Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is so tough he wants you to pay his bills.

Arpaio said in a letter to supporters that he doesn’t have the money to continue paying for attorneys out of his own pocket, adding that he feels “targeted” by the immigration rights groups that have sued him to stop what they say are racist policies targeting Latinos.In some instances I have to personally pay for attorneys to represent me in these cases,” Arpaio wrote in an email Thursday. “I do not have the personal wealth or the wherewithal to keep up with the costly demands of paying for attorneys to defend me.”

Arpaio made the plea while awaiting a decision by U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow on whether the sheriff broke the law in failing to carry out a 2011 court order to refrain from bias against minorities.

    It’s amazing how these self righteous conservative asshats are all full of bluster and bullshit one minute and the next are playing the down trodden victim.
    This hateful bigot deserves jail time wearing pink underwear and eating crappy food whilst sleeping on the ground in a tent just like those he tortured.

    • Suzanne McFly May 25th, 2015 at 8:36 pm

      And what is so stupid is his supporters will happily let the government pay millions for his defense but then they will be the first to yell about how a vet or a single mom needs $140 a month in food stamps.

    i dunno guys, bigotry is often the right thing to do in western countries

    i’m still not sure why you don’t just set up a machine gun line at the border

    kill enough and they stop coming you know

    • bpollen May 25th, 2015 at 9:13 pm

      You’re right.
      It is usually the “Right” thing to do.

      But we’re on the left.

      jeepers creepers, go back to your cage in the zoo xu!

    • ecotoper May 26th, 2015 at 2:00 pm

      what US border did you slither through, xu ? … you aren’t exactly the poster boy for main street America … Hispanic people have a much closer connection to this country than you ever did … they owned most of the southwestern part of the continent before we screwed them out of it … you notice that nobody is trying to get into China, but maybe you could still return … do us all a favor and go back there … you could make t-shirts for us …

      • Terry "Death to Equality" Xu May 26th, 2015 at 4:28 pm

        is main street america a white guy or what? sounds like kinda xenophobia there

        face it folks, ideological leftism is a pathology of the white race, your minority followers are just there out of self interest

        the less white america becomes, the more it’ll become like me

  5. Suzanne McFly May 25th, 2015 at 8:37 pm

    Naaaah, I don’t think we should help out this dh, we should dress him up in pink panties and throw him to the wolves.

  6. Obewon May 25th, 2015 at 8:50 pm

    Grifter Arpaio’s millions in conflict of interest land payola, and other investments prove Sheriff pink panties is a liar once again.

    Arpaio’s Karma is millions paid out annually for his lawsuit losses: “Unlike most of Arpaio’s victims, we had the financial wherewithal to defend ourselves in court, and we were able to speak through the newspaper,” Lacey and Larkin say in a statement. “But the vulnerable and impoverished victims of Arpaio’s ongoing abusive practices have neither the money nor the voice to fight back.”-The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve a $3.75 million settlement for New Times’ co-founders, whose false arrests in 2007 were orchestrated by Sheriff Joe Arpaio!

    Aahhhh HAAA HAAA HAAA!

    And that’s all I have to say about that.

    Targeted you say?

  9. allison1050 May 26th, 2015 at 3:37 am

    Well, I’m certain that those old fools will help with donations but it would seem as if it would be cheaper on this old man if he’s take is ass home, that is if he can remember where home is. Also, if he would try following the court’s orders then he wouldn’t be continually hauled into court. But I am happy to know that he thinks he’s being targeted. ;o)

  10. liberalMD May 26th, 2015 at 4:33 am

    Another example of the right wing aiding and abetting another criminal.

  11. causeican May 26th, 2015 at 7:39 am

    It’s nice that Joe now knows how it feels to be targeted.

  12. David Ish May 26th, 2015 at 7:43 am

    He should be in jail she how it is on the other side.

    • BigDumbWhiteGuy May 26th, 2015 at 7:58 pm

      Oh, come on now. You know that a good, upstanding, God-fearing white man like Sherriff Joe will never see the inside of an actual jail.

  13. StoneyCurtisll May 26th, 2015 at 10:58 am

    Arpaio has no one to blame but himself..
    Put him in tent city, give him pink clothes and feed him green baloney..
    Just like the rest of the inmates in Maricopa County.

  14. oldfart May 26th, 2015 at 12:36 pm

    There’s a reason why your lawyers cant “defend” you, moron.
    I hope they strip you of every cent you have in your “defense”.

  15. AnthonyLook May 26th, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    I implore anyone that can sue to please do.

  16. DrPills May 26th, 2015 at 7:24 pm

    Bet he’ll look great in Pink Underwear

  17. BigDumbWhiteGuy May 26th, 2015 at 8:00 pm

    A. Where do I buy bootstraps?
    B. How do I get them to Sherriff Joe?

    • cecilia May 26th, 2015 at 8:59 pm

      he needs to buy his own damn bootstraps.

  18. Bea May 27th, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    Stop being a racist or quit your job and go live with Ann Coulter

  19. Ben Ghazi May 29th, 2015 at 5:44 am

    I wonder if he cared about all the false arrests he did and the lawyer fees those victims incurred trying to defend themselves.
