The Obama Administration actually accused Arpaio of blatant disregard of the US Constitution.

Arpaio reacts to U.S. DOJ lawsuit:

The lawless Obama Administration filed suit today against Sheriff Joe Arpaio over trumped up racism charges.
FOX News reported:

The Obama administration announced Thursday that it is suing Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, accusing him and his Maricopa County office of engaging in a pattern of discrimination against Latinos.

The announcement by Justice Department officials came after months of negotiations failed to yield an agreement to settle claims that his department racially profiled Latinos in his trademark immigration patrols. Arpaio defended himself in response, claiming the federal government is trying to tell him how to run his office.

Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, at a press conference Thursday, described this as an abuse of power case. He accused the sheriff of scuttling negotiations by refusing to allow independent monitors.

The Department of Justice lawsuit marked an escalation in the agency’s civil rights investigation of Arpaio and puts the dispute on track to be decided by a federal judge.

The DOJ first leveled the allegations against Arpaio in December, saying that a culture of disregard for basic constitutional rights prevailed at the Maricopa County sheriff’s office, which covers metro Phoenix. Federal officials held off on filing a lawsuit as they tried to reach a settlement, but talks broke off last month.

The Justice Department wants to place a monitor at the sheriff’s office, basically watching everything he does. But Arpaio says he won’t allow that.
This is criminal.

    Based on their history, the Racial Justice Department ought to be ready to go to trial in about 5 years.

    Unless the November election constitutes “exigent circumstances” or something.

    If Naziism is right-wing…

    …this administration sure is shaping up to be extremely right-wing.

  • Paul in N. AL

    Ah trying to shore up his Hispanic vote, first gays now hispanics.

    Oh and if Holders looking for a place to oversee Arpaio, I know a good dumpster that Holder should be used to. We’ll get a nice desk and lamp set up in there and don’t worry you won’t get any rain in there as we’ll make sure that the top is bolted down firmly.

  • Oh Noes!

    The truth will come out and Sheriff Joe will be around long after January 2013!!!!

  • mg4us

    I hope Sheriff Joe uses this suit and the discovery process to go place and get into things that our news media refuses to investigate. . . He may be able to ask for and find things that would have been private or out-of-reach. . like what was Holder’s role in the FAST-and-Furious Gun running scheme. . .and what deals Obama and Acorn have cut along with LaRaza. .

    Follow-the-money trail Sheriff Joe. . .

    And know we are here supporting you!

    You cannot be a racist if your job is to SERVE lawful American Citizens. . . key words Lawful Citizens. . .American citizens. . .

    And while you are at it, ask to see Obama’s Original Birth Certificate. . .how about doing a DNA test to see if the Kenyan Obama was really his Dad and not Malcolm X!!!!;_ylt=At7HGFAVUP9RGE4ENT6.6mGbvZx4?p=malcolm+X&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8&fr=yfp-t-540

    See the resemblance????

    Actually Sherriff Joe does not have to comply with any directive from the DOJ, as his authority exceeds that of the DOJ, IRS, NSA, etc. More and more sherriffs are learning of their Constitutional authority and are using it to halt federal strong-arm tactics in several counties around the country.

  • owl

    Yep, this is criminal conduct by Justice. Can anyone type Justice with a straight face?

    Sherriff Joe does not want their KGB agent? Do we happen to have any ELECTED voices that do not like KGB agents turned loose on Americans?

    Even Democrats are getting their fill of the criminal Holder.

    ‘The House Wednesday evening voted overwhelmingly to prevent the Justice Department from using taxpayer funds to lie to Congress.

    The vote came in a Wednesday evening series of amendments to a bill, H.R. 5326, funding the Justice Department for 2013. Members approved the language in a 381-41 vote; all 41 “no” votes came from Democrats, although 142 Democrats voted with Republicans in support of the amendment.

    The vote reflects the ongoing frustration Republicans — and apparently some Democrats — have with Attorney General Eric Holder.’

    This most recent article takes up the Consitutional authority of Sherriffs and two very different bills.

    I found it surprising to read that Gov Brewer vetoed the Arizona bill because of her concern over the effect it would have on federal law enforcement. In my view, that should not be her concern. Her concern should be the people for whom she represents, not any federal agency. Especially in today’s political climate.

    I truly believe that had the local sherriffs exerted their authority, Ruby Ridge and the Branch Dividian tragedies would not have occurred.

    ‘Should Mitt Romney be elected, there will still be pain for our economy. That is no longer avoidable. Far too much damage has been done over the course of these last few years. Some of this damage certainly pre-dates the Obama presidency, but he and the progressive leaders of the Democratic Party have quite effectively accelerated it, making it increasingly difficult, and now impossible, to manage. A President Romney provides at least the hope of a recovery that leaves most of what we know as American still intact. A President Obama second term leaves little to nothing we know as America intact. I cannot promise whether or not Mr. Romney has the fortitude necessary to face the challenge of what is coming in 2013. I do know that he genuinely wants to at least try. That cannot be said of Barack Obama.

    I told you recently I thought evil had come to the White House and to America. That was not the ramblings of an old sick man. I remain convinced of that belief. I know of evil. I have seen its wicked hand hiding behind the smiling false promise of Hope and Change as it rips away the futures of the innocent from the face of this earth.

    And so, for the first time in my life, I now fight directly against a presidential candidate. And if I might say, hopefully without sounding too terribly arrogant, I am not one to lose. As our mutual friend once said in their own unique and quite appropriate way, ”He needs his ass kicked into the dirt.”

    I intend to do just that.’

    ”He needs his ass kicked into the dirt.”

    It won’t be dirt. He has facilitated the theft of ten or more TRILLION DOLLARS from the United States Treasury.

    If he gets beaten in the election, he will leave office as one of the richest men on Earth.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Ten billion dollars.

    Even if he only gets back 1/10th of 1 percent he’s still got a cool billion dollars.

    Plus “speaking fees” for the remainder of his life. Plus his Presidential Pension. And he’s probably going to double-dip and take a Senate pension as well. Like a good Democrat.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Ten billion for him if, as I suggested, he facilitated the theft of ten trillion or more dollars.

    Arpaio is just getting too close to the truth about Obama’s fake vital records. This is Obama’s way of putting a severed horse head in the bed of every media reporter . The message is to stay away from Joe’s press conferances and report nothing he says…..or you get one of Vladimir Putin’s arsenic cocktails .

  • Ron?

    Does this idiot administration actually believe that they are shoring up independent votes by sending their brownshirts after sovereign law enforcement agencies, agents and private citizens? Folks, it’s going to be a long 6 months until this stain on our country gets bleached out. In the meantime expect more attacks from the Reichstag against their detracters. Stand tall and stand proud; President Douchenozzle will be defeated in November. Bunker down though, I expect that a certain demographic in our country will use his defeat as justification to rob, rape, riot and destroy on Nov. 05, 2012.
