school closures and mask mandates. Its chapters have since made national headlines for attempts to take over school boards, explosive appearances at school board meetings and efforts to restrict the teaching of race and gender-related topics."

Facts Don’t Support Arizona legislator Heap’s Claim He Met With Lobbyist
Arizona State Rep. Justin Heap of Mesa told 12News last month he met with a lobbyist at the center of a story that gained news coverage in January. But the lobbyist involved said Heap’s claim is not true. Public records also do not support Heap’s statement. On Wednesday, Heap did not explain to 12News the reason for the discrepancy. Instead, Heap criticized 12News for covering the story at all. “Why do you keep running this ridiculous nonsense story from day one that nobody cares about but you?” Heap said. The story, first reported by the Washington Post in January, revealed when a representative of the lobbyist firm Consilium Consulting asked to meet with Heap to discuss deregulation issues in Arizona, Heap responded by saying he needed to prioritize his meetings and wanted to know if the lobbyist or its clients donated to his campaign fund. If not, Heap wanted to know why. [...] Kirk Adams, president of Consilium Consulting, told 12News Heap did not meet with them. A spokesperson for the firm added that Heap “ghosted” the organization.
