Prediction Poll: How Will Joe Arpaio Leave Office?

Categories: Morning Poll
arpaio-bed.jpg
What if Arpaio falls down, and his Life Alert necklace is out of reach?
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will not be recalled from office. At least, not anytime soon.

Respect Arizona didn't reveal how many petition signatures they gathered in their recall effort after the clock ran out last week, and Arpaio tried to claim that the group didn't reveal the number of signatures due to being "embarrassed by the level of their failure."

Respect Arizona didn't turn over the signatures to the county, knowing it didn't have the more than 330,000 signatures needed, since our colleague Stephen Lemons reported that a county official said it would cost about $1.5 million to verify the signatures. Not surprisingly, this concept of being judicious with taxpayer money is a point lost on the elderly Sheriff.

With this recall effort failing, though, we want your predictions on how Arpaio will be leaving office, considering a few factors, like his old age, his recent medical issues, and thorough history of mismanagement, among other things.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict he will resign.  Arpaio wants us to believe he never will resign. 

I say it's bullshit. He will resign if we keep the presure on him. He can barely show up to work now and he knows his days are numbereed after the Snow decision.   The longer he hangs on the worst his legacy will be.  He knows it.

Joe is not leaving office -- period -- so stop your whining because you cannot have it your way.

hes over 80 and overweight. there are enough whack jobs that keep voting for him and he isnt going to give up the chance to be on TV...............so "dead" is the only real answer. I truly believe the DOJ is coming for him, but i think old age and stress are going to get him before the DOJ does. justice is slow, but it will eventually come one way or the other. i just dont want to be waiting or hoping for a funeral to be rid of him.......it just doesnt feel right to want that. i want him to suffer justice in a court

I actually think that Joke's own health will be his downfall.  Since the February "evil sidewalk" event, he seems to have lost it.  No finger waving and spitting press conferences, and seems to be only shown behind his desk (wheelchair?)

The BOS can act to replace him if he's not physically able to be the idiot he's been for the last how many years? (I just can't say "unable to preform his job", as he really never has done that...)

kicking and screaming and to the cheers of millions. whoever inherits his office after him is going to have a daily reminder of Joe every time he looks at the floor and door frame and sees the scratch marks as they dragged him from that office

Teflon Joe has gotton away with Massive Corruption in his , yes His Office, Massive Miss-use of Tax Payer Dollars, Many in Custody "Wrongful Deaths, even of our returning War Veteran's, and It is my "Oppinion" that Arpaio's Dirty little Fingers have been Missapropriating M.C.S.O. Funds, Ricoh, ect. into his own Dirty Pockets for many years.

I am Pleasantly Amazed at Judge Snow's Honesty, and Courage to Rule Honestly, and with Courage against this Ruthless Old Racist "Tyrant".

Arpaio has been Re-elected on a "Wave of Bigotry" he was Damn sure not Re-elected for doing his Job!

Please Teflon, leave any way you want to, just LEAVE.

You are the "Worst Thing in Arizona History."

@jonnyquest  good one. we know he cant drive, so what do they do? put him on a go-cart...........sounds to me like they are trying to do him in at MCSO

@ Arpaio's Butt Apendage Did Joe fall on the sidewalk while having a "Period"?

@JAFFYQUACK, He might not be leaving by now, but the OLD FART is not going to be in charge of MCSO anymore, -since it seems that He is no longer fit for office-I guaranty it. Within 2 weeks a Monitor couldl be appointed, to immediately take charge and conduct an Audit to see how much money might be missing. MARK MY WORDS. LLLOOOSSEEERR.

@danzigsdaddy Whack jobs voting for him? Go fuck yourself you whiny half a sissy. How can you have your head in your ass for so long without suffocating? What, are you a magician?

@danzigsdaddy No the DOJ is not coming for him. They are however going to be coming for Eric Holder soon though.

@danzigsdaddy I've got news for you. When Joe does finally retire, the person who takes his office will be tougher. If you don't like Arpaio you are really not going to like the next sheriff.

jonnyquest
jonnyquest topcommenter

Uh, no. That's mockery. I'm surprised you didn't recognize it.

robert_graham
robert_graham

@IdontRecall I beg your pardon... he most certainly is still in charge and he will continue to be for a long time.  It's just that you people are such sore losers but you really should rest your neck because there is nothing you can do to oust Arpaio. Each time you have tried you have lost.

Truth is, nothing that Joe has ever done is wrong, unethical or against the law.  He will be appealing that ruling and I guarantee you he will win because his deputies do not racial profile. Only the sick mind of a liberal thinks so.

