Arpaio's Chief Deputy Confirms Wack Investigations of Judge's Wife, CIA, DOJ, etc.

Here's my pick for the most ridiculous quote from MCSO Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan's testimony in federal court Friday, during day-four of his and Sheriff Joe Arpaio's civil contempt trial in downtown Phoenix:

"It depends on how you define, `investigated your wife,'" said Sheridan, his face redder than a pack of Twizzlers.

Talk about a Bill Clinton moment.

Seems Sheridan doesn't believe that interviewing witnesses about statements allegedly made by federal Judge G. Murray Snow's spouse rises to the level of an "investigation."
