"Conservative. Small government thing. I can't overstate how expensive it is to have you pilots your sheriff paul penzone. The new sheriff beat rpo largely on a platform of cleaning up the mcs.

Admission would then was then free to go on fox news and say fuck off to a federal judge he oh he felt not wrongly that he was like allow he could continue his climbing and his flaunting.

"Hundred percent out there. So in a statement of interest in a case against the the department of justice described the decision to use untrained volunteers to search vehicles transport arrested immigrants and carry out worksite raids. They noted quote. Mcs provides insufficient supervision and oversight to ensure that volunteer posse members taking apart immigration enforcement activities. Do so without engaging in unlawful discrimination after the sandy hook massacre are pyo sent armed posse members to patrol elementary schools. Even though they were not certified peace officers the new time. Cinta correspondent along one of these rights. Quote the one time detroit. Cop explains that he'd rather be in our piles posse. And this case that involves driving around fifteen miles per hour around diamond canyon elementary school and through all the dead silent residential streets that provide access to the schools property. That's his definition of a hobby. He explains and these are the kind of weirdos who want this gig right like. It's this very bizarre mix of people who had been cops and missed feeling like you know important and people who could never be cops because they were in some cases dangerous criminals but wanted to play it being a cop and joe would let them do it. If they'd worked for him for free they were all bad at their job the commander of his executive posse who was also the former chairman of the maricopa county republican party. That was used for his auto parts. Business and in nineteen ninety six was used to make campaign signs for pies reelection campaign in nineteen ninety seven. It was found that a massive marijuana smuggling network had been using the warehouse to millions of dollars. They like the location because they were always patrol cars parked outside competitors. I gotta ask for. We sure that this guy was absolutely are not sheriff that area new sheriff that he hasn't been charged with it as far as i'm aware but we are not sure of that so in two thousand nine hundred ninety three years after pyo left office an audit was carried out that investigated the posse. I'm going to quote from twelve news a local network here an mcas. Oh audit found. Poor record-keeping had resulted in some unqualified individuals being allowed to continue participating in posse activities for example individuals with prior arrests and convictions for domestic violence drug offence in sex offenses and other criminal activity. Those individuals have been removed from the posse. Former sheriff jar spoke up for the group of mcs. Oh volunteers tuesday in a phone interview with twelve news. We did background. Checks in them are pyo said. Adding any big organization is bound to have a couple problems but a great program. We saved the county millions of dollars every year now. The new audit information came nearly two weeks after the temporary suspension of the policy program by share. Paul penzone when he dropped this bombshell at a press conference only four of the two hundred thirty five members cleared to carry guns. Were actually qualified to do so this. That's the of armed plus. I actually really qualified to carry a gun. Four thirty yeah bad. That is very bad ratio. Yeah two percent rule is during my research into this. I found fascinating article in the oddest of about a police of about a police. Impersonator named steve fars. Am his best friend. Who is a security guard who also pretended to be a cop and eventually ratted far same out to the feds for dozens of felonies. Farzin was illegally impersonating. Fbi agents to access sealed records. He owning he owned and sold restricted uniforms and machine guns illegally. He was just crying all hardcore now. Farzana was not a member of joe's posse but his friend was in the two. Were working together and getting farsm membership when their friendship fell apart in one of the branded the other out and these are both guys that like dressed up as cops all the like drove around. La with police lights pretending to be officers illegally carrying their that kind of dude and they're the kind of people who love to be georgios posse and the article gives a description of both men that i think does a good job of explaining the kind of people who volunteered for the posse generously. You could them police wannabes guys. Who longed to be associated with or better yet mistaken for officers of the law. Dan sel and farsm spent years obsessing over police culture. The became fluent in the lingo from copy and place of i understand to the numbered codes. Cops use when speaking over. Radios favorite is four seventeen which means i'm armed. They accumulated dozens of certificates and skills like handling firearms. Picking locks lose it using tasers and responding to accidents aunts. That's like the it's cop. Wanna be weirdos who can't do the job because like they're dangerously unhinged a lot of cases like selling machine guns to people and stuff like they're right. They've gotten major felony arrests themselves. These other yet. These guys did and they want to. They want to carry guns. But they can't legally qualify to and he just gave him this gray area for all of these really dangerous people in a lot of cases. It's giving felons our chance to do cop 'cause play yes. This cost play is real and go in. And you know rip off hookers and motown neighborhoods and attacks the all. Yeah now in that felons usually but a lot of them had some sort of some of them were felons. Yes so felons. Whatever you i mean or some portion but i mean it sounds like there's a lot more people with records than there were people look qualified to do the job. Yes absolutely and because it. Yeah it's it's not a job for people who are qualified to do it. It's a job for people who want an excuse to be a big man and ideally do some violence with the state's backing so the case that would eventually lead to sheriff. Joe's criminal conviction happened in two thousand seven. It started with a traffic stop of a mexican man with a valid tourist visa. Joe's deputies arrested him and held him illegally for nine hours. The man sued alleging racial profiling and the suit turned into a class action for all latino motorists in maricopa county. Joe lost the case and the judge ordered our to stop detaining anyone. Not suspected of a crime and being in the us illegally is not a crime. It is a civil violation. It is not something normal cops are supposed to be able to do shit over. That was two thousand eleven for the next half decade. Multiple federal judges found are pyo in blatant violation of the injunction repeatedly showed up on fox news to say he would not abide by it. He also lied. Under oath in an attempt to obstruct further inquiries after twenty one days of hearings in two thousand fifteen. He was found in civil contempt. The judge in that case was so frustrated by our pilot that he referred him to another judge for criminal contempt of court. Joe was convicted and he could have faced six months in jail but the national center for police defense sent forty thousand petitions to the justice department and with donald trump in office. There was never any chance that joe was going to serve time. Trump pardoned are pyo when he never served a day in prison. The good news is his political. Career is pretty dead at this point although he unfortunately is not he lost reelection in two thousand sixteen to a mix of demographic change there when as many white people in maricopa as their had been and due to the fact that by this point vast mountains of lawsuits against his brutal jail had cost the county more than one hundred and forty million dollars or.

