Sheriff Joe Arpaio Wins Our Vote for Most Honest Comment of Primary Night

In the stop-the-presses department comes the following comment made during last night's primary election coverage.

 

was attributed to our own local Pinocchio, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, in regards the decisive victory of Bill Montgomery over interim Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley.

"That's going to make my job very easy," Arpaio said of Montgomery's win.

 

That says all you need to know about Bill Montgomery and what to expect come next January when the card-carrying sycophant presumably will assume his new position (in more ways than one).

Checks and balances inside county law enforcement?

Good old-fashioned give and take?

See ya later!
