Joe Arpaio, Will He Get the "Nogales Mayor Treatment" from Terry Goddard and the FBI?

obrother.jpg
Damn! We're in a tight spot! Where's Lisa Allen when I need her?

Watching the footage of Nogales Mayor Octavio Garcia-Von Borstel and his father Octavio Garcia Suarez dragged before a judge in shackles and prison stripes after their arrests on charges of bribery, theft, fraud and money laundering, raises a few interesting questions regarding Maricopa County's crotchety top constable, Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The indictments of Von Borstel and his pop were announced with great fanfare by Attorney General Terry Goddard yesterday, with press releases and mug shots, and media availability for TV crews. You know, to get those all-important sound bites in for the evening news, natch.

"These charges are serious violations of the law," the press release quoted Goddard as saying. "Because some charges involve the official actions of an elected official, they violate the public trust."

FBI Special Agent Nathan T. Gray had words to say as well, as his agency did the investigation and made the collar.

"When a public official allegedly commits criminal acts it erodes the public's trust," he explained. "The FBI and our law enforcement partners are determined to address public corruption at all levels of government."

Now, which elected Sand Land official comes to mind when you think of "public corruption" and violating "the public trust"?

Maybe a certain portly "shurf" with a bulbous W.C. Fields schnoz?

Consider this: the investigation into Nogales' mayor took five months. The AG's office and the FBI have been investigating Arpaio's office for two years.

I asked Goddard's spokeswoman Molly Edwards about the discrepancy. She declined to comment specifically on the AG's probe into the shenanigans involving the Sheriff's Command Association. But she did reply in general.

"No two cases are alike," she asserted. "Some take longer, some are shorter. There are all different kinds of cases."

Fair enough. Still, Arpaio's misdeeds in office stretch back 17 years, and they've been documented ad nauseum. For instance, I recently blogged about the affidavit of former MCSO Lt. Bobby Wetherell, whose allegations of MCSO wrongdoing go back to 1996.

There are plenty of others whose allegations have predated the FBI's current investigation, like Arpaio's former right hand man Tom Bearup, ex-MCSO Lieutenant Roy Reyer, MCSO Deputy David Cool, and Phoenix attorney Mike Manning, who handed over boxes of info indicating possible evidence tampering by the MCSO in the killing of inmate Scott Norberg to the U.S. Attorneys Office, back when Janet Napolitano was U.S. Attorney for Arizona. (She did zilch, of course.)

The point is, the feds have known for years that the MCSO is a giant garbage can filled to the brim with wriggling maggots, and they've done nothing to upend that can and hose it out.

But that aside, if the U.S. Department of Justice scores indictments out of the grand jury still looking into the MCSO, would Arpaio, Chief Deputy David Hendershott and all the rest face the humiliation of being arrested, put in stripes, and placed in shackles?

FBI spokesman Manny Johnson wouldn't comment on anything Arpaio-related, but he said it's not the FBI's call as to whether a suspect earns steel bracelets or a summons to appear. That decision, Johnson told me, would have to come from a magistrate.

Still, I do recall that former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was handcuffed when he was arrested on federal corruption charges at his North Side Chicago home in 2008 by the FBI. He didn't receive a mere summons. Why should the likes of Hendershott or Arpaio be any different, if indictments are filed?

Plus, you know Hendy and Joe would go there. That pair has always been all about the perp walk -- even if they know they can't make charges stick, even if they know the county will be sued for false arrest.

If there's any payback for all of Arpaio's bad karma, the FBI will one day be pounding on Joe and Ava's door in Fountain Hills. And if the feds arrest him on a Friday night, he could be in stir till Monday morning, perhaps with Hendershott as his cellie. See, I'm told the magistrates only do Monday through Friday.

ooooo..so burned. Head back to your unkept bed and dream of better days at MCSO as you continue to misuse the tax dollars I have entrusted to your idiot hero and employer Joe Arpaio. Why the focus on Arpiehole? Because most of us who would prefer not waste money, tend to focus on getting out of money losing deals unless you see that Arputo is somehow saving us money....hahaha...ya saving us money.....soon very soon.

An apparent Shakespeare wannabe calling herself/himself/ITSELF "Shoot 'Em At The Border" responded to this article,

"Hark! Hark! Methinks The Fat Fucktard should expose the Phoenix corruption also and work on getting Phil Gordon, Jack Harris, and cronies dragged off in chains like the Nogales crook mayor. We're not holding our breathe, considering that Lemons is a paid propagandist for Gordon and the corrupt Phoenix cops, pawns of the dope cartels and human smugglers.

