Joe Arpaio Supporters Going for (Highly Improbable) Recall of Mary Rose Wilcox

Mary Rose Wilcox
We're not sure whether this is a serious thing, but right-wingers are touting their response to the attempted recall of Sheriff Joe Arpaio: an effort to recall County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox.

Forgive us for being skeptical, but if you think it's a longshot that Arpaio will be recalled, consider the fact that Wilcox just got re-elected by nearly a 40-point margin.

-Why Sheriff Joe Actually Is Nervous About the Recall Effort Against Him

This is the word from right-wing mouthpiece SonoranAlliance.com, though.

"Mary Rose Wilcox, one of the most, if not the most corrupt politician in Arizona, has until the last election run unopposed for every election for any office to which she has been elected," the "Citizens Against Wilcox" website says. "Ron [Harders], with limited funds, resources and no organization to speak off garnered over 43,000 votes against this well financed, political mafia backed supporter of illegal aliens and champion of anti-American La Raza studies in the public schools. A supporter of Randy Parraz and company who were responsible for the recall of Russell Pearce and are now pushing to deelect Sheriff Joe on obviously frivolous and fabricated grounds."

Yes, it appears that the man who suffered the huge loss to Wilcox in November is running this effort. No paperwork appears to be filed with the county for a Wilcox recall effort, though.

Harders is one of the Tea Party types who's just a few years younger than Arpaio, and the guy kind of sounds like a grade-A racist.

On the Wilcox recall website, Harders refers to Wilcox's constituents as "illegal aliens," which probably isn't helpful if you're trying to take those constituents from Wilcox.

"Much of what Mary Rose pretends to do for her constituents (illegal aliens) is tyrannical in nature," a very nonsensical blog post on the website says. "Like a mafia Don overseeing his turf, she picks winners and losers based on their usefulness to her purse."

Harders' comments there go well with his comments to the Arizona Republic before he got demolished in the election:

If elected supervisor, Harders wants to support Arpaio and his anti-illegal-immigration efforts and "getting the courts to be more effective as far as illegal-immigration lawsuits, etc., by exerting pressure on them, trying to work with the federal government in the way that ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) people would want to arrest and deport illegals, especially those who are involved in criminal activity.

"Mary Rose Wilcox has been representing Mexico and Mexican interests longer than she's been representing anybody in her district."

Harders would probably have better luck trying to recall Santa from his post at the North Pole, but whatever -- they already made the flyer:

This bitch is just as crooked as joe but since she speaks a little spanish,boom, she's as holy as our lady of guadalupe. Tell me why, she claims to be for la raza, did she back a black incumbent instead of a hispanic female candidate for city council? She plays the game and knows how to use people when it comes to swaying that hispanic vote. Sheeple.

We should all sign this - recalls are GREAT political theater and theater is theater - and this would be FREE!!!  Hell, I pay $40.00 for a ticket to see one of the shows at the Herberger - a Mary Rose Wilcox recall matched up with an Arpaio one would be magical!.  Mary Rose could help campaign against Joke Arpaio by spending the money she gets from Clean Elections pointing out that the recall against her is being led by Arpaio's followers and they should be punished by electing other than Arpaio.

She would be in no danger of a recall anyway - even if they got the signatures - because her constituents will vote her back in!

Will the JOKER'S WND/Birther/Deadbeat dad (lawyer???) that is trying to stop the Joke's recall going to do the same for the Wilcox recall, or does he have zero ethics?

Personally, I don't care much for Wilcox. Never liked the "Bullet in the Big Buttocks" politico. She's not much different from the Flaccid Failure we are recalling. So let them sick Maria Rosa.


So who cares.

LMAO!!! now we have two groups of idiots shuffling around and yelling for recall. At least one group is making money off their effort, the other group is stupid as hell plus they are broke. Only in Arizona!!

I wish the media wouldn't perpetuate the "right-wing" stereotype.

People are much more nuanced than that.  I know many people that the reporter would probably label as "right-wing" who see right through Joe and would love to send him back to where he came from (New Jersey, as I recall).

Not highy improbable, highly probable.  But what's highly improbable is recalling Sheriff Joe.

Lmao Wilcox must be thinking of this as a joke.

Wilcox is the only Dem, the only Hispanic and the only woman on the Board. I firmly believe she's the target of this bullshit 'recall' because of those 3 reasons.

@Avery Marx lol shes no saint, thats for sure...but unlike Arpaio, they have no grounds to recall her on. But i doubt they would get half the signatures needed to anyways.

@valleynative

You are right, the vast majority of the Right Wing are being vilified because of the craziness of a few and it is wrong.

The problem comes, both with people and in the media, that it's almost impossible to separate them since those crazies claim to be the 'mainstream' Right Wing - they consider you (assuming you are a republican) to be the extreme or not extreme enough - aka, not republicans and crow to anyone who will listen that THEY are the true Right Wing, the TRUE Republicans. 

Does this really matter? No, they can say whatever they want, just like anyone can.

The problem I see is that while many Republicans try their best to make a distinction between the 'crazies' and the more mainstream Republicans, the more mainstream Republicans in many many ways actually like the energy and voice that the extremists bring, even if they do not agree with the specific message.

They (mainstream Republicans) like the attention since in the end, it brings attention overall to the Republicans, attention they may not get otherwise or at least would not get to the same degree.

