Seems like nobody told Haney that Arpaio's main problem right now isn't "libs." It's the corruption within his office that's being exposed by his own staff.
But Arpaio's name still brings money into the Party treasury and the sheriff is locking up "illegals" -- and that's clearly what counts for blindly loyal supporters like Haney.
