Joe Arpaio, Chad Willems, E.J. Montini and the $8 Million Whopper

One million in one month from Camp Arpaio? Not bad jack, Chad.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio's campaign guru Chad Willems is as shameless as you'd expect a guy to be who's funneling suckers' campaign contributions through the bank account of his company, Summit Consulting Group.

A recent comment by Williams in HuffingtonPost, concerning an anti-Arpaio independent expenditure committee run, in part, by Democratic state Representative Ruben Gallego, is illustrative.

"This is just another group out there of people lining their pockets," Willems said of Gallego's group, Citizens for Professional Law Enforcement. "It seems like a full-time employment group for these guys."

I would be tempted to say, "pot-kettle-black," except in Willems' case it's more like "Camelback Mountain-copper pot-brown," and no, Willems ain't the copper pot.

That's because Summit Consulting is making a mint off contributions to Arpaio's re-election campaign.

According to Arpaio's most recent campaign finance report, from August 9 to September 17 of this year, Summit Consulting has been paid nearly $1 million for services rendered. Or, $960,162, to be more precise.

That's gross, not net. Some of it is for TV advertising, for instance. But it's tough to imagine Willems not turning a hefty profit.

Unlike Gallego, who is doing CPLE in hopes of removing Arpaio from power.

So much money is flowing through Summit that, apparently, Willems can't even count it all properly. The total given for "expenditures for operating expenses" is off by a couple hundred thousand dollars.

Willems isn't the only one to get befuddled by all that moolah. Class-A Joe Arpaio-shoe-licker E.J. Montini over at the Arizona Republic likes to let people think Arpaio has $8 million in the bank. Which just happens to be bull.

Final brief filed in arpaio corruption case in 9th circuit,,,

 

http://www.scribd.com/doc/109910222/Final-Brief-in-Arpaio-Corruption-Case-in-9th-Circuit

 

Here it is, AZ law enforcement engaging in felony obstruction of justice to protect a close friend and adviser of sheriff arpaio.  

 

Time for state and federal law enforcement to put on their blindfolds in furtherance of the justice is blind motto -- or is it law enforcement is blind when law enforcement are the criminals.

Usually Mr. Montini writes Arpaio-friendly columns. I think it's because both men are Italian-American.

 

I think Mr. Robb is the one who really goes after the Old Fool.

wtf...

Sorry but this time and maybe the first time i have to dissagree with you FB, Montini has been one of the few critics of Arpaio in the media, he might have a different style than yours but i don't think he really likes Arpaio.

100 million tax dollars meant to  run and improve jail conditions go to ineffective immigration sweeps, publicity stunts and God knows what else..  We watched Arpaio brag for years how he spends more feeding his dogs than inmates yet he cut funds and resources; closed or ignored child rape cases cutting that budget bone dry.  

 

Try that accounting trick at  your job  and you'll get fired and go to prison.  

 

 It's time for a new sheriff and a new board of supervisors who are not beholden to Arpaio's awesume control over the republican politicans.

If the word Arpaio was changed to Penzone, you wouldn't be complaining now would you?

robert_graham
robert_graham topcommenter

And Arpaio's money keeps rolling in.  Can you say that about Penzone???  Of course not.  I wonder why?

Actually, from what I've read, Monty is the most liberal of the bunch he's always critical of ole' joe.

I don't think it's very fair to call Montini a "class A Arpaio shoe licker". The article as a whole was negative and very critical of Arpaio, even if he did repeat Willems' lie.

This is really funny. I read that today, and I thought to myself what is wrong with Montini today? Normally he only writes the wackiest shit about Joe, only slightly less wacky than Lemons. Was there a bitch fight between you two last night Lemons? I can just picture Ed bitch slapping Lemons for some girly reason. You are really going to hurt Montini's feelings Lemons. He looks up to you like a God.

Damn! I guess I've been laboring under the misconception that Montini is a good guy. How could I have been such a fool?

Montini looks like he could be one of Joe's wrinkled nads.

 @JoeArpaioFan If Penzone gets elected and steals, allows guards to murder at will and encourages racial profiling you can bet I'll be after his ass.

 I don't remember reading an article written by EJ Montini that was Arpaio friendly.

@teknik You're right. I really don't understand this article. Comes off pretty shrill and bitchy to me.

 @zhenry9 go read it again, asswipe. montini does not ask that shithead willems one tough q. & he always softballs arpaio

@GreenHornet Montini is not the investigative journalist Lemons is, true. Lemons gets to the bottoms of things and breaks a lot of stories, and I have great respect for him for that. Montini is just a columnist who states his opinion, and it is consistently anti-Arpaio. He included a laundry list of Arpaio's failings in his article that is guaranteed to reach a wide audience. What do you or Lemons have to gain from bitching at him? Montini may not ask ask as many tough questions but I think his level headed and less vindictive tone makes him more effective at getting the message across in many cases. And "asswipe", seriously?

@GreenHornet Once thing I've learned is that those who have served time in Joe's jail are really homophobic like Greenfaggot.
