Democrats seek DoJ probe into Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio.
I think everyone knows of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He makes prisoners wear pink outfits, live in tents and work for a living. The stories of his actions earned him a page on snopes.com. But now this hard charging sheriff has come under the gun sights of democrats running the House Judiciary Committee. Full story here.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and three fellow Democrats want the Department of Justice to investigate civil rights complaints against controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The lawmakers, in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sent Friday, are seeking a probe into reports Arpaio has used skin color as a basis to search for illegal immigrants in Arizona.
I’ve never read a bad story about Joe. I love his ideas and approach. If you haven’t heard of him then search around and tell us what you think. Here’s a picture of some of Joe’s prisoners.
Joe’s election website is linked here. Let’s give them a call or email and show our support for Joe.
