|Godfather's Pizza CEO/Gop presidential candidate Herman Cain.|
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio met with leaders from the Methodist Border Mission Network at his Phoenix office this afternoon to discuss -- amongst other things -- some issues the group has with the sheriff's policies towards illegal immigration.
But that's not the big news -- the big news is that presidential candidate Herman Cain is coming to town next week to pucker up to Arpaio's derriere
with the hopes that he'll endorse his candidacy.
"By the way...I have four presidential candidates, running for president, two have called, one has been here in this room," the sheriff inexplicably bragged to the Methodists during a discussion about immigration. "On Monday another one will be in this room talking to me. I'm talking about Herman Cain."
Given the recent problem's with the sheriff's 79-year-old memory
, we figured we'd double check with MCSO spokesman Lieutenant Justin Griffin, who confirms to New Times
that Cain and Arpaio are scheduled to meet on Monday.
And, of course, Griffin says the sheriff will likely hold a press conference.More »
