Joe Arpaio Recall Still On, Despite Lack of Support from (Some) Deep-Pocket Democrats (w/Correction)

Support of the Arpaio recall should be a no-brainer for Dems, especially those in Maricopa County.

Those Democrats who do not support the recall should be branded as traitors. The removal of Arpaio from power means more to this county and this state than the advancement of any one Democrat's career.

From this point on, the two questions I have for Democrat politicians are: Did you sign the Arpaio recall, and what have you done to support it?

And if the replies are not satisfactory, I have no use for them.

This is why the Democrats are impotent in this state, and why I think I despise Democrats sometimes even more than Republicans.

I mean, who's worse, Arpaio, or the pathetic excuse for a Democrat who does nothing to kick him to the curb?

Can the recall still succeed? It can, but it is now a longer shot than before.

The loss of Sign Here Petitions hurts, in part, because Sign Here was verifying the validity of signatures, a crucial part of the process.

Without Sign Here, volunteers will need to take up the slack.

I'd rather rely on the certainties of money than a wing and a prayer, but at this point, it seems we have only the latter.

CORRECTION 5:06PM: All apologies to former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard, who left me a message a moment ago, informing me that my source was incorrect, and that he is in favor of the recall of Sheriff Arpaio.

"I am supporting Randy and his efforts in the recall," Goddard stated, "and [I] have a signed petition in front of me."

Kudos to Terry for leading the way! Now let's hope all other AZ Dems get on board.

lmao I'm working on drumming up support for the Old Fool's recall in his homestate of Massachusetts. Maybe once the Justice Department (I've heard rumors they're gonna reopen their investigation) nails him we can get some sanity back in this state.

How's it going folks?  Still short of votes huh?   Bahahahahaha!

The reason politicians don't run in front of battles like these is evidenced by their sucess in the Political Arena.  To stand in front of this and fail is political suicide.  Synema, Napolitano, Goddard, even Wilcox have played nice with Arpaio and benefited from doing so.

Former mayor of Phoenix (what's his name again?) didn't and now what is he doing?

You won't get any support in this assenine Joe recall from me....I have known this New Times is the biggest bunch of liberal whiney crap I have ever laid eyes on. The MAJORITY of Arizonans voted for him again, so just effing deal with it. I have deal with that dam Obama.....sucks not having the person you want in office, doesn't it?....

Take notice: The recall campaign has been infiltrated by friends of mine and what has been reported to me is despicable.  Because they are desperate for signatures, any signatures, they are collecting signatures from people ineligible to vote. Names are being made up on the forms and they are turning them in to be notarized ön their word of honor". They must think that the signatures won't be verified being that they have been notorized but did the notory personally verify each signature? Of course not.  It's like the fox guarding the hen-house.  Face it, the campaign is so full of lies and deceit.

Yeah I heard you people are broke. Great!  How many more suckers are you going to try and feed bull to for money? Face it you're washed up. It's over. Have the auditors showed up yet? You better be sure your contributions went for legitimate purposes only.

Oh yes, there is such a strong push to get rid of Sheriff Joe that you have to pay someone to go out and get signatures!  Bahahahaha!  What a groundswell movement that is!  "There are a number of influential Democrats who have not been helpful"...well that's because they are smart enough to realize just how stupid this "Recall" reall is!   They are not going to get behind a "lost" cause!  Sorry folks, that's just not going to happen!  If you are unhappy with Sheriff Joe then run somebody against him.  Oh wait a minute, you already tried that didn't you.  And that didn't work very well either did it.  Hahahahaha!  Joe won, you lost.  Simep as tha folks.

@truthseekeraz Actually the informed taxpayers are the people who reelected Mr. Arpaio. The uninformed voters are the people like you.

@truthseekeraz maybe because you only talk to progressives, hispanics and uninformed young people. The idea that a massive fraudulent election and coverup took place to reelect an 80-year-old sheriff is asinine.

@truthseekeraz @toystoreyspot Why yell GOP PAID TROLL when you should take a look at yourself and yell PAID DEM TROLL too because it seems that you people can't find volunteers, you have to pay the trolls to collect signatures. At least we get so many volunteers but you can't say the same about yourselves now can you??????

@truthseekeraz @toystoreyspot another person who likes lawbreakers...I wish I was paid....you're the reason why everything are all effed up...you would like lawlessness. Its what separates us from the shithole to our south is the laws...or don't you believe in law?...can i go rob a bank and keep all i get?...or do you think someone might have a problem with it?....hmm?...dumba$$..

@ted.bollinger @truthseekeraz Got that right....libs will be the ruination of us all...especially if they can get all the illegal parasites a legal status, they have no clue the devastation they will do to the economy. I even think it might lead to racial tensions or worse.....there are many that sick and tired of their arrogance and sense that the US owes them something for simply being in the US....THEY DESERVE NOTHING!!...

@ted.bollinger whos to say THEY arent the ones planting the bad signatures? Cant believe them, their bias is clearly evident..so, all you have done is admit that its possible that pro arpaio people are intentionally tainting the signatures..thanks for sharing

@ted.bollinger @TeaPublican care to talk about the Atencio case genius? Do you know what was said in the depositions and why the county is so desperate to settle? lol i do =)

@ted.bollinger @truthseekeraz lol i do respect law enforcement., hell im friends with a few cops. MCSO however doesnt enforce all laws, just the ones they want to..and what about anytime their employees break the law, like DUI? also, when their case clear percentage gets above 30% we can have that discussion.

@ted.bollinger @david_saint01 @truthseekeraz for the people that profess to stand for the Constitution, you sure dont seem to like it very much...those are American citizens also..and though our Constitution says they are citizens, you refuse to accept them as such...guess you really dont like America all that much do you?

@david_saint01 @ted.bollinger @TeaPublican Go right ahead. But what I have to tell is juicier that what you have. Does "sign here and we'll take care of the rest" mean anything to you? I know that because you people are so desperate for signatures you accept anything even ones from unauthorized voters. I have already counted at least two dozen duplicate signatures and signatures from made up names. You think that just because you claim each one is legitimate that the notary will give their stamp of approval but think again. Each signature will be verified and at least half so far  will end up being invalidated.

@ted.bollinger @david_saint01 lol guess i rubbed you the wrong way with all my facts that you have no answers for..so you resort to threats, per usual for the pro arpaio people that profess to support the law..even as they break it! lol and yes, your threats can and will be forwarded to my cop friends..maybe you will change your views once you get to experience tent city for yourself...what do you think? PS comment is already captured and saved...

@ted.bollinger @david_saint01 @TeaPublican LMAO sure, thats why they are paying to get signatures on him right idiot? tea bags are nothing but hateful, spiteful little children who cant even get along in the same room for 30 mins! hahahaha yes, ive been to one of their meetings.

@stephen.lemons Any motivation that leads to positive change is positive, I suppose.  It's been at least a year since I've been in your presence so my observations are dated.  Good luck to you in your endeavor.

Well, knock on wood, I've been exercising, eating my veggies, and have stopped smoking for going on a year now. I also weigh about 50 pounds less than when I was a food columnist years back. So hopefully, I'll get to do the fandango on Joe's grave. Gives me one thing to live for,  I reckon. ;)

@stephen.lemons @ted.bollinger @truthseekeraz did someone that just posted an online threat against me, someone who pretends to stand for a sheriff because he upholds the law, call someone else a moron? HAHA look in the mirror asshole...you made your hypocrisy blatantly apparent. IE you are full of shit
