Arpaio, Thomas Drop Racketeering Suit
Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas and Sheriff Joe Arpaio have filed a motion to dismiss the federal racketeering lawsuit they filed against the Board of Supervisors in December.

In the motion, Thomas says the Justice Department has agreed to investigate the Board of Supervisors for misconduct.

Arpaio and Thomas used a lot of financial and human resources to bring yet more cases that they have now dropped. That might indicate something about their malicious motivations to intimidate those who dare question them. They weren't enforcing the law, because if they had been they would have investigated enough to ensure they had a very good case, and wouldn't have been so quick to drop it.

Their house of cards is starting to crumble. This is what it takes, evidently, to get the public to look beyond political rhetoric and examine the facts. How many people have suffered and been denied justice in the meantime?

The Board of Supervisors is arguably not great at discharging their responsibilities with integrity, but they don't enforce the law or adjudicate violations. So don't blame them- let the wrongdoers take responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Isn't that what Arpaio and Thomas claim to want (for every other lawbreaker)?

I think it is interesting to see Arpaio and Thomas deal with their impending political doom.

They referred the cases to the feds because they knew they were losing AND because, when the whole thing doesn't go anywhere, they can and will blame the "liberals" in the Obama government. If they were honest, which they are not, they would own up to the fact that they screwed up and shouldn't have become involved in this mess in the first place. They won't becaues of their egos and because one wouldn't expect power hungry twits like these to do anything else.

I trust that you are making a point that a fake, dead, bunch of 1915 era bumbling phony cops equipped with phony technology from that era could out-perform MCSO in many areas. That actually has been proved by the county's citizenry acting on their own many times. That is not recommended in any jurisdiction. But there's little choice when the response times of MCSO are so ridiculously lengthy in many parts of the county so that they can deploy their limited manpower in activities that have the biggest marketing value. So your point is a valid one.

Dozens of People Found at W. Phoenix Home

PHOENIX - The Maricopa County sheriff's office uncovered a drop house Friday in west Phoenix where deputies arrested four human smugglers and found 36 immigrants held hostage in deplorable conditions.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio said a tip led investigators to a house near 59th Avenue and Osborn Road, close to Maryvale High School.

The 36 people were held hostage in a small boarded-up bedroom for several days and were not in good condition, Arpaio said.

"We rescued them," Arpaio said. "They are all, right now, we feel illegal. We are still in the process of questioning them."

The sheriff said the smugglers also called the hostages' family members across the nation and told them they would kill the hostages if the relatives failed to send money. Smugglers often charge their human cargo thousands of dollars to be brought to the United States.

Television reports Friday morning showed several people sitting on a curb, restrained with plastic handcuffs, as sheriff's office SWAT team members swarmed around the house.

The sheriff said the case remains under investigation and may lead to other smugglers and drop house locations.

Meanwhile, Arpaio said he plans to move up a planned crime suppression operation, which focuses deputies in a specific area.

The sheriff would not say where the sweep would take place, only that it was imminent.

"When the time comes, "we will publicize it so that we give all the activists time to get their cameras and surveillance teams out to follow us around to see if we do racial profiling," he said.

Arpaio said that since the beginning of the year, nearly 300 smugglers have been arrested, which is double the number arrested last year.

Other law enforcement agencies are doing their job. Yet others are busting drop houses, and sometimes MCSO does that too. That's supposed to excuse everything else?

This is an interesting development, to say the least. I was contemplating "why" Joke and Candy would drop the case and hand it off to the DOJ. I was mulling over the possibility that the intent was to be able to holler "conflict of interest" in the matter of the DOJ investigating Joke and Candy.

I find it incredibily funny that the DOJ came back with an immediate reprimand and EXTREMELY DISTRUBRING that this non-Maricopa County (high priced DC) lawyer was being paid by our tax dollars to use his "influential conections" with the Public Integrity Section of the Department of Justice and then use the fact that he turned over the file as a basis for holding a press conference saying that the Department of Justice is now working the case on behalf of Joke and Andy.

All you Joke and Candy fans need to OPEN YOUR EYES. Read the letter that the DOJ sent to Driscoll. Remember, this is the DC lawyer that Joke and Andy agreed to spend nearly $1000 PER HOUR to prosecute Wilcox and Stapley. $1000 PER HOUR people. Why? Because our County Attorney is too incompetent to handle the matter in his own office.

