Joe Arpaio Foes George Gascon, Rebecca Jimenez, and More at CBA Forum

Here's one place you can be certain not to run into Sheriff Joe Arpaio this Thursday night: At a forum on his multifarious abuses of power, sponsored by Citizens for a Better Arizona, the group responsible for making the recall of disgraced, ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce a reality.

The last CBA forum in April, moderated by the classy Julie Erfle of Politics Uncuffed, featured former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard, former Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley, former U.S. Attorney Paul Charlton, and former Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon. 

Thursday's forum will again be moderated by Erfle, and boasts a star lineup of those who've fought Arpaio in one way or another. 

These include: Former Mesa Police Chief and current District Attorney of San Francisco George Gascon, former Mayor of Guadalupe Rebecca Jimenez, Sergeant Thomas Lovejoy of the Chandler Police Department, and Susan Schuerman, Deputy Administrator for Maricopa County Supervisor Don Stapley.
