Christine Jones Is Pro-Joe Arpaio, but Seems Clueless About What the Sheriff Does

Christine Jones (well, the top third).


Christine Jones, the former Go Daddy executive who's running for governor, is a big fan of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

3TV has the footage of Jones giving a gushing review of the sheriff in front of a crowd, including Arpaio, at a charity event. 3TV also has the footage of Jones, a Republican, seeming completely clueless about who Arpaio is.

Aside from calling Arpaio a man of "integrity" and "honesty" -- ha! -- there are a few bizarre claims she made for the camera.

One is that the majority of MCSO employees are Hispanic. Nope.

Another, that Arpaio puts water out for immigrants crossing the Rio Grande. Forget the fact that the Rio Grande doesn't really come close to Arizona -- Arpaio's never put out any water in the desert for immigrants.

But the best part about the interview was when 3TV's Dennis Welch asks Jones about Arpaio's famous immigrant-hunting sweeps. Jones' answer: Huh?

"I honestly don't know about somebody pulling somebody over or targeting particular people," she said.

Wow, who knew there could be a gubernatorial candidate with a deeper love for Arpaio than "Candy Andy" Thomas?

Dear Gubernatorial Candidate Jones; 

#1.  If elected Arizona Governor what would you do about the Corrupt, and Racist Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery that let his Border Patrolling Minute Man Date Chris Simcox off the hook for Child Molesting his own Daughter, and her freinds?!!

#2. What would you do about the 450 plus cases of Child Abuse, including Child Rape that Sheriff Arpaio intentionally ignored?!!

#3. How will you stop the M.C.S.O. from Racially Profiling?!!

#4. When will Arizona "Enforce all of our Laws including Child Molesting"!!!!!!!

#5. Which States Border the Rio Grande River?!

Good Luck Potential Governor.

Why do so many tea-chugging conservative political wannabes appear to pride themselves on being completely ignorant about U.S. history, geography, and our Democratic Republic system of governance?

Anyone else notice that she kind of has this Sarah Palin look going on, but with Crazy Eyed Bachmann's eyes?

It's embarrassing that someone running for the top office in Arizona is so ignorant as to not even know that the Rio Grande isn't anywhere near Arizona and it is the Colorado River that shares part of the border with Arizona.

That Maricopa County and Nickel Bag Joe aren't anywhere near the Colorado River or the border is just about as embarrassing.

Now that I look at her.. she does kind of look like Palin in the face.. Bachmann too... I guess crazy stupid has a similar look....

If Arizona elects this woman, it will be amazing, arizonans will have actually elected someone dumber than GED Gin Jan

I can see Joe Arpaio personally guarding the border of the Rio Grande, from my upstairs porch, but it's very small.

Hey Christine, try reading a newspaper, or better yet read U.S. District Court Judge G. Murray Snow's ruling. What a dope.

The reference to the Rio Grande makes me wonder if it might have been just a slip of the tongue caused by the fact that she was thinking to herself "Don't say 'wetbacks'.  Don't say 'wetbacks' ..."

if she's aligned herself with arpaio, why would you think she would admit to knowing of arpaio' indiscretions?

You never hear Harry Reid bad mouthing Obama...

@Robert-graham;

You knew you wern't gay when that thing hit the back of your throat, right?!

Your not "Clueless about what Arpaio doe's", are you?

As the M.C.S.O. turns.

@Flyer9753 and this woman actually claims to be a lawyer. Seriously? Something tells me she didn't get her degree (or her job) with her brains...more likely she got them on her back or her knees, if you get my drift....lawyer or not, she's a dumb bitch. Probably a Koch-sucking, Tea Party ho.

Is this even possible Flyer? GED Jan IS dumber than a bag of bricks.

@valleynative, and what makes u think that that's her thought, she's so dumb that even that scapes her imagination. It seems more that that's ur thought. RACIST MUCH?????.

So, in your mind, a person who is patriotic and religious is pretty clearly a Tea Party member?You don't really like having to deal with a full spectrum of personalities, do you?  More of a "one of us" or "one of them" kind of guy?The fact that she graduated from law school and held positions of great responsibility says she's tremendously more qualified than Brewer.If you go through life making snap judgments about people and then re-interpreting the facts to fit your decision, you'll be able to avoid a lot of actual thinking, but you'll make a lot of mistakes, too.  You might consider opening your mind just a little.- valleynative speaking about christine jones.

Did this story alone change your perspective?

@yourproductsucks2  

It's hard to say whether she's just not admitting to knowing, or if she really doesn't know.  Maybe a little of each.  She's certainly not qualified to hold office.

A perfect representative of your personal image of the "Tea Party mentality".  You can see how that's self-fulfilling, can't you?

@Cozz Our sitting guv is "Gin Jan" or "GED Jan." If Ms. GoDaddy makes it to the state capitol I will proclaim her to be Governor Bimbo B. Stupid Head. She is a blond, right?

Clueless, yes.  Unique to Arizona, of course not.   There are morons everywhere, and many of them seem to be drawn into "public service".

@IdontRecall  

Hey, moron, how's it going?   I rarely bother to read, let alone respond to your comments, but since most of your words were spelled out and few were all caps, I wonder if maybe you're finally on some decent medication.

Maybe you should give them a little more time to take full effect before posting, though. Good luck!

@yourproductsucks2 She worked for Go Daddy, one of the most proudly sexist firms in the country.  I do my very best to support local businesses, but I draw the line with ones whose ad campaigns are centered FOR YEARS on "woman as sex object."  The first observation I ever had about Jones:   she aligns herself with social conservatives, yet she accepted a pay check from a business that demeans women in the most public of ways.  Something tells me that in addition to thinking Sheriff Joe is the berries, she would also admire Governor Ultrasound in Virginia and his AG who wants to outlaw birth control.

@yourproductsucks2 The fact that she thinks the Rio Grande flows thru AZ would cause anyone (except for you, perhaps) to wonder what else she doesn't know.

@yourproductsucks2  

You do understand the difference between a snap judgement based on minimal information and a decision based on a full interview and public speech, right?

Snap decisions are bad.  That doesn't mean they're always wrong, just always bad.

I am not arguing her qualifications...to be honest, I've never heard of her.

Having worked in the mental health field, my comment is based on the actions and behaviors, I have observed from several Tea Party members, both locally and nationally. They take lies and ignorance and try to justify a political movement with them.

@danzigsdaddy @Dontbelieveit I had second thoughts after I posted it .....you're quite right ,the vermin is spread wide and far but I guess cause I live here and try to keep up with the different political corruption that I forget HOW FAR it's spread out!

@yourproductsucks2  

It's been a frustrating day.  Maybe I'm being too harsh.  My point is that I defended her against a baseless attack.  The fact that she later shows herself to be a moron doesn't mean I regret defending her against that baseless attack.

yourproductsucks2

No need to take a patronizing tone. You are defending her on one blog and trashing her on the next. I think the question regarding yourchange of heart is valid.

@shadeaux14 @valleynative  

If you had really worked in the field, you would know better than to make such generalizations, even from "several" Tea Party members.  Unless that's why you no longer work in the field.

being a patient hardly qualifies as "working in the field"
