Joe Arpaio, Don't Cry: Feathered Bastard's Back Monday

Sadly, I am away till Monday on a trip planned long ago, and will not be able to blog regularly till I'm back in town.

For continuing coverage of Paul Penzone's bid to replace our octogenarian autocrat, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, please consult my colleague Matt Hendley's reports on New Times' Valley Fever blog.

Apparently, the Arpaio camp has gone nuclear, and has purchased air time to attack Penzone on an incident from 2003 involving his ex-wife, which I first wrote about in July.

I haven't seen the ad yet, but you can be certain that just like the attacks lobbed by Republican-turned-Independent spoiler-wannabe Mike Stauffer and his screw-loose functionary DeeDee Blase, it will be chock full of lies.

The mere fact Arpaio's camp is going the Blase route indicates Arpaio is in BIG trouble. I suspect this ad has been in the can for some time. The release of poll numbers showing Penzone 4.7 points behind Arpaio no doubt prompted this salvo by Joe.

Don't get it twisted. Joe is on the run. And Blase and Stauffer are assisting his campaign, each in their own way. If they're not getting paid for what they're doing, they should be.

Many people have their own reason why they think Arpaio is the last person worth voting for for Sheriff.  I myself have read plenty of articles about people who entered the Maricopa county jail system breathing and were dead a few hours or a few days later.  I have hope that Paul Penzone will do everything possible to eliminate needless deaths in the jail system.  I want the county to stop paying out millions of dollars to families of people who have died needlessly as a result of Joe Arpaio and his policies.  I plan to vote for Paul Penzone come election day.  Please join me.  


Joke is clearly getting scared if he's now starting to fling mud.  I just say the ad.  Disgusting.  And far from the truth/reality.


Hopefully my new anti MCSO shurf commercial is done by then.


It is such a pain when you make a commercial the LEGAL way...I used music so that's why it's taking so long...Federal copyright laws....


Arpaio is Arizona's Jerry Sandusky!


He has no room to cast stones at any one.


To knowingly ignore Hundreds of reported cases of "Child Rape" is No Better than the Child Molesters themselves!


To vote for Arpaio is the same as condoning "Child Rape" period!


To: True Justice?


Arpaio should be facing charges, not running for any type of "Law Enforcement".



 Really, Arpaio should get credit where credit is due him ...  At least this time Arpaio didn't set-up another illegal PAC with his command staff, have his rich "possemen" "donate" hundreds of thousands of dollars to his illegal PAC, have his scapegoat loverboy commanders illegally funnel the illegal funds to the AZGOP to illegally pay for his trash and bash commercial that is packed full of lies against his opponent ...

 @WhoKnows same shit he did to Dan Saban. he was losing it then also so he did what he does best...........HE LIED about Saban


 @DNichols You blame Sheriff Arpaio for enforcing the law because you are the criminal the laws were meant to protect us from.  If I were a law breaker I guess I would protest laws too.


 @yourproductsucks So you think Rachel.


Actually, I keep myself plenty busy with my job (I actually have one of those, unlike you) and I do have two sick family members I care for (also unlike you)


I despise the MCSO shurf (I know you do too) and I would like to see the Old Fool booted out. 


Hi Jaffy--------------------------DOH!


 @ISupportArpaio  @DNichols I am no Criminal, I am a Hard working Tax Payer that is sick of Arpaio's Racism, Hatred, and Blatant Disrepect for the Law of the Land!


Arpaio has betrayed "We the People", he has knowingly allowed Child Rape, even for it to continue years after being reported to his Office!


Arpaio is the Criminal!


He should be facing charges for not "Enforcing The Law"!


To knowingly allow Children to be Raped when it is your sworn Duty to uphold the Law is a Crime, and Arpaio is no better than the Child Molesters he allowed to Rape Children!


I don't protest any "Laws" I want a Sheriff that enforces them all!


Not just the ones he chooses to!


A vote for Arpaio is the same as condoning "Child Rape".
