Joe Arpaio Recall? Randy Parraz Says No Involvement in Effort Claimed by Petition Partners (w/Updates)
They're off a year on the date, unless this is a bad joke...
I'm waiting for a call back from Andrew Chavez, proprietor of Petition Partners, about a rather odd message on his company's Twitter account, announcing that a recall of Sheriff Joe Arpaio is to commence this Thursday, and claiming that $1.3 million has been committed to the project.
I say it's rather odd, because Randy Parraz, President of Citizens for a Better Arizona, the group responsible for the successful 2011 recall of ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce and the group considered most likely to recall Joe (up until now), seemed genuinely surprised when I phoned him about the Tweet.
"We have not filed anything [regarding a recall of Arpaio] and we have no relationship with Petition Partners," Parraz told me.
