Prediction Poll: How Will Joe Arpaio Leave Office?
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will not be recalled from office. At least, not anytime soon.
Respect Arizona didn't reveal how many petition signatures they gathered in their recall effort after the clock ran out last week, and Arpaio tried to claim that the group didn't reveal the number of signatures due to being "embarrassed by the level of their failure."
Respect Arizona didn't turn over the signatures to the county, knowing it didn't have the more than 330,000 signatures needed, since our colleague Stephen Lemons reported that a county official said it would cost about $1.5 million to verify the signatures. Not surprisingly, this concept of being judicious with taxpayer money is a point lost on the elderly Sheriff.
With this recall effort failing, though, we want your predictions on how Arpaio will be leaving office, considering a few factors, like his old age, his recent medical issues, and thorough history of mismanagement, among other things.
