Joe Arpaio Slammed in New Attack Ad by Citizens for a Better Arizona

Cost $6,000 and worth every penny...

For years, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has successfully peddled the myth that he's "America's toughest sheriff," but his record of wasting taxpayer money, pursuing his political enemies and, worst of all, bungling the investigations of sex crimes on a massive, unprecedented scale, seems to finally be ripping the facade away from this phony lawman.

That's why I give big kudos to Citizens for a Better Arizona -- the group that put ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce out to pasture -- for releasing this slick new anti-Arpaio attack ad today. 

Reportedly, it was aired on Cox cable during the GOP presidential debate and cost around $6K. 

I'd say CBA got its money's worth.

You know, you could fill a library or three with all the articles New Times has published over the years about Arpaio's corrupt regime, one of the best of late being my colleague Ray Stern's recent cover story on the sheriff's sex crimes debacle.

Stern writes, "Victims of sex crimes -- mostly children -- in [El Mirage] and throughout the county still are paying for Arpaio's misguided policies. Rapists and child molesters got away with their crimes."

Disturbing stuff. Thing is, voters need to be pummeled with this information over and over again, so that they cannot avoid the message that a vote for Arpaio is a vote for incompetence, abuse of power, and letting sex criminals go free.

CBA's ad is yet another way of doing that. Arpaio, it seems, is in for a long, arduous election year. By the time its over, he may wish he'd resigned.

VERY URGENT NEWS ALERT: All of us readers of the Newtimes rag need to join Gustavo Arellano and Steve Gallardo in denouncing their stay in the US. Come with us, my brown skinned occupiers of "El Norte" and return to Mexico and take over the country from the pale skin descendants of the colonial masters.  Let the brown people take over their contry of Mexico. Are you with us my fellow occupiers?? That is real news that the Newtimes needs to cover!

Joe Arpiao is a criminal. How this prick gets away with spending more money per day on feeding police dogs than he does on county inmates is beyond me. What a fucked up concept. This man is the epidomy of corruption and frakly, evil. Moreover, Arpaio takes pleasure in the mistreatment of the individuals he feels deserve his wrath. Sound famliar? Perhaps a lot like a short German man in the 30's and 40's, answered to the name Hitler?
The average temperature inside one of the tents at "Tent City" in the summer is 140 degrees. That fat bastard, Arpiao, not only condones, but forces human beings to live in such conditions (another criminal act). As far as can see this man violates Human Rights Laws on a daily basis. That fat fuck Arpaio should suffer the same treatment that he has subjected so many others to for his own criminal behavior.

This is a fantastic ad targeting the evil misdeeds of Maricopa County's senile shurf.

The Old Fool needs to be put on the defensive. After all, he and his office have absolutely no excuses for the 432 bungled sex crimes against children (which is disgusting and sickening in and of itself), his history of wasting taxpayer dollars, the wrongful deaths, etc.

Keep up the great work, CBA.

"As for the sex crime thing....get over it....LibTards love sex abusers, just ask any Occupod."

Did you even read what you posted? I don't give a fuck what color skin someone has, when children have felony offenses committed against them, it is the job of police to ensure that crime victims rights are protected.

It is the job of police to ensure that the crime is thoroughly investigated and that the criminal is rounded up and kept off my streets.

Arpaio and the MCSO have failed, miserably, on both counts.

Jesus get a clue and the facts before you post.

Truth hurts, doesn't it?  I'm not a democrat and have never been a member of a union, much less a "thug."  However, it would by progress to rid this county of sadistic, conniving, vindictive Joe Arpaio whose abuse of power under color of law is legendary.

The left and Democrats?  Are you saying that right-wingers like increased violent crime, or  that they think sex crimes against children shouldn't be investigated adequately, or that spending lots of taxpayer money defending against lawsuits is a good idea?  I thought those were the kinds of things that you guys accused liberals of, especially when you're trying to get more money for police pork-barrel spending.

Why do you choose to believe the lies? Why do you choose to be screwed out of your tax money to fund this idiot? You believe the lies and dismiss the incompetence and illegalities that this man and his cronies have perpetrated on this county.Is it easier to believe the lies or face the truth...he isn't who he says he is, hasn't done his job as he professes he has, and has blood on his hands. You condone his behavior? Shame on you!
There are plenty of sited articles for you to read here. I suggest you do that.This has nothing to do with "the left" or Democrats...it has to do with justice.Law and order. This man covers up and blames others for everything that HE hasn't done. He's sure got YOU fooled!

