Can the Joe Arpaio Recall Effort Gather 215,000 Signatures in 85 Days?

Sheriff Joe Arpaio
The group calling itself Respect Arizona announced yesterday that it's collected and verified 120,000 signatures calling for the recall of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

With a little less than three months left in the four-month window to collect signatures, Respect Arizona has 215,317 signatures left to collect, although the organizers would like a little breathing room on top of that.

Arpaio's campaign manager Chad Willems, in a recording obtained by our colleague Stephen Lemons, explained to the Joe fanatics, "If our opposition -- [Randy] Parraz and his group -- get the money that they need for these signatures, they're going to have a candidate on that ballot, and Joe Arpaio goes away."

If Willems actually believes this, then there might be a bit of trouble in Arpaio's future.

So, given the first signature total announced by recall organizors, do you think they'll get enough?

We're out there working on it everywhere we go. The petition can be printed (legal size, double-sided) off the recallarpaio.com website.

Has Jaffy signed off as his shift is over, or did he get another call from a lawyer?

I've observed people offering to sign multiple petitions. I'm sure all sigs will be looked at carefully.

Anyone have a guess when Joke's meds allow him to drink again?  I'm missing his media stunt Press Conferences!  They are SOOOOOO funny!

Has anyone told the folks at Respect AZ about Robert Jaffy Graham's latest plan to intimidate voters?

Jaffy,

 You ever actually looked at a petition? Signed one or had someone sign one? If somebody fraudulently signs a petition (ie: they're not supposed to) then that person is actually held liable for it. The reason is, it says on the petition (and on the back too for the person gathering them) that by "signing this, I under penalty of perjury...." meaning that if somebody signs a petition that they aren't allowed to because they're not a registered voter, ineligible because of age or some other reason, they're the ones who would get blamed. Granted such instances are pretty rare, but it could happen. You're basically signing a legal document. Though I am curious Jaffy, why don't you come down and meet me. I will give you $100 cash if you come down to my place of business and declare who you are with proof. No joke.

@JoeArpaioFan AZ has in the past issued over 30k DLs to people in the US on deferred actions.  Anyone Joke busts as an "illegal" can ask for a hearing, and it could take 3 years for that hearing to occur.  During that time, they get a work permit and can get a DL!

@david_saint01 @JoeArpaioFan Maybe not but even if you get all the signatures you need doesn't mean that he will be recalled. I doubt though you will even come close to getting all you need. At least not all legitimate ones.

@WhoKnows  

Actually he has had his picture taken at the Fedex Maildrop already..

@WhoKnows @JoeArpaioFan Nope.  But you are welcome to wait there because if you do you will have a long wait because I only go there about once every few months. Have fun though waiting. But if you do get bored and maybe even hungry waiting there is a really good Subway sandwich shop almost next door that has fantastic sandwiches.

@JoeArpaioFan @david_saint01 @danzigsdaddy you're acting like an asshole whos out to intimidate anyone who doesnt agree with him...thats not the way to get your point across. And when you do say that kind of stuff, it just tells me that you have nothing intelligent to say and must resort to that instead. the SS did shit like that, be better than them!