Yeah there's not enough liquor in the damn world to do that job all right so yeah twenty. Two hundred fucking lawsuits in federal court. The new yorker rights remarkably are pyo has paid almost no political price for running. Jails that are so patently dangerous and inadvertently expensive indeed until recently there were few local or state politicians willing to criticize him publicly. Those who have including members of the county board of supervisors which can cross his budget tend to find themselves under investigation by the sheriff's office. Local journalists super turbo are pile have also been targeted. The phoenix new times ran an investigation of our real estate dealings. That included home address.

"So i don't know why it's weird right that he doesn't go for governor. I think it's maybe because he would have had to do shit other than just like torture. People and do news interviews neuro. That's why said what i said. What is this guy was still in office. Talk twenty six hundred thousand sixteen. Yeah it's fucking bonkers house my reaction to it is it is out of its mind. How long this motherfuckers in doing his job. This guy is definitely on some like neo. Abu ghraib will torturing at minimum. Yeah then it's like there's the fake assassination plot that puts a sin a innocent man in these tent cities for four years. Then there's like okay. Maybe it was only. He was running an adult or side. There were only children photograph. Maybe jail camps keeps going for more than a dozen years. Yeah i can't believe it's it's outrageous. It's really fucked up. And i have to give credit to note that we have a lot of sources for this episode. Like half of them are different articles from the phoenix. new times. Like twenty something years like bit onto this guy like a bulldog and deeply reported every fucked up thing he did in eventually. It did matter. It did not matter soon enough as a journalist. You don't want to wait twenty two years or so for the staff. An but it does eventually breakthrough and credit goes to them because they really like. They had some people who were who stuck to him like glue. Now it's here. I should note. Noah as i talked about briefly teased really last episode in the nineteen ninety s. Joe arpaio started a posse now. This was what it sounds like a group of volunteer amateurs untrained who were given certain law enforcement powers and partnered off with real cops to do cop shit or at least joe's version of that. Some of these men were allowed to carry firearms. Much of what they did was publicity driven. It became an annual spectacle from members of joe's posse to patrol malls and shopping centers armed during the holiday season. Joe's posse would max out about thirty five hundred men. Many of whom were taught to breach rooms and again carry weapons. They're doing like armed entry. Trainings and shit. What the hell. This guy's whole job is to run the jail. Yeah yeah. I mean he's got. He's managing the sheriff's department. Which does law enforcement shit right like if the town doesn't have a copy of its own. it's the sheriff's deputies. They call sure these guys like basically they were. This isn't like the phoenix pd. No expedia gets very angry at them. In a number of occasions mean gig is to run the jail. Yeah instead he gets thirty. Five hundred volunteer peopling ran does yeah to patrol the mall on christmas. Don't worry they do whether fucked up shit in two thousand and four news broke about a prostitution sting carried out in november of two thousand three that in the county attorney's words violated accepted standards of professionalism. Now what this means in practice is that as part of one of his big ongoing media pushes sheriff. Joe sent dozens of undercover deputies and members of his posse sixty minutes. Total a mix of deputies posse members to do a huge bust on sex workers. They arrested almost sixty. Women tenor so john's at first. This looked like normal. Rpo shit. He held a big press conference. There were news stories. He claimed that this was the largest single-day bust of sex workers and county history. But then the real story trickled out from the phoenix. New times quote. The county attorney's office said that some undercover deputies and certain posse members engaged in oral sexual contacts breast fondling genital cognac. Masturbation nudity and other behavior which is contrary to professional law enforcement and legitimate public policy the techniques undermine prosecution by reducing the likelihood of conviction a key factor to note. Is that all that is needed. To establish commission of a crime in a prostitution case is for two people to discuss the exchange of money for sex. no sex act need occur. Notice anyone have to remove a shred of clothing therefore prostitution cases are the simplest to make virtual no brainers for cops. Here's an example of how posse member glenn cough handled an encounter with an alleged prostitute. Last october twenty ninth. Kaufman drew to a massage parlor on west thomas road and agreed to pay forty dollars for a thirty minute rubbed down a woman in her early fifties told kaufman to take off his clothes. Kaufman agreed he then lay face. I said massage table and the woman began rubbing his back. She started to chew on my left ear. Put her tongue in my ear and whispered words to the effect of me not to be surprised if she ran her tongue. Over my balls and my shaft. Until they came all over kaufman states in his signed police report. She told me then for an additional one hundred dollars she did the massage and the nude and would give me oral sex. I told her i would get one hundred dollars. I got off the table. Took one hundred dollars out of my trouser pocket and gave it to her. At this point a crime has been committed. Kaufman should have made the bust but the sheriff's posse member was far from dead. He continued to pay for sexual acts from her for quite some time. The article goes into much more detail. About what this posse member did. What other posse members and deputies did. I'm not going to belabor the point. The gist of it is that arpaio's men a mix of cops. Volunteers were straight up using prostitutes for sex and then arresting them once they got their rocks off so they didn't have to pay. That's what they were doing. My god my god so this fucking wild. It's incredible so okay. So this guy starts out his career in drug enforcement pretending to be a pimp. Yep and then there's maybe what they called the treatment the full circle years later. He's sending his crew out to get blow jobs and then sort of paying for them