Arizona Governor Debate
September 3, 2010 by USA Post
Arizona Governor Debate, Washington (CNN) – Sheriff Joe Arpaio Challenging Obama accused the Justice Department to try to “sandbag” him by filing a suit against his office Thursday. Another problem rippling through Arizona politics, the lawman said he had never heard of a beheading in Arizona tied to illegal immigration.
The Justice Department said it had no choice but to adjust file because it says Arpaio’s office was refusing to surrender documents requested and to provide the researchers access to Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office personnel.
“Recently our lawyers in Washington, have met with them,” Arpaio said in an interview with me for “John King, USA” to air Thursday at 7 pm ET. “They have thousands and thousands of our documents. And we thought we had solved this thing, but now they sandbag and they sue me. Why is that when we work together? It took a year-and-a-half and why now?
“You know, this is the third lawsuit that they filed against the state of Arizona, now – a school district and now me. Three times over alleged discrimination. So it seems like they ganging Arizona – the people of Arizona about these illegal immigration problem. … They have to describe what they want. They want the whole world. Limit what they want. What did they ask us what they want? ”
Arpaio threw himself as “the doll” in a political battle with Washington and added: “We will see them in court.”
During the interview I also asked Arpaio about a subject that became a flashpoint in an Arizona gubernatorial debate Wednesday night. Democrat Terry Goddard pressed GOP governor in January Brewer, a statement she made earlier this year proposed Arizona law enforcement officials revoked had found examples of beheadings that Brewer in connection with the illegal immigration problem. Media reports in the state have found no evidence of beheadings or reported to law enforcement agencies.
