Joe Arpaio Makes Moolah off Melendres, Promises to "Never Back Down"

A scorpion without a tail, never to be trusted...

Remember the fable about the frog who does a scorpion a solid by giving him ride on his back across a river? In it, the scorpion promises not to sting the frog, observing that they would both drown if he did.

So when the scorpion stings the frog midway across the river, the frog wonders why, as they both begin to sink.

"Because it's my nature," says the scorpion.

Maricopa County's scorpion with a badge, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, is opposed to an independent monitor, and many of the other proposed conditions in Melendres v. Arpaio, the big civil rights lawsuit he lost in May, when federal Judge G. Murray Snow found the sheriff's office guilty of racial profiling.

Arpaio's attorney Tim Casey has assured the media that the sheriff "must comply" with whatever requirements are deemed necessary by Snow in Melendres, insisting that recent negotiations with the ACLU over proposed outcomes were done "in good faith," despite the plethora of objections made by Casey in a report submitted to Snow last week.

But while Casey was negotiating, um, "in good faith," Arpaio apparently was exploiting Melendres to put cash in his campaign kitty for 2016, sounding a note of defiance in the process.

In a purported fundraising letter for Arpaio's re-election committee dated August 6, Arpaio speaks out of both sides of his mouth on Melendres, vowing to continue his crusade against illegal immigration, and only reluctantly saying he will go along with Judge Snow.

First he regurgitates some major nativist shibboleths, like how illegal immigrants are able to get all this free stuff from the government. Which is baloney, because illegal immigrants are not eligible for welfare and other government benefits.

Read Joe Arpaio's fundraising letter, making money off Melendres.

After Arpaio sets up this straw man, he knocks it down. He tells readers, if they agree that this non-existent gravy train for illegals is an outrage, then, "I need you to stand up and show your support right now."

You know, by sending cash to Joe, who will single-handedly pursue the undocumented.

"I will never back down -- not even one inch -- when it comes to doing the job I was elected to do," the letter states. "I will continue enforcing all the state criminal laws on the books no matter what the consequences."

He is the best sheriff we ever had.  One tough sob.  Those who are against him are mostly convicted felons or rats.  Sooner or later he will get your ass too.

Dennis, between Arpaio, MontyPug and Babeu there's enough controversy to put all 3 out to pasture alongside twice-disgraced, corrupt, narcissistic and mentally sick Pearce and Candy Andy and the Miscreants...

The least he could do is give up 1/2 of his welfare check....
