Group launches Sheriff Arpaio recall effort

Source: Arizona Republic

A political group called Respect Arizona has filed paperwork with the Arizona Secretary of State’s office to launch a campaign to recall Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Randy Parraz, co-founder of Citizens for Better Arizona, said the recall effort which recently launched has not raised any money. When it does, the Respect Arizona committee will file the appropriate financial reports.

... Respect Arizona will need to collect more than 350,000 valid signatures in the next 120 days to force a recall election, according to the petition gatherers.

Arpaio was elected in November to his sixth consecutive term in office, in one of the closest races he has endured. Arpaio received nearly 680,000 votes to best his closest opponent, former Phoenix police Sgt. Paul Penzone, who finished with nearly 600,000 votes. A third candidate, former Scottsdale police Lt. Mike Stauffer, received about 62,000 votes.

2. So will I

For all the good it will do. Arizona and Maricopa county is just too racist to be believed and I don't think they will get rid of this guy until he croaks, just like Hoover.

5. Only registered voters in Maricopa County count

And if others try to sign, that will just cause problems during the inevitable signature-verification challenge that will come later.

8. those who can't sign can donate. This is the group that got Pearce recalled from senate

I researched their work and noticed that they were the group responsible for Arizona's first recall ever. That of Russell Pearce, former Deputy to Ariapo. He was a supporter of Proposition 200 and a lead sponsor of SB1070 the nations most aggressive anti-immigration bill. After Obama took them to court, most of the law was found to be unconstitutional.

12. Me too!

Damn if I get this teaching job there, he is the last person I want to have to deal with. But maybe I'm ok if I live in Tempe, I guess I would safe? Already looking at what the area is like since I want this job bigtime. Then there would be Senator McBush. Please Arizona, get that garbage out of there...and fast!!!

Arggggg!

13. Too focused on feelings and beliefs

as opposed to legitimate legal reasons why Arpaio should be recalled. Until a court or federal government official finally finds this bastard guilty of a legal offense, there is nothing that can be done to 'recall' him.

I know 'intelligent' Arizonans who still love and vote for this guy election after election. The only way I see him ever leaving office is when he dies.