This is grossly outrageous behavior on the part of our MCSO and MCAO and heads need to roll. How you can sit back with your blinders on and keep yelling "round up dem illegals, Joe! We love you!"

To you courageous "Anonymous" posters who think the media is lying and brainwashing, please view videos of Joke, a couple of which are posted above. Read the letter that Driscoll received from the Department of Justice. The link is on the home page. Go watch the video of Joke being deposed back in January where he blumbles his way through the questions by saying he doesn't know anything about anything. Watch him on camera say "You know what it is? It's this civil rights stuff - all that crap." Yes, hear your hero say your civil rights are crap. It's not about being a "progressive" or a "leftist" or and "illegal lover" or a "former tent city resident" as all of you Joe sheep want to keep claiming as an excuse for having no defense for what is going on in the MCSO and MCAO.

You can argue with opinion, but you can't argue with fact. Fact is in the videos and the copies of official documents. It will be interesting to see what facts are uncovered in the emails that Joke and Henderschot and all the corrupt personnel involved in the "destruction" of evidence when the DOJ is done reading them. Just glad that the back up tapes existed so that Joe's attempts to cover up the truth about the workings of the MCSO were unsuccessful.

Joe's PR spokesperson, Lisa Allen, once said "Educated people don't vote for Joe. Have you ever seen the video where Joe said that illegals get their corn from drop houses? There is a culture of unsophistication that surrounds Joe. He lacks the ability to think on his feet and speak intelligently and articulately. He can't even pronounce his title correctly. (It's sher-iff, not shurf, Joe!) He frequently says he doesn't know the answer to things that clearly he should know - like the contents of his own book "Joe's Law". When asked a direct question, like "how much of our taxpayer's money did you pay Driscoll" he dodges the question by saying that the Department of Justice has billions of dollars. See it for yourself in the link I posted above. His filmed deposition made him appear confused and without a clue as to what happens at MSCO. His primary appeal is to like-minded people with similar brain power. The rest of his appeal is to tunnel-visioned raging people who can think of absolutely nothing but illegals.

PHOENIX -- The Maricopa County Attorney's Office announced Saturday the owner of a Phoenix granite business has begun serving a six month jail sentence in an identity theft case.

Prosecutors said Raphael Libardi, 48, was arrested in July following a joint probe by the county attorney and the sheriff's office.

Authorities said Libardi, a Brazilian national who is in the U.S. illegally, began using the Social Security number of an elderly man as far back as 2002 to establish his granite business.

The victim of the ID theft died in December 2008 and the man's daughter assisted in the investigation. Libardi pleaded guilty to two counts of identity theft last October.

Prosecutors said Libardi is the first business owner to be criminally prosecuted as a result of an employer

I understand perfectly well what happened. When the man died in 2008, HIS daughter discovered the identity theft and made a report to the sheriff's department. Yes, she 'snitched him out'. It wasn't like Joke and Candy were conducting an investigation that included Libardi and found this out on their own...

"An Anthem man who was arrested as part of an employer-sanctions investigation has been indicted on charges of fraud, identity theft, forgery and auto theft after it was discovered that he was using the Social Security number of a man who died in December.

Raphael Libardi, 48, a Brazilian officials say is in the country illegally, used the stolen number to start a business and purchase a home and two vehicles.

Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas noted that it was the first time that a business owner had been charged after an employer-sanctions raid. But Thomas said that no actual employer-sanctions case can be made against Libardi for knowingly and willingly hiring illegal immigrants."

(Now, pay attention here, Simms:)

"According to court documents, the Sheriff's Office received a tip in March that Libardi had fraudulent documents."

Most of you are apparently left wing as is this blog. The facts are that Mr. Arpaio has done very little to curb the flow of illegals in Maricopa County, so why all the ruckus. You basically hate Mr. Arpaio because he doesn't share your views. There is absolutely no concrete evidence that Mr. Arpaio or the County Attorney has done anything illegal, so sit back in your chair and contemplate why our state is in such a mess....could it be due to laws you are supporting?

I am truly sorry you lost your business. I have no love for illegals. You can believe in that. I have been supporting my daughter who has been unemployed for more than 2 years because of the illegals here in Maricopa County.

