"Birther" attorney Larry Klayman, who is fighting the recall of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, wants to know if the chairman of the Arpaio recall organization is a "homo" who "want[s] my nuts."
Klayman probably didn't mean to let everyone know he asked that, but it appears that Klayman isn't very good at using e-mail, which he inadvertently sent to people working for Respect Arizona.
Earlier this week, Klayman sent an e-mail to Respect Arizona chairman William James Fisher, saying yet again that a lawsuit was coming unless he ended the recall effort against Arpaio.
Fisher responded, "Mr. Klayman: Here is my reply. Nuts!"
This, from the famous WWII reply to the Germans from American General Anthony McAuliffe, which has a rough translation of, "Go to hell."
So, Klayman thought he'd "cc" a buddy on there, but also hit "reply" to Fisher, and Respect Arizona's Lilia Alvarez ended up in the "cc" field, too.

"WHAT KINDA NUTS IS TALKING ABOUT. DOES THIS HOMO WANT MY NUTS! HA. LETS GO TO WAR. BEST, L"
Although Respect Arizona sent us the e-mail chain, we called over there to make sure this was a real thing, and they assure us it is. Perhaps we have a hard time believing someone in Klayman's position could be this dumb.
That said, Respect Arizona's calling on Arpaio to denounce Klayman's comments, and we're calling on Klayman to just pack up his shit and go home, wherever that may be.
