Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been in office for 20 years now and for the first time ever even he must see his embarrassing reign of terror is in jeopardy. His office has been rocked by scandals, the justice department is investigating him and many Arizonians are sick of elected officials making the state a laughingstock. Two viable candidates Mike Stauffer and Paul Penzone have join the race against him, and at the very least offer voters a real alternative to Joe.
So what does Sheriff Joe do? He decides to investigate The President of the United States Barack Obama convinced that he is not a natural born citizen of the country. It seems every time things don't go his way Sheriff Joe has to find something sensational to tell the press. So now apparently he's investigating things outside his jurisdiction such as the validity of the President's birth certificate and U.S. Selective Service Registration.
Sheriff Joe says that he has the best interests of the people in Maricopa County at heart but somehow I don't think the quite means what he thinks it does. Is Maricopa County that crime free that he could afford to go off and chase after a scandal that has long since been debunked? He says no taxpayer money was used but what about his own time and the money spent on his pay? He is a county employee and so were everyone involved in the press conference. What about the press releases written and all the supplies used did Sheriff Joe make a quick run to Staples?
I think it's about time we got rid of this Joke of a Sheriff if for no other reason than to stop the embarrassment Arizona has been receiving on nearly a daily basis since Joe first realize his days in office were now numbered. So keep this in mind when you're voting this November.