arresting the blow job. Yeah he's in their money butts man. Yeah it's pretty great guy. The good thing is all of these women had their charges. Dropped like no one actually got because police were doing and these posse members doing blatantly criminal right like nobody actually got in trouble. I mean some probably had to send wait a minute. Do they have to go to or piles tent city and i think degree in. Yeah you know. It's like okay great. They got their charges dropped. But still it fucking sucked for whatever that in twelve twenty four hours. It was definitely not trying to say it was not a horribly fucked up but at least none of these women wound up with fucking felonies. But yeah it's just incredibly fucked up and it shows we'll talk more about his posse later. No there's more to say about this policy but like that's the kind of shit the posse got up to god. Two thousand six is the year when things really started to shift for joe pyeho and he became the man. We know him as today again. He'd started his career. Focusing on is a sheriff focusing on the crimes he'd gone after as a law man drugs and sex and violence and the like but two thousand six's when he really started to shift his focus towards immigrants. One important fact to note about joe arpaio is that well. He's always exhibited degree of personal racism. Racism was not initially central to his political campaigns. He ran for sheriff. The first time by making two points one was that the existing sheriff was shitty and wasting money and the other was that he could reduce crime by doing drug war bullshit by the time he settled into his third term though the united states had gone through some pretty significant shifts in two thousand one. You may remember this. Noah in two thousand one the tim allen movie big trouble debuted and it was followed shortly thereafter by a terrorist attack on new york city in both of these events changed.

No sheriff joe story. No i mean no because he still fucking man. It's crazy how long this guy.

"Yeah i'm just clownish nece. Yeah right like there's been a million cases where an fbi agent has suggested pushed along. Some kind of wanna be terrorist. Wanna be bad. There's i mean like like literally several times a week you cases earliest did see cases like this and and i mean there's hundreds of them and i've never ever never heard of an entrapment defense working even as you say. There's a lot of times with some pretty sketches xavier. Cops it is hard. It is hard as a cop to actually get to actually cross the line to where you lose an entrapment case. And they do in this like as an example of how how agree gis. They're being now. Despite the fact that he was totally innocent the entire time it was completely exonerated. A and yet. I mean basically. I'm actually going to quote from that article the after the trial jurors told farragut the defense lawyer they were convinced that seville had been ponant. An elaborate media ploy are pyo had cameras out there waiting to film the arrest. Farragut says the jurors indicated that this was clearly publicity stunt. Now that's the best case scenario. If you're this kid right completely exonerated. He still spends four years in. Joe arpaio's tint jail because yeah he gets denied bond because he's a terrorist who tried to assassinate the sheriff. Now he and his family did win a one. Point one million dollar settlements. I don't know that that makes up for four years of hell like this. Nah not not at all. News articles published at the time. Suggested this could be a turning point in joe's career the moment when people finally saw who he was in turned against him. It's true that the state republican party did briefly declined to endorse him for reelection in that a number of former backers pulled away from him but the the voters did not abandon sheriff joe as a result of this and in the end he was reelected to a third term. The way he saw it he was just getting started. And that's where we're going to end for part one noah off of.

"We're back and we're talking about joe in his story of this gunfight that may or may not have happened now eighty ninety s when he tells this to congress years later when he's a sheriff he writes to different memoirs while he co writes. He hires a ghost writer to write two different sets of memoirs and in both memoirs. He repeats the story with more embellishment in this version. He ties it into turkish politics adding quote. It's not that. I was glad the dealers had been killed. I wasn't but it happened in more often than on one occasion so he's still adding that now he's saying i multiple people right like again. It keeps part of why. I'm pretty part of way. I don't know if i think he's ever been in. A gunfight is the story evolves with starts. There was one gunfight guy died we had daily gunfights and then one time i killed somebody or killed. Two people is what he tells congress and there was a big court case and then the third version is. I killed people in a bunch of different occasions version. Four in my daily were drove an armored personnel carrier down. The streets of vistan bull mowing down by standards. Just machine gunning drug dealers sport of. That's how he wants people to think about his fucking. I mean and that's that's the image. He paints himself when he sheriff joe and he gets all these tanks and he's got guys with machine guns all over the place like very much wants to be seen as this like wild west law man tight mother like he you know you know the the kind of image he wants to portray that he's like charles bronson you know. Yeah he's he's definitely. If you've never seen a charles bronson movie they're all based around this like schlumpy middle aged man who just mows down drug dealers with machine guns in like new york city storm. Self yeah and grunts and sweats a lot Charles bronson so the authors of driving while brown digitally got to interview joe arpaio about this purported shooting They write quote. We asked our pyo several times. If he'd ever killed anybody he answered. Not that i know of although in turkey i used to have gun battles. I think one gun battle did one or two dope peddlers only because i am the one that had the gun. A thirty eight i guess. He added hastily that he had never killed anyone in the united states and other time. He told us in turkey. I've had some gun battles. I don't know who killed who. But i never killed anybody. Which is different from his congressional moaning. So he's just a liar. He's just a big liar noah. Just liar i think i also like it's not a gun battle if you're the only one with a.

