Joe Arpaio Recall: Give Joe the Pink Slip and Help Retire Him from Office

pinkjoejo.jpeg
Joe playing with pink undies when he was still fat and sassy. These days he looks like death warmed over...

I've been thinking about sending Sheriff Joe Arpaio a note expressing my deep concern for his health, and suggesting that he resign before the MCSO ends up being Phoenix's version of Weekend at Bernie's, with Joe in the starring role.

In order to drive home the point, I was considering inscribing my message on a banana peel and sending it through the post, but the folks at Respect Arizona have an even better idea:

Let's all send Joe a pink slip.

And no, not the one Ava used to wear on their anniversary. Loooong ago.

This pink slip will cost you $2, money that will be funneled into the effort to force a recall election by scoring the 335,317 valid signatures from qualified county electors by the May 30 deadline.

Send Joe Arpaio a pink slip. C'mon, you know you want to...

Actually, it's a pink postcard, and you can even write your own friendly message on it via Respect Arizona's website.

Like, "It couldn't happen to a nicer guy," "Next time, Joe, use the Hoveround," or, "Remember, don't leave the walker at home."

For those who feel a little sorry for our corrupt top constable due to his wounded wing, think of it this way: You'll be doing him and the county a favor. We all know 80 is too old to run the sheriff's office. Arpaio's recent slip and fall, and the length of his recovery, proves it.

Time for him to step aside, and if he won't do it voluntarily, the recall will put a shoe to the sheriff's fanny.

There are but 33 days left for the recall effort to score the necessary sigs. Thirty-three days is a world and more. Can it be done? Si, se puede. Will it be done? That remains to be seen. But as I've argued heretofore, we have no choice but to try.

Actually, I guess you could say we can choose to do nothing, and let the octogenarian autocrat stay put till 2016. But I really don't see that as an option.

So fire up those pink slips, people. Send as many as you can. Let the old codger know how many people want to help him stay in Fountain Hills where he belongs.

It's PARAMOUNT to take the MEDIA WHORE out of office, failing to do so, it'd B hell to pay. Keep in mind that probably He's behind the effor to put "ANDY" CANDY on the Governor's seat. Perhaps They feel that Their bullshit Lawsuits and Conspiracies were not finished.Is not that I think that He'll be in office on those days, but still He could do some damage, acting behind the scenes, unless of course, "He hangs up the boots", which would be the best that could ever happens. N-Way. I woudn't doubt that with all the commotion caused by this, TWOTIMES PEARCE would pop up along, wanting a piece of the pie also. Now imagine the State of Arizona under the rule of these LUNATICS. ANITHYNG CAN HAPPENS IN ARIZONA, and there's enough proof already, when the OLD FAILURE was re-elected.

The elderly elected official at MCSO doesn't seem to be doing very well these days. This can only mean there is, indeed, hope for the future of our county and state. 

Retirement for the old man seems to be glimmering on the horizon.

When I clicked the link to go donate at the postcard website, I got an ad popup.

I don't know that I've ever used the word "crass" before, but that's the word that popped up in my head when I saw that New Times was making a buck from this campaign.

The intent of the recall provision was to allow the people to deal with misconduct in office that shouldn’t wait until the next election to be corrected. Instead, it’s being used as a do-over for people who are simply disappointed with the election results and get a kick out of throwing their weight around.

IN OTHER WORDS, THEY ARE SORE LOSERS.

The recall effort is relying on signature gatherers from out of state, but it seems that the Arpaio critics in 2012 made an issue of Arpaio's out-of-state support. It has been reported that an analysis at the time showed nearly 80 percent of Arpaio's campaign donors lived outside Arizona.

Okay then, why then are Arpaio critics relying on out of state petitioners if they criticized Arpaio's out of state donations in 2012?  They are nothing but a bunch of fucking hypocrites just out to steal your money.  I look forward to the audit of their group because people will be going to jail for fraud.

The State Press reports "the Recall Arpaio recall campaign is a losing battle. Sheriff Joe has never had any problem winning re-election.  In November, it seemed that he was at his most vulnerable, but he still won re-election by a comfortable margin. The only way Sheriff Joe is going to removed is if he retires or dies. I don’t see him ever leaving office against his will.”

