The group calling itself Respect Arizona announced yesterday that it's collected and verified 120,000 signatures calling for the recall of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
With a little less than three months left in the four-month window to collect signatures, Respect Arizona has 215,317 signatures left to collect, although the organizers would like a little breathing room on top of that.
Arpaio's campaign manager Chad Willems, in a recording obtained by our colleague Stephen Lemons, explained to the Joe fanatics, "If our opposition -- [Randy] Parraz and his group -- get the money that they need for these signatures, they're going to have a candidate on that ballot, and Joe Arpaio goes away."
If Willems actually believes this, then there might be a bit of trouble in Arpaio's future.
