The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is asking the Board of Supervisors for $7 million to cover the costs of legal fees.Most of the legal fees that Arpaio wants the county supes to pay were incurred during Arpaio's fights with the supes themselves. In short, he wants the supes to fund his harassment of the supes.
Chief Deputy David Hendershott wants the board to transfer the $7 million from the county's general fund to the Sheriff's Office general fund early next year, according to an agenda item obtained by The Republic.
The money would help pay for legal fees the Sheriff's Office incurred from three law firms: Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak and Stewart; Sanders and Parks; and Wilenchik and Bartness.
Welcome to Maricopa County folks.
