Sheriff Joe to Get His Just Desserts? Justice Dept. Threatens to Sue Ariz. Sheriff Arpaio in Civil Rights Inquiry

Star_alone_black
The Washington Post reports:

Justice Department officials in Washington have issued a rare threat to sue Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio if he doesn't cooperate by Tuesday with their investigation into whether he discriminates against Hispanics. The civil rights probe is one of two targeting the man who calls himself "America's Toughest Sheriff" -- a federal grand jury in Phoenix is examining whether Arpaio has used his power to investigate and intimidate political opponents and whether his office misappropriated government funds, sources said.
