Such small spending sounds like incidental theft, but fun shiat.

I've had this happen to me. I was here in Phoenix and went to the ATM to withdraw cash and the account was locked. I called in and someone from Chicago had charged $500 on it ....

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's credit-card information was stolen and used to make a $300 transaction at a Chicago store this weekend, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office on Monday.

Arpaio was in Chicago for the weekend, officials said. The purchase was made at a grocery store there.

It was unclear whether Arpaio's credit card was stolen or if the transaction was made by another means.


BULLSH*T. I call BULLSH*T.

I wonder if this is to distract from this little bit of fun:

The public-relations piece for Arpaio aired on the TV show "NRA News Cam & Co" -- which can be found on the Sportsman Channel -- and it portrays the Sheriff as a guy who's doing something about gun-violence at schools.

Of course, there are a few casual omissions:

> There's no mention of the fact that these posse members never go inside the schools, or on school grounds.

> There's no mention of the fact that the 50-something schools that have a posse member taking laps outside aren't all of the schools in the county. Nearly all of the schools that are covered are smaller schools.

> Arpaio claims yet again that the "only difference" between deputies and posse members is that the posse members don't get paid. They're just not deputies in any sense.

> Don't forget KPHO's reporting on the posse members caught up in criminal activity. The NRA's "investigative reporter" missed that.

The article doesn't say whether it was a personal credit card or a government credit card. For all we know the $300 is .01 cent out of each resident's tax bill.

Someone charged $55 to my card at a Best Buy in Chicago last week. It was me. I needed a cable modem on Sunday afternoon for a Monday morning install because screw you AT&T.
 
2013-02-04 05:53:47 PM  
His "investigators" will no doubt discover it was a conspiracy between the governor of Hawaii and the mayor of Chicago.  We should demand to see hise original, long form credit card receipts for the past 5 years.
 
2013-02-04 05:54:32 PM  
Wow, that's likely more money than he ever gave to charity.

Most of the old people I've met don't like anyone, including themselves. I hope I don't end up like that. I'm 51 now but so far no sign of age induced authoritarianism.

Phoenix New Times has been trying to take him down at least I lived there in the late 90s'. Nothing will get Arpaio out of office other than a dead girl, a live boy or a felony arrest warrant. And I'm not sure about the last one.

Nine times out of ten it's an electric razor. But ... every once in a while[looks around, leans in conspiratorially] ... it's a dildo.[leans back] Of course, it's company policy never to imply ownership in the event of a dildo. We have to use the indefinite article, "a dildo", never ...your dildo.

Victim of a credit card skimmer? I'm always cautious of using card swiping devices that are accessible by everyone since skimmers are easily installed. I prefer ones that are only used by the cashiers themselves if I swipe. (I know that they could install one themselves also but at least there is some accountability if/when they start tracing the theft)

You know... I'm pretty disgusted by the reaction here.

My family lives down in Phoenix and while I get it that Sheriff J.A. is unpopular here on fark... he's actualy quite popular down there. (Oh and let me just start saying. I'm don't like him at all, but that's for people down there to decide for themselves.)

Why? Is he popular? Because he's perceived as actually doing something about crime rather than just being a typical PC do nothing bureaucrat. True or not... it's how he's perceived.

Add on that he's got a rep for being tough on animal abuse and you get a good idea why he's popular.... not that this'll change the impression here on Fark.

The truth is, in the last election... up against Paul Penzone he was routinely 5-15 points ahead throughout the race.

To the people wishing more of the same criminal actions or condoning it against JA. grow up! You should be ashamed because you're letting your personal dislike advocate him being victimized as okay.

I do NOT like Sheriff joe because I think he's corrupt and think he needs to go... but I don't let my personal opinion allow me to become an uncivilized jerk about it.

How'd you like it if a cop did the same to you. Maybe you get robbed and that officer says. "You had it coming I'm going to buy that criminal a drink because he did that to you. And I'm not going to arrest him if he does it again to you. In fact I'm going to let all the criminal element know that you're open game. That they can do whatever they want to you and I'll encourage it."

nice concept?
i thought not.