"So i have no idea what to make of that because he tells the story differently every time you would think that the version in congress would be the most honest but he's also claimed had weekly gun battles in the mountains of turkey and i've never been able to find any evidence that would corroborate this. No one else stories in the da of that time sound like joe would have been involved in. He's painting the picture that he was at war in the mountains of turkey for several years. Basically hold on. He says he was indicted for murder. Like no big deal and he turned mench in turkey and he hadn't mentioned that in previous story. Nope nope i don't think so. No i think in his In that interview well in the interview he gave to that local phoenix paper. He says that several of the cops he was with got indicted and there was a trial and they were declared innocent but he doesn't mention himself being indicted in that first interview. So you can see seven years later. The story has evolved when he tells it to congress and not only is it like. Oh yeah we had this. One gunfight gunfight where a guy died. It's this is one of my weekly gunfights and it's you can see like the mythology right that he's he's going through as this happens so when he was on hold on. I have this awesome story. Let me tell you to others one part. I forgot this one little key detail out. I was indicted for murder dining bird. Who's one of my weekly gun battles. Where i get excited for murder. You know to me. All the time classics business interesting this this this most lavish version of the story in eighty nine comes at like two years before he runs for office. So you can see kind of starting to like build up this this internal mythology over like what he did as a da agent. And i don't think any of history. Like i said i don't actually know if i think joe arpaio was ever in a gunfight. I just don't know you know there's also a good chance. I think you talk to people who served in the military. They all have stories of guys who came back and then started embellishing. What happened in like eventually at bears no resemblance to like well yeah. There's this one time we were getting shot at and then like it's turned in his head into this thing different than what it was. So it's possible that like there was a there was a gun fight of some sort. That joe was around for and he's just turned it into something completely different. Don't really know but robert you know who definitely hasn't well. I don't know if they could possibly gun. Guess number of our sponsors. I would agree with that statement. I you don't move unless you're willing to lay down some heavy loss just dropping mac ten into okay.

"I've no idea if that was true. But that's how the media covered it. Because that's what joe told them and they ran with the story He was the only agent named in the article. So joe really engineers media coverage around this bust that he's one of the guys responsible for and he makes sure that he's the only name in that coverage and it goes. It goes over huge back home. His dad who he's got a very strict father is proud. He gets to see his kid in the newspaper. The newspaper gets passed all around his hometown. And it's joe arpaio's first big experience in using the media to stroke his own ego and to pad his career and he's going to get very good at this. In the future he plays the media pretty masterfully over the course of his career so joe was engaged in at least one gun battle during his time in turkey probably and this is where we get into a really interesting really interesting little dissection here noah the authors of the book driving while brown and i found actually the article. They did like a an excerpt from the book was published in the daily beast. Which is where i found. This did a really deep analysis of this reviewing his commentary on the incident from a newspaper. Archive a testimony. He gave before a senate subcommittee in two of his memoirs and they note that are pyo tells the story differently. Each time his first public recollection of the event was in nineteen eighty two near the end of his career. About twenty years after it would have happened if it happened. He told a phoenix reporter that he and five turkish. Cops got into a gun battle with drug dealers quote. Four of the turks got away and the other was shot to death. He gave no detail on who shot the man or the circumstances around the shooting. Joe talked about this gunfight again seven years later in nineteen eighty nine during a hearing before the international narcotics control caucus of the us senate cheered by a fellow. You might know named sleepy. Joe biden in his testimony before congress joe claimed to have not biden obviously are pyeho came to claim to have killed. Two turkish drug dealers. A pulse pounding shootout. He made this claim while criticizing the state department for being ineffective in supporting dea agents. Here's what he said. Quote a paradox. One of my weekly gun battles in the mountains of turkey where i killed two now. It's weekly we believe. Weekly like was it set in a certain time was like okay guys gun battle and he had that sounds to me like he had a weekly like maybe training session at the at the range like you went to the range every thursday at four and he had a gun battle with like a paper target. Yeah yeah i don't think he would. I don't have much faith in his ability to win that gun battle. But i'm not. I'm not sure he was ever in a gun fight. I'm going to say this is what he says before. Congress so i killed two turks to dope peddlers and i was indicted with four other police officers for murder. I sent a cable through state department channels and nothing happened three weeks later. They finally decided gee we had better do something with joe. Of course i resolve the matter. Indictment was dismissed and the other police officers had to stand trial but they were found not guilty guilty..

