If Arpaio knows about anything, this is it

From -
Today the House Judiciary subcommittee on immigration, citizenship, refugees, border security and international law and the subcommittee on the Constitution, civil rights and civil liberties are scheduled to hold a hearing on "the public-safety and civil-rights implications of state and local enforcement of federal immigration laws."

Sheriff Joe Arpaio has a shorter description for what's going on in Washington.

"It's all a publicity stunt," he told me Wednesday. "A witch hunt."

As he is Maricopa County's resident expert on the subject of witch hunts as publicity stunts, he should know of what he speaks.

I guess that's why he's lost court judgements over the years forcing the rest of us to pay millions of dollars in damages. Which is taxpayer money that everyone in the state pays, even those of us who live in counties whose sheriffs manage to avoid being sued all the time.
