Yavapai County Sheriff Scott Mascher's July 30 letter to Governor Jan Brewer about medical marjiuana contains the same discredited gossip as a July 24 letter to Brewer by Yavapai County Attorne Sheila Polk.

A letter about medical marijuana to Governor Jan Brewer by Yavapai County Sheriff Scott Mascher, and signed by other sheriffs, contains the same BS about a federal official's intentions that we debunked last week.

For the record, we don't know what President Obama's newly appointed pick for Arizona U.S. Attorney, former Pima County Judge John Leonardo, will do about the medical-marijuana dispensaries expected to open soon around the state.

But we do know that when Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk told Brewer on July 24 in a letter signed by 12 other county attorneys that she'd heard Leonardo "fully intends" to shut down the stores, it was apparently based on false info. Polk told us that she heard it from a retired DEA agent, who then told New Times that Leonardo "never said what he was going to do one way or another."

The Arizona U.S. Attorney's Office backs the idea that Polk's just a rumormonger, saying her representation of Leonardo' s intentions was "inaccurate."


Sheriff Mascher's July 30 letter to Brewer uses the exact same sentence as Polk's did: "I have been told that the newly appointed U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona, John Leonardo, fully intends to prevent any dispensaries from operating in Arizona by seizing each and every one as it opens and commits violations of the CSA."

Did Mascher get his info about Leonardo's intentions from a different, perhaps more credible source, then coincidentally decide to express that info as Polk did, word-for-word? Nah. It's just more BS.

We called Mascher this morning for comment, but his staff says he's not in the office yet. We'll let you know his response when he calls back.

When we told Polk that her story and retired DEA agent Tony Coulson's story didn't match up, the prosecutor e-mailed us that, "I wrote in my letter to the Governor what Tony told me."

Besides passing along twisted gossip to the governor, these crack law enforcement officials have an important message about how federal law should trump the wishes of state voters.

But they're all fouled up on that one, too.

Just a suggestion, but how about just ignoring JoeArpaioFan?  He's clearly someone whose not going to be swayed by rational argument. He clearly enjoys the role of provocateur.  If we all simply chose not to engage him, forget that he's there, we deny him the reward he craves and obsesses about. And karma's a bitch. People like JoeArpaioFan, angry, powerless, obsessive compulsive types (just count his daily posts... 40- 50- 60) tend to lead pretty shitty lives. What he does here is a reflection of how he leads his life. I say just never engage him again.

So another group of politicians  who hate it when the voters have it their way and decide what is right for themselves.

 

I'm sure they are weeping at the prospect of diminished budgets and let's not forget the diminished number of property forfeiture scams they can pull off.

 

It's pretty sad how the politicians in Arizona wax poetic about how bad  the FEDS are, but keep sniffing their shorts as long as the incarceration gravy train keeps paying for their bloated budgets.

How about if we talk about all the lies Harry Reid and the liberal politicians have been spreading about Mitt Romney and  the lies that are being spread about Arpaio too.  Let's talk about those things.

I don't know, maybe he thinks he's on top of the world. I'm sure he feels very proud  as he sits looking in the mirror at those nice pink panties that his bunk buddy Joe gave him. That and he, she, or it is probably a paid propagandist.

 @JoeArpaioFan So where is your list of lies being told, and where are your links debunking these so-called lies?

 

I always see a lot of blubbering from you, but very rarely do I see any facts to back up your comments.

 @JoeArpaioFan You mean the lies portraying Arpaio as an honest and competent Sheriff?

Those aren't lies, they're delusions of the weak minded.

 @djack1 better yet, he should save his rants for after the Joke is arrested and thrown in Federal "Pound me in the ass" prison...

 

Maybe he could go there for a visit...

 @rickthepr1ck  @JoeArpaioFan No you better wake up and smell the coffee you dumb prick.  Let's see your picture or are you too embarrassed to show your ugly face?  Do you think that Joe is racist because he arrests Hispanics who break the law?  And why do you think that wetbacks deserve a free pass to break the law?  You need your head examined.

 @FuckArpaio Joe Arpaio could care less whether or not you or anybody else likes him or not.  Your insults only makes him more determined to enforce Arizona and federal law.  I have heard that his office will be conducting several more workforce enforcement raids in Phoenix and this it is expected that more than one hundred illegal aliens who use stolen identities will be arrested and taken out of the workplace to make room for jobs for American citizens. I applaud those raids and hope they would be conducted more often.

