Mary Boettcher, a nearly 80-year-old Republican, used to support Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio back in the 90s. These days, she's among the first to sign a recall petition in hopes of booting him from office.

A campaign to recall Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is under way, with the penning of the first of the 335,000 signatures needed for an election to take place in November.

William James Fisher, a local attorney, is the chairman of Respect Arizona, a political action committee formed to oust the sheriff.
