Joe Arpaio Creates His Own Version of What Happened in 2003 Altercation Between Paul Penzone and His Ex-Wife

Paul Penzone, yet again explaining the 2003 altercation with his wife.
Former Phoenix Police Department Sergeant Paul Penzone once again explained the 2003 altercation with his ex-wife, after Sheriff Joe Arpaio's campaign released an ad on the matter, which says there's no excuse for "hitting a woman."

The incident the Arpaio ad is attempting to reference was explained by our colleague Stephen Lemons months ago, so the facts are already in on this one.

"For years, Paul Penzone was the face of Silent Witness," the female narrator says in Arpaio's ad. "In 2003, Paul Penzone pushed his then-wife against a door, injuring her in front of their child. He's trying to explain it away, but there's no excuse for hitting a woman. Now, the only silent witness is his ex-wife. We deserve better than that."

Penzone wasn't accused by anyone of "hitting a woman," -- except by Mike Stauffer shill DeeDee Blase, who referred to Penzone as an "alleged wife beater" -- but there are also a few things off about the ad, which we haven't been able to find online yet.

The ad declares, as fact, that Penzone pushed his wife into a door in the 2003 incident. That was actually an accusation made by Penzone's wife, after Penzone himself called police and claimed that his wife had just smacked him in the face with a hockey stick.

No charges were filed for the incident since there were just the two sides to the story, and no one was arrested.

There's no indication this happened in front of their son, either, as the police report notes that the kid was in the car, while Penzone's then-wife claimed Penzone pushed her after she went back inside his house.

Today, Penzone reiterated his claim that his wife hit him with a hockey stick. If you don't believe him, he implored the public to read the police report and make their own judgment. (You can read it for yourself here.)

"I will answer to anyone and everyone, and run from nothing," Penzone said.

Penzone knows Arpaio has the money -- and the tendency -- to runs ads such as this one, which he likened to "attempting to buy his office back."

"He is more committed to do things to keep his office than he is to do his job," Penzone added.

Meanwhile, this ad came out right after another poll came out showing Penzone within a few points of Arpaio. Arpaio's been careful to avoid acknowledging the existence of Penzone, so it might not be a stretch to think that Arpaio's getting a little scared.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio told the truth and nothing but the truth. Paul Penzone did abuse his wife and he admitted to doing it, so why the attack against him?

Sheriff Arpaio is Arizona's Jerry Sandusky.

 

Arpaio allowed Child Rapes to continue even years after being reported to "His" Office!

 

For allowing Children to be knowingly Raped Arpaio is no better than the child Molesters he ignored!

 

A vote for Arpaio is to condone Child Rape.

 

Arpaio should be facing charges for neglecting these Raped Children, not running for any "Law Enforcement" position.

It is interesting that the liberals think it is okay for Penzone to attack Arpaio but not okay when Sheriff Joe attacks back at Penzone with the truth.  Does everybody really think that it has been forgotten that Penzone did admit to abusing his wife?  We have not forgotten.  Why attack Arpaio for something he said that is true?  For Penzone to deny the allegations is an outright lie.  If it is not true that he abused his wife then why did he previously admit to it?

Joe only got 55% of the vote in his last election. The feds have a little business for Joe if he doesn't get re-elected.

I would like to see SHURF JOES medical report.I believe he is suffering from "ALZHEIMERS " or some form of "DEMENTIA". That is my opinion.

Somebody should tell Sheriff Bozo Joe's campaign there's no excuse for killing inmates in custody.

Arpio is a disgusting, deceitful and morally corrupt aged politician whose time has come AND gone.  For years he's been festering and the mess he's been oozing all over Maricopa County has cost us all dearly.  From his inhumane, illegal and idiotic policies and practices to his insistence on using the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office as his PERSONAL POCKETBOOK,  we have all paid a price...some  more than others.  All except one person.   Arpaio.

He's the only one he  has spared from  all his bullshit. 

I'm going to lance that boil come November and vote for Paul Penzone.

Huh. I'm a retired cop from Oregon. Worked homicide. Shot and killed and armed robber. So don't call me liberal. Arpaio needs to be replaced. Penzone is the guy. I don't care about Mexicans. I care about cave creek being safe. As we all should. If you have more experience than me post. I'm a cop I care about law enforcement not immigration

 @SupportArpaio you see its not a attack by Penzone, rather its a statement. a statement that can be supported by over 400 case files. but on Arpaio's commercial, it is an attack with information that cannot be supported by by either of the 2 people that are involved, and that is what we call a lie. if you just make up info and use it to harm another that is slander and a smear tactic (the same thing Joe's people did against Dan Saban).

 @SupportArpaio Let's get right to the REAL issue here JaF:  YOU are abusive and a threat to others.  Plain and simple.

