The Video of Joe Arpaio Running From Questions About Debating Dan Saban Isn't a Campaign Ad

By Niki D'Andrea

In our recent blog about mudslinging in local elections, including the Republican Party's disgraceful campaign ad about Maricopa County sheriff candidate Dan Saban, we attributed the video below to Saban's Web site and labeled it a "campaign ad."

After our post, we were told that the video is not posted on Saban's Web site. The site where the video appears in the "Media" section is www.sabanforsheriff.com/2008/ , and the site is paid for by the Dan Saban for Sheriff of Maricopa County Committee. The video itself was done by Dennis Gilman and shot by Adolfo Maldonado and is not a campaign ad for Saban.