You can follow my posts for the last couple of years (not that you would care to do so, most likely) and find that I rarely make posts about Joe's illegal immigration enforcement efforts, except to say that, while he likes to take a lot of credit, he is basically ineffective and any reduction in the illegal population in Maricopa County is due more to the poor economy than the illegals being afraid of Joe. I also post a "Go Phoenix PD" or "Go DPS" when a story about them nailing a large number of illegals hits the news.

No, I don't hate Arpaio because he doesn't share my views.

The DOJ Federal Grand Jury investigation will result in one of two things. The Feds will walk away and say Joke and Candy have done nothing wrong, or they will indict.

If there is no concrete evidence that Joke and Candy have done anything wrong, they will walk. However, it strikes me as very odd that the attorney they hired to take over the RICO / court tower case claimed to have a "connection" with the DOJ and the DOJ immediately sent a strongly worded letter of reprimand to that attorney, Driscoll, the DAY AFTER a poorly put-together press conference was held where our sheriff and county attorney looked into the camera and made false statements about the Department of Justice taking over the case.

Only people who refuse to look at the videos and official documents that have been posted all over the internet continue to believe that there is no evidence against them.

What about the email that "Ooops we deleted them - forgot to tell our employees to keep them" and have now turned up on back up tapes? Why did Joke send an "IT Consultant Turned MCSO Commander" to try to get those tapes? What is in those emails? I don't know, but it must be very telling for Joke to want to get his hands on them so bad.

If you want to know why I oppose Joe Arpaio and Andy Thomas and David Henderschott and Lisa Allen and Barney Lotstein and Joel Fox and a whole lot of other players the way I do, ask me. Don't post "you basically hate Mr. Arpaio because he doesn't share your views". You have NO IDEA why I oppose them, and I am offended by your assumptions.

I can go on and on and on about the mis-deeds and mis-steps of these clowns if you want me to. All you need to do is ask instead of assume.

It has nothing to do with sharing "views".

Here's one thing I really hate about Arpaio and Thomas. They waste my tax dollars that should be spent on police, firefighters and education. You will probably have to copy and paste the link into your browser, but the effort is worth it.

Notice how when he is asked about why he is hiring this DC attorney when our budget is so tight, Joe quips that "I didn't get a raise out of this". The reporter says "that's not what I asked. I asked why you're spending Maricopa County taxpayer money on outside council when our budget is what it is" the Joke responds with "The Department of Justice has billions of dollars."

To those who are not blind sheep this means that subversive cartoon sleeper cells will be activated, bringing law enforcement to its knees unless Arpaio and Thomas intervene to foil their evil conspiracy.

You can laugh now, but when you can no longer hear high-pitched endless loops of songs you hate; meant to psychologically break subversive elements of society- you will know that time has run out! They tried to tell the DOJ. All the feds wanted was an oversimplified summary of this complicated plot. Ooooh-noooooh!

Boy, some people have'nt researched or was aware of Napolitano crap, she was voted in from the illegal vote, is a progressive, anyway our country is being collapsed to have a social justice society, & she plus others are working for the higher sources to get this nonsense thru. There are web sites to show what bills polititions are trying to change, many laws that would not help the american citizen. Anyway, these polititions on the left have alot to do with what we are seeing now...destruction of country,state,humans, constitution.Don't let polititions fool you no more! That's why Joe is an upstanding politition & WITH transparency!!!!!!!!!!Nothing to hide!!!!!!

Arpaio wastes lots of money, there's no question about that if you read the publicly available information about MCSO's budget and expenditures. BUT these people who post "in his behalf" are barely literate. I don't think he'd be so stupid as to pay them. Of course, he might be paying them with stale candy corn he seized under RICO. But I'm just a citizen- I could be wrong.

Federal Grand Juries are not convened for no reason. Arpaio is in serious trouble. I believe it is you who will believe anything, especially when it comes out of the sheriff's fat mouth.

If you want to complain about other politicians, may I suggest you find the appropriate venue for that. This is about Arpaio and how he mis-manages MCSO, despite his copious propaganda to the contrary (which we pay for with our tax dollars).

Nobody is suggesting that others might not be corrupt. Arpaio has a pattern of very publicly investigating those (and only those) who hold him accountable. That speaks to his lack of professionalism, and his abuses of power.

There's a reason his supporters usually want to change the subject: The facts don't help Arpaio.
