Joe Arpaio: The Feds Get Their Man (Or At Least Sue Him)

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

If you need any more proof that I'm not going to travel into Arizona - because brown is brown is brown (and that probably results in things I don't even want to imagine) I give you some Daily Kos:

The U.S. Justice Department sued Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Thursday, saying the Arizona lawman refused for more than a year to turn over records in an investigation into allegations his department discriminates against Hispanics. The lawsuit calls Arpaio and his office's defiance "unprecedented," and said the federal government has been trying since March 2009 to get officials to comply with its probe of alleged discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures, and jail policies that discriminate against people with limited English skills.
