Joe Arpaio Raises Cash for Bill Hunt in Orange County, Ask A Mexican's Gustavo Arellano Dogs Arpaio

Despite horrendous mismanagement of his department, corruption, a U.S. Department of Justice investigation into his office, and a federal grand jury looking to indict his sorry self, Sheriff Joe remains popular in some quarters outside of Maricopa County. Specifically, in Southern California, where Arpaio was this Friday and Saturday, stumping for Orange County sheriff's candidate Bill Hunt.
It's one of several trips Arpaio's made to SoCal to support Hunt and San Diego County sheriff's candidate Jay LaSuer. On one occasion, he even had a photo op with well-known California nativist Barbara Coe, a shameful display of pandering to the racist fringe.
You see, Coe likes to refer to Mexicans as "savages," and is essentially the female version of our own number one bigot, state Senator Russell Pearce.
