EPIC FAIL: Obama Admin. Drops 3-Year Witch-hunt Against Sheriff Joe Arpaio (No Charges)
Stand With Arizona Against Illegal Immigration ^ | August 31, 2012 | John Hill

Posted on 09/01/2012 5:31:38 AM PDT by iontheball

It’s 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 sheriff‘s and county attorney’s offices.

Scheel didn’t 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.

“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.

“Arpaio, you’ll recall, is the guy who claims that Barack Obama’s 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?

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.

I can't imagine them dropping the charges in an election year because even with no credible evidence to be found it keeps the idea alive in people's mind that something must have been going on.

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.

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.

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.

“Arpaio, you’ll recall, is the guy who claims has proven that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery,..."

Fixed.

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?
