PHOENIX (AP) The federal abuse-of-power investigation into America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff may have been closed without criminal charges but Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's legal troubles are far from over.
A civil case brought by a small group of Latinos who accuse Arpaio's office of systematically racially profiling is awaiting a verdict from an Arizona-based federal judge.
The U.S. Department of Justice has also sued the sheriff for alleged constitutional violations including racial profiling, retaliating against Arpaio critics, punishing Latino jail inmates with limited English skills for speaking Spanish and failing to adequately investigate a large number of sex-crimes cases. No trial date in that case has been set.

Oh yes it is. Beating a dead horse never worked for anybody.
When it comes to usurping the law in the name of liberal politics never underestimate the powers of a ‘federal judge’.
I agree. They’ll probably shop for some “federal judge” that will come up with something.
the left will hound him forever
Arpaio should pull an Eastwood and tell them to “make his day.”
The left never gives up. Like the muslims, any break is just a hudna. If the law can’t be used, they change the law.
For example: I’ve been following the backroom discussions on getting Geert Wilders brought down for something, anything. Pure criminal and deadly enterprise.
The last I heard about this case is that Arpaio filed to dismiss the case because of frivolity (no real evidence), and a non-jural entity that cannot be sued.
The left is still after Sheriff Joe.
A Mexican Navy Seal.
The Commies have No Funny Bone! Poor sots.
Wouldn’t it be great if Sheriff Joe replaced Holder at the Justice Department when Romney wins in November? I would think Sheriff Joe is the last person the corrupt rats want dishing out justice for the American people. He definitely has my vote.
Make him Director of the FBI. It would be like J. Edger Hoover was running the FBI again.
Is Sheriff Joe gay?
They always say no question is stupid....so, um,
No! He’s as straight as an arrow.
Sheriff Joe as head of Homeland Security
Just make him head of ICE, that way he’ll have fewer distractions.
No, but I’ll just bet YOU have dreams of him being deep in your....imagination.
He doesn’t have legitimate legal problems.
He does have problems with a fanatical leftist government tyrant trying to intimidate him.
