  •  It's too bad you can't hold elections in July (8+ / 0-)

    instead of November, because you wouldn't have all the snowbirds there to vote, only the true locals who can make it through an Arizona summer.

    •  A primary would be held in summer, but (1+ / 0-)

      I don't know whether Joe had a primary contest.  Not going to bother to Google it, though.  He has been re-elected and Maricopa County isn't going to do anything to change that.

      I like Mother Mags' writing, but in this situation, I do think "Yes, you did re-elect him, so he must have enough people who think he's doing right".  I haven't heard of election fraud, or voter fraud, though I haven't paid that close of attention.  If he was re-elected without those, then the majority of voters in that county are fine with his racist, wasteful and mean ways.  If the residents of the area want to have otherwise, they need to express that by defeating or recalling him.  They can't rely upon the Department of Justice riding to their rescue.  The DOJ under this President doesn't prosecute elected officials, especially when it would be seen as a political prosecution, no matter what evidence is uncovered.
