Roberts: Joe Arpaio says he may run for Senate but only if you send him cash ASAP

Friday, 10 November 2017, 02:32:02 AM. Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he can't consider a run for Jeff Flake's Senate seat unless he can first retire his legal debt. Seriously.
There are two things in in life that are absolutely guaranteed. No, not death and taxes. One. The fact that every time a major political office opens up in Arizona, Joe Arpaio will float a trial a balloon that he might make a run for it. This, because he says his supporters are overwhelming him with requests that he jump into the race. (See: governor's races in 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014.) And Two. After he’s gotten maximum TV and internet exposure, he will announce that reluctantly, he’s decided not to run, after all. (See: governor's races in 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014.) This time, however, he’s not just snookering gullible journalists.  That’s right. Maricopa County’s favorite ousted sheriff and pardoned misdemeanor criminal is cranking up the old fundraising machine once again. His latest plea: give me cash so I can decide whether to run for the open U.S. Senate seat created by Jeff Flake's decision not to run again.   Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio as seen in 1993.  The Republic Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio with his wife Ava in 1992.  The Republic Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in 1992.  The Republic Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio with his wife Ava in 1992  The Republic Maricopa County Sherriff Joe Arpaio talks with media during a news conference announcing the opening of Tent City II in Phoenix, Tuesday, May 9, 1995.  TJ Sokol/Associated Press Female inmates at the Maricopa County tent city jail listen to Sheriff Joe Arpaio talk to the...Read more
