Arpaio: I Could Lose Recall Fight   Leave a comment

The sooner the better, I say…

In a fundraising email to supporters, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said he “could lose” if faced with a recall election.

“The fight to recall me in Arizona is gaining steam and I’m afraid if we don’t fight back hard right now… I could lose,” Arpaio wrote in an email Sunday.

The AP reports that recall organizers say they’ve gathered 150,000 of the 335,000 signatures required by May 30 to bring on a recall election, despite facing fundraising difficulties.

The group, a political committee called Respect Arizona, began efforts to recall Arpaio in January 2013. HuffPost reports some leaders of Respect Arizona also helped unseat former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce in 2011.(Huffington Post)

Now, I’m normally against recalls, initiatives and referendums’ but if it takes a recall election to force Sheriff Bigot Arpaio out of office, so be it.

Pro President Obama Blog

To paraphrase President Obama's speech on 12/4/13 to the Center For American Progress: Our strength is grounded in our individuals, civic, religious and business leaders working and making things happen. But government can't stand on the sidelines; it can and should refocus our energies on building an economy that grows for everybody. I remain confident that the future still looks brighter than the past.