To give you a good example of how stupid you people are, when I went to that Camp Snoopy I asked some dumb bitch in a booth this:  "if a Hispanic is driving on Jefferson speeding or missing a license plate (and I pointed behind me to the street) and a deputy or cop is there and notices, is it right or wrong to pull the driver over?

Wanna know what she said???? She said OH NO, THAT IS RACIAL PROFILING TO PULL OVER THE DRIVER BECAUSE HE IS HISPANIC!

I said "excuse me?" I just about punched her in the face for talking so stupid.

NO IT IS NOT RACIAL PROFILING TO PULL A HISPANIC DRIVER OVER FOR BREAKING THE LAW!!!!!!!!  JUST WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?

@winnarizona  actually "enough whack jobs" does not infer to "ALL" Joe voters, but your explosive overreaction does kind of put you in that category. maybe you should have them up your lithium dosage. the "Enough" i was referrencing was more along the lines of people like HILLFOLKREDNECK who cry that they arent racist while also putting out comments like "race traitor" to people who object to Joe. or even JoeArpaioFan who condones the death of anyone and anything that varies slightly from his opinion. but since you seem to so readily identify with the term "whack-job" and seem to want to consider yourself as one of them..........who am i to object. (by the way,my father voted for him, but he doesnt quite fall into the same category as those that i mentioned.............do you?)

@danzigsdaddy Something that offended me can always be taken back. I hope that applies to everyone. I only stay mad for a little while. Then I realize that resistance is futile. Now days people see what they want to see, everyone is right and if you disagree, you are bad. This all started over the whack job comment. But I learned some stuff and some stuff made me angry. Thank God and our constitution we can still debate. I enjoyed our debate, Thank you. :)

@danzigsdaddy Well I can not know what you interpreted  or if maybe just like our conversation some words did not come out like we intended. I have followed things for years, you have seen things differently than I have. But no laws have been broken. I have seen Joe donate money and push for the protection of children. This web site, New Times is the worst propaganda site in the country. I will probly get banned for stating that fact.

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

just like i said something that offended you and connot be taken back...............his disregard for those children and rape victims is the number one thing foremost in my mind, and it is something he can  never take back either.my daughter has passed on, but if she was one of those victims..................thats all i can think about, and it enrages me to the point of no return. i do not know if you are male or female, but if you were one of those victims..i would still be here voicing my concern for those cases being shoved aside. they were victims and should have been afforded the comfort that a man as PR savvy as Joe could have given them..............he didnt

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

my number one reason..................his apology to the rape victims. to me.rape is worse than murder and he cast doubt on those victims with his "IF THERE WERE ANY VICTIMS" i have known rape victims and it is horrid what they must have to live with. i have even rallied against PPD for their unsolved cases. Joe however has assigned no blame and those cases were left in the wayside. that is worse than the mismanaged money or unneccessary deaths to me. that is just one crime that to me goes against god and man and if i were sheriff, would be something that would be handled differently. any man who doesnt give those crimes (especially against children) priority.........isnt a man, nor are they human (my opinion)

winnarizona

@danzigsdaddy @winnarizona The problem is most things you are talking about are not facts. Fabrications made up by opponents. Think about it, if the President can not take him out then.......? Joe is a tired old man who loves our country and upholds our laws. You seem now like an intelligent person. There is no way Arpaio could get away with what you claim, everyone hates Joe, but he does his job and voters respect that. I got a traffic ticket that I still think was unwarranted. As pissed off as I was, I paid it. Am I suppose to hate Joe now?

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@winnarizona we have tried to vote against them. read old NT blogs and see how well that was recieved. i fought for my country in the 80's and have not stopped after i got out. with politics today though...........its a battle we will never win. all i want is for Joe to answer for things like Marty Atencio and Deborah Braillards deaths. the over 400 plus sex crimes that were never investigated. the US citizens who are caught in the middle of his war against illegals. I want Holder, Obama and Clinton to answer for their agencies or departments and i damn well want Arpaio to answer for his too. someone is in charge of the people in those agencies and MUST answer for those people. Joe is is a agency head, he needs to be up front answering questions. "I dont recall" doesnt cut it for me.

winnarizona

@danzigsdaddy @winnarizona I have been following Joe for over 15 years. I have heard all the opposition and negative things. They have all gone no where. He has done what we hired him to do. People have tried to make a case against him and all failed, including Obama. What is it about a law enforcement officer that enforces the law bothers you?

