Re: Sheriff Joe’s Birther Posse


Kevin: Arpaio’s birther foolishness is only the latest sheriff malfunction in Arizona. Last month we got to see Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu’s half-naked photos sent to his Mexican-immigrant boyfriend, and a year ago Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik leapt to blame the Giffords shooting on his own state being “the mecca for prejudice and bigotry.” Maybe it’s the water, or lack thereof.

On the other hand, Cochise County at least has Sheriff Larry Dever, who’s not a showboater or political opportunist.
