Neo-Nazi Who Advocated Border Landmines Launches Run For Sheriff in Arizona

Neo-Nazi Who Advocated Border Landmines Launches Run For Sheriff in Arizona
Nick R. Martin January 24, 2012, 7:13 AM


Two years ago, he was calling for landmines to be used to stop immigrants from illegally crossing into the US from Mexico. Now, a well known Arizona neo-Nazi wants to be in charge of law enforcement in a vast swath of desert south of Phoenix.

JT Ready filed notice with elections officials in Pinal County, Ariz. last week, saying he is exploring a run for sheriff and plans to collect signatures to get on the 2012 ballot. The office is currently held by rising Republican star Paul Babeu, one of the nation’s leading border hawks. Babeu is leaving the job to run for Congress this year.

“The citizens of Pinal County are under constant threat of encountering the horrific reality of terrible violence associated with illegal immigration,” Ready wrote on his campaign website. “JT is, unquestionably, the common sense choice for sheriff when the public needs safety and security now more than ever.”

Ready is a longtime Republican and onetime precinct leader in the Arizona GOP. But elections records show he switched parties Jan. 13 and plans to run as a Democrat.
