John McCain: Joe Arpaio an "Embarrassment" on Sex Crimes Fiasco

Here's one reason to like U.S. Senator John McCain: He despises fellow Republican Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and he's never afraid to let you know that he considers Sheriff Joke beneath contempt.

Sure, McCain hasn't exactly been a profile in courage these last few years, what with his pandering to anti-Mexican sentiment, his flip-flopping on immigration reform, his "danged fence" political ad with amateur underwear model and Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, and his dumb, bigoted assertion while touring Wallow fire damage last year that illegal aliens were one reason Arizona has been plagued by forest fires.

Wrong again, gramps. Who just pleaded guilty for sparking last year's hella-destructive Wallow blaze? Two local white dudes. Which goes to show you that scapegoating Mexicans doesn't do diddly to prevent such conflagrations.

Still, when McCain opens up a can of Slappy Joe on the sheriff as the Senator did recently in an interview with Channel 12's Brahm Resnik, you can't help but like the cantankerous, conservative coot.

I cannot see McCain endorsing Penzone, a democrat. He will probably not endorse anyone in this race...........

If any sex crimes in El Mirage have not been investigated, is the job of the El Mirage police department to investigate, not MCSO.  All the attacks against Arpaio show the desperate attempts to falsely discredit him and the Phoenix New Times will stop at nothing to accomplish this even by printing false information.

Good. If the republicans had any brains they would stop saying "illegal alien" and start saying "Legalizing migrants". figure out how to bail themselves out by legalizing people who live here. If corporations are people then why can real people not also buy into the american dream financially? Seeing as how the majority of mexicans i've ever met were incredibly hard working people, Sign a bill at 10:00 am I bet you'd have enough money to build "the dang fence" by the time business closed that day. garunteed. I liked the "slappy joe" quip.

About a year ago he had no comment...Looks like someone wants to keep the votes that are being lost by Jackass Joe... they've got to throw someone under the bus may as well be this Jackass...

Joe will once again say its somehow a politically mtivated attack by the Obama adminstration (uhh, but Joe, John's a republican?), and find it it strange that McCain timed his comment for right before the elections. Joe also hasnt read the rape and molestation reports, but, is sure they are full of falsehoods. These are turning into standard operating procedure answers for him about everything

This is presumably McCain's last term, so he shouldn't have much reason to fear the local GOP's wrath. 

 

It's also yet another reason Stauffer should have stayed Republican and given Joe a primary fight.  It seems he could have gotten at least one high profile endorsement.

 @JoeArpaioFan Go fuck yourself creep! Your sad attempts to prop up that sad old fool are just that. SAD! Like your existence!  This isn't even an issue!! It's documented MCSO fucked this up. Seriously, go collect coins or something, because political commentary just isn't your thing. You're to fucking stupid!

 @JoeArpaioFan if MCSO didnt want to take the cases, then they shouldnt have taken the money to patrol there. Or did you moronic little mind forget that fact???? QUIT making excuses..it happened, facts are out that they were less of a priority to joe and MCSO than cases like dowling and a dbacks fraud case...That is fact, it is not up for dispute (as MCSO has acknowledged this)...next

@JoeArpaioFan MCSO was under contract to provide police services to El Mirage during the years in question. That means Joe's agency was contractually obligated to investigate the crimes (and yes, there WERE crimes and victims), something they failed to do.

 @JoeArpaioFan what is your answer for why joe apologized for the mishandling of these cases if they are not true?

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

 @JoeArpaioFan information supported by arpaio on television (you can watch it on you tube). this is also when MCSO was contracted to provide police coverage and investigation to el mirage, so MCSO was the primary investigative agency. if you cant check your facts, go sit quietly somewhere else, you are disrupting the rest of the class junior

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

the sad thing is, out of all the excuses he will use, we can verify the fact that he never read the reports(or investigated them) the rest is just a string of crap running out of his mouth

 @narizona he has always spoken out against joe...just not that much since the whole immigration issue became a hot topic..he didnt want to alienate voters here. Dont give him too much credit

 @narizona Only if McCain is listening to the right people, would he then make much more rational sense (like in this interview). If only other Republicans would man up and follow McCain's lead, the 80 year old Joker is no doubt---doomed. Then the Great MCSO Reform begins.

 Don't give McCain too much credit here.  It's not like he went out on a limb or anything by saying Arpaio is exactly what he is, "an embarrassment."

 @wtf...  @JoeArpaioFan Interesting you would type that. JAF has made a number of implied threats toward me and I've given him/it several ways to contact me and he/it has not yet done so. Have I revealed my 'part time' employment, I wonder?

 @david_saint01    @JoeArpaioFan the way he's defending arpaio and denying the rapes happened, maybe he's brewers rapist kid "the knife point rapist" and this is his community service, defending arpaio and brewer online
