An examination in Arizona’s Maricopa County has found that the sheriff’s office, widely known for efforts against illegal immigrants, inappropriately spent $99 million from two jail funds over the last eight years to pay for other law enforcement operations — including immigration patrols.Hmmm...it seems that calling the sheriff to investigate this case would be like calling the fox to investigate a missing hen.
The $99 million figure released Wednesday is an update to an estimate made in September by budget officials who said the sheriff’s office was believed to have used $60 million and $80 million over four or five years from a jail tax on other purposes. Since then, officials said they discovered that the sheriff’s office had inappropriately spent money from a second jail account.
...On second thought, at $100 million, it's more like calling the fox to investigate a missing hen house.
...Actually, on third thought, at that price, make that "the missing hen house at the Taj Mahal".
