Maricopa County taxpayers have spend over $178,000,000 on settlements and court order compliance in reforming former Sheriff Joe's department to date. The final bill is unknown but is expected to exceed $200 million in the next year. Sometimes, bigotry is expensive.

From a nicely written Op-Ed piece from Laurie Roberts in the Arizona Republic:

Joe Arpaio is running for office again? Call Guinness, or maybe Adult Protective Services

In response to someone asking if Sheriff Joe has always drawn pay from taxpayers. For years, Sheriff Arpaio enjoyed wide support from many, Roberts wrote.

"But after more than two decades in office and too many controversies to count, Arapio’s sheriff star lost its luster.

He hobbled out of office in 2016, crippled by controversy over his unconstitutional illegal immigration patrols and having cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.

Then he ran for the U.S. Senate in 2018 and came in last in the primary. Even in Fountain Hills, he finished a distant third behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward.

"... Then he ran for sheriff again in 2020 and lost once again in the primary.

Now, he’s running for mayor. This, just seven months after losing Ava, his wife of 63 years. This, already four months past his 89th birthday.

Presumably, he’ll be running against Mayor Ginny Dickey, who served eight years on the Town Council before becoming mayor in 2018."

Yeah man, why can't we import millions more so the Democrats can win forever?! Just open the damn border already!
Why do you assume these individuals, once properly citizens and given the right to vote, would automatically vote for Democrats?

Is it something about GOP policy positions (or in many cases, lack thereof) or just general hostility towards immigrants?
