I reckon reasonable people can disagree. Personally, I don't think you check your civil rights at the door when you become a public servant. And if Roberts were in Wilcox's position or that of former Supervisor Don Stapley, I doubt she'd eschew damages and content herself with mere legal fees.

Anyway, Roberts backed Monty's call, writing, "I can think of one million reasons why Wilcox should not have a say in whether to appeal the Snow ruling."

Either that was a deliberate red herring or Roberts misread the law, assuming she looked it up. As stated above, Wilcox's settlement, currently drawing interest as Monty pursues his likely-to-fail appeal, does not hinge on anything that transpires in Melendres.

Should Wilcox keep quiet and let her white, male Republican colleagues on the Board of Supervisors deal with Melendres? Oh, hell, no.

Should Wilcox keep quiet and let her white, male Republican colleagues on the Board of Supervisors deal with Melendres? Oh, hell, no.

Which brings us to the editorial board's opinion piece this week, telling Wilcox to "butt out." (That's how the title read in the electronic version.)

Evidently, someone explained the law to the editorial board, because it concedes, unlike Roberts, that "legally, we believe [Wilcox] retains a right to discuss and vote on an appeal."

Yet, the Rep board still claims that she shouldn't do so because "a river of bad blood separates Wilcox and the sheriff."

That's an assertion that could be made of nearly all Latinos in Maricopa County. And the Rep comes pretty close to stating that brown folk cannot help but be biased when it comes to Arpaio.

"It is an article of faith among Wilcox's Hispanic constituents that Arpaio's 'crime-suppression sweeps' profiled them ruthlessly, and this case is the first proof of it," writes the editorial board.

Correction, ofays: Latinos in this county don't need "faith." They can rely instead on a federal judge's findings of fact. Arpaio's Hispanic-hunting sweeps did target their community, which is why the Supes' sole non-Anglo, non-male, non-Republican voice should be part of the board's discussions on Melendres.

Otherwise, a third of this county's residents effectively will be shut out of the process. When the Rep tells Wilcox to butt out, it's telling them to butt out. Ditto all those who agree with her, no matter their ethnicity, whose opinions are not echoed by those four conservative white Supes.

Wilcox has filed a claim in Superior Court seeking a declaratory judgment that will allow her to exercise her First Amendment rights without fear of arrest.

Amazing, the lengths Hispanics must go to in this racist county in order to achieve parity with their Anglo counterparts.

Everyone wants to shut Wilcox up.  She blows nothing but hot air.   Wilcox is the lone Democrat in a den of Republicans and maybe they will eat her up.

Mary Rose Wilcox should make up her own mind on how to proceed.  To take the advice of a bigoted little weasel like Monty makes no sense.  Considering all the cases Monty has fought and lost she might want to ask his advice and do the opposite...  Mary Rose Wilcox shows more of the courage and tenacity that used to characterize respected Arizona politicians like Carl Hayden or Barry Goldwater than Monty and his republican bozos in the legislature could ever muster.  Give them Hell Mary Rose, you have my respect and admiration!

Why did Arizona keep Nelson's body on ice for 7 months?  Death Oct 2012, Burial May 2013?

MCSO, Surprise AZ police and GIlbert AZ police have intimate knowledge concerning the murder/suicide of Justin M. Nelson...  ...

Glendale, AZ. 

Arpaio crony dead at 36.  Murder or suicide.  Media blackout.

Justin M. Nelson died last October with zero media coverage (not even a obituary) under very suspicious circumstances.

Nelson is the central figure in a federal case being considered by the 9th cir court of appeals in San Francisco alleging MCSO and other law enforcement corruption.  In that case Nelson is quoted  recounting his meeting with Sheriff Arpaio regarding the law enforcement targeting of activist Scott Huminski.

There was an attempted murder of Huminski in May of 2012.

Nelson was not buried until last month, 9 months after his death because of law enforcement involvement.

Now there is one dead and an attempted murder of another concerning this Arizona law enforcement case.

MontyPug, ever the loyal Arpaio lap-dog.

Apparently he's willing to risk both his political career and his law license in an attempt to muzzle MRW.

Apparently he forgot what happened to Candy Andy and the Miscreants only a year ago.

MontyPug, go back to law school. Stop embarrassing yourself and the people of Maricopa County by playing politics with this very serious issue. It's obvious you don't know what a conflict of interest is.

It really shouldn't matter if you like Mary Rose Wilcox or not. What is happening here is very wrong in any democracy.

Wilcox has built a career (and a bank account) out of expoiting conflicts of interest.

When Candy Andy had his hatchet man Dennis Willenchik order the arrest of the Voice execs, he obviously didn't expect much blowback. Perhaps Monty is laboring under the same misconception.

@JoeArpaioFan Arpaio's people certainly know how to treat a lady. Your pejorative is a shining example of the sewage that flows from that bunch.

@JAFFYDUCK. U DON'T HAVE ANY SAY ON THIS BITCH, fucking deluded moron. If U want to reconstruct something, U should reconstruct UR fucking POS life, starting with finding UR "Illegal" allien daddy, and ask him why R U such a retard. Then try to reconstruct UR mom's life, ask her why is she such a whore, pairing with an "illegal", which BTW, U hate so much. FUCKING DELUDED MORON.

...and Bozo Joe Arpaio has built his career and bank account on death, torture and violating the rights of the many.

Joe Arpaio makes Wilcox look like a saint in comparison.

@yourproductsucks Point is, she's the only supervisor who has consistently been critical of Joe over the past 6 years. There is no conflict in this case. And in the Thomas stuff, it was all thrown out. The reason why Arpaio & Thomas went after her is because she spoke out. The reason why Monty and Arpaio want her to shut up is because they don't want her speaking out.

Christ, she's outgunned 4 to 1 on the BOS. What are these crackas so worried about? That she might try to talk some sense into them?

MotherJones, Scott explains below that he is a victim of the Flaccid Failure and he has evidence the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will rule against AARPaio. He's genuine.

@yourproductsucks @MaskedMagician1967  

So? All the information you spout off and post is all coming from you alone.

So by your logic, everything you say is illegitimate as well

Then again, everyone on here already knows that about you, thanks for acknowledging it openly.

@MotherJones If you read his statement, you see his comparison other is arpaio, not kunasek.  He's justifying Wilcox's nefarious activities by comparing them to arpaio's.