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@winnarizona drop a email and i will explain the wrong he has done, the good he has done and the complete and utter failure his PR team is doing. follow old posts of mine and you will actually see  "if he did what he did because he believed in his job, i would hate him less.."in there. he has become a media figure, not the sheriff i voted for in the beginning

@winnarizona (the name is a long story and as for DANZIG himself.............used to be a fan.not so much anymore. . and i get heated on the comments. sometimes i make comments where you would be 100% correct and it is pointed out by people like YPS, but this time i though i was VERY clear.)

winnarizona
winnarizona

@danzigsdaddy @winnarizona well we have a justice system that I somewhat believe in. The fact none can find fault in anything he has done tells me he is doing the job we hired him to do.

@danzigsdaddy @winnarizona Perhaps your wording could have been better, but re reading it all, it still does not come across in an understanding way. I always hated danzig, perhaps that is part of my distain,

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@winnarizona i am going to include you in this category. MANY Arpaio supporters dont tkae the time to hear his opponents out. many of us are against illegal immigration too, but are pissed that he has ignored sex crimes. we are just as pissed with PPD and others, they just arent denying that those crimes occurred/

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@winnarizona  he can go after all the illegals he wants, it doesnt change that he has ignored and bungled other crimes like child molestations and mismanaged millions of dollars. i am against illegal immigration, but he needs to devote his time to other crimes that are more serious. a drunk driver is more dangerous than a dishwasher

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@winnarizona first off, i actually voted for Joe (the first time around) i didnt vote the second time. the third time i had my doubts (and they were serious) but i rallied against him after that. if i said EVERY Joe voter i would be including myself. reread and slow down before assuming everyone who is against Joe is against you. if you read any of my older comments, i actually said there were points that i could agree with him on, but his craving for the media has made me doubt his motives. he has done SOME good, but his bad far outweighs the good

winnarizona

@danzigsdaddy Why post what you did in the first place? I am kinda starting to like you now.......Doh!

winnarizona
winnarizona

@danzigsdaddy You are performing damage control. Not very good. And you are missing my point. Your post which you now claim was not general, well that fails. You keep saying I am including myself, well yes, I voted for Joe. Every attempt to say he broke the law failed even by the justice department. Why? He has done nothing but enforce the law. The only group I am in is the one that makes you angry, the one that wins. In reality I have no idea who you are, but I am not gonna  read your babble and not fire back. I studied history in school, and you are wrong. If that upsets you, tuff shit. Life is hard, deal with it.

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@winnarizona you have proven you cant read a comment and hear it, because i in no way said you did call anyone a race traitor. i told you why i am calling SOME of the Joe supporters whack-jobs by telling you what the ones i am referring to HAVE said. please reread the comment and point out where i said you have called anyone that...............you wont find it because it was never said by me. i said you had an explosive overreaction and i stand by that comment. you are still trying to change a comment to fit your belief of what i have said. the comment is still there and it is not edited because the 5 minute time period has elapsed.........so that comment is still exactly as it was written. show me where it says ALL Joe supporters are whack-jobs, show me where it pointed you specifically out. show me where it had you as a straight out loon.  you are the one putting yourself into the category of the Joe Arpaio nut case supporters by blowing up.and as for calling my father a whack-job.............i was pretty clear on saying he wasnt (i have always stood by him being misinformed though)

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@winnarizona     ahhh, i see, when i rallied against Obama and for gun rights i was probably an informed voter (and yes, i DID do both), when i wanted to see Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton and Obama explain and face the music for Benghazi, i was a good republican (and I am a republican, and firm on it too), but when i admit there are some Joe supporters that are nuts (and there are), suddenly i am slamming on each and every one of them? read the original comment again. it says "there are enough whack-job.." please let me know where it says each and every one of them. twist all you want, but when i said "I truly believe" it DID infer that i was speaking my opinion. please let me know where i said i had any kind of documentation or statistics to change my OPINION to fact. you are the one including yourself into the group i refer to, i even gave the name of the two main ones i am referrencing in my second comment

winnarizona
winnarizona

@danzigsdaddy Then you are a disgrace to your father. You lack the American spirit. You have stated no facts only your opinion. And yes you called me and your father a whack job. I never said race traitor, I said you were half a sissy. And I stand by that. This response you have givin is lackluster to say the most. You are a typical hide behind a keyboard and insult people who do not agree with you. You insult my vote and I am gonna fire back. If you don't like it go cry in the corner.
