Joe Arpaio, controversial sheriff pardoned by Trump, enters Arizona Senate race

Quote

 

Washington (CNN)Joe Arpaio, the Republican former Maricopa County sheriff known for his hard-line immigration tactics, says he's running for Senate.

"I have a lot to offer. I'm a big supporter of President Trump," Arpaio told the Washington Examiner in an interview kicking off his campaign. "I'm going to have to work hard; you don't take anything for granted. But I would not being doing this if I thought that I could not win. I'm not here to get my name in the paper, I get that every day, anyway."
Arpaio was defeated in the 2016 election after 24 years in office as sheriff. He was convicted last year of criminal contempt for defying a court order to stop racially profiling Latinos but was pardoned by President Donald Trump, whose presidential campaign Arpaio had supported, in August before serving any jail time.

Does the GOP have some sort of prerequisite that their candidates for US senator emanate from the gutter??

Is there any truth in the rumor that, if elected, he will automatically be given the chair for the Corrupt and Deplorable Politician Caucus?

He'll need a chair alright...he'll be turning 86 in June.

So Joe enforces federal immigration laws and gets arrested for it but states break federal drug laws and nothing happens to them? The federal government is not above their own laws. They can't pick and choose which ones to enforce. Go Joe!

He's a criminal who had to be pardoned to avoid jailtime. Sheriffs who properly enforce laws do not get convicted of felonies.

So let the voters of Arizona decide if he's guilty of something just like the recent Alabama election. Juries and judges don't always get the verdict right.

I say let the people who live on the Arizona border decide whether or not Joe is a criminal who is not fit to represent their interests.

Oh for God’s sake. That’s the way it works in this country. A court of law determines guilt, not voters. Why do you not respect he Constitution?

I didn't think felons could run for Congress? Or is criminal contempt not a felony?
