You got that right, Jack-Off. This was a New Times baby, no matter what Channel 12 maintains. But at least 12 reporter Joe Dana's been dogging Joe's ass about the story, not licking it, like Ankarlo.

THE CONTENDERS

The Bird flew down to the Maricopa County Democratic Party's spring meeting recently to suss the Dems' two contenders for county attorney, and came away liking both catbirds for different reasons.

Janet and Joe with the Hondurans; David Hendershott is the first on the right.

Either one would be hella-better than Candy Thomas! Electing Gerald Richard would be like putting Samuel L. Jackson in the CA's office to kick some tailfeathers. A top attorney-administrator for the Phoenix Police Department, he's lately been responsible for keeping us safe during the Super Bowl, and for keeping the two sides separated during the demos at M.D. Pruitt's Home Furnishings. Richard has also worked as a former prosecutor fighting gangs, which makes him far more experienced than Thomas, who has never personally tried a felony case.

Tim Nelson was most recently Janet Napolitano's top counsel, and can brag about pulling in mucho dinero in campaign contributions from his highfalutin legal pals. Word on the street is, Nappy's already making calls on his behalf, asking folks to support him, though both he and the Guv's flack deny this. Nelson impressed the winged wonder by making pointed attacks on Thomas during his remarks, mentioning the CA's abuse of power in the New Times case (see "Blowback," Februrary 21, among other articles). He's pursued big-time white-collar criminals in court, which also gives him a leg up on Thomas.

Space prevents this sandpiper from going on at length, so check the Feathered Bastard blog for more on this pair. This year, the Dems have much to be enthused about. Thomas is hobbled by scandal, and either Nelson or Richard has the chops to wring his chicken neck.

Mr. Bird, So if i'm to understand this, "nickel-bag" has done it to me again??? He has put his grubby meat hooks in my pocket, taken my tax dollars and give it to Jaba to run amuck down south. I'm sure their teaching them the finer side of police work, like how to NOT make it out alive after a weekend in the "clink." Ahhhh, elected "officals." Where would we be them...............

now what?
now what?

I wonder if they made sure all information was erased from the computers they gave them?

Hopefuly the County Demo party will DO something for the County Atty primary winner. 4 years ago they didn't help Don Harris, the nominee---and prominent Demos like Phil Gordon endorsed Thomas. When I was the uncontested Demo nominee in 1992 (see your Oct. 1992 archived story by Dave Walker on that race), I got no help---except the formation of a "Democrats for Romley" Committee that included liberals who should have known better like my "friend" and former anti-jail crusader Dave Tierney!! In hindsight, Romley was MUCH better & fairer than Thomas---although I stand by my criticism of him over the phony Azscam sting and the belated release of the 4 INNOCENT alleged murderers of the Buddhist priests in the West Valley (via false confessions induced by Joe's predecessor, an otherwise-good-pro cop named Tom Agnos). In this Republican county, however, I will bet good $$ that Joe and Candy are re-elected, albeit by small margins. In the meantime, I will be seeking the Demo nomination again for Arcadia-Biltmore JP; incumbent Mike Orcutt is retiring and the district NOW ---for the firsdt time in 20+ years---has a Demo majority.

First is was 30 grand in RICO money, now it's 34 grand. None of which is counting the 81 grand (estimate) of county paid salaries and the over time that also needs to be added to the total costs. How convenient that Arpaio says it's only 30 grand but leaves everything else out. Typical for Arpaio, Hendershott and the Goons. They always seem to lie or leave the facts out of everything they do. What else is new.

Then it starts as 1 millions photo's, now it's 5 million....

How much does it take and how much does it have to cost Maricopa Tax Payers to see how full of shit Arpaio, Hendershott and the Goons are ? How many lies can they continue to get away with before the general public wakes up ? How many people need to die in Mmaricopa County jail ? How many more millions of dollars have to be paid out over the 44 million that has already been paid out in civil suit settlements ?

Arizona voters, got to be the dumbest voters in the world.

The Governor, The Board of Supervisors, their all a joke. Typical politics in Arizona, one lies and they all swear to it while all looking the other way.

They all need to be replaced with politicians that care about the welfare of the public and not their personal agenda�s, if that's possible at all when it comes to politicians.

Obviously none of these leaders have any ethic's or morals and could care less about being laughed at by the rest of the US. They all have made Arizona out to be nothing but a joke full of corrupt politicians.

best run City....yea right, maybe the best City run into the ground might be a better title.

Keep it up Stephen...expose all these worthless assholes for what they truly are.It's time to replace them all......

When are you damn pinko liberals going to wake up and smell the coffee? Ya bitch about all the drugs and illegals coming in but yet when someone like sherrif Joe does something to stop it before it get to our state by useing mony that was designated to stop drugs y'all try to blame him for misapropriating funds. If ya need to sell papers that bad why not go back to Cal. where the rest of your ilk are.
