John Philip Sousa IV runs an independent-expenditure committee called "Americans for Sheriff Joe."
Sousa and his committee have started running TV ads on Fox News, and those ads are absolutely awful.
Aside from the camera shaking like a scene out of Cloverfield, it's mostly just Sousa rambling on -- loud background noises optional -- and at one point claiming he's crossing the border between Mexico and the United States "to demonstrate how easy it is for illegals to cross."
Arpaio has nothing to do with the ads or the committee, but he probably should, because they're just horrendous.
