Couldn't happen to a more deserving guy

Oh, poor Joe. Poor, poor Joe. Sheriff Joe Arpaio's world is now crumbling around him. Boy, I just feel so bad for him. America's toughest sheriff, he of the tent jails and the pink underwear and the anti-immigrant rhetoric, who never met a Constitutional right he wouldn't run roughshod over, might finally, FINALLY be at the end of his reign of terror. And he just might have to pay the piper, too.

His closet allies are abandoning him. Or getting disbarred, like former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas. The lengthy diatribe opinion disbarring him concluded that there was no doubt Thomas had violated federal civil rights laws. All in service to Sheriff Joe's agenda of smearing, even jailing, his political adversaries.

Sheriff Joe's closest ally in the state legislature was recalled six months ago.

And the Department of Justice's long investigation into Sheriff Joe's practices is drawing to a close and at least some expect an indictment within the next 30 days or so.

Here's hoping! That man is a menace and has done enough damage to the Constitutional rights of the citizens of Maricopa County. He's been allowed to continue his reign of terror for about 2 decades too long already.
