Joe Arpaio's Andy Thomas-Like Stooge Bill Montgomery Moves to Silence Mary Rose Wilcox on Melendres

Also at his Wednesday morning press event, Montgomery seemed to signal that an appeal was in the offing, making a statement at the beginning of his press conference that sounded like classic CYA spin.

"Appealing that case on legal grounds...is not an equivalent of accepting or approving the basic concepts of racial profiling and discriminatory policing," Montgomery asserted. "There's no relationship between the two, and it's simply legally inaccurate to try to associate the two."

Why say something like that if you do not intend to appeal?

Monty denied that he had made any decision on what to tell the BOS regarding Melendres, and stated that the BOS may have to take up the issue of "additional resources" for the suit.

"There's a hybrid there," he said. "Because the county's not a party to the suit. That obviously...impacts one area of the board's statutory duties that is under review.

"The fact that it could require additional resources, addresses a different area of the board's authority. So regardless of what a final opinion might be, there may still be a role for the board to take a look at that. But I haven't finalized the advice to give them."

After the Wilcox press conference, I asked the supervisor why she thought Montgomery would move to gag her, when she was so outnumbered on the BOS.

She said she believed it was because she knew a lot about Melendres, and so might be able to influence the three new board members.

And what would happen if she refused to leave the next session where Melendres was to be discussed?

"There was a threat in that letter," she told me. "It was, `If you don't conflict [yourself out], I have the grounds to arrest you.' He knows that, but I think he didn't think I'd protest it."

Shutting up Supervisor Wilcox is something Arpaio and his allies in county government have been trying to do for years, mainly because, when it comes to their machinations, she's often right.

"Montgomery thinks he can come up with an idea so that they can appeal and not look racist," she stated, spot on.

And he doesn't want Supervisor Wilcox standing in his way.

Why is Debra Milke, an INNOCENT woman STILL sitting in prison on death row when the 9th Circuit overturned her conviction and sentence on March 14, 2013?

Wilcox instead of the innocent woman, languishing on death row? 

Job one should be handling the innocent person, Debra Milke. The folks can see how the "system" handles the innocent -- poorly. If you think it can't happen to you, think again.

Time to end the sick political games and release Debra Milke NOW! 

Why is Debra Milke, an INNOCENT woman STILL sitting in prison on death row when the 9th Circuit overturned her conviction and sentence on March 14, 2013?  

Is the MCAO using the same SOP they used on Ray Krone and kept him languishing in prison once his conviction was overturned? Krone was exonerated 11 years ago. What no wrongful convictions since? Like the MCAO is perfect and pristine? We don't think so. They have a proven track record that confirms it. 

What? The Maricopa County Attorney's office makes no mistakes? Hasn't had years of established abuse of power, prosecutorial misconduct, and malicious prosecution? 

The prosecutors, as ministers of justice, have the responsibility to "right the wrongs". They demand zero tolerance policies of the people. If the people do not act responsibly, or lie, or commit perjury, or exercise bad behavior, they end up in Arpaio's jails and Arizona's mass industrial prison complex -- their big business model for $$$ -- grabbing from the Federal government and taxpayers.

In a civil society, what man should be allowed to play God with these women's lives? 

The power of grandstanding at the podium playing God over these women, appears to be orgasmic for him. Why would he ever want THAT to end? 

The Arias case promises Montgomery and the media endless coverage for political and financial gain in a sick society caught up in the theatrics of the justice-system-gone-wild. Game plan: Judge moving on to the Arizona Supreme Court next? 

Sentence Arias to life in prison without parole. That is the worst punishment. We all know it would also save hundreds of millions of taxpayers dollars to end the failed death penalty boondoggle.

Meanwhile, Wilcox is MCAO Montgomery's newest shiny object to re-direct the public attention and keep it on the minority woman, an elected official. Using Andrew Thomas political enemies like a "retread"....

Come here boi....come here......go,go....attack....attack wilcox....i'll get UR "bacons".....attack wilcox. Predictable move from the RACIST 1, have 2 send his "attack dog" Monty and try to"bite" Mrs. Wicox, get Her out of the way while this matter is ongoing. Meanwhile his master is not carrying his duties and collecting taxpayer's money while sitting on his stinky pampered bonny ass, playing the DRAMA QUEEN saying: "I'm beign descriminated because my age".UNFUCKING BELIEVEABLE.

