Spoiler alert: Fat chance, for Arpaio's friends.

Yesterday, a group popped up called "Citizens To Protect Fair Election Results, LLC," claiming it would take legal action against the Arpaio recall effort.
The photo at the top of this post includes all but one of the key people behind this effort.
Thanks to the Arizona Corporation Commission filing for "Citizens To Protect Fair Election Results, LLC," -- which was posted by the Arizona's Politics blog -- we can see that the men on the right, Jeff Lichter (far right) and James Wise are registered as the organization's members.
Wise and Lichter are also "leaders" of the Surprise Tea Party, which successfully asked Sheriff Joe Arpaio to start the "investigation" into President Obama's birth certificate, a completely fraudulent operation carried out by the man on the far left, conspiracy-theorist Jerome Corsi.
Now, the person not pictured is the person these "birthers" have tasked with the legal work -- Larry Klayman, an attorney for Freedom Watch, who happens to be a friend of Corsi's, and a "birther" who once introduced a "birther" affidavit from Arpaio as evidence in an actual courtroom.
Now that we've made it absolutely clear that none of these people has a single shred of credibility, we'll tell you what they want.
They sent a cease-and-desist letter over to Respect Arizona, the group running the Arpaio recall effort, telling them they ought to shut it down.
Why? Because Klayman claims the recall effort is "illegal," "unconstitutional," and a "criminal recall enterprise." Believe it or not, Klayman failed to actually point out where Respect Arizona's doing anything illegal.
