Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio begs for money

Sheriff Joe Arpaio

A local newspaper (small conservative rag) in the Phoenix area has published an editorial–sounds like a desperate plea–from Joe Arpaio, known nationally as “America’s toughest Sheriff.” Arpaio is vain enough to think that Bernie Sanders has spent any amount of time even thinking about him, other than an afterthought from Bernie’s wife, Jane’s visit to tent city. She thinks the place is inhumane, and it is considering the 100+ summers we have here.

The inmates live in tents in the desert without any air conditioning and where the temperature has registered as high as 122 degrees in the past. I live in Phoenix and have witnessed Joe Arpaio’s antics which include the harassment of the Hispanic community, for which the feds have him in court. Yes, big talking Joe is desperate for contributions because he knows that most of Arizona is fed up with him and will probably put him out to pasture. It’ll be a good thing.

  1. Sounds like a lot, but if the plaintiffs had lost, their lawyers would have gotten next to nothing. Whereas defense attorneys don't have to worry about receiving a paycheck if the government is paying.