Your mother must be ashamed, fat boy - her son now reduced to sucking off Carlos Slim and the cartel bosses. Wipe that CUM off your face, Fucktard."

These Associates are getting so obscene and gross, we almost didn't post that one. Unfortunately we were ordered to put it up. The hatred of Mr. Lemons appears to be increasing, but he's used to it by now.

Check out www.badphoenixcops.blogspot.co... for the latest on Phoenix police and government corruption. That's www.badphoenixcops.com - where the TRUTH hurts.

TIF on the blog, online and on time.

I think there's a fear in Goddard's camp, that arresting the Almighty Joe would alienate moderate Republicans who LOVE how he chases corn vendors out of Sun City.

Tommy Collins
Tommy Collins

Hock, I will take exception to your implication that there may be corn vendors in Sun City. That would imply some of the citizens in Sun City might have teeth with which to eat such corn. Also, you may recall the Flaccid Fool once said, "Our intelligence tells us that some of the corn these vendors use comes from drop houses". From what I can tell the shurf supporters are both intellectually challenged and very likely can count their usable teeth with two fingers, either hand (maybe).

Well, it is a good thing there is no statute of limitations for misuse of public funds. that's good for us bad for Joe, because the FBI (Fucking Bumbling Idiots) DOJ (Dumbies or Jokers) and the AG's (Ass Goosebumps) are taking a long time to prosecute this idiot and make an arrest decision.So Joe Ar-pendejo will have all charges dropped and dismissed based on the 6th ammendment issue of right to a speedy trial, because none of the feds or ag's office are able to, or are afraid to charge him and move on the cases that the NT has investigated and handed to them on a silver platter.JOE WILL WIN AGAIN UNLESS THESE IDIOTS MOVE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The polls for the Gov are pretty much one sided. Though, like Terry Goddard, the towel shouldn't be thrown in. But thinking reality, Goddard should leave office with his integrity intact and just indict or direct charge someone MCSO. Otherwise, Goddard failure to act is an act of omission to fail to act in the face of good evidence and eye witness testimony. The goal as the top prosecutor should be to represent the client (me and my fellow citizens) and not to simply be re-elected...erego Joe Arpaio.

Great article we all can only hope that justice will be served someday. A lot is going to have to happen though before the new County Attorney is in office as Arpaio's boy he's going to block all he can. He may even put Joe in a "program" hiding him from the feds based on his cooperation with some trumped up county matter.

Also, the feds won't find Joe at his home in Founain Hills much if they go looking for him there. Word has it that Joa and Ava rotate between a number of hotels and resorts rather than staying at home under the guise of "security for the sheriff" concerns. In reality its to avoid service or arrest by the feds.

The FBI DOJ and the Arizona State Attorney's Office have lost the publics trust and have shown themselves to be incompetent and fearful of the flaccid fool. Because of their political insecurities none of them want to make the first move on Hendy and Ar-payaso. For this reason several dems wont vote for Goddard eventhough, he is probably the best candidate for gov. But he has no balls. He should have dun did what he should have already!!!!!!!!! Otherwise Boob-boo Brewer will have to did into office!!!!!!!!!! So therefore, NOTHING WILL HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suspect you're right. After all, the current U.S. Attorney used to be Janet Napolitano's top handmaiden and, as Lemons pointed out, she did nothing.

Stephen, No one has painted a better picture of MCSO's Arpaio and his henchmen.

The FBI and Terry Goddard are sending a strong message out to our rogue top KKKonstable. And the "Flaccid" old "Fool" was thinking:

"Something wicked this way comes."

That's called JUSTICE!

You can almost picture arpaio trembling with great fear. And that's what I call some good news for the American people.

Hendershott is quaking in his boots, too.

After he stops, his adipose continues to quiver like jelly for several minutes.

It's a disturbing sight.

I personally have no faith that the current state attorney general has the internal fortitude to actually do ANYTHING with regard to the MCSO shurf and his minions. It's apparently too close to the election and there must be something lingering that our state A.G. doesn't want made public before then. But then who knows what has been going on around the water cooler in the halls of justice?

I think it's just that Arpaio would bark back at Goddard with horrific ferocity. And Goddard probably just doesn't want that right now...
