Joe Arpaio: Don't Bother Me About Botched Sex-Crime Investigations -- Can't You See I'm Holding a Puppy!
|Guys, guys, guys -- calm down about the sex crimes...can't you see I've got a puppy here?|
Resnik tracked down Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at the Christmas party for the MCSO's MASH Unit to ask him how more than 400 sex-crime investigations were botched on his watch.

The sheriff responded by working himself into a huff -- grumbling that the problem was solved in 2007 -- and then holding a puppy up to the camera.
If this pup happens to be in need of a name, "Smoke" or "Mirrors" each have a nice ring to them.