So there you have it!

SHERIFF JOE RECALL EFFORT FLOUNDERING.

The Washington Times has reported that Arpaio's opponents are having trouble obtaining the number signatures they need in their petition to recall "America's Sheriff" Joe Arpaio.  The Times reports that anti-Arpaio forces are reportedly far behind in their goal.

Confidential sources report that Respect Arizona's "Recall Arpaio" group may be responsible for sending the mail bomb to Arpaio's office and authorities are investigating.

SHERIFF JOE RECALL PETITIONERS FIND SIGNATURES HARD TO COME BY

Obtaining signatures for a petition to recall Sheriff Joe Arpaio is proving an uphill battle.

It was reported that volunteers’ latest effort took place at a music festival that was targeted for its huge crowd size and liberally-minded attendees but shortly after setting up camp, recall workers found themselves facing an even larger opposition group - Supporters of Sheriff Joe that TURNED OUT IN DROVES.

(I was there, did you recognize me?)

It has been reported that Respect Arizona's petition workers admit they have to rely mostly on volunteers, which they say are declining. They admit they are out of money and their donations have basically dried up.

David Berman, a senior research fellow at ASU said “I don’t see this attracting a lot of money for the recall people,”

robert_graham

By the way, all the signatures on the petitions will be verified and validated. Duplicate signatures and votes from dead people and ineligible voters including those who are not registered to vote in Maricopa County will be thrown out. Each signature will be scrutinized heavily and the final results will be posted.  

It's obvious that because you people are desperate you will resort to any means necessary to get signatures even if they are not legitimate.  Just because you have a notary doesn't mean diddly squat because the notary has not personally verified the signatures you present to them.  It's like the hen guarding the henhouse.

@JoeArpaioFan 

"The intent of the recall provision was to allow the people to deal with misconduct in office"

Where does it say that? Oh, that's right, it doesn't.

The law is a very specific thing Robert and if it doesn't say that specifically, which it doesn't, you don't get to assume it.

Even if the 'misconduct' aspect you state were to be true, and I am not saying it is, just because YOU feel there has not been misconduct does not mean others feel the same way, so they have as much right to do this as you would if the situation were reversed.

Welcome to due process Robert. I know you hate that since you would like everything to be only the way you want it, the world according to Robert, but this is not a dictatorship and you are not the dictator, no matter how much you would like to be.

valleynative
valleynative topcommenter

@JoeArpaioFan  If it had been intended to be used only in the case of misconduct, the provision in the Arizona Constitution would have mentioned that.  What it says is that the reasons for the recall have to be printed on the petition.  If enough of the voters are unhappy with the winner after at least 6 months in office, they can petition for a "do-over".  If he wins the recall election, he can't be recalled again during his term unless the petitioners are willing to pay for the previous election.

The recall provision allows the citizens to remove certain odious cretins from office. Including but not limited to the Flaccid Failure of MCSO.

@JAFFYDUCK. That POS was able to be re-elected by possibly buying votes and all kinds of "tricks" that He is well known for. but a RECALL, He is going to get His ass handed to Him, that's either by the recall, natural death or by a goverment entity that I heard is looking into the posibility of taking Him out of affice, since He is not fulfilling His duties lately-which He has never done, I think- instead "MEDIA WHORING". That time could've been put to better use by executing at least one of those FELONY WARRANTS that's been sitting for a looong time.N-WAY I wonder if He's gonna have time to shred all the files that He possibly has hidden once He is out. I would like to see Him loose everything. even the possible averseas bank accounts. THERE U HAVE IT BIATCH.

@david_saint01 @JoeArpaioFan  

You are correct, they are vetting via that portal as they collect signatures and they are getting more sigs than technically needed so that when our wonderful Sec. of State (sarcasm) finds a way to invalidate some of them, there will still be enough.

Flyer9753

@IdontRecall  

What's funny, that Robert is apparently too stupid to know, is that the majority of the sigs have already been verified, since they have been using the Counties own verification systems as they go to do that.
