Boris, I've written to you before about the effort to remove me from office, and I wanted to provide you a quick update.
A group of open borders extremists are right now paying for signatures from voters around Maricopa County in order to force a recall election against me. They have already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on this effort and it is paying off for them.
As misdirected and delusional as these people are, their efforts are gaining momentum. Just last week the local newspaper reported that they have collected well over half of the required signatures to force an election.
Their deadline is May 30th and we are now hearing that the recall organizers are going to dump $500,000 to $1 million in the closing days to pay for the remaining signatures.
Why do they want to remove me from office? It's quite simple. I have become the poster boy for the radical left because of my unwavering support and enforcement of our state and country's immigration laws.
Boris, time is running out and I need your help today.
In order for me to continue fighting for our shared values, I need your immediate support.
Your donation of $25, $50, $100 or more will ensure my campaign has the resources it needs to fight back.
Every day, they are out there lying about me personally and about my record in order to dupe voters into signing their petition.
I certainly didn't ask for this recall but you can bet I will not stand by and let a group of extremists overturn last year's election and throw me out of office.
If they are successful I'm going to have the toughest re-election campaign in my career. In fact, because of the nature of recall elections, political experts predict I could very well lose the election.
I must have the necessary resources to stop this recall effort and that's why I'm reaching out to you today. By acting now we can stop them from reaching their goal. Will you help me?
I know with your help we can stop this recall dead in its tracks. I won't back down from doing the job I was elected to do. I swore an oath to uphold, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution and no group of thugs or “community activists” will intimidate me from enforcing all of our laws.
We are now in the closing days of this fight. I hope you will make one more small sacrifice and contribute to my campaign to stop this recall today.
The stakes have never been higher. I would not ask for your help if I didn't think it was absolutely necessary to defeat these extremists.
I hope you will join me today.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Maricopa County, Arizona
P.S. Please don't delete this email. Any amount you can give today will help us stop this effort to remove me from office. I'm not going to sit idly by while these radical groups organize for my defeat. After you make a contribution, please forward this email to at least five of your friends or family members who stand with me in upholding the Rule of Law. Thank you!
Википедия: He served as a police officer in Las Vegas for six months before being appointed as a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, which later became part of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). During his 25-year tenure with the DEA, he was stationed in Argentina, Turkey and Mexico, and advanced through the ranks to the position of head of the DEA's Arizona branch.
On July 2, 2011, when the temperature in Phoenix hit 48°C, Arpaio measured the temperature inside Tent City at 63°C. Some inmates complained that fans near their beds were not working, and that their shoes were melting from the heat. During the summer of 2003, when outside temperatures exceeded 43°C, Arpaio said to complaining inmates, "It's 120 degrees in Iraq and the soldiers are living in tents, have to wear full body armor, and they didn't commit any crimes, so shut your mouths." In 1997, Amnesty International published a report on Arpaio's jails which found that Tent City is not an "adequate or humane alternative to housing inmates in suitable ... jail facilities." Tent City is criticized by groups contending that there are violations of human and constitutional rights. Those critical of Arpaio also point out that the vast majority of inmates within Tent City have not been convicted; rather, they are merely awaiting trial.
