  •  Arpaio is an opportunist (5+ / 0-)

    up for re-election so he's ramping up the hate for votes and my guess is that he will win re-election, unless the DOJ finds that he's guilty of abusing power.

    He has a long history in Maricopa County of unscrupulous behavior - disappearing evidence, falsely accusing, smearing and even arresting critics - and the county has paid out more than 50 million dollars in settlements.

    Arpaio rarely, if ever, goes to court, because he would lose, so he settles.
    Yet the voters in Maricopa County simply love him.

    Is Arpaio ignorant?

    Nope.

    He's a very smart conman.

      I love how he goes on Fox News and says that he's never lost a lawsuit.  That's because he never goes to court.  He's settled each and every one.  Can I make that $50million and counting because he's got several big ones in the legal pipeline.

      I'm so in love with being a taxpayer in Maricopa County.
