Arizona is not the best place to find anti-Arpaio news.

I haven't had a chance to read the details but from what I understand it's another damn slap on the wrist.  Will tell you more when I get a chance to read up on it.

Here's Lemons's take.  I think he's exaggerating quite a bit; again, it bears remembering that's his job.

Near as I can understand it, the only actual punishment that's been handed down so far is that Arpaio has to stop racially profiling people.

HOWEVER, the judge has also said that "Plaintiffs are entitled to injunctive relief to protect them from usurpation of rights guaranteed under the United States Constitution."  He hasn't actually mandated any yet, but I think that statement pretty strongly implies that he's going to.

Lemons has a pretty good rundown of Arpaio's history of pandering to racists.  It's worth noting that, while he was certainly an asshole from the beginning, he didn't adopt the nativist schtick until he discovered it was a useful tool for pandering.

Oh, and the recall effort didn't collect enough signatures.  That sucks, but at this point it no longer surprises me when Arpaio wriggles out of something.

Malley, 49, was arrested over the weekend for pointing a rifle at a Maricopa County sheriff's deputy he apparently mistook for a drug smuggler.

An understandable mistake.  :whoops:

I suppose it's too much to hope that is coming out of Joe's pocket, rather than the state's?

County's pocket, not the state's, but yeah. They're left holding the bag there.