O.K. then let's use the statements of Arpaio's own people talking about his actions and abuses of power:

"I think it was CRIMINAL" - Loretta Barkell - former MCSO Chief Financial Officer

"Willful criminal conduct took place" - Frank Munnell, CURRENT MCSO Chief Deputy

"I will no longer sit idly by and watch Joe Arpaio abuse his power" - Sheila Polk (R) - Yavapai County Attorney personally selected by Arpaio to oversee investigations. 

Arpaio is a corrupt criminal.  The Department of Justice should quit playing politics and indict.

The AZ Republic is a bunch of wimps. They have no "grit" unlike New Times which Broke the Babeu story, and then AZ Republic jumps right on board. But the AZ republic went after the gay issue and the posting of the photos online thing. The fact that Babeu might have threatened an allegedly illegal immigrant with deportation got one paragraph. And that paragraph was maybe two sentences long. New Times doesn't fuck around. They report on Sheriff Arpaio, and Russell Pearce and Jan Brewer and all those other sad sorry fuckers with facts that have been backed up. AZ Republic does a half ass job of that. When Marty Atencio (sorry if I spelled his name wrong) died in jail, the same week the DOJ accused the MCSO of racial profiling and descrimination, That should have been a death blow for Arpai-asshole. AZ Republic should have looked into, How many deaths has occoured in Sheriff Joe's jails since he's been Sheriff? I can count four easily that I remember from New Times reports. When I looked into New Times archives? I counted something like 9 deaths, mostly caucasian including a white lady who died from diabetic shock. I wrote a letter to the editors of the AZ Republic. All I wrote to them was the basics. The number of dead inmates at MSCO jails. How many died each year Arpaio has been Sheriff. And the fact that most of the dead were caucasians. No mentioning of names of the deceased or of New Times articles. They emailed me back with a "Thank you for your letter to the editor" and that was it. I suggest that we people that know the score send letters to the editors of weak ass rags like the AZ Republic and ask them to ask their journalists to ask the really tough questions. Ask the journalists to talk to the victims of Arpaio's atrocities. If the AZ Republic were as hard ass like the NewTimes were on Arpaio, he would not have gotten re-elected last time around. My final analysis: AZ Republic is too soft on our elected leaders. I plan on writing them alot more in the future, and asking them to get on that ass!!!

Here were the comments I made regarding the story you are referring...

This is, by far, the best price of reporting on the Sheriffs Office I have ever read. Thank you for your effort on this Mr Stern. I thought noone would compare to Mark Flatten's work but this? It's award winning.You captured the essence of evil lurking in the halls of the 19th floor. I swore I was done commenting on here but I could not allow this piece of perfection go without notice.What seals this story is the professionalism. There is not one sentence that lacks credibility. The lack of name calling and profanity puts this piece over the top!Bravo!

Maybe you weren't paying attention when making your rash statement, or maybe you were consciously and intentionally lying.  Either way, I doubt you will retract your false statement.

If one were being honest they would have prefaced the above posted quotes with the following-

O.K. then let's use the statements of Arpaio's own people talking and spin them to look like they are talking about his actions and abuses of power.

Loretta Barkell's comment in proper context was referring to David Hendershott, not Arpaio.

Frank Munnell's comment in proper context was referring to allegations made reference the activity of Hendershott, Black and Fox, not Arpaio.

Sheila Polk is not one of Arpaio's "own people" but works in an entirely different County.

Nice spin Counselor.  The end does NOT justify the means, Elder.

Your quotes appear to be contextually sound. I'm not sure why Chad Snow feels an obligation to twist lies to attack Arpaio when there is certainly enough evidence out there to facilitate an intelligent, honest argument against the guy, much like the argument you provided above...and you don't have a law degree like Chad does.

"I am conservative and passionately believe in limited government, not the totalitarianism that is spreading before my eyes. The actions of Arpaio and Thomas are a disservice to the hundreds of men and women who work in their offices, and a threat to the entire criminal-justice system."

--Sheila Polk, Republican Yavapai County Attorney, from an op-ed piece published in the Arizona Republic on 12/23/2009.

Polk was selected by Candy Andy to resolve the criminal charges against Stapley. I remember her having to deal with Henderbulk and the MCSO shurf, and it was not pretty...

Gila County Attorney Daisy Flores said essentially the same thing when she refused to prosecute Stapley and Wilcox.

I think Flores said of Wilcox that her transgressions did not rise to the level of crimes.

Flores felt she could indict Stapley on 7 Class 6 felonies regarding his campaign for the National Association of Counties. She felt that what the MCSO shurf did, in concert with Candy Andy and Aubuchon, was so egregious her case against Stapley was tainted beyond repair.
