Breaking: Feds Raid Sheriff Joe’s Arizona Office

More political targeting by the Obama administration.

Federal agents raided Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office Saturday under the orders of a federal judge.
The Obama administration has been harassing and targeting Sheriff Joe since Obama moved into the White House.

FOX 10 Phoenix reported, via Weasel Zippers:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is being accused of withholding records. Federal agents removed hundreds of id cards and hard drives from his office, under the orders of a federal judge.

Judge Murray Snow held an emergency court hearing after learning that the Sheriff allegedly failed to hand over the items that are part of the investigation.

It’s just one of the latest allegations against Sheriff Joe Arpaio. They include allegations of racial profiling that he conducted an investigation into Judge Snow, and now his office may have kept evidence from the court.

Federal Agents seized about 1,400 identification cards, and 50 hard drives. It’s the stash of evidence that Judge Snow says Arpaio failed to hand over.

“The judge has finally put his foot down, he’s drawn a line on the sand a long time ago, and I’ll tell you what, he’s had it up to here with the Sheriff’s Office again, has refused to comply with the courts order,” said Lydia Guzman.

Sheriff Joe is known for his hardliner rules at his facilities.
