Respect Arizona, the group spearheading the recall of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, is suspending its paid signature-gathering campaign due to lacks of funds.
Lilia Alvarez, Respect Arizona's campaign manager, explained that the group does not have the money to continue paying Sign Here Petitions for professional canvassers.
The volunteer campaign will continue, she said, and she claimed to believe that the recall will reach its goal of more than 335,000 valid signatures by May 30.
"People need to take this as a wake-up call," Alvarez told me, "and take responsibility for the effort in order to get this done."
