Joe Arpaio Begs for Votes, and Devin Fleenor's Anti-Arpaio Ad Hits TV
Joe practically begs viewers to let him keep his job in this new ad
Sheriff Joe looks like a worried old man in his new TV commercial, the latest in a series of pricey ads that his re-election campaign has been inundating county boob tubes with.
"Despite all the criticism," he says, gesticulating, a little over-eagerly. "I've always been tough on criminals. I will not stop doing the job you elected me to do."

Except when it came to the 400-plus sex crimes in El Mirage and elsewhere that were botched under his regime. Which is the scandal Arpaio obviously is attempting to address in this ad.
Thing is, he's doing it poorly. Look at his body language, listen to his voice. This is not "America's toughest sheriff." This is an exercise in desperation.