"Totally. Absolutely ask all the time. You're definitely couldn't get share. The roles were backed up way back. He also says he was in constant pain from being assaulted all the time. That might be true. i do not have trouble believing. He got beaten up a lot. I i will believe that. He decided to move on next to the next police department. He would serve in las vegas. Joe's most prominent claim from this time is that he wants pulled over elvis presley. Sometimes he claims that he actually arrested presley took him down to the station to meet other officers. I do not believe either iteration of this story. I think they are. Both lies. never seen any evidence that he arrested. Elvis obviously a lot of people pulled. Elvis presley over does not sure i can obey the rules of the road guy but joe arpaio also seems like a liar. Yeah yeah now. He was vegas cop for about six months when he signed on as an agent. For the federal. Bureau of narcotics. And this is the job that he would stick with for years and years. The officer the authors of driving while brown right we came to understand that are pyo learned in the small drug enforcement agency then overseen by the treasury department. A lot of things that would inform his tenure as maricopa county. Sheriff he learned how to assume fictitious role he learned how to sell validate by inserting himself in the news and he learned how to create chaos on the united states. Mexico border to achieve political goal in the early days are pyo dreamed up tough guy characters for his undercover work in jumped into those rules with gusto. One of his partners in chicago bill mattingly told us he and rpo went undercover passing themselves off as pimps looking for drugs to buy for their junkies whores. Again this is their language. Nineteen fifties sixties. I think maybe at this point to play these roles that were tooled around in fancy cars that authorities had seized from suspected. Crooks are pyo smoked a cigar in dressed in flashy sports coats. He purchased five dollar nickel bags of heroin for the horse after which he and mattingly placed the level dealer into the back of the car in threatened years of prison. If the dealer didn't name his supplier this earned our pyo the bureau nickname of nickel bag. Joe this early career. We here's the partner. Why the elaborate pimp costume at all right just by a nickel bag on the street. I bought a handful in nickel bags at no point of. I've been wearing a pimp cost like it's like what he's like the james o'keefe of the of the laws of the narcos dress like a pimp in order to do. Yeah you get that. And i also think he wanted to. He wanted to feel cool like he wanted to drive. Flashy car dress like a dress like a fucking hip guy like you get the feeling this will come up later with some of his posse members..

"But terry green sterling in jude. Joffe block who wrote a book about our pyo title driving while brown paint a less pleasant picture of his time in school quote. Joon pyo had a difficult time in school. He struggled to get passing grades and often bore the brunt of anti-immigrant tots dago wop guinea. He took it pretended to ignore it. Because that's what you did back then. He told us so. Joe suffers a lot of anti-immigrant racism as a kid which is believable. Live god and the abuser. The abuse becomes the abuse. Yeah i mean that is that is the story here world and it's you know it's one of those things he's definitely by the time. He's grow up the thirties. We're not quite at the height of kind of anti italian racism but it is still like a pretty common thing and his family is working class italian. There's there's certainly a lot of bigotry that he's he's growing up. In and around joe turned eighteen. He joined the army. There was a draft on at the time so this may have been more him accepting inevitability than doing a patriotism talked to. My grandpa was kind of in the same generation in a lot of guys joined the army because it was like well. If you join you get to pick your brand. She has some choice in what you do is supposed to kind of waiting for your number to come up. The korean war started immediately after he joins. Joe later wrote quote.

What the Election Taught Us About the Latina Vote
"A majority of latino voters did vote for joe biden and comma harris. They played a critical role in states like arizona like nevada. The played in pennsylvania part of my theory of what happened. Is that because florida went. I what happened in miami dade set the narrative about let the nose around the country in the eyes of people who don't know our community is that well and we're providing a lot of that analysis and it then became a wave of headlines that took what was a part of the story. Because i think there are two story. There is both the truth. That latinos turned out in incredible numbers for democrats and the truth. Donald trump made inroads among some communities within the latino community. Both things can be true. They didn't weighted equally in the way that we talked about it. But i also think most of the national media is based on the east coast. So there's a tendency to see things through that lens. Miami comes in first. Miami is wear people tend to think of a power center of latinos. Being latinos in miami are much more powerful than latinos elsewhere. But then when you step back is your sanely. The majority of latino voters are actually not for out there. They're all over the southwest. they're also in the in. The rust belt made a difference not only in pennsylvania. I think also maybe even in wisconsin and we tend to forget about those places where we tend to gloss over them really easily and i do think a lot of that has to do based on where the national media is based. Let's talk about what did happen in arizona because that story provides such a narrative counterweight to what we saw happening in florida. Especially because it was a story ten years in the making you have to go back to senate bill ten seventy which was known as this. Show me your papers law and came at the same time period. Sheriff joe arpaio Huge anti immigrant sentiment within the government of arizona and all these young people some undocumented themselves some not took to the streets they did tons of protests and they started to organize there. Are i would say half a dozen organizations that came out of that era that now for people to vote in arizona knocked on doors to get people out to vote. Sorta sold the messaging to get people to vote not just for biden but for people down ballot. They were really trying to flip the state legislature and a lot of these organizations by the way are not big. Joe biden vans. I mean they like biden better than trump and they certainly wanted to get trump out of office but it was much more about getting trump out of office than voting for biting. It's what a lot of people have called a one time biting coalition that the group of people who voted this time joe biden or not going to be there in four years in the same formation because donald trump will not be on the ballot which means the democrats are gonna have to reconfigure a lot of their strategy while next. The florida story matters not for the national narrative this election but the fact that they were so off in what they thought was going to happen in florida from the democratic side that they lost so big to trump. I mean even those of us who were covering it at new. That trump was to do better than he added. Twenty sixteen in florida etc. The he did so much better than people thought with so many many more places that it was real devastating blow to the floor democratic party. In so that just reinforces your point that. Where does the party go from here. Because this was such a sort of unique set of circumstances. Nationally and in the st louis makes it look bleak for the future of democrats.