Montgomery would be concerned about a "Racist", Racial Profiling Sheriff if said Sheriff was not his Master.

MCSO Montgomery is moving to "silence" Wilcox, while he needs to move to "un-silence" those turning Arizona into a "prison state" with a new Super-Max private corporation prison with 500 beds?  Is this how they chose to use the $50,000,000 they received from AG Horne from the mortgage foreclosure settlement?  Why isn't he asking questions about that which negatively impacts the people and filing complaints? (see below)

"The missive cites Arizona conflict of interest law, claiming Wilcox has a pecuniary interest in the outcome of Melendres because the settlement of her lawsuit against Arpaio and the county, already approved by the district court, has been appealed by Montgomery to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, at substantial cost to taxpayers, who will have to foot the bill for interest on the nearly $1 million agreement when the high court inevitably upholds the settlement."

Instead of going after Wilcox, why isn't MCAO Montgomery's going after the "conflict of interest" many taxpayers see with the private prison corporation contracts with CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) as Chuck Coughlin / Senseman and his/their ties to HIgh Ground lobbyist for CCA, who drive state public policy from the Governor's office (and is her friend) among others?  This week without the public allowed to speak or ask questions, Appropriations Capital Review Committee, Senator Shooter, John Kavangh and others passed $50,000,000 for a new Super-Max prison, 500 beds, by private prison corporation  CCA? 

How does a huge project like this proceed with no "needs assessment", no procedural rules, no outside independent impact studies on the taxpayers, the community, the people, the environment and the long term consequences without public dialog?  Where's the legal complaint on that boondoggle?

Personally I agree with MRW that appealing Judge Snow's decision is a waste of taxpayer money.

MontyPug needs to take ethics classes. Seems he forgot why Candy Andy and the Miscreants were disbarred and had their law licenses suspended.

id say Monty has more of a conflict since arpaio spent 500k helping him get elected. Furthermore, he hasnt shown any instance where he is willing to do his job and go against arpaio.

She will be silenced alright.  By hook or crook she'll be booted clean out of Maricopa County.  And once she is gone there will never be another Hispanic Democrat on the Board of Supervisors. Just look at how much she has cost the taxpayers with her frivolous lawsuit?  I can hear her now saying WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

Who paid her legal fees when she sued and won $975,000 in federal court?

robert_graham
robert_graham topcommenter

I see. I read a bit further and I read "..Wilcox, the only Democrat, the only woman, and the only Hispanic on the five-member board, is already on the record as being opposed to any funding of an appeal in Melendres by the BOS.".

Funny, who paid Wilcox's legal fees in her legal battles before?  This article also says that "Wilcox, the only Democrat, the only woman, and the only Hispanic on the five-member board, is already on the record as being opposed to any funding of an appeal in Melendres by the BOS."  There's your answer why she is opposed, because she is a Democrat and a Hispanic. She is a racist.

It's time that Mary Rose Wilcox is recalled and booted out of Maricopa County.  I'll be pusing for a petition to have her recalled shortly.  She is a disgrace to not only Maricopa County but all mankind. Screw the bitch!

so they are saying this case is too similar to Wilcox's, they said the DOJ case was too similar to Wilcox's................um??? dumbass, you are admitting there is a pattern here.........think about it. maybe they can call in Mary Rose as an expert witness since she seems to have so much in common with all these cases about Arpaio?

I think its time to get the official BOS video footage of Montgomery at the open meeting of the BOS last january where he carried on babbling about the DOJ lawsuit and also attacked MRW. 

We will see who has a conflict.  Yes, Monty, your previous statements can and will be used against you. Don't believe me? Ask Joe.

So in another words, Montgomery is going to continue sucking Arpaio's dick and threaten anyone that gets in his way from getting Arpaio more of the tax payers money to waste fighting a losing battle.

The corruption in Maricopa County just never ends with these assclowns.

Arizona cannot manage the prisons they have and are responsible for and have found a way to wash their hands of their responsibility for those they arrest and incarcerate. Arizona does NOT need new prisons. They need to FIX what they have. Arizona does NOT need to 'import" inmates which creates greater liability for the taxpayers. All this done with our taxpayer dollars to make a handful of profiteers obscenely rich, which many call "carpetbaggers"...

Funny, for a liberal Democrat she sure is being conservative with limited taxpayer money. Perhaps you should think (that's already asking too much of you) about what you say BEFORE you open your mouth and spew your crap.
