Let me start with a quote from one article;

Arpaio's raids have "created fear in the business community," Romley said, and "no one can question it has not been effective."


So, the infamous "Sherriff Joe" seems to be under fire once again.

Not for pink paint or animal shelters, but for using state funds to fight illegal immigration.

Out of the 6.8 million state funds allocated, Sherriff Joe expected $700,000 this fiscal year, but Romley says he will keep all $1.2 million in state money for 2011 and spend it on attorneys, legal assistants, and detectives.
Here's what Sherriff Joe has to say;

Arpaio said his raids have been successful in cracking down on illegal immigration.

He said 36 investigations have resulted in 415 arrests, with 277 people facing identity-theft charges. Arpaio said he is disappointed that he no longer will get state money but said the raids will continue.

"It doesn't matter. We are still going to do our job," Arpaio said. "There will be no change."

I think Sherriff Joe should run against Romley for state Attorny General.

Then he can go after those public servants who abuse office and misuse funds.

Regarding Sherriff Joe fighting a subpoena to surrender financial documents...
(could be another thread)

The Sheriff's Office released a statement from Arpaio saying the agency disagrees with the judge's ruling, but they intend to comply with the court order.

By willingly handing over the documents, Arpaio also avoids the spectacle of supervisors holding him in contempt.

The county is preparing to hire a policy-compliance consultant to review the information, Deputy County Manager Sandi Wilson said. The board requested detailed credit-card transactions, work assignments, a list of all detainees or defendants extradited and a list of all bank accounts dating to 2005.

County officials are concerned about some transactions and want to verify that county spending and procurement guidelines are being followed.

Eventually, Wilson said county officials will review credit-card policies of other county departments.

But with a 3,000-person workforce, the Sheriff's Office is the county's largest department, with the most credit cards.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio to surrender financial documents

Eventually the state will find a way to oust Sherriff Joe, since the county residents seem incined to keep him in office.

well no wonder, Obama has issued a directive to
the Supreme Court to NOT prosecute businesses
who hire illegal immigrants. Wouldn't taking
funding away from the agencies doing it be
a prime example of that presidential directive??

Little noticed, last Friday the Obama administration yet again tried
to make it easier for illegal aliens to stay in the United States. In a brief
filed with the Supreme Court, the administration asked the court to
carve out a special exemption for businesses who break the law by
hiring illegal aliens.

Romley is following orders from the Prez !!!!

As the gulf deepwater disaster saturates the NEWS, I am not a bit surprised that this flew under the radar. What other events will follow suit?

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

The Administration is furthering their agenda in ways that, were they not real, would be viewed as a great work of fiction.

It is truly amazing that at every turn there is an event that seems to trump it's predicessor in ways that seem exist beyond imagination.

A masterpiece in every sense of the word.
