Have a heart attack soon.
He doesn't eat well, he's out of shape, he's old and he stresses a lot.
My biggest problem with Arpaio is that he's so technical and anal about what the law is, he loses sight of the fact that the majority of the people
in that county don't agree with him. He's all about doing the bidding of those who vote for him and doesn't take into consideration anyone else.
So why don't they vote him out you say? That's a good question. My money is on the fact that if everyone who doesn't like him voted, he'd be
unemployed. Christ, he's 80. Why does he even WANT to work?
The point is, the numbers add up to where a minority of the county population votes for Arpaio, but within that minority, the majority are the silver
surfers up in Sun City and the likes who "like the way he thinks" Which is antiquated by current Maricopa county standards. And to make matters
worse, you don't even have to live in Maricopa county full time to be considered a resident to where you can register to vote. I think it's a 6
month residency requirement, which is perfect for the snowbirds who still want to participate in the "Democratic" process of voting.
Yeah, that doesn't sound very democratic to me when you can have what are realistically part time residents vote for a full time Sheriff.