"And abrupt reversal. President Donald Trump now is encouraging voters in the critical swing state of Florida to vote by mail after months of criticizing the practice and only days after threatening to sue Nevada over a new vote by mail long His encouragement follows the surgeon Democratic request to vote for male in Florida, according to the Florida secretary of state Democrats currently have about 1.9 million Floridians signed up to vote by mail. This November on the 600,000 more than the Republicans 1.3 million in 2016. Both sides had about 1.3 million designed up before the general election. In a tweet today, Trump said. Whether you call it vote by mail or absentee voting in Florida, the election system is safe and secure, Tried and true. Trump said Florida's voting system has been cleaned up because the Democrats attempts that change had been defeated. So in Florida, Trump is encouraging all to request a ballot and vote by mail. White House press secretary Mac Anami rejected the notion that Trump had changed his views. She said he supported absentee voting by mail program for a reason, as opposed to states mailing out ballots to all voters, regardless of whether they requested them. Most election officials say there is little difference between absentee voting and voting by mail. More voters during this year's primary elections, opted to vote by mail and several states relaxed restrictions for voting absentee through the mail. Trump himself voted by mail in the Florida primary earlier this year. Five states have relied on mail in ballots since even before the Corona virus pandemic raised concerns about voting in person, and there is no evidence to support Trump's decision that voting by mail leads the widespread fraud. Trump has gone so far as to suggest by tweet that no November election should be delayed until people can properly securely and safely vote and he's threatened to take legal action to undo Nevada's new vote by mail law. I have the right to do it. We haven't gotten there yet. But we'll see. What happens. We will be doing in Nevada on that's already been taken care of will probably find something tomorrow. Tomorrow now being today, but no action has been reported. The legislation to expand Nevada's by mail for the November election was signed by Governor Steve Sickle Act late yesterday. Despite the threat of court action by President Trump earlier in the day, Ross Brown reports during a special session on Sunday, the Nevada Senate approved implementation of a mail in voting system in a tweet following the action, Trump called it a late night coup and said it should be met with immediate litigation. Sandra Cosgrove has the League of Women voters of Nevada and says the group supports brought her vote by mail this year because of Adin should not be put at risk of covert 19. We want to make sure they have a voting option that lessons or mitigates that risk, and so obviously when you're talking about a pandemic, and people really can't be close to each other nail and voting is going to be the way that we want them to go. Castro as voting by mail is not a requirement because polling sites also will be open, but there may be fewer of them. The Trump Administration has argued that Universal by mail could lead to fraud. But states where it's allowed, including Colorado and Utah. Report little to no evidence of election fraud. Nevada conducted its first all male election in June after election leaders agreed the pandemic posed a significant risk to poll workers and voters safety, Cosgrove says For this year only the new law means everyone will be sent a ballot without needing to request one. So what we're doing is not permanent. It's going to be written into our law, saying that when we're under an emergency order Will be the election process that we follow. California, Vermont and other states also are proactively sending mail in ballots to voters because of the pandemic. In a statement says elect said he's confident local clerks and registrars will run a safe fear and accessible election in November. For public news Service. I'm Roz Brown.

"Really get rational. Get Rick the Rick Unger show. Welcome back to the rig Hunger show. We are talking with our friend Rick Tyler. And kind of taking a look at this presidential pardon thing, obviously, is it applies to Roger Stone? I have to say, Rick, that I want to be careful here. Because this is not the first time a president has offered a pardon, but it is near a Seiken tell, at least in modern history. It is. I mean, you know, we talked about Bill Clinton and how he gave Marc Rich a pardon and a look like that Pardon came at the price of a huge contribution to the Clinton library, so there was some connection to him. There was something in it for him. He pardoned his brother. I mean, you look at Clinton and you go. Okay? Those were not really very valid reasons for a pardon, but I the only time I confined a pardon in recent history. That has a political connection might be in the case of Scooter Libby and George W. Bush. Do you see that as the same situation as what we've been seeing Donald Trump doing here? Or do you see a distinction there? You'll remember. It was Donald Trump, who? Pardon Scooter Libby, not George W. Bush, whom he served under in the vice president. Didn't AH, Didn't Bush commute his sentence? And then eventually Donald Trump game. A pardon. I think that's I think that's right. I think that's how it happened. I'm not done the positive that, but yes and Trump remember, Trump has not pardon Roger Stone, either. Although I suspect you He might, But what he has done is he's community sentence being meaning. He doesn't serve a single day in jail, which is, I think what Roger Stone you know, ultimately wanted. Nobody wants to spend time in jail and now he's not going to spend any time. In jail, but It's It's just It's not Roger Stone, but the memory he pardon Joe Arpaio and that was a part Yes, because he was He was convicted and he was pardoned. And it wasn't even So these hacer no time for for corruption, and that seemed to be solely based on making him popular with the voters who supported Joe Arpaio's No law, no order. Tactics and he was coarse, You know, key swing state of Arizona so, but I you know you have the key is the founder is clearly one of the president. Tohave a pardon power and they gave it to him. But I'm confident based on on the writings of the founder says he did not want the president used that pardon for people they know and by and large, Most presidents don't know any of the people they actually part there. They're presented with people. Who I cameras. They they actually Apply for a pardon, but it goes through a rigorous process. They they do apply for a pardon against you. As you say a rigorous Prada process and the Justice Department make some recommendations. And I don't even know that Roger Stone applied for a confrontation or apart. He was just granted and it is surely didn't go