Mike Stauffer's bid for Maricopa County sheriff resembles the second coming of Olivia Cortes, aiming (albeit amateurishly) at siphoning votes from Democratic candidate for sheriff Paul Penzone, who is currently 5.5 points away from Sheriff Joe Arpaio in a recent poll commissioned by the Penzone camp.
That poll was conducted by the D.C. firm Switchboard communications, and it shows Stauffer in fourth place behind "none of the above."
There's not much Stauffer can do now to maintain his legitimacy, which explains the moronic and deceptive press release and Facebook post just issued by Stauffer's fellow Republican and former Legislative District 7 GOP chair West Kenyon.
Kenyon uses an informal, unscientific January Polldaddy.com poll posted by former Phoenix New Times writer James King, who now works for our New York paper, the Village Voice.
"Our opponent appears to enjoy releasing very unscientific polls," writes Kenyon. "We also decided to release a poll conducted by none other than the Phoenix New Times, a long time supporter until very recently. This screen capture was taken just yesterday. Please know this poll was not a hand picked group of respondents rather a completely random sampling of readers responding at will."
Calling this paper a "long time supporter" of Stauffer is completely bogus. King is just one writer, as am I. And neither King nor I speak for the entire paper. Only Village Voice Media Executive Editor Michael Lacey can do that.
