Joe Arpaio Recall: 14 Days Left, a New Dennis Gilman Video

Citizens for a Better Arizona president Randy Parraz makes two very important points in this new video from Dennis Gilman.

The first has to do with what is possible.

-Joe Arpaio Recall Re-Ignites Paid Petition Effort with 22 Days to Go

"I assure you right now," he tells recall supporters during a recent meeting at the Wright House in Mesa. "And we've talked about this before, there are 335,317 people that currently are registered to vote, that live in Maricopa County, that don't support Sheriff Arpaio.

"That is a fact. Our challenge is, are we going to be able to get to them...to make this happen?"

Of course, 335,317 is the number of valid pro-recall signatures that must be turned into Maricopa County Elections by May 30 for the recall committee Respect Arizona to meet its goal.

As Parraz indicates, it remains doable. In the 2012 general election, Arpaio's Democratic rival Paul Penzone scored nearly 600,000 votes to Arpaio's almost 680,000. Interestingly, independent Mike Stauffer polled about 62,000.

Percentages aside, Penzone's was a gap that could have been made up.

But past is prologue. The recall has 14 days remaining. And though Respect Arizona has recently scored enough in contributions to revivify the paid petition campaign, only a combined campaign of energized volunteers and the paid effort will get Respect Arizona over the hump.

Lilia Alvarez, Respect Arizona's campaign manager, is not revealing the number of signatures that she has in-house at this moment. Back on April 22, Respect Arizona announced it had 200,359 valid signatures.

This could be a historic moment, one that will "change the trajectory" of politics in Arizona, as Parraz says. Yet, I fear complacency is our greatest enemy.

There are shenanigans being perpetrated by the Arpaio camp. Chad Willems has his "shadow army" of rednecks and alter kockers regularly harassing the Respect Arizona folks as they try to score sigs in public spaces. Also, Willems has a pseudo-petition circulating, an anti-recall petition that has zero legitimacy, but, I believe, is intended to confuse people.

Otherwise, Arpaio is infrequently seen, which may be a result of his health, or could be a wise strategy on Willems' part to keep his candidate's head down, and hopefully avoid any mistakes that would give advantage to Respect Arizona.

What's left then is for all those who oppose Arpaio -- Democrat, Republican or neither -- to act, to make sure those 335,317 valid sigs are secured by May 30.

Otherwise, we'll just be forced to sit back and watch a doddering Arpaio expire ever so slowly of old age, while retaining his clammy grip on power.

Now that you all are in desperate mode you will try to get signatures any way you can - even illegally. I wonder how many signatures have been submitted from people who never signed the petition being that Respect Arizona has obtained a list of the Maricopa County voter rolls. I'm just waiting to see if my name appears on their roster of signatures so I can sue big time.  Signatures will be spot checked to be sure this hasn't happened.

It would be better for Citizens for a Better Arizona to be called Citizens for a Worse Arizona.. Actually as I speak it's 13 days now and they aren't even close to getting all the signatures they need. And they won't. They better keep in mind that every signature they get will be verified for validity.  It's only common-sense to say that if they don't care about ID theft why would they care about voter fraud?

Mr. Gilman, Great video!  Gathered more signatures today while running my daily errands. Mailed them in. Also donated money to hire people to gather signatures as well. Carry the clipboard wherever i go. This effort and money is an investment in a better Arizona. People are energized and pleased to see someone with a petition they can sign.

I'm driving around in Maricopa county now with my windows advertising the recall and that I have the petitions with me for anyone to sign. I must have been stopped 15 times today by people wanting to sign.

Amazing what can be done with some white shoe polish and a clipboard while doing my normal daily driving. 

I highly recommend everyone else do the same. Also carry your video camera with you for the inevitable traffic stop by MCSO deputies trying to intimidate you.

They yanked the paid petitioners today, today so it's going to be interesting.

Penzone got 600,000 votes. If you haven't signed the recall yet-what the hell are you all waiting for?

