Formers meet to pile on Arpaio — again*

The effort to recall Sheriff Joe Arpaio has the potential to be deadly serious as evidenced by the negative impact on the public safety of Maricopa County citizens. But the news conference hastily assembled Wednesday, featuring a load of out of work “law enforcement officials,” provided much needed comic relief to the shaky endeavor.

In an article titled Law-enforcement veterans join Arpaio recall, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) writes, “Respect Arizona released statements purported to have been provided by retired Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris and retired Phoenix Assistant Police Chief Bill Louis, accusing Arpaio of misleading supporters by taking sole credit for community safety. Former U.S. Attorney for Arizona Paul Charlton and former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard were also quoted in the group’s statements.”

And since there was sure to be a microphone and cameras present, former Phoenix Mayor Philly Gordon, the object of a recall himself, for his steadfast support of sanctuary city status for the city’s illegals, showed up. He did little of that when he was in office.

The key words are “purported,” “retired” and “former.” This gathering of has-beens, as badly in need of resuscitation, as the recall group, could only engender news coverage at the equally declining AZ República.

The group assembled in an attempt to make book on a fundraising letter sent out by Sheriff Arpaio’s campaign.

The new movement to undercut elections by way of recalls got its initial steam when a single legislative district, scorched by newly imposed boundaries, waged a successful recall of Senate President Russell Pearce, architect of Arizona’s popular SB1070. Those who get their daily dose of leftward bias from the liberal newspaper might think the word preceding the bill number is “controversial.”

Know this. It all revolves around illegal immigration — an issue which the “formers” can not get their fill of.  They despise Sheriff Arpaio for his enforcement of immigration laws — exactly why the rest of us support him

    How hypocritical that the liberals engaging in what could potentially be a very expensive recall election of a sheriff who was just elected in November, are criticizing him for seeking donations to defend himself. He’s been forced to defend himself against the underhanded recall they initiated!

  2. Army Of One says:

    Sheriff Arpaio will have my support as long as he runs. He’s an American patriot who fought for our country, and also has years of city, federal and county law enforcement experience. He’s earned our loyalty.

  3. Orion says:

    In reelecting Señor Juan McCain and allowing Jeff McFlake to squeak in as a US Senator, we have bowed before the altar of RINOism. It will be ever more difficult for Republicans to win elections, since they act just like Democrats, with little concern for maintaining respect for a lawful country. These gooms have rightly called themselves “gang” members.

  4. LD 7 PC says:

    Listen to the contemptible words of these out of work politicos:
    “Arizona law enforcement will continue to fight crime and ensure public safety long after Mr. Arpaio leaves office,” Harris supposedly said.

    “Elected officials come and go, and the state moves on,” Gordon purportedly said.

    Would someone please tell me what kind of a law enforcement officer Felipe Gordo was? As Mayor, he encouraged illegals to continue to break the law and he would provide them sanctuary, funded by our taxes!.

    You said it all, SRAZ, when you wrote “comic relief”! Very apropos! ROFL! :-)

  6. Brandy Baron says:

    Our group (Remember 1986) will be in front of the painters union hall next Thursday (April 4th) to show support for Sheriff Joe as we welcome the Joe haters to their forum on the recall effort…
    Can’t wait to see how many show up for their Joe hate fest. The free refreshments shoukd bring a few out. LOL

  7. LEO IN TSN says:

    These law enforcement haters will never stop trying to destroy US, as long as they can get a little lemon light from the dimocrat propaganda machine. The “Rancorous ‘formers’” hate Sheriff Joe because he enforces the laws and he is still there. They all worked to violate their official oaths by extending special favors, protection and sanctuary to illegal alien criminals and indicted public officials, and they are all GONE.
    Their progressive empty skulls just cannot absorb that reality, so they will continue to fight it. They are the AZ poster boys for what is wrong with leftist American law “enforcement.”

    Follow the SRA link to the Rancorous Formers for an enlightening walk down memory lane, and more insight into their histories and strategy. Thanks SRA, keep shining the spotlight of truth on these cockroaches.

    God bless Sheriff Joe and all patriotic law enforcers. God bless America.

    Sheriff Joe does not make the laws, he enforces the laws made by the Legislature. Are these Democrats, including the former Attorney General who is so ignorant, well not the word is stupid, he does not know that? Then he wonders why he lost the election for Governor. But then Terry Goddard had offices all over the state to make settlements and stay out of court, now we know why.

    • eubykdisop says:

      Hi, Delilah! :-)

      SRAZ recently did an article about AG Horne arguing the Prop 200 case before SCOTUS. One of the Justices asked Horne why the State of Arizona didn’t simply ask the feds to modify their form to include a proof of citizenship provision, as several other states had successfully lobbied for modifications. Horne said he couldn’t speculate on that point because that happened under a previous AG, Terry Goddard! So Goddard might have been able to get the feds to add proof of citizenship to their voter registration form BUT he never even made the effort to request that! Duh!

      • Delilah says:

        Thanks Euby,

        LOL, more Democrat stupidity. Goddard was a horrible Mayor, and terrible AG and now too stupid to know the law.

      • eubykdisop says:

        LOL! Goddard gets dumb about the law when it is convenient, from a Liberal Democrat perspective, to be dumb about it! ;-)
