    GOP staffers in Arizona said about him: ‘He’s a lot like Mexican food, spicy and substantial. But he’ll upset your stomach in the long run.’
    There are stories about him in Arizona, ranging from shooting burros on his property to telling an officer who pulled him over for speeding that his ‘ass sucks buttermilk.’
    He was convicted in 1988 for extortion because he threatened a parole board officer with the loss of his job as a part-time justice of the peace if he didn’t vote on the parole board like he was asked to.
    He had earlier lied to the Arizona Attorney General about making the threat.

    An Arizona communist said about him: ‘I like his honesty. Steiger, no matter what, says the truth.’
    He opposed building a bridge at Red Rock Crossing, saying: ‘You can’t put a bridge at Red Rock Crossing. That’s where Bambi pees.’
    His extortion conviction was overturned.
    When the Arizona Department of Transportation eliminated a needed crosswalk that was to be painted, Steiger painted the crosswalk himself, making him a hero in the eyes of his fellow residents.
