Posted on 09/01/2012 5:31:38 AM PDT by iontheball
Its finally over. The 3-year, disgraceful witch-hunt of Sheriff Joe Arpaio by the Obama Department of Injustice was dropped tonight, with absolutely no charges to be filed in the matter.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann Birmingham Scheel released a statement saying her office is closing its investigation into allegations of criminal conduct by current and former members of the sheriffs and county attorneys offices.
Scheel didnt elaborate, saying only that County Attorney Bill Montgomery was advised of the decision not to pursue state criminal charges related to the investigation. Scheel, who is based in Arizona, said she was acting on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Wow! Great catch! I wonder how long it will be before the MSM stops referring to “the ongoing investigation ?”
Has Hussein dropped the LAWSUIT against Joe?
How much money has Obama wasted?
All of it.
“O” is looking for votes in Arizona. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is loved by the law abiding in that state. they will continue to vote him back into office as long as he is breathing.
Bingo. It's all about the vote.
“Arpaio, youll recall, is the guy who claims that Barack Obamas birth certificate is a forgery, who calls for the arrest and deportation of millions of illegal immigrants, who is being sued for racial profiling, and who has been an outspoken champion of the Arizona immigration crackdown largely invalidated by the Supreme Court.” Dana Milbank’s column today: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/dana-milbank-the-gops-dangerous-animals/2012/08/31/0cb34f9a-f389-11e1-adc6-87dfa8eff430_story.html
How much did it cost Sheriff Joe to defend himself against groundless charges brought by the most evil administration in the history of the world?
I love the smell of success in the morning.....it smells like victory!!!
well i hope they make much of how Obama administration has dogged him.
I stand with Sheriff Joe, Governor Jan, and ARIZONA!!!!
And I stand with Gabriela Saucedo Mercer against the TRAITOR Raúl Grijalva, who supported the boycott of his own State over its immigration law!!! I also stand with OUR (Republican) Gabby against the “Middle Easterners” (muslim terrorists and subversives) who are sneaking across our southern border to do us harm!!!!
Now that horrible TRAITOR is using the old “hate speech” scam to smear Gabby. PHOOEY to him!!!! Let him go back to Mexico!!!!
The media is not interested in how much money Obama’s wastes. The media is interested in destroying anyone who questions Obama’s bad decisions.
Ever since the SB1070 controversy erupted, I have sported an Arizona State Flag decal on the back of my truck and SUV. It will definitely shine a little brighter today in Florida.
My gut feeling is they uncovered something that was not wrongdoing but rather was something that would make the Justice Department and the administration look bad. Otherwise they had no reason to drop the investigation.
Was a deal cut?

If you’re going to try to intimidate someone and he calls your bluff, then putting your tail between your legs is the only option left.
This was covered extensively on Univision and Telemundo news.
He is not out of the woods yet: Federal investigators cleared controversial Sheriff Arpaio’s office of criminal wrongdoing regarding allegations of financial improprieties involving claims of abuse of county credit cards, misuse of funds and other financial matters. That investigation was separate from a federal civil rights lawsuit accusing Arpaio’s office of racial profiling.
That case does not even have a judge assigned yet. It will likely take another 3 years and be dismissed, unless Romney is elected.
One can only hope. I sometimes think they move so slowly just to extend their ability to torment him.
“How much did it cost Sheriff Joe to defend himself against groundless charges brought by the most evil administration in the history of the world?”
Plenty and it isn’t over yet. They’re still working on Federal lawsuits over civil rights violations. Yes, they made that up too, but it’s easier to fake that with false witnesses... They can probably just buy more as each story falls through.

More importantly, have they reestablished law enforcement cooperation and access to the federal immigrant databases?
Remember, they yanked that at the very beginning of their investigation...
Wonder if Sheriff Joe Arpaio has some information on Obama and Obama wants to make a deal?.
Cook county never gets to far from Obama.
That was my very first thought. We drop our charges against you, if you drop all this birther stuff....oh, and here's some of all this money we have... for you, your family, and your department.
Hmmmm. I wonder?
