Sheriff Joe to Go? Thanks for the Memories?

Jacques Billeaud of the Washington Post
reports that Maricopa County's Sheriff Joe Arpaio may be seeing the end of the line.  Here are some highlights (lowlights?) of the story:

"In the eyes of critics, Arpaio is a racist bully driven by a hunger for publicity who has helped manufacture criminal charges against people who crossed him politically. They say he treats powerless people harshly because it's popular with voters."

"Mayors of some cities have complained that they didn't want or need the crackdowns in their communities and accused Arpaio of targeting Hispanics on minor infractions, like having a broken headlight."

The story includes much information about Arpaio and his "accomplishments" and trevails.  Interestingly, but not surprisingly, one of his favorite tunes is Frank Sinatra's "My Way."  Here is to you, Sheriff Joe!

It just may be a good week!
