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

Arpaio, back when both arms still worked . . .

With 22 days remaining, the effort to boot Sheriff Joe Arpaio from office has re-started the paid petition-gathering campaign it discontinued back on March 18.

Lilia Alvarez, the campaign manager for the recall-Joe group Respect Arizona, confirmed this evening that a "joint paid and volunteer" campaign is now in effect, in part due to additional funds having been received by the group.

Join the fight to end Arpaio's tyranny once and for all.

"We're very grateful for the donors that have stepped forward," she told me. "People know, with 22 days left, it's now or never."

She said the decision to end the paid campaign in March was a tough one, but some of contributions pledged to the group had not materialized.

Donate to the Arpaio Recall group Respect Arizona.

"To hold those pledging money and our own volunteers accountable, we had to scale down the paid effort and hammer away at our fundraising," she said.

That decision has paid off, apparently. According to one source, a text message went out to petition circulators this afternoon from Sign Here Petitions, informing them that the paid effort is "back on," and that they will be receiving a per-signature increase over what they were being paid before March 18.

Send Joe a pink postcard telling him where to go, while contributing cash to the recall campaign.

Alvarez said she was not ready to reveal the current number of verified signatures Recall Arizona has in house, but promised that, "We will be disclosing it soon."

On April 22, Recall Arizona held a press conference to announce that it had 200,359 verified signatures from qualified county electors.

The group must score 335,317 such signatures by May 30. If they achieve that goal, Arpaio must either resign from office or face a recall election.

Citizens for a Better Arizona, the group that forced the 2011 recall of ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce and is now supporting the recall of Arpaio, sent out a fundraising email today encouraging followers to donate, setting a fundraising goal of $400,000.

"The campaign to recall Arpaio just received two $50,000 pledges within the last two days," CBA president Randy Parraz writes. "Now we only need 300 individuals to give $1,000 to reach our goal."

Alvarez did not offer any financial details of Recall Arizona's recent cash infusion when I spoke with her, but she said fundraising events are ongoing, as is the volunteer petition drive, which will have folks at 15 different locations around the Valley this weekend.

Asked about the electronic billboards up around town encouraging people not to sign the recall petition -- billboards funded by Americans for Sheriff Joe Against the Recall, a group fronted by Connecticut-based wackjob John Philip Sousa IV -- Alvarez claimed that they've actually helped the recall campaign.

"We've had people stop by our office and tell us that the billboards reminded them that they have to sign the recall," she said, adding, "People have such short attention spans."

This news is just the kick in the pants recall-Arpaio supporters needed. It's now on all of us to do everything in our power to remove this buffoon from public life once and for all. If we fail, we have only ourselves to blame.

Illegals are a plague on our society. Support Joe in his courageous efforts to do what the Feds won't.

Joe is the man.  He will not be cut out.  He will stay in charge.  If you want him out you have serious problems with reality.

Quoting the author of this screed:  "My point is, not everyone's opinion is equal or even valid."  Mr Lemon speaks as a true hater and progressive who's intolerance bleeds over the pages of this excuse for a media outlet.  Even an elementary student in psychology 101 can spot projection when its this obvious.

Come on Jaffy, what are you doing... Talking to your lawyers?  I really need the MCSO to threaten me online, on this board, so I can sue the county, settle, and move out.  That would make you happy, wouldn't it?

I talked to this person , she very quickly told me she was JAFFY;s MOM. I asked her how her son JAFFY was doing in regards to him bedwetting and leaving skid marks on his chonies. She said he;s still shitting in his panties(yes he still wears the pretty pink ones with ruffles and lace) ,. Shame on you JAFFY don't you know any better ? Oh by the way your mom wants to know if you need a change of clothes for work at BK?

Come on Jaffy boy...  Are you scared?  Then join the club at MCSO... They have been scared of employers for years, big time drug dealers for years,  white collar criminals for years... I am sick and tired of a sheriff, and a command staff, that is afraid of going after real criminals, and goes after low leve crime in an effort to make himself look good.  That needs to stop.

I will tell you why I signed the recall petition.

In his twelve years in office, Joseph A. Arpaio has not had the balls to go after the employers of illegal aliens -- no criminal prosecutions of employers, ever, in Maricopa County Arizona.  That is a colossal failure, on my part.  If I were sheriff, and if we had a reasonable county attorney, we would have had thousands of convictions.


In his twelve years in office, Joseph A. Arpaio has demonstrated that he can't run the sherif's department.  Too many jail deaths.  Sheriff's deputies are rude and arrogant.  Again, a real sheriff would fix that.


In his twelve years in office, Joseph A. Arpaio has cost us too much money in insurance payouts for his lack of ability to run a department with some discipline.  We have spent 50 million in payouts, for people who have died under dubious circumstances in his jails.  He has never bothered to investigate, or to discipline his staff.

In his twelve years in office, Josepth A. Arpaio has spent most of his time trying to get media attention, instead of focusing on the problems within the department, and doing something about them.


