Joe Arpaio's Stooge Mike Stauffer May Be Getting IE Help from an Odd Source (w/Update)
maricopapac.org A pro-Stauffer IE? Spokesman Art Mobley swears it's not. Er, pro-Stauffer, that is.
Republican-turned-Independent candidate for sheriff Mike Stauffer may have almost no money, little support and may be regarded as a massive joke by nearly everyone with a lick of sense in Maricopa County.
Nevertheless, he soon could be getting some indirect assistance from a new independent expenditure committee, one trumpeted by none other than Stauffer shill DeeDee Blase.

It calls itself the Committee for Independent Non-Partisan Law Enforcement, and its website reads, at first blush, like an indirect endorsement for Stauffer, the wannabe-spoiler candidate in this election.
"Mike Stauffer is the only candidate for Sheriff with command experience and REAL law enforcement leadership skills," it states. "VOTE to give Arizona relief from the embarrassment of four more years of Joe Arpaio backwater justice."
Of Democrat Paul Penzone, the only serious candidate attempting to deny Sheriff Joe Arpaio a sixth term, the site has this to say:
"While Democratic Candidate Paul Penzone would be an improvement over Arpaio, he lacks the experience to organize and lead the nation's most infamous legal bureaucracy."
Yet the person who answers the cell phone listed on the site is none other than Art Mobley, a longtime broadcaster in the Valley, whom I remember from his involvement with the liberal Nova M radio network and KPHX 1480.
