More Proof Joe Arpaio is a Corrupt Mofo

Our sister paper, the Phoenix New Times, has covered Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio longer and more truthfully than any publication. Its coverage is so thorough it remembers when Know Nothings were attacking Arpayaso for his supposedly soft approach to illegal immigrants. And all this time, the New Times has shown--again and again--that Arpayaso is Barney Fife combined with the worst of Richard Nixon.

This week, the paper is at it again.

In an exhaustive, masterful cover story, reporter Ray Stern lays out the latest findings of how Arpayaso and his henchman used the powers of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office to pursue vendettas against political opponents, vendettas that led to indictments that were all eventually thrown out of court for being absolutely, laughably flimsy. Stern also unearthed evidence that shows Arpayaso knew of, even ordered, some of the latest corruptions, even as the feds breathed down his neck.

Sadly, this cover story will probably do nothing. Those of us who know Arpayaso's ways will only hope this feature finally brings him down, while the Know Nothings (which in Orange County, constitute Arpayaso's second-largest fan base) will turn their heads away because of their rampant hatred of Mexicans. Sigh . . . now, let the nasty comments commence!

What is so ironic to me is that Gustavo uses the term "know nothings" to describe someone's politcal point of view, but yet, some of his biggest fans/supporters can't even spell or put a few simple words together to form a complete sentence. Panchito is the best example you could ever ask for. Go ahead Gustavo, show him som love. You know you want to.

So Gustavo, now that you have tackled this tough piece, when are you going to do a story on corruption in the Mexican police system? It shouldn't be difficult since every one of them is corrupt. All you have to do is talk with one and you have your source. Anything he tells you doesn't even have to be confirmed (not that you practice responsible journalism anyway) for obvious reasons.

Figures a mexican wrote this article. If half of the illegals in AZ went through the proper channels and obtained legal citizenship, you could vote him out of office.

So, is your problem that he is tought on crime? This guy wins elections with 80+ percent of the vote. How about directing some of your investigative reporting to illegal alien criminals.

Maybe you should use some of your money for English lessons. Your spelling is poor, at best. And I'd rather own one nice house, like the one I do own, than 47 shacks in TJ. But, don't worry. One good rain should wash them down the river, and you can start over.

Thanks for the offer to email me, but I have absolutely no interest in anything you have to say.

It's funny how you conveniently forgot to mention the first 3 corrupt MCSO employees that the flaccid fool was forced to bust, as I recall all three were white "Americans', here let me remind you:

Yeah, who cares about corruption as long as you're going after illegals? I'm sure you voted for Carona, too...WEAK SAUCE!

I don't know the law, but if doing what this Rosemary Wilcox (employer of illegals) did in 'borrowing' money from an ethnic activist organization ('chicanos por la causa) and then approving their development plans , sure should be.

no.illegals should been send back. we have a legal system that is in place to allowed people to come based on the need or whatever reasons are in place.most of the honest people respect the law. i am sure that is not what you do.

You must been drinking a lot.To became a citizen you need to have a clean wrap sheet. Illegals allready committed a crime for just being here.Crossing the border still is illegal.We are a lot of immigrants but we all came legal here. Maybe we didn't like the way we had to come but we did it. Do you have any ideea how many good people would like to stay here, but they prefer to go back because they don't like to break the law.Probably Mexicans never heard of laws. Maybe that's why is in their country situation that is there forever. Mexicans know to inforce laws when come to other people passing thru their country.

Un poco amargo, tio, after the glorious E-verify decision?

It is regrettable, however, that Arpaio has stooped to the level of, say, the Obama 'Justice' department in using the power to investigate against those it disagrees with politically.

Meanwhile, your open-borders boy Dupnik (man, does that name ever fit) can't protect a Congresswoman, but can wax a veteran.

As I understand a judge threw Arpayaso's case out the window for lack of merit (evidence of wrong doing) on Wilcox case.

Illegal immigration is a misdeanor civil offence, not a criminal one, fool.

 "wrap" sheet?  Looks like somebody has been drinking.  As for your assertion that "just being here is a crime," please show us the precise citation under federal law.  Non-lawyers should be careful giving out legal opinions.  You are in over your head, chief.
