Outlaw Joe

In fact, the report was locked up in an MCSO desk drawer for another few weeks before it was finally sent down to Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik in late June. Dupnik, after consulting with the Arizona Attorney General's Office, quickly dropped the case because the statute of limitations had expired.

"To this day, I have no copy of the police report," Saban tells me.

Neither do I.

The slimy and possibly illegal action by Arpaio's threat squad has cost Saban more than $8,000 in legal and private investigation fees.

There's no doubt that Outlaw Joe should be removed from office. And there is only one way to guarantee that happens.

It's time for voters to use guerrilla tactics, and thanks to a nifty Internet site, there's a simple and easy way for Democrats to register as Republicans in the upcoming primary.

Go to and scroll down to the "Voter Registration" icon. Click on it and follow the prompts. In five minutes, you're a temporary Republican.

Registration must be completed by August 9 to vote in the September 7 primary. Immediately after the primary, log back on and reregister with your preferred party for the November general election.

Independent voters are already eligible to vote in the primary by simply requesting a Republican ballot.

If enough of you anti-Arpaio voters register temporarily as Republicans and Independents, what has been impossible in past election years can actually happen. Come on, for starters, there are hundreds of thousands of you who have spent time in his hellhole county jails!

What I'm suggesting is that you have the power to kick evil, old Joe Arpaio out of office.

That, my friends, would be a great day for democracy in the Valley of the Sun.