It's out there, with all your vomit - and you've already been banned from this site under another screen name.  It is people  like you who continue to foster hate and fear.  Arpaio must really be proud to have such a bigot, such an idiot and such an in your face blind supporter as you.  As for the rest of us....no thanks.

 @SupportArpaio JAF: your insane rants about Penzone attacking his wife are without merit.  You claim to be standing up for women, but wasn't it you who has been threatening people on this website ...men and women alike?  You have no  idea who you are verbally threatening, yet you are calling out Penzone for abusing women?  You are an abuser. Your rants and your language to others is both abusive and unacceptable.  You are exactly why bans in public forums were created.

 @SupportArpaioJAF, you're spinning your mush again, trying to make logic out of illogic. Go back outside and play. Someone will call you in when it's time for your nap.

 @royalphoenix His numbers have jumped in case you haven't been paying attention.  But you have it confused.  Once he wins he will have a little business for people like you.

 @FRONTERA Actually you were hoping that dementia would have played a role but oh no, we don't forget. Penzone just screwed himself by falsely attacking Arpaio for telling the truth.  Of course Penzone is denying it but fact is fact because he admitted to abusing his wife back then.  Why he lies about it is beyond me.  He thinks we have all forgotten I guess.  http://therealpenzone.com

 @NoMoreArpaio And there is no more excuses for drug cartels and illegal aliens in Maricopa County and beyond.

 @proud_womanist You mean you won't vote for Scott Bundgaard, the former No. 2 in the AZ Senate who beat his ex-girlfriend in front of 5 witnesses and 2 cops on AZ51 and claimed legislative immunity from arrest while she went to jail?

 @proud_womanist Probably shouldn't  vote for a guy who allows unsentenced, pre trial detainees to be killed in his jail, either.

 @OnlyInArizona You are disgusting, deceitful and morally corrupt if you don't like Arpaio.  The only reason anybody would not like him is because he enforces the laws they want to break.  If you were truly a law abiding citizen you would welcome Sheriff Arpaio with open arms.  I hate to disappoint you but he will be re-elected whether you like it or not.

 @Dubber You are not retired, you were fired. If Penzone gets elected you won't be safe. You are a liberal.  Go back to Oregon, there is no room for you here.

 @DubberYou will find the best response to JoeArpaioFan aka JAF, is NO response at all. He is just Mr. Rubber Lips with a keyboard. Incessantly flapping, like flatulence in a hurricane.

Tommy, i am having problems with my account. Cant like or comment on new articles. Only on older ones unless i use my phone. Any ideas?

   @OnlyInArizona you're saying I am morally corrupt  because I don't support a corrupt ego maniac who failed to supervise his "troops" (think Hendershott and others), can't remember details of massive misdeeds at the Sheriff's Office and never takes responsibility for the chaos he has created?  He was the elected official - it was his responsibility to serve and protect.  What he ended up doing was to SELF SERVE and PROTECT his few insiders.  The rest of Maricopa County residents paid the price.

 @Tommy_Collins  I am back, this is JoeArpaioFan. Looks like Lemons banned me because he doesn't like the fact I tell the truth and he doesn't.  he must be out of town looking for a new job since he will be fired from the New Times when the new owners take over. I doubt though he will be hired anywhere else given his track record.

 

You really should look at http://therealpenzone.com. I will be adding a section on the fucked up Phoenix New Times there soon to expose their lies and deceit. I may even respond to your baseless comments and expose you too.

I had similar all night last night. I had to entirely close the Tab in the browser that NT was on, then close the browser, clear temp files then restart the browser.

 

The app they are using for the comments sections is client side and it caches the login info separate from the actual page login info. Firefox has a problem with it at times when you have opened and closed multiple NT tabs over time.

 

I think it has to do with Firefox's implementation of javascript. Firefox has never gotten along well with Java in general

 @danzigsdaddytry another browser or update your current browser. I've had the same problem, most of the time with Firefox. Just a guess.

 @SupportArpaio  Pray tell, what laws does the MCSO shurf enforce?

 

The only thing the Old Fool does is pander to the TV cameras all the while allowing dangerous criminals to roam the streets.

 

You must have escaped from the mental institution without taking your meds this morning.

 

BTW, I've been hearing unconfirmed rumors that the DOJ may be reopening their criminal investigation into the MCSO shurf....

 @OnlyInArizona HA! You don't support Arpaio because you are a law breaker.  If I were a criminal I would be against enforcement of laws too.

 @SupportArpaio  @OnlyInArizona You don't speak the truth. You speak total nonsense, sounding like a one sided, narrow minded, morally corrupt individual.  Anyone who  "follows" and "supports" a guy who has done so much damage to Arizona needs THEIR head examined.  There is just no excuse for blind sheep following these days.  The truth on Arpaio is out there for all to see...just take your blinders off.
