    Sheriff Joe Arpaio requesting contributions

    Just received a letter from him asking for a contribution, I'm in GA!

    How did this petty tyrant get my name and address?

    No SASE either, he wants me to use my own stamp.

    If I had to reconsider voting for Johnson (I'm still writing in Paul), it would be due to the fact that he has openly criticized Arpaio.

    I got one too in Chicago. No idea why I'd be on his mailing list.

    Arpaio is a detestable human being and probably the worst sheriff in America. Rumor has it that he also has a huge hand in the drug business. Hypocritical much?

    Yea, I've been on his mailing list since before I moved to Arizona. No idea how he got my information.

    *cough* Benton.

    Sorry. Had to blame it on Benton. Habit.

    Only half joking, though.

    Have you contributed money to any campaigns? He may have purchased mailing lists of conservative donors.

    Yes, Ron Paul. He's the only politician that I have donated to in my life.

    I'd be more likely to donate to some fund for the prisoners he oversees.

    His budget for feeding the dogs on his force is bigger than his budget to feed prisioners (on a per-person or per-dog basis).

    He charges the prisoners for some of the food costs even.
    http://www.azcentral.com/news/articl...ofood1212.html

    Maricopa County jail inmates will start paying for their own meals beginning in January under a policy Sheriff Joe Arpaio revealed Thursday afternoon.

    The move could save taxpayers more than $900,000 each year in food costs, if the Sheriff's Office's early estimates are accurate.

    The policy would charge inmates $1.25 per day for their meals. It would apply only to those inmates who have money in personal accounts or "on their books." Arpaio estimated that about 2,000 of the nearly 10,000 inmates in the system will end up paying for food each day.




    Those who can't afford to pay will still receive food, but Arpaio said prison officials will track their free meals.


    Inmates can accrue money in their accounts in two ways. If they're carrying cash when they are arrested, it goes into an account. Later, friends and relatives can send them money.

    Prisoners with funds in their accounts will be charged for those meals. Inmates who can't pay will have an open tab, so they would face those charges if arrested again and return to one of the county facilities.

    Other county sheriffs have similar efforts under way, including Brevard County, Fla.

    "If (family members) send money in to buy chocolate bars, it's going to go to food first instead of chocolate bars," Arpaio said as he led a tour of the sheriff's sprawling food-preparation facility on Lower Buckeye Road.

    But inmates use the funds in those accounts for more than treats from the commissary, said Debbie Hill, an attorney working on behalf of inmates in a civil lawsuit against the Sheriff's Office and the county about conditions in the jails.

    Inmates also use that money to pay for services, she said, including medical care, for which Arpaio still charges.

    "To suggest that the only reason they have money on their books is to pay for commissary is totally incorrect. That money goes to pay for medical care, and I'm very concerned that what will happen is that people will no longer be able to pay for other services they need because this will be subtracted," she said. "It's certainly going to discourage family members from putting money on their books."

    Inmates working on the food-preparation line weren't pleased when told they'd have to pay for eating jail food.

    "Are you serious? We come to work at 5 a.m. and don't get back to the tents until 3:30 in the afternoon," said Steven Sexton, 26, who was preparing to scoop food onto trays. "It's ridiculous, man. We're working."

    Arpaio said inmates aren't paid for their labor.

    Sexton and other inmates working Thursday afternoon complained of being served rotten or expired food and moldy bread, an assertion U.S. District Judge Neil Wake supported in a court ruling this year that found the jails offered an unconstitutional level of care

    Arpaio said he also wants to ask legislators to allow him to charge inmates for their beds, but the food move was previously authorized and immediately available.

    If Arpaio's predictions hold up, the maneuver could trim about 5 percent of the office's annual meal expenditures.

    This year, county supervisors approved a meal budget of more than $16.5 million to feed inmates nearly 15 million meals, according to county budget documents.

    Arpaio frequently touts his no-frills food-service policies as producing "30 cent meals," but the actual cost per meal is about $1.11 when food preparation and service is added into the equation. Inmates are fed twice a day, which brings the daily cost of meals in the jails to more than $2.

    Arpaio said he is authorized to charge that much for each inmate.

    "I think $1.25 is reasonable," he said.
    Looking for numbers but he was funding the local animal shelter to the tune of $18 million while spending $16.5 million a year on prisoner food.

    Bit of info on why he is trying to raise funds outside the state:
    http://www.examiner.com/article/amer...g-up-his-badge

    First elected in 1996 with 83% of the vote, Arpaio experienced the high water mark early. With every re-election the percentage of voters checking the box marked Arpaio got smaller and smaller. Arpaios own Wikipedia page lists his victory totals as 66.5% in 2000; 56% in 2004 and 55% in 2008.

    Arpaio’s focus was on law enforcement during his first nine years in office. Before 2005 he disavowed that illegal immigrants were not a problem for the Sheriff’s Office to be involved with.

    While Arpaios self proclaimed tough guy image continues to play well in America, in Maricopa County – as in the rest of Arizona – his shine is starting to dull like a fifty cent belt buckle.

    Eighty percent of his accumulated war chest for the 2012 election was donated by supporters OUTSIDE of Arizona, 2700 of which came from California alone.

    A recent Rolling Stone profile of Arpaio documents the sheriff's long history of catering to the far-right extremes in order to draw campaign donations and support from outside the state. “As long as the spotlight remains on me,” Arpaio says, “…the controversy hasn't hurt me.”

    Arpaio has political aspirations beyond the desert in Arizona. "If things go right," Arpaio told the magazine, the birther investigation "should take us into the White House."

    While high national approval ratings may prompt him to dream of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the support within Maricopa County is dropping. According to a poll commissioned by Arizona Central, his approval ratings have dropped 7% from 2008 to 2012.

    I don't know if I necessarily disagree with charging prisoners that legitimately belong in jail through a work program of some sort.
    I believe that at this point in history, the greatest danger to our freedom and way of life comes from the reasonable fear of omniscient State powers kept in check by nothing more than policy documents.

    I did say legitimately. Meaning that they have committed a crime against someone else and not themselves or run afoul of any number of federal or state regulations that shouldn't be on the books. If you're a political prisoner, either here or elsewhere, I don't agree.
