Good. And good luck.
 
2013-03-07 06:28:49 PM  
From his Twitter account:  "During my stay here at the hospital the doctor has confirmed with me and my wife Ava, I do have a heart."

Yeah, okay.
 
2013-03-07 06:32:20 PM  
Don't you usually have to put your name and address on a petition like this?  Have fun on your Tent City vacation, suckers.
 
2013-03-07 06:47:46 PM  
Is there any way the rest of us could sign it too?
 
2013-03-07 07:09:54 PM  
Didn't he just get re-elected by a healthy margin?
 
2013-03-07 07:23:16 PM  
Is it too late to recall Arizona's statehood?
 
2013-03-07 07:24:42 PM  
Recall? That farker should be in jail.
 
2013-03-07 07:25:51 PM  
He's going to beat this effort to get him out of office as well.

The gnashing of teeth will be epic!

PC LOAD LETTER: Didn't he just get re-elected by a healthy margin?


Yep

So they get the recall. There is another election. He wins again, prob by a wider margin since a I would say a lot of his supporters didn't bother to go out and vote since he was a shoo-in.

Depends on when we have the election. If it is in the summer time, the snow birds won't be here. This could very well tip the scales in favor of his opponent.
 
2013-03-07 07:52:07 PM  
assuming the recall effort is successful, I suspect there will be a VERY large 'accidental' fire in the records areas of the county offices.
 
2013-03-07 07:56:20 PM  
fark this man. He deserves to rot in the deepest, darkest cell of ADX Florence for what he has done to his fellow Americans.

He is the most patriotic, most American example of Fascism I can think of at the moment, and an example of everything that is wrong with law enforcement.

If it end up happening during the summer there might be a chance.  A lot of those racist old snowbird farks won't be around.

You guys are all missing one very important aspect to this...

VOTER DISENFRANCHISEMENT

/Along with other shameless acts put on by he and his flunkies that all but ensure his victory every election.
 
2013-03-07 08:11:26 PM  
It's a shame the FBI never found anything they could prosecute him for

FTFM
 
2013-03-07 08:12:54 PM  
 Ooo, I signed that one.  Hope he gets shiatcanned, not too hopeful though.

/ I remember seeing the other signatures on the same page as mine, almost all of them farked up the date (they put 2012).  Hope stuff like that doesn't invalidate them.
 
2013-03-07 08:22:06 PM  
Recalls are not "Wah, we don't like election results".
 
2013-03-07 08:23:45 PM  

PC LOAD LETTER: Didn't he just get re-elected by a healthy margin?


I'm not sure, but the last time I voted against him he had been losing ground in every election since he first got voted in.

I would still be voting against him but I don't live there anymore.

I'd bet if everyone who was eligible to vote did vote in Maricopa he would not be elected. And I'm still very suspicious of snowbirds who maintain a winter home in Sun City. I suspect a lot of them also vote in Idaho or Wyoming or wherever the fark they're from. This is why we need strict voter ID laws - cross-referenced with other states.

interesting that you seem to believe that's what they are....
 
2013-03-07 08:37:24 PM  
Hell yeah!  Let's recall a Sheriff for doing his job.
 
2013-03-07 08:40:57 PM  

LookForTheArrow: he's no goddamn Tony Stark.


Preach!
 
2013-03-07 08:41:00 PM  
Being a Maricopa County resident, I'm of 2 minds on this.

On the one hand, we need to get rid of that rotten piece of shiat for a lot of reasons unrelated to his immigration tactics. Look at how his department failed to investigate sex crimes for years as just one example.

On the other hand, 95% of the petition gatherers I've seen for this recall have been some of the rudest, most disrespectful people I've ever run into. They are persistent in their harassment. My workplace actually has had to ban 2 of them from the property, one permanently after we had to call the police on him for coming back early from his ban and refusing to leave again (it was city cops, not sheriff's deputies so don't worry).

In short, a pox on all of their houses for being scumbags.

Propain_az: Hell yeah!  Let's recall a Sheriff for doing his job.


actually, he's NOT doing his job.  that's kinda why he's being recalled.
 
2013-03-07 08:42:04 PM  

Propain_az: Hell yeah!  Let's recall a Sheriff for doing his job.


But he hasn't been doing his job.

oh sure, there you go again with your librul FACTS.  like THOSE matter to anyone!  psh.
 
2013-03-07 08:45:34 PM  
Don't worry. I'm sure he'll be able to pay off a sympathetic judge to invalidate half the signatures.
 
2013-03-07 08:45:34 PM  
Sheriff Joe is exactly the person needed down there.

We need to clone him and shrink him down so he can manually pilot missile armed drones.
 
2013-03-07 08:53:33 PM  
Look, I'd love to see Sheriff Joe recalled as much as anybody, but 100k is not half of 335k.  Sorry guys, adding a giant red area below zero won't make you have more signatures.

Recall elections are for sore losers.

Democracy has spoken, now STFU and GBT collecting welfare and harboring illegal aliens/criminals.

Not investigating rape is in his job description?

Republicans don't consider rape a crime.

A recall IS an election.
But I don't see the point in this. He's old, fat, and unhealthy, and Satan will take him home before the voters of Maricopa County get rid of him.
 
2013-03-07 09:59:08 PM  
That's gonna get a lot of dogs shot in no-knock raids.
 
2013-03-07 10:03:38 PM  
He may be a terrible person, but at least his reach is limited to the county he is sheriff of.

If you recall him, he shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine. Fundie martyr, Fox News "contributor", founder of a "Bartertown"-esque dystopian gated community acting as a beacon for seditionists.

Better to consign him to his shiathole of a county, with his volunteer gestapo of "deputies" running afoul of civil liberties in an forsaken hell-hole of Arizona.
 
2013-03-07 10:22:35 PM  
The man has such a shootable face.
 
2013-03-07 10:40:57 PM  
Good luck with that.

Joe won't be going anywhere unless someone has the goods on him, and he's actually filmed taking bribes, beating a prisoner, or blowing a ladyboy in the bathroom of the Sheriff's Department. Or he skips out on his own payments to his attorneys, which is about as likely as any of the previous. Too many people have gotten favors from him, and more than a few have gotten off lightly, if even brought in for way too much to even think about getting him recalled. I despise the man, and I am a former Maricopa resident, and I just don't see it happening. The county is far too corrupt to even think about it.
 
2013-03-07 10:46:23 PM  
The problem is Sun City and Sun Lakes. Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, etc voted to remove Arpaio, but in Sun City and Sun Lakes they love him. Of course, the only Latinos those old bastards ever want to see are the ones who maintain the golf course.

Notice he didn't say anything about the fact that it wasn't in his chest, it was in his stomach after eating it just for the exam.
 
2013-03-07 10:55:58 PM  
There's a reason he's been elected sheriff for so long. Why are they even bothering with a recall?
 
2013-03-07 10:57:53 PM  

Propain_az: Hell yeah!  Let's recall a Sheriff for doing his job.


I've got $1000 that says you stated that as a person who has never even been to Arizona.

Sheriff Joe "protects" them from the Mexicans, and pisses off libs. That's all Republicans care about.

No, Holder wins that title by a long shot.

What if he gets drunk and wrecks his police car in a parking lot of a supermarket.

Oh wait, he already did that

.

Funbags: He may be a terrible person, but at least his reach is limited to the county he is sheriff of.


The only problem with that is it's where almost anyone who lives in AZ actually lives...except for all those bastards who maintain homes (and probably also votes) in another state.