through any process. So I went to the bureau processes the job part of which was a process that President just decided that he was going to do it because it's turned to politically. And remember, Bill Clinton had a lot of Enough, Bill Clinton. Barack Obama had a lot of parties, but you know, you say a lot of them. It could be traced back to contrition and mercy. I don't think you're going to get a lot of those parties from this president. We certainly haven't today. So how interesting. Do you find it? You know, we all thought when Michael Kohn got hauled back off to jail last week, we all thought it was because there had been a picture in the front of the New York Post showing he and his wife out for dinner with another couple. And and the assumption was, you know what that's really not Mr Khan, what you're supposed to be doing when you're wearing an ankle bracelet, and you're confined our home because you've got to get out of prison because of the covert 19 virus we have now since found out that really wasn't the reason he was taken back, and the reason he was taken back is because he refused. To sign a document saying that he wouldn't publish Ah book He's working on apparently a very dishy book about Donald Trump, and he wouldn't sign that documents which they were seeking to make a condition of letting him go home. So he goes back to jail, and Roger Stone, who protects the president refuses to talk. Refuses to say anything he gets. Ah, commutation think that's a coincidence. No, no. I mean, if if anybody knows, besides Maze ours, who actually did the accounting for Donald Trump and his tax returns? Um There's only one of the person who would know you know all the secrets about Donald Trump's business dealings. And that would be Michael Cohen. Um, And besides, that, you might his his ex bodyguard, Keith Something. Remember his name but home. He might know a lot, too, but but no one else Besides Michael But the idea that you know, I mean, that's pure extortion. That's just saying sign this document or your you know, he was granted, Um Home detention. Based on the covert virus. Which I can't quite understand. Because remember there so word they say they're so worried about cold virus. We got to release all these people. These friends of the president or table excluding I said anymore. Yes, The President wants all these people who returned back to school because it's that's obviously safe. So there's so many inconsistencies in this presidency. But I've always said, and I know that Donald Trump has been known. Accused of being so unpredictable. He's not He's he's completely utterly totally predictable. If you understand what a self motivations are, you know exactly what was going to do and so Having Michael Colin sign that would essentially be in India a nondisclosure agreement. Doesn't doesn't surprise me. In the least we air talking with MSNBC political analyst Ah, Rick Tyler, Rick In the short time we have left. Will this have a political impact on Donald Trump at all? I mean, I think most of America Knows exactly what happened here. The question is, well, most of America care You know That's a great question, because we seem to be inoculated so much Donald Trump, and it is all about and and operating principle in the political world, which is expectations. So if if Donald Trump Have been this law abiding, upstanding man of integrity throughout his entire life in this presidency, and then all of a sudden we found this out. It would be shocking right in much the same way. The Nixon tapes were back in the seventies. Not that Nixon was a saint. But people were generally genuinely shocked. Yeah, I think that the president but this president, I really can't think of a thing. That this president would do or be engaged in that could actually give people pause or shock or change your mind about him because this this shock value was just worn off, and I think the president understands that and think clearly uses it to his advantage. I think that's exactly right. I I can't wait to see how people respond to this. We'll get some polls coming out this week. No doubt that will tell us. We'll leave it there. For now we've been talking with Rick Tyler, cofounder of Foundry Strategies, Political, Strategic and communications consulting firm. He is a political analyst. You can see him on MSNBC and do check out his upcoming book. It's entitled still write an immigrant loving hybrid driving Composting America makes the case for conservatism. Rick always great to talk to you, buddy. Critics are here and we will continue with the reconquer show right after this one. A rational conversation. Call.
Los Angeles: Trump Pardons LA Billionaire Michael Milken: ‘He Suffered Greatly’
"President trump went on a pardoning spree on Tuesday for a WHO's who of individuals convicted of white collar crime. A total of eleven people were given commutations or pardons and this follows. How should we say troubling history of prior pardons from this White House including Joe Arpaio Scooter Libby and an Extra Sousa? There was no indication that he followed the typical Justice Department vetting process for these sorts of things but rather that he heard recommendations from a cast of characters including his personal lawyer and czar of corrupt overseas action. Talk about Rudy Giuliani. Perhaps the biggest name of the pardon bunch was Rod Blagojevich the former Democratic governor of Illinois. So get in. W T F. Yeah indeed I mean so. Blagojevich is a good place to start with all of this because it gives us an example a window into the kinds of people that were pardoned on Tuesday. Blagojevich solicited bribes for political appointments including for one Barack Obama's open Senate seat after he was elected president The selling of a Senate seat is not something that typically happens in America. He was impeached and removed from office and Blagojevich had completed eight years of a fourteen year term and trump commuted the arrested on Tuesday. We have commuted the sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail. A long time and I watched his wife on television. I don't know him very well. I bet him a couple of times. He was on for a short while the apprentice years ago very nice. I don't know. Wow imagine thinking the apprentices like a good judge of character. It's not even a good show. Well okay. So presumably. The rest of the pardons were not all people featured at one time on the apprentice right so like who else got him. It would be incredible if they were Unfortunately they're not. There was Michael Milkin who is referred to as the quote Junk Bond King. He was accused of taking part in an insider trading scheme and pled guilty to several counts of securities violations. Now he had served twenty two months in prison and since he was released he has been funding medical research into cancer more recently. Ironically though when milken getting in trouble in the nineteen eighties one of the people pursuing