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.