 @NotAnArpaioFan Well, as an example, Harry Reid and his cronies have accused Mitt Romney of not paying his taxes in ten years.  And Harry Reid and his cronies have the nerve to demand Mitt Romney turn over his tax returns but they don't want to reveal theirs?  What kind of crap is that?  It is called dirty politics.  But actually sir, it is the Democrats that seem to be the crybabies, not the Republicans.  I am not blubbering, I know what I am talking about.  It is you who is the idiot.

 @Eleanor I most certainly do live in Arizona. Just got back last night.  I bet you don't live here though?  Because Eleanor  is not a Hispanic name, you must have stolen somebody's identity.

 @JoeArpaioFan If you are a fan of Arpaio's, that's YOUR problem. Anyone with half a brain knows that ANYONE can do Arpaio's job...better! Arpaio is ineffective and if you are a taxpayer, you should be even MORE outraged! Arpaio has cost you (and everyone else) MILLIONS of dollars while remaining completely ineffective. A vote for Joe is a vote for ignorance. Nothing more

 @JoeArpaioFan The reasons we don't post our pictures on these messages are the same reasons why you shouldn't - how do I put this politely - your photogenic qualities are dispositive that just because some humans have evolved beyond a multi-cellular life form, you don't have to be one in order to have developed an anus!

 @JoeArpaioFan nope. There are stupid democrat trolls too, I am sure, but you are the local stupid troll on this board. All we have to do is state a fact and you are trolled. What does that make you? an illogical retard.

 @ptcgaz Everybody is a stupid troll if they are not a Democrat, right?  Well buddy I have news for you and that is that Romney will be our next President.  Did you see the news clips about Obama proudly declaring that he donated to himself after getting Michelle's approval? Obama even publicly said that he is not getting as many donations as his challenger is getting.  What does this tell you?  It means he is getting desperate because he knows he does not stand a chance against Romney.

 @JoeArpaioFan sure it is. Obama shows his, even Dubya showed his taxes... why is Romney hiding his?

ptcgaz

 @JoeArpaioFan because you retard, Harry Reid et al have already shown theirs. 

fairymagic13

 @JoeArpaioFan Because Reid is not running for President Dumbass.  No.  He used tax dodges and shelters to hide his money from the Fed.  Of course there's no evidence - he's keeping his tax returns secret, THAT IS THE EVIDENCE!  The Democrats don't have to discredit Romney, he's done plenty of that on his own - just ask him about his "magic underwear"

 

http://front.moveon.org/heres-a-handy-list-to-keep-track-of-the-current-romney-scandals/

 

Don't forget - Romney smoked pot as a kid and is an oxycotin (heroin) addict!

 @ptcgaz And if the President was really born in Hawaii he would have been open about that in the beginning but he hides like a bitch. And if Holder and the President really knew nothing about Fast and Furious they would have disclosed the requested documents in the beginning.  Now let's talk about who hides like a bitch.

robert_graham
robert_graham

 @ptcgaz It's not up to him to prove anything. And why don't his challengers disclose their taxes?

robert_graham
robert_graham

 @fairymagic13 Oh really? Well then what about Reid and Wasserman-Schultz, how come they are demanding to see Romney's taxes but yet they don't want to disclose their own? If Romney had not paid taxes in ten years don't you think he would have been an issue earlier? There is no evidence of any wrongdoing by Romney, It is up to Reid and the others to prove Mitt never paid taxes and they cannot.  Just another deceptive measure by the Democrats to discredit Romney.

ptcgaz
ptcgaz

 @JoeArpaioFan well if he has "paid' his taxes he would be open about that. Instead he hides like a bitch...

 @JoeArpaioFan  @NotAnArpaioFan You are attempting to corrupt the minds of your reader with false information: Mitt Romney has not released his tax returns for a reason - we don't know that reason - we need to know!  He bases his whole campaign on tax reform.  What tax reform - the type which will benefit him financially?  I'd like to know if he has a conflict of interest in that regard. 

Also, Harry Reed did NOT accuse Mittens of not paying his taxes.  He reported what an Investor in Bain Capital told him about what he knew to be the truth - that Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes for ten years.  I'd like to know how he did that - did he use tax shelters like most millionaires to do avoid paying any taxes?  What deductions did he take to get that kind of tax treatment.  Most of all, was it legal? 

I would appreciate it if you would take your false information and shut up your ass so far it comes up your throat and you choke on it!

Lying bastards like you is what is ruining our country.