It's like the old uncle at the Thanksgiving table, everyone likes the points he makes until he gets drunk, then they keep him around for the points and just ignore the rest as best they can - he is serving their purpose

Now, because of allowing this to a large extent and not being as vocal or more so towards the extremists in your own party, no one believes the Republican in general when they say the extremists are not speaking for them - it's the boy who cries wolf in politics scenario.

I agree that the main core of the Republican Party are not the extremists, but Republicans as a whole need to start doing a MUCH better job of policing their own party, getting rid of the extremists and either forcing them to start their own separate party or splitting off yourselves to get away from the extremists.

Until they start taking control and responsibility for their own party, things are not going to get any better for the Republicans in general.

@valleynative  republicans, (which i am), and tea party people (which i am not) all get a bad rap from the birthers and people like Robert (JoeArpaioFan), and Arpaio himself. by allowing people like them a voice.......we are killing ourselves. I cant blame the media for making us out to be whacko's after i see stuff like what JAF posts or people like Larry Klayman in the press

@danzigsdaddy  How do "we" give these people a voice?  That's all on the media.  I never gave anybody permission to speak for me.  For the record, I do not and never will, belong to any political party.  I most often vote Republican only because the candidates usually come closer to my views on a greater number of the issues than the Democrat alternative.  Arpaio is a good example of an exception.

@JoeArpaioFan lol its in the Constitution, and if you idiots really need a reason look no further than their own internal report on the botched sex crime cases..he stated last year they were still investigating them, and then the report shows that to be an outright lie. That is more than justification for the recall. Its pretty simple, if you dont do the job you are FIRED! lol just like with any other job.

oh I know and I did not mean to indicate that all of them are insane or crazy. I like a lot of what the republicans stand for. Not to the point I would ever call myself a republican since I lean more towards liberty and self governance than even the old/real republican party did/does.

It does however seem to be as you say though, and I can say at least with my family members, they are a little nutz, especially the 'not birther' birther one...

Makes me embarrased to admit my family is my family since they are all Republicans and very closed minded about anything non-republican, although they of course claim to be otherwise - plus at least 1 of them is a birther, or as they put it "I'm not a birther but I still have questions about his legitimacy".... uh huh....

danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@Flyer9753  there are somethings about the democrats I can agree with, and some of it is okay, but the new breed of republicans that we seem to have are just plain out of their minds. I keep an open mind about a lot of stuff and can find good or bad in both sides (i can even find positive about Arpaio, but that is not what i am being asked by these people). the newer breed of republicans (mostly the birthers) are just plain psychotic. my sister and my father are tea partiers and can get extreme, but thank god they are not birthers. they may have narrowed vision, but you can sort of reason with them (it takes a while and a lot of patience) but when you introduce factions like Robert or Klayman, it is a disgrace. they all cry about how patriotic they are yet are promoting agendas of hate and selective enforcement of the law. it makes me embarassed to admit my party affiliation after everyone see's idiots like them chiming in

That is a good documentary, although it in many respects was too short to show all the evidence against those 4 - a documentary showing all the evidence would take 4 hours or more.

Yes I remember the starters of the KKK and such, but I applaud the Dems at least for kicking those aholes to the curb - as you point out though, they went right over to the Republicans and became the Tea Party

@Flyer9753 @danzigsdaddy It was Hubris - great documentary on the leadup to the Iraq Way BTW on MSNBC - that got the Republicants in trouble.  The old guard was there to prevent all the radical dems who switched parties in the civil rights era from gaining a voice.  Remember those aholes?  Yeah, the ones shouting racial epitapths at the black children trying to get a good education!  Well those people, and their children, are now in office and they're NUTS!!!

@ExpertShot @Flyer9753  

Very true, but a 'party' system of some type was required at the time for several reasons, partly the aspect that no one knew how to do a social system without them and the communications aspect you bring up with the internet - good catch btw, most people do not realize the differences and changes that ease of communication bring to helping advance society and politics.

@Flyer9753@ExpertShotFlyboy: Our "system of government" has nothing to do with a 2 party system, except in the part of the US Constitution which speaks about the creator giving us the right to assemble and to associate freely with each other in the First Amendment.  There is no requirement for political parties to be present at all.  With the advent of the internet, I'm guessing that political parties will shortly go the way of the Elephonies and become extinct. 

You're right about the mixing of religion and politics within the Republicant party - it's dangerous!!!!  Imagine, having to register your intent to engage in conduct which MIGHT conclude in a preganancy with the government!  That is the end result of their abortion banning activites.

@ExpertShot @Flyer9753  

For the most part, personally, I agree. The current day Republicans, primarily since HWB, are an atrocity in my opinion and while I support their right to their opinion I do not agree with it and will do anything I can to make sure they do not come to power again. Also to make sure that the batch currently in the house lose more seats even with their gerrymandering/cheating.

However I will also state that I feel both Bushes are not what the Republicans originally stood for. Those are the Republicans I miss.

I still don't agree with the majority of their stances, particularly on religion and it's involvement in society/politics, but I do miss them since I do believe in our system of government (2+ party system).

 David, keep in mind that if President William Howard Taft had his way, we would never have been able to boot twice-disgraced, corrupt, narcissistic and mentally sick Pearce from office. Taft refused to grant Arizona statehood because of the recall provision. It was replaced in 1913. Sounds like the voters back then were smart.
