A copy of Barack Obama's birth certificate
Proof that Joe Apraio is a dick
Is it any wonder this doofus oversees a county that has the highest crime rate of any other county in Arizona? While crime is decreasing along the Mexican border that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is so bent on "securing," violent crime in his own goddamn county is increasing and sometimes ignored.

While other sheriffs are tracking down rapists, Sheriff Joe Arpaio sends his deputies to arrest Mexican burger flippers rather than prosecute more than 400 known sex crimes.

While other sheriffs are investigating fraud, Sheriff Joe Apraio is himself committing fraud, misspending more than $100,000,000 for his boy toys.

While other sheriffs are arresting murderers, Sheriff Joe Arpaio's deputies are killing people in their custody who have not been accused of anything.

While other sheriffs are prosecuting white collar crime, Sheriff Joe Apraio is filing frivolous lawsuits against his political enemies—police state practices that result in the firing and debarment of the county's attorney, an Arpaio flunky.

While other sheriffs are focused on protecting, representing, and serving the citizens of their county, Sheriff Joe Arpaio continues his investigation of President Obama's birth certificate. Because, you know, that's in the job description of a county sheriff from Arizona.

So, if you thought we've seen the end of Arpaio's birther clown show, another one of the Sheriff's schemes to get his mug on the national news, then think again, because his man is still on the case, and he recently promised a rightwing radio audience new evidence that'll blow the lid off of Obama's cover.

"The evidence that we have acquired—new-found evidence that we have never made public at any point in time, and we are not going to make public until we have the right opportunity—will convince even the greatest skeptic that this document is 100 percent a forgery."
Of course, Arpaio promised "ironclad" fireworks last year in the almost daily teasers to his highly anticipated press conference, which turned out to be a long-winded recyling of Orly Taitz buffoonery—with PowerPoints!

Here we go again with Socialist Kenyan Muslim, Part III.

Please don't say, "Hey, you elected this goon." Last election Joe Arpaio received very little support from the urban and older districts of Phoenix and other cities. His support in suburban GOP communities like Scottsdale is even dwindling. Arpaio's votes predominantly come from retirement communities like Sun City, LeisureWorld, Sun Lakes, and other mostly white and mostly Republican enclaves. When he wants to announce a new policy and get his ass kissed, that's where he goes.

These shuffleboard utopias are huge and powerful. Heaven help you if your school district includes a retirement village, because you can kiss bond elections and budget overrides goodbye. They will literally bus people to the polls to vote no, with the lame excuse, "I put my kid through school in Ohio, why should I pay here?" Hey, assface, who put you through school? Probably someone you didn't know. Or perhaps a couple without children. (I'm a senior citizen myself, without kids.)

In modern history Arizona has always been Latino and it has always been Indigenous. Most Arizonans celebrate that unique cultural heritage. If you don't like brown people, stay the fuck in Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, or whatever frigid-ass place you call home (because they still do, Arizona is not "home"). Sure, we have our share of homegrown racist goobers, but last November Arpaio barely received 50 percent of the vote, and without Sun City he would not be Sheriff.

And we wouldn't be suffering through this birther nonsense while real crime goes unchecked. It was, don't forget, a bunch of old, white tea party nitwits who asked the Sheriff to look into Obama's birth certificate, and being the loyal servant that he is, Arpaio could not refuse them.

Unlike the parents in the largely Hispanic community of El Mirage, who asked Sheriff Arpaio to look into the rapes of their children, some as young as two years old. He couldn't find time for them.

But expect another announcement soon about the President's fake birth certificate.

UDPATE: This welcome news broke this morning:

Members of the coalition that recalled former Senate President Russell Pearce are setting their sights on a bigger prize – Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Activist Randy Parraz of Citizens for a Better Arizona, the committee that spearheaded the 2011 Pearce recall, said Arpaio opponents are preparing to launch a new effort aimed at the long-serving Maricopa County sheriff. Parraz said the new committee, Respect Arizona, will likely be filed today. Arizona Capitol Times

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
