Joe Arpaio: the fraud behind the legend

​You gotta give him this: Joe Arpaio knows how to manipulate the media. Over the years he’s carefully cultivated an image as “America’s Toughest Sheriff” by forcing Maricopa County, Arizona inmates to wear pink underwear, live in tents, and eat on one dollar a day. Of course, none of this reduces crime in greater Phoenix. But it does get Arpaio a lot of ink, which is his one true love.

Now it seems the sheriff’s finally facing a national backlash. The Obama administration is reigning back his power after Arpaio was caught doing unconstitutional roundups of Latinos. And it seems others are beginning to pay attention to his long history of abuse, deceit, and illegality.

Our sister paper Phoenix New Times has been covering Arpaio for years, and you’ll be amazed by what he’s gotten away with when you read the stories here.
