At 88, Joe Arpaio is at it again.
He was Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona’s largest county by population, for 24 years.
Joe always described himself as “America’s Toughest Sheriff.” You can read all about him at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Arpaio.
Because of Arpaio’s high-profile and always obvious contempt for immigrants (both legal and illegal), and because he’s a Birther just like Donald Trump, Trump pardoned him after he was convicted of criminal contempt of court.
He was easily defeated for re-election by Democrat Paul Penzone in 2016, but a year ago, he announced that he’s running for his job again.
So we immediately reached out to associate solitary reporter Jim Millard, a longtime political observer in Tucson, to give us the full scoop.
“Arpaio’s just another Donald Trump, only a little older, but if Joe can’t be near a microphone, he collapses into a deep depression.”
“Expect Trump to campaign all-out for Arpaio in September,” Millard continued, “and for Martha McSally to keep her seat in the U S Senate, but McSally’s gonna lose big time to Democrat Mark Kelly, the astronaut who’s married to Gabby Giffords."
