Arizona Daily Star ^

Posted on 05/31/2013 5:06:15 AM PDT by SandRat

The Sheriff Arapio Haters came up short of recall signatures. This an AP story so by FR rules I can't say more than HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-

This line right under headline is rich...”Group won’t say how many signatures it lacked”

Excellent!

Under a fresh, new, right-wing Conservative administration Sheriff Joe would make a marvelous Attorney General.

His November re-election race marked the second-closest contest in his 20-year political career. He beat the closest candidate by 6 percentage points.

Gotta love the propogandizing AP. Do you suppose they would ever mention that Barky won re-election by less than 4 percentage points over the closest candidate?

Assuming there was Holder-style interference in the campaign, that means he probably won by 16 points.

”Group won’t say how many signatures it lacked”

The recall petition is a public record so the election board should have that figure. Can't the AP figure that one out??!!

FR - doing the work that the AP won't do.

I don’t think they turned in their signed petitions — they had not yet started being counted and verified.

We’ve seen the recall people at a couple different events trying to collect signatures. Mostly, they were ignored. We saw almost no one signing, so this news doesn’t surprise me at all.

I’m not a fan of Joe Arpaio, due to personal interactions we have had with Arpaio and his deputies. That’s part of why we no longer live in Maricopa County. However, I do agree with several of his stances on big issues and he was elected “fair and square”. I’m very happy the recall effort failed.

Don’t you have to be an attorney to be Attorney General?

Head of FBI might work.

They didn’t run out of money. LaRaza and Soros sponsored.

Take the petition signatures, match them to actual voter rolls, find discrepancies and arrest them.

So...do we know which national group was behind this effort? Was this an inside-the-beltway operation?

Maybe Joe will do it and round up a bunch of SB1070 violators: "Increasing the POPULATION of Joe's Desert Tent City Jail."

It would be highly embarrassing for them to say how many they were short. I have had enough petition drives, I know.

“The count at this point doesn’t matter,” Alvarez said in declining to reveal the number of signatures gathered.

Sounds like Hillary.

I would have loved to set up a table alongside of them saying “Sign the Arapio recall petition - and - sign up to get off of welfare.”

I doubt that I would have gotten any signers, but it would have made a point.

Then again, I might have been in trampled if the sign was misread as “sign ON to welfare”.

Local news here in Dallas did a puff piece on an Illegal Woman here who admits to swimming
across the river 20-years ago. She was complaining that her $250 a month isn't enough to feed her
Seven Children! And the story commentator outlined that she DESERVED Free housing, Food, Cash,
and Medical. And after thirty days she had only $9 left to feed her children with.

I tried to understand what the story was about and realized it was about telling Taxpayers
so basically go Screw themselves because illegals deserved their money along with their anchor babies.

This an AP story so by FR rules I can't say more than HA-HA-HA-H

Last I heard, AP stories could be posted. Use a SHORT excerpt, no more than 100 words.

FWIW, I have posted AP stories w/out a problem.
