Munnell Memo Investigation Report by Pinal Sheriff Paul Babeu is Overdue

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu is still working on the investigation into allegations raised in the "Munnell Memo."

While chatting with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu today about border issues, we asked about his months-long investigation into allegations by Maricopa County deputy chief Frank Munnell.


As Valley Fever reported on February 3, the report had been completed and was expected to be released no later than today.


The situation has changed, Babeu confirms, and nothing will be released today.

David Hendershott remains on administrative leave from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office as an investigation into his alleged misdeeds continues.
​Babeu says the investigators decided to interview one more person, and that he's still "working with lawyers" on the upcoming release. The delay means he can't say exactly when that report will come out. But he whetted our appetite by saying the results of the investigation would be "significant."

Pinal County sent a bill to Maricopa for $46,000 for the investigation, which was conducted by a private firm, not Babeu's detectives.

Meanwhile, the Arizona Republic reported today that David Hendershott, the subject of the investigation and the Munnell Memo, is being investigated by the IRS. The tax agency "confirmed that agents were looking into Hendershott's business ties with vendors who contract with the county. They are trying to answer numerous questions about his financial activities," the paper says. In case you missed it, the Repub also reported this week that Hendershott and Lisa Aubuchon, former County Attorney Andrew Thomas' lackey, filed a $36.5 million claim against the state. That's on top the millions they're already seeking from the county.

It's not just the former law officers who are seeking to soak county taxpayers: Retired Maricopa County Superior Court Judges Anna Baca and Barabara Mundell filed lawsuits in their pursuit of $9.5 million from the county, and county IT guru Stephen Wetzel filed a federal complaint agagainst Sheriff Joe Arpaio seeking punitive damages and other remedies.

That is a failure of course for him, although he make an effort on pursuing those report, it is really too late because he already fail the deadline.

Babeu will punt, I think. Think it'll either be plain vanilla, or a whitewash. He's being groomed for MCSO, but his handlers want him to arrive the "right" way, not by smearing either of the village idiots.

Actually the correct thing for Babeu to do would be to follow accepted criminal law. Something new for PCSO and MCSO, unless of course you happen to be brown in a public place and have an accent when you speak.

Significant is good. Blow the WFT sky-high would be better. But significant works for me now, and we'll hopefully get Blow the WFT sky-high from the Feds soon.

"Significant", as defined by Babeu is not likely as defined by you or me. You may recall that as of the time of this very note being typed it appears Babeu is still standing behind "The Louie Legend of Vekol Vally Shootout at The Cactus Corral".

Will we see Babeu actually burn off The Flaccid Fool and his gang of miscreants for his own political gain? Does pearce see that the FF no longer has significant political value and he is planning to bring Babeu to Maricopa County?

Has D. Hendershott realized his obesity is likely kill him before he can run to Honduras and retire, yet again?

Has L. Black started his P.I. business yet?

Has J. Fox filed a letter of intent against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors yet?

What really, Mr. Babeu, is significant, at least in YOUR mind?

Before the investigation is released , baboon wants to do 3 things first.1.Show Hendershott what they found...2. give him enough time to buy a one way ticket to Honduras..3. Tranfer all the money he stole to a Honduras bank..If anybody thinks that the joker didn't know what was going on. is an idiot

Speaking of shady financial dealings, how about the fact that Arpaio "rented" offices space for his 2008 election campaign from himself? Isn't that converting campaign contributions to personal income?

I'm glad that there is a $77,000 fine recommended for his illegal "re-elect shurf Joke in 2012" smear campaign against Romley. That was so dirty even Swiffer can't clean it.

What do you bet that Joke Ourpiehole has a "pre-release" of the report and he's trying to get it changed.

After all, Hendershott serves to pleasure Joe.

Or something like that, according to the Shurf's own words.

Hmmm. Contractors with the MCSOO? Might that be the concessions contractor JOE ARPAIO AND HIS WIFE!!!!!

What ya wanna bet it's about unpaid taxes on income they skimmed from the sale of candy and pink underwear. I got $500.00 that says the IRS is gonna slam Hendy AND Arpaio for back taxes, fines, and fees.

I don't care how they get him, they got Al Capone on tax evasion too!

Hendy, Aubuchon, and Candy Andy's claims will be laughed out of a courtroom any day of the week.

$46,000 is cheap to see the Fat Bastard, his level 3 sex offender pal Fox, and Black do the perp-walk.....

I'd gladly pay a reasonable amount of damages to the actually aggrieved parties, as long as the MCSO shurf, Hendy, Thomas, Aubuchon et al admit fault.

XS, just curious what information you have that Mr. Fox is a level 3 sex offender? Not being glib, I just hadn't heart this one before and wonder how it might be validated...

Agreed. I think that those who were persecuted by Arpaio, Thomas and Company are entitled to reasonable compensation for their troubles, including the cost of recovering legal expenses and tangible stress-related "pain and suffering" damages.

"Reasonable" is the operative word here, so I would expect that intelligent descretion would be used in determining what is "reasonable".
