Joe Arpaio's Memory Loss Showcased in AZ Dems' New Ad
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff," is all about holding people accountable for their actions -- so it was a little suspicious when he testified at the Arizona Bar's ethics hearing for shamed former County Attorney Andrew Thomas and couldn't remember a friggin' thing.
As we pointed out in our post on Arpaio's testimony, his answer of choice for several questions was, "I don't recall."
See our post on the sheriff's testimony here.
The Arizona Democratic Party is pouncing on Arpaio's amnesia with a new ad titled "This is America's 'Toughest Sheriff?'"
Party officials tell New Times the Dems plan to hit Arpaio hard in the coming months -- especially leading up to the GOP presidential primary, which consists of candidates who have been groveling for Joe's endorsement. So we have that to look forward to.
Meantime, see the Dems' new ad below.
