This dastardly duck dug most of what Saban had to say, especially his promises to reopen satellite jail facilities, not renew the expensive MCSO lease on HQ offices at the Wells Fargo Bank Building, go after the 40,000 felony warrants Arpaio's ignored, and "order an immediate and detailed audit of existing finances and expenditure patterns" within the MCSO.

Of course, this worm-wrangler would've liked Saban's speechifying even better if he'd pledged to close Tent City. But heck, even Rome wasn't unbuilt in a day. This clucker ain't countin' his chicks yet, but he does believe Saban has a chance to take Joe, entrenched though our sadistic ol' sheriff may be.

Remember, Saban ran against Arpaio in the 2004 Republican primary, and ended up getting 44 percent of the vote. This despite Arpaio's smear tactics against Saban as detailed in New Times journo Paul Rubin's cover story, "Boob's Tube" (January 25, 2007). If it had not been for the smear, Saban would likely have won his party's nomination. Especially since many in the party bucked Arpaio in 2004.

Saban's since switched to the Dem column, which gives him a better chance of taking Arpaio to the woodshed, especially with Republicans and Independents able to cross over and vote for Saban's new Democratic self.

Will the sheriff slime Saban again? That would be a foolish move, one likely to backfire, much in the same way there was a backlash to the arrest of this blackbird's bosses Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin by members of the MCSO's Selective Enforcement Unit in October.

"Numbered are the days," spoke Saban, "when members of the press and our citizens need to fear having a sheriff who violates their constitutional rights to privacy and freedom of speech."

Sounds good to the winged wonder, who counts some 292 days 'til the general election, and (hope against hope) removal of Joe from office.

This fellow Arpaio apparently didn't pay overtime as required by federal law. how could he think he'd get away with it? Today it is completely normal that blue-collar workers who work overtime do not get paid time and a half for the overtime as required by law. It used to be very rare that employers cheated the employees on this. Today it is extremely common. A very large portion of the construction workers in arizona do not get paid time and a half for hours over 40, much less for saturday/sunday work. It is now routine for companies to just ignore the law. http://www.protopage.com/buy-clomid-online http://www.protopage.com/buy-diflucan-150-mg http://www.protopage.com/buy-neurontin-online http://www.protopage.com/buy-synthroid-online http://www.protopage.com/buy-electronic-cigarettes-online

Oh, I realize what happened now. I had suspected that it might be something like that; but then I kept thinking, "no, they would've caught it." But, as you said, they don't screen the comment section 24/7 and it's really sad that someone would do something like that to make another person look bad.

Sheriff Joe is an embarrasment to all of professional law enforcement. Even if there is an explaination for the issues raised by the Bird, Joe's refusal to explain the whys and hows must cause a reasonable person to suspect the very worst. Where is the FBI's Political Curruption Unit when we need it most?

If you want to be rid of Sheriff Joke, get registered and vote this fall. Complaining and badmouthing in these comments doesn't kick anybody out of office, votes do. You can even vote by mail early or vote at Elections early instead of going to the polls on election day.

Because, Obviously the person or persons Trolling in the comments and posting that filth is Not Stephen Lemons, and just some Arpaio flunky trying to distract from the fact that

A) Arpaio needs to get voted outB) Taxpayer's money is being used for Hendershott and the MCSO's trip to HondurasC) Deputies are in Honduras when they need to be in places like Aguila, Gila Bend, Sun City, Sun Lakes, and AnthemD) Money is being wasted faster by the Sheriff before the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors can even get a budget togetherE) with the recent 2 Million dollar settlement in the Brian Crenshaw case, Arpaio and the conditions of his jails has cost $43 Million.F) Dan Saban is the only person that can clean up the mess Arpaio has causedG) More than 40,000 felons roam free while Arpaio does nothing about it.

I could keep going but thats a pretty damn good start.

Evidently New Times does not screen comments for suitability. Consider instituting such a policy.
