Latino GOP Group Doesn't Just Want Sheriff Arpaio to Leave Office, They Want Him to Leave the Republican Party

Sheriff Joe Arpaio
The hits keep coming for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

First, the media continues to hound him about hundreds of botched sex-crime investigations. Then Randy Parraz, the man who organized the takedown of ousted former Senate President Russell Pearce, demands his resignation. And now he's being asked to leave the Republican Party.

Oh...and did we mention the Department of Justice is announcing the findings of its investigation into America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" later today (check back later for that story)?

Café Con Leche Republicans, a national GOP organization, put out a release this week demanding Arpaio get out of the party.

"The wheels are falling off the wagon at the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO), as shown by the lack of investigation of at least 400 serious sex crime cases, many involving child rape," officials with the group say. "Sheriff Arpaio has disgraced his office and the Republican Party ... For both the good of people of Arizona and the GOP, we call on Arpaio to immediately step down and leave the GOP, and clear the field for a worthy candidate to fill the job of Sheriff."

The chances of Arpaio resigning are about as likely as Arizona's Republican congressional representatives publicly calling for his ouster. In other words, we're not holding out breath.

In the meantime, Café Con Leche also demanded Arpaio publicly apologize to the victims of the botched sex-crime cases, to the people of Maricopa County, and to thousands of racially profiled Hispanics "for his abject failure to protect them."

Joe doesn't owe anyone an apology, especially not those grubby, mongrel illegal aliens.

Well, whatever the Latino GOP boys say then that's what should happen.    Endorsed and backed by New Times who never saw an hispanic story they didn't like.

Cafe Con Leche splintered off from and still has some indirect links to Somos Republicans. It's not exactly news that those guys don't like Arpaio.

What is this going to cost us? I will give up an old sheriff to resolve my liability.

it's going to cost several things. A. Sheriff Jokes head on a platter (or in this case in a jail cell).B. an investigation into the DPS.C. an investigation into Pinal County's sheriff.D. firing of most of the staff of MCSO.E, the culture of racism against Hispanics must end.

Rick Perry licked Arpaio's butt for an endorsement. Tastes better all the time, eh Rick?

Yeah.

So much so that he offered his opinion on the MCSO shurf and the DOJ report on page B5 of today's Republic.

We are waiting for the voice of PAUL BABEU on this!  Yes, that white outspoken rising star politician adored by the highest leaders of the Arizona Republican Party.  And a leading sheriff in America!

The same person who can't decide if he wants to be sheriff again or if he wants to go to Congress and play checkers in Washington with Gosar and Quayle. (Note: he continues to accept campaign donations for either path)

PAUL BABEU has repeated told his voters that he is not racially biased against Hispanics.  Why won't he speak out on these claims against Arpaio?  He has heralded that half of his employees are Hispanic. Why hasn't he spoken out on these discrimination claims against his friend and fellow sheriff? 

Mr. Babeu, tell us how you really feel about justice and Hispanics and sex crime victims and your friend, Joe Arpaio.  And as you do, be honest and open your closet doors.

The record now shows the Babeu mark of wisdom and impartiality for the Arpaio way of doing business with his sub-contracted 29,000 pages of material on the Hendershott, Black and Fox capers.

This one should be easy for Babeu.  Babeu is nationwide with his comments and opinions. The nation (at least certain talking heads) turns blindly to him as a guiding light of truth and justice in America.  How about justice in Arizona?  How about alleged injustices by his friend and collegue, Joe.

Babeu is a former president of the Arizona Sheriffs Association (two year term), so why no comment on the sheriff in the next county?  Major claims are being made here.  As a struggling politician seeking to cater to the Republican and White dominated congressional district he is mucking around in, what about the Latino Republicans in his county and in our state?  He has heartily talked with them before. Has he forgotten them?

Hey, Sheriff Paul.  Can we have a statement on this resignation demand by a prominent (though they be Latino) Republican group? After all, you seem well-practiced in continually asking for Mr. Holder's resignation.

Next to "hero" and "patriot," Babeu's favorite words for others are "responsibility" and "accountability."  Can he apply the later two to his friend?

This federal investigation went on for three and a half years; about the same time frame as Babeu and Arpaio have been closed involved with eachother, personally and professionally.

Babeu should be able to comment one way of the other. Support his friend and mentor and ENDORSE Arpaio's problems here with the feds. Or step back, be honest and CRITICIZE him.

Not a word from the person that has an opinion on everything.

If the Bald Bunion says anything bad about his mentor, the MCSO shurf, while the BB is campaigning for Congress or for another term as shurf of Pinal County, the Old Fool will crush the Bald Bunion like the fly that he is.

btw does anyone else think PB (or BB) has a weird shaped head or is it just me? (and NO I dont mean cause he shaves his head)

I think the Bald Bunion might be a real-life Conehead... (think 1980's Dan Aykroyd movie here...)

All Illegal aliens should be allowed by Obwama to apply for work permits but only while they are outside the United States in their home countries.   This type of program (guest workers) has worked very well for many years in economically successful places such as Switzerland, Singapore to name a few. Once their work visa expires they must immediately leave the country. If the females become prgnant, they are immediately returned to their home country. commit any violation of ANY law (even "J" walking)  and they are deported. If they attempt to re-enter the US illegaly, they are automatically placed on a list of permanently banned from entry into the US. Are you with us?Just enforce the Immigration Laws and treat all people who want to enter the US fairly. Don't show preference to those that entered illegally. Justice for all?

a little harsh don't you think?

I mean after all, the GOP wants them to come in and do the slave labor so they can make profits...

Joe should remain in the GOP. The GOP is right where he belongs. He reflects their values. The members of the GOP are his homies. They are down with his values. He is their poster boy.

I remember a while back when I first moved to AZ someone tried to tell me that Sheriff Joke was a Democrat. I was like no way, he's the poster child for the GOP.

DOJ's findings on Joe Arpaio and MSCO: A Culture of Abuse, Retaliation and Constitutional Rights Violations that starts at the Top and is embedded within MCSO. About frigging time !

Jason

Where was the DOJ during all this?

I'm surprised they haven't gone after Napolitano yet. She helped cover up some serious MCSO shurf corruption when she was Arizona U.S. Attorney.

also they need to investigate DPS as I think they are doing the Sheriff's dirty work now.

I saw that Coz and couldn't agree more. They even agreed to take over the Flaccid Failure's botched 430 sex crimes because the MCSO shurf allegedly discriminated against poor people and illegal immigrants' children.

Today, was a good day :-)

Yes indeed Coz.

Sunshine is starting to peek through the cloudy skies in Arizona...

Now if the federal GJ would get off its ass and indict the Old Fool, that would be a REALLY good day...

Jason

The ONLY way the MCSO shurf is leaving office is through indictment and perp-walk.

The DOJ best move on the Old Fool if there is to be a series finale of the Joe Show...