@JAFFYQUACK,  Probably that's what U have done, knowngly sign one of those recall petitions illegaly. but U R so stupid that U R kind of admitting that U did sign one, why else should U be checking the rosters, now I know that if UR sig appears there....welll ....U did sign not one but many of them, since "U R wondering how many sigs have been submitted from people who never signed the petition" , and as I said before, probably U signed all those petitions or UR crew of fags and then play this kind of shit, saying that "people never signed". therefore trying to blame people behind the recall effort. I know that U won't understand this post, since U R an IDIOT..

@JAFFYQUACK. U R a fucking SCANDALOUS BITCH, U are the one bitching about ID theft, voter fraud and illegal activity; could it be that U R so used to U R POS HERO doing that kind of shit probably, that U think that everybody else does it. U R a fucking ILLEGAL PARANOID BITCH.

I wonder what would U do fagboi, if all of a sudden the last day to submit the sigs for the recall Ms. Lidya says that they got the required sigs. What would U do BIATCH? I hope U shove a dildo down UR throat untill U die. COCKSUCKER.

@truthseekeraz You're so full of shit your head is black. How many of those signatures you say you have gathered are legitimate?  You're a fraud just as much as the campaign is.  And how many lies have you been telling people to gain their sympathy?  And why would you need to get paid signature gatherers if you have so called volunteers or is it that you just want people to think you have volunteers?  I'll be monitoring the signature gatherers to ensure that everything is on the up and up and you'll never know when I am one of the undercovers who you ask to sign your worthless piece of paper. You can best believe I and we will be watching.

@Flyer9753 But just remember that if you happen to get in an accident don't expect MCSO to show up quickly to help you.

@Flyer9753 The sad part of this is that there must be many, many deputies that would sign that petition if their names could be protected.  The Shurf does not take kindly to his children going against him.


I wish that I were a Maricopa County resident.  I would sign that petition in a heartbeat, and offer to take a few extra along with me to the store.  I hate Arpaio and what he has done to the image of law enforcement in Arizona!

@MoManny Yes very interesting. They are broke and ha ha ha ha ha. they have no volunteers otherwise they would never have had to pay people to get signatures. You are doomed.

Mr. Gilman, I am currently out of state but I was wondering if you had a link to the recall arpaio website or an address for them...

@Dennis Gilman Of those 600,000 votes, many were deemed invalid. Besides, 600,000 didn't cut it.

@JoeArpaioFan 

Yes you will be watching. You'll be watching your hero fall from your prison cell in federal prison for voter intimidation (I hear the DOJ doesn't like voter intimidation)

@JoeArpaioFan @Flyer9753  

BTW - you do realize that if what you say is true, MCSO not responding in a reasonable amount of time to an emergency situation is a dereliction of their job duties per the la.

Retaliation against anyone for exercising their First Amendment rights is illegal, especially when done by a Law Enforcement Officer or Agency.

@truthseekeraz @Flyer9753 You better be sure to watch your vehicle closely because there are more people around in support of Arpaio than against him which means you could get your car vandalized if you are not watchful of it.

Be ready for the intimidation stop - while I have not been stopped yet, only been doing this for the last 5 days, I did get followed by an MCSO cruiser a few times... I am just waiting for the stop to happen, since I carry my camera and have 3 in the car recording 24x7

I love my dashcams :)

@JoeArpaioFan @Flyer9753 @truthseekeraz  

IF being the operative word and IF I break a traffic law, they are welcome to ticket me, but they better be damn sure since my car has cameras on it as well as multiple GPS units tracking everything done in it - I have vehicle tracking that is accurate to 1.5 feet and is admissible in court - evidence that WOULD be used in court against them if they stop me without cause. 

Although, their following me or stopping me if I don't break the law is grounds for a harassment suit so it's MCSO that better watch itself.

You are sure it does eh? Another assumption by you that is not true, but what else is new.

Why don't you tell all your butt buddies at MCSO who I am and what car I drive so they are aware of these facts for their own benefit, since per you, you have my name and car information including license plate number... 

Oh wait, that's right.. you can't since you don't have it otherwise you would have posted that information here like you have threatened to do and I have asked you to do multiple times...

@Flyer9753 @truthseekeraz If you commit a traffic violation you can and should be stopped. They have cameras in their cruisers too so if you get stopped don't try to lie your way out of it.  Does being followed make you nervous? I am sure it does and when you get nervous you are more likely to break the law.
