Matt Salmon, Joe Arpaio-Approved Congressional Candidate, Won't Explain About-Face on Feelings Towards Sheriff

Matt Salmon and Joe Arpaio are new-found besties. We'd like an explanation.
As we noted this morning, Congressional candidate Matt Salmon's got nothin' but love for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio these days -- ya know, now that he's running for Congress and the sheriff sent a political endorsement his way, and all.

But Salmon's new-found appreciation for the 79-year-old sheriff doesn't quite jibe with some comments the former Congressman made about Arpaio a few short years ago -- after the sheriff endorsed his opponent in the 2002 gubernatorial race.

Salmon, however, won't explain his about-face when it comes to his feelings towards America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff."

You see, in a 2005 New Times article, written by former NT scribe John Dougherty, when asked about Arpaio, Salmon said the following: "I don't respect him. I don't think he's playing with a full deck."

However, yesterday, in a press release announcing that his candidacy for the District 6 Congressional seat was now Joe Arpaio-approved, Salmon said the following:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been a tireless advocate for the safety of Maricopa County citizens for almost two decades. He understands how important it is to protect our national borders against illegal immigration and he knows I will make that a top priority in Washington. I am grateful for his confidence in my ability to represent the best interests of our communities.

That's a pretty glowing critique of a guy for whom Salmon has no respect.

As far as we know, the only thing that's changed since Salmon said Arpaio's not "playing with a full deck" is the fact that Salmon's now running for Congress, and an endorsement from the sheriff in Maricopa County costs $2,000 is priceless.

Maybe the sheriff -- at 79-years-old -- has found his deck's missing cards. We wouldn't know, though, because Salmon's campaign has ignored repeated requests for comment. 
 
We've sent Salmon's campaign spokesman Adam Deguire two emails in the past 16 hours asking for an explanation about Salmon's about-face. He responded to neither.

Apparently, Deguire doesn't want to talk to us, but maybe he'll explain former Congressman Salmon's new-found love for Arpaio to you -- the voters -- if you email him at Adam@SalmonforCongress.com.

If he gets back to you, let us know -- we're dying to hear his explanation for Salmon's switcheroo.

ANYONE that receives a political endorsement from the Senile Septuagenarian is as mentally unstable as they come. Joe's endorsements are as worthless as a 3 dollar bill.

I wonder why this fool is now kissing Joe's sweaty ass when he hated the Flaccid Fool before?

Napolitano was endorsed by arpaio the year salmon and nappy ran for governor.

Jason

Yeah, and only because Nappy, as AZ US Attorney, covered the Senile Spinster's corrupt fat ass in the wake of the wrongful death of Scott Norberg by getting a DOJ investigation into the MCSO shurf stopped.

What does that say about napolitano? ...and it was more than just the Norberg case. it had everything to do with the complaint reference missing money from the sales of pink underwear.

Jason

You mean besides the fact that she's more than complicit in the MCSO shurf BS? Everything.

I'm glad I didn't vote for that fool or any other of our elected politicians. They are LIARS!!
