Joe Arpaio Plans to Make Publicity Stunt Out of Swearing-In Ceremony, Promises "Hollywood Celebrities"
This may be incredibly hard to believe, but Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has planned a publicity stunt.
Yes, the man who dresses inmates in pink underwear, has provided those inmates with an Elvis impersonator, has allowed female inmates to throw panties in the jail, holds inmate coloring contests, and props up a completely bogus "investigation" into the president's birth certificate has planned a publicity stunt.

Because Maricopa County voters somehow thought it would be a good idea to elect 80-year-old Arpaio yet again, he's having swearing-in ceremony today, and MCSO promises "Hollywood celebrities."
The only two "Hollywood celebrities" we could possibly imagine showing up today would be Ted Nugent or Steven Seagal, both of whom hardly qualify as "celebrities."
Since we'll have to wait a few hours to find out who these "Hollywood celebrities" are, we'll offer our best guesses, in case it's not one of the two aforementioned bozos:
- Ron Jeremy
- Andy Dick
- Macaulay Culkin
- Danny Bonaduce
- Gary Busey
- Jose Canseco
- Dennis Rodman
Actually, those guys would probably make a kick-ass party.
Anyway, Arpaio's wife, Ava, is going to head up the swearing-in ceremony
, followed by a six-hour checkers match, a few episodes of Matlock, a few naps, and Jell-O delivered to the room.
"A number of local dignitaries" will also be in attendance, according to MCSO.
