Former Arizona State Legislator Don Shooter On Life Support
Former Arizona state legislator Don Shooter underwent two surgeries this week.
Rep. Bob Thorpe said Shooter underwent surgery Wednesday and is now connected to a breathing tube. Family friend Gretchen Jacobs said Shooter had been on life support and had a blood clot, but seems to be past the worst of it.
"The fact that he made it through surgery and all that yesterday is a miracle," Jacobs said. "The odds were against him."
Shooter is scheduled for more surgeries over the next three weeks.
Shooter is a former chairman of the Arizona House Appropriations Committee. He was expelled in 2018 after an investigation found he had a pattern of sexually harassing women.
