Maupin was unable to vote for himself in the primary election due to the fact that he was a felon still serving probation. The U.S. Constitution does not bar felons from running for office, but the Arizona Constitution does forbid felons on probation or with outstanding restitution from voting. He was convicted of a felony for lying to the FBI about criminal behavior by former Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon. As a result of the conviction, Maupin was required to resign from the Phoenix school board, pay restitution for offering legal services without a law degree to at least two people and serve five years of probation. Maupin's probation was set to end in April but was extended by a judge after prosecutors claimed his performance while on probation was "nothing more than a continuation of his predilection for lying and half-truths."
Maupin would have been eligible to vote for himself should he have advanced past the primary, as his probation was scheduled to end in November.
Maupin received the endorsement of The Great Alaskan Bush Company, a Phoenix strip club. After receiving the endorsement Maupin said, "What can I say? I support freedom of speech, single moms and college students. In the long run, it might not be good for (the club). My goal is to help young ladies get their clothes back on."
Maupin also said the endorsement was huge for his campaign. "Everybody goes in there. Men and women, doctors, lawyers, construction workers, members of the Legislature, I'm told. A lot of people are going to see it."
