The U.S. Attorney's Office announced on Friday evening on that charges would not be filed against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio or former County Attorney Andrew Thomas.
The list of Arpaio's dirty deeds goes on and on (and on, and on), but the U.S. Attorney's Office apparently is claiming that there was no criminal behavior to be found.
The feds are even avoiding questions about the investigation, as the Feathered Bastard got an auto-reply response from the U.S. Attorney's Office spokesman saying he'll immediately respond to any questions --that aren't related to the Arpaio investigation.
We're not sure whether this whole thing is mind-boggling, depressing, or just downright embarrassing, but is it safe to say the feds screwed the pooch on this one?
