Joe Arpaio's Republican National Convention Role Doesn't Exist, So He'll Be at a Nearby Zoo

Appropriate Florida attire.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio will be in Tampa next week during the Republican National Convention.

He's not actually part of the convention, though -- he'll be giving a speech to an audience of people and exotic animals at a zoo about seven miles from the Tampa Bay Times Forum, where the actual GOP heavyweights will be speaking.

Yep, according to an announcement from the Arizona Republican Party, Arpaio will be addressing the zoo animals, zookeepers, shit-shovelers, and RNC delegates from the west at an "invitation-only" event at the Lowry Park Zoo on August 30.

"Sheriff Joe is a good friend and a great Republican, a former member of the Electoral College representing Arizona, and he's wildly popular not just in Maricopa County but throughout the state and the country," Arizona GOP chairman Tom Morrissey says in the announcement. "He's done a lot for the Republican Party already, and we're overjoyed that as always he is willing to join us as we visit some of our 'fellow elephants' while in Tampa."

Arpaio's so popular, in fact, that some real big-name people were given speaking slots over him at the actual convention. Some examples: Zoraida Fonalledas, National Committeewoman of the Puerto Rico Republican Party; Puerto Rico first lady Lucé Vela; actress Janine Turner; Delaware Lieutenant Governor candidate Sher Valenzuela; country singer Beau Davidson; and former "Massachusetts Secretary of Workforce" Jane Edmonds.

And Arpaio will be at a zoo.

This will be Arpaio's second trip to Florida in the last year.

Wikipedia: Subsequent investigations revealed many questionable transactions between Safari Wild (owned by then Lowry Park Zoo director) and Lowry Park Zoo, including the transfer of over 200 zoo animals to Safari Wild, zoo funds being used to build structures on Safari Wild property, and payments from the zoo to "board" animals at Safari Wild.[15][16] The city of Tampa, which provides a portion of the zoo's annual budget, demanded an audit detailing the relationship between Lowry Park, Salisbury (Lowry Park Zoo director), and his outside business ventures.[15]   Coincidence?  You decide.  Is Arpaio going there to teach or to learn?

There is also no such thing as the Democratic National Convention.  That building on Central Avenue in Phoenix labeled as AZ Dems will be closed soon and will be getting new tenants and they won't be Democrats.

Who's paying for it?  Taxpayers?  Posse? RNC?  Joe personally?   What about a security detail - is he taking a detail with him?  Who pays for that - us?

 @JoeArpaioFan - Your post show just how ignorant you are.  I'd be embarrassed if I were you.  I, however, put the right shoes on the correct foot, proving I'm not you. 

 

YOU'RE EMBARRASSING YOURSELF!  STOP IT!

 I understand all the old senile people always go to the zoo just before they start pushing daizies.

 The story is about the Republican National Convention and one of it's non-speakers, a geriatric fool from Arizona. Why do you feel the need to bring up the Phoenix location for the state Democratic party? There's no validity to your post, honestly.

 @JoeArpaioFan why is going to be closed? did you finally get a paper route. and between your paper route money and your allowance you plan on renting it and opening a joe arpaio museum? oh goody goody, we can call it "THE SHRINE OF INCOMPETENCE" or the "RAPISTS REFUGE" or my favorite "THE OVERLOOK" in honor of all the crimes he should have been dealing with, yet overlooked

 @mutunus69 I'm actually LMAO at "ArpaioFan" on this one. And to be frank, the zoo is where the 80 year old joKKKer belongs. What better selection than the zoo.

i can see it now "okay we have the media coming, we have to do this right. Joe, your job is going to be the MOST important one. we need you to stay on the other side of town for this. can you just go to a movie or the zoo or something for a few hours?  it would really help if you could just.....well.. you know, disappear or something."

 @JoeArpaioFanSince the comment was deleted I will infer that you are in disagreement with my post. I didn't see your reply before it went away. But, I'm almost sure it was inane.

 @danzigsdaddy tommy is sure that any reply from you whether seen or unseen would be inane. you should remember this and be sure to agree with him.

 @Tommy_Collins  @JoeArpaioFan actually it was me. it was in agreement with you, but the way i had it worded, i thought it could be taken offensively, so i pulled it