And, i haven't even gotten to hendershott.


Pretty much, Arpaio is an incompetent clown.  It's time for a change, because I am paying for his incompetence, through higher taxes, and I don't like the higher taxes.

Been gone for a day, and it seems we now have a positive ID on Jaffy using public records.  Any Jaffy sightings at the petition signing?  With the sounds of what he's trying to post, has anyone considered calling the PD where he lives and having them look into his claim of stalking other people for his site?  Get hard copies of the stuff on his website.  He might get a chance to have a meet and greet with Joke in an MCSO cellblock!

You know what else even an 'elementary student in psychology 101" can spot?

A troll who comes to a place they call an 'excuse for a media outlet' just so they can bitch. The same troll who I am sure is a butt kissing diaper changer for another troll called Joe Arpaio and the organization of Law Enforcement rejects called MCSO.

@HILLFOLKREDNECK Statistics prove that where there are more immigrants (both legal and illegal) there is actually less crime. There is no correlation between the two at all. I believe the second link is from the Cato Institute which could be called a "right wing" organization, so to dispel any notion that this is something the "liberals" cooked up. Enjoy choking on that crow.

Dude, are you familiar with the Immigration Reform and Control Act, which gave 3 million illegal immigrants legal status under then President Ronald Reagan? One of the most iconic Republican presidents of the 20th Century?

@WhoKnows Excuse me? There is nothing illegal about what I have posted but go ahead and call MCSO as they will simply laugh in your face and basically tell you to go screw yourself.

Trust me, if the tables were turned you would be the first person to say what I say and do what I do and if I objected you would probably tell me to go screw off so don't try to tell me. There is nothing about what I am doing "stalking', only to you because you don't like the exposure.

WOW!! Nice page you put up there on your wacky little web site.

You can't address things here, in a forum where people can reply to you, so you put the comment on your web site where you don't let people respond!!! ROFLMFAO!!!!!!

What's the matter Robert? Can't take the heat of hearing/reading replies to your wackiness?

The true sign and definition of a WIMPY LITTLE BULLY is someone who can't take it when someone pushes back

You meet that perfectly!

Actually, it is the employer who has to comply with IRCA.

A "dumb liberal" declared the 14th Amendment adopted in 1868. The same amendment that gives your sorry ass due process and birthright citizenship.

@JoeArpaioFan @bill 

And, while we are at it, what about Munell's memo, that led to Hendershott's firing.  If Joe was competent (or if anyone else on the command staff was), that wouldn't have happened.  Hendershott would have been made to toe the line early on.  That just proves how incompetent Joe really is, doesn't it?

bill

@JoeArpaioFan @bill No, I am a staunch conservative, who believes that the only way to stop illegal immigration is to penalize the employers that hire the illegals.  

On that score, Joe has failed.  Probably because those employers of illegals are funding his campaigns, or are providing him with other goods/services/cash .    I want a decent sheriff, who will put a stop to employers who hire illegals.  Joe hasn't done that.


Why is Joe scared (chickenshit) to go after employers?  Give me a reason.

And, do you, Jaffy, work for MCSO?  If you do, I am going to go over to your place and give you a real lesson....

@robert_grahamcracker@JoeArpaioFan

But of COURSE none of that information is HIS information... except of course the stuff that's in the domain registrations... how could you even think that the rest of the information about the same person, at the same address, in the now changed WHOIS records could be him, how could you think that????????????

The domain registrations BTW that we all have copies of prior to him changing them which were BTW last updated on April 14, 2013 @ 13:42 UTC .. only a few days after you first posted all the additional information... of course it's not him, how could you ever think that????

Domain information that according to him in posts on this blog, was never changed and have always been registered to 2700 W. Baseline Road, Suite 133 PMB 178, Tempe Arizona 85283... but we all have the original pre April 14th, 2013 copies that show the 3511 E Baseline Rd Unit 1241 address... How could anyone ever think that was him?????

I mean, isn't it obvious it's ANOTHER Robert Graham like this Robert Graham claims, who just happens (by his own admission on his web site) to live in the same area THIS Robert Graham works in and has his PO Box in... How is it possible anyone could think that's JAFfy....

:)

I will say this to Robert, in all seriousness, if it's not you, you have just admitted you have performed Identity Theft and given more than enough evidence of it via your own posts.

" For your information, the only things that changed on the domains is the nameservers and web hosting company, not the contact information, etc. It has not ever been registered to 3511 E. Baseline.  But why though does the addresses make any difference to you anyway?"

For YOUR information that is a lie, outright lie - I and others have the screen captures of the domain information that shows the changes and they were not just to the nameservers/host information.

Yeah I saw that, but the question is are you going to leave the posts up that people put there? Unlike your last forum where you deleted posts you didn't like?

Don't bother answering, we all know you will do it, no matter what you say to the contrary, that's what proven lying wimps like you do.