charges against him was Giuliani. Who was then the top prosecutor for the Southern District of New York how the turntables according to The New York Times One of the people that suggested this part into trump was Nelson peltz. He is a billionaire investor. Who held a ten million dollar fundraiser? For Trump's twenty twenty campaign this past weekend again. This is normally not how this would work recommendations pouring in from random personal or business acquaintances acquaintances at events for your reelection campaign. So I'm sensing a bit of a pattern here in terms of decision making. Yeah so the other two high profile ones here were for former New York City police. Commissioner Bernard B Kerik and a former owner of the San Francisco Forty niners Edward J debartolo. Junior someone's GonNa assume that these fellows they did all the similar things. Yeah basically. Yeah I mean carrick was found to have accepted a two hundred fifty thousand dollar quote unquote loan from an Israeli billionaire while he served as Interior Minister of Iraq. The issue there was that he didn't disclose it Carrick. Later pled guilty to eight felony tax and false statement charges now for deer Tolo. He actually never served a prison term but paid a million dollar fine after pleading guilty to concealing extortion attempt in Nineteen. Ninety Eight. Believe it had to do with a Casino Boat. Type situation. I would like to read a little bit more about it as well Interestingly as well for him DEBARTOLO was among the host of a pre inauguration. Party for trump in two thousand seventeen so to recap just these four examples. It was a long list of people who committed pretty major financial crimes and weren't necessarily the first people on top of mind for
A Complete List of Trump’s Pardons and Commutations
"Today. Donald Trump continued his full on assault. On the rule of law pardoning and commuting the sentences of several high profile criminals he notably included former Illinois governor. Rod Blagojevich was convicted of trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat vacated because he was elected president in exchange for campaign contributions. Begovic had served eight years of a fourteen year prison sentence. You may also remember the governor from the apprentice where he messed up the Harry Potter Challenge and got fired Donald Trump. We'll technically by the apprentice producers today the President Communities Sentence Response Members of the Illinois House Republican delegation released a saying quote. We're disappointed by the president's commutation of Robert Mugabe of federal sentence. Begovic is the face of public corruption in Illinois. And not once has he shown any remorse for his clear undocumented. Record of egregious crimes that undermined the trust placed in him by the voters. Nbc News Correspondent. Tom Winter reminds us are eating. A jury found him guilty of trying to extort the CEO of Children's Memorial Hospital for a donation in exchange for increasing the payments to doctors. Who took care of Specialty Care Kids? Oh but Donald Trump was not done there he also pardoned former New York police department. Commissioner Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty to eight felony charges including tax fraud and lying to White House officials. Carrick was nominated by George W Bush to be the Secretary of Homeland Security before withdrawing that nomination just a week later. The judge gave a longer sentence than agreed to the plea deal saying quote. I think the damage caused by Mr Carrick is in some ways. Immeasurable trump also pardoned bond. Trader Michael Milkin. So guy considered to be the face of insider trading in the nineteen eighty S. Milton was originally charged with ninety eight. Federal counts including racketeering. He pleaded guilty to six felony charges of securities fraud conspiracy. He was sentenced to ten years in prison. He also paid six hundred million dollars in fines and restitution at sentencing. The judge said quote when a man of your power in the financial world repeatedly conspires to violate and violate securities and tax laws in order to achieve more power and wealth for himself and his wealthy clients. A significant president prison term is required in order to deter others others receive clemency from trump today glued former San Francisco Forty niners owner Edward debartolo junior. Who pleaded guilty in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight two concealing an extortion attempt involving the governor of Louisiana David Savvy and the former Bush administration official who was sentenced to a year in prison for lying about his association with Jack? Abramov June grown the owner of a Mental Health Care Company. Who was serving a thirty five year prison sentence for running? A two hundred. Five million dollar Medicare fraud scheme to be clear. This is the president who spent the last six months arguing. He so pose corruption. He had to make sure. Ukrainian president was to by withholding credit grudgingly approved military aid unless you launch fake investigation into the Biden's and route around Kremlin source conspiracy theory tourist findings but somehow this group of liars an extortionist and swindlers is the group of people. Trump felt deserve clemency. Maybe it's just a coincidence. That trump is pardoning these felons as the sentencing yet. Another one of his criminal pals looms earlier today. Trump tweeted about the judge in the trial of his longtime friend and advisor. Roger Stone suggesting stone deserved a new trial. Not long after the judge ruled stone. Sentencing hearing we'll go on that's planned on Thursday. Although she did say Roger. Stone's sentence will not begin until after she rules on his request for a new trial. Trump's interference with the stone cases. Troubled the Federal Judges Association so much that they called an emergency meeting tomorrow to address it and joining me now. For more on the president's pardoning spree. Today's Walter Dellinger. He was formerly formerly the acting. Solicitor General and also the head of the office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice under president. Bill Clinton Mr Dellinger. What do these pardons say to you as somebody who worked in in at high levels in justice in the United States? Well I think the show that we're really at the at the end of being a country that believes in equal justice under law there was no process to see how these crimes and these sentences compared with others who remain in prison. It's the president's own whim when a president acts by Wim and says he did of the Goya Vich. I wanted wife on television that that is an assault on the rule of law. But it goes much deeper than that. This is part of a three pronged assault on low as we know it. It involves threats of criminal prosecution of political opponents. Those investigate you. It involves promises that the president will intervene on behalf of those who commit crimes on his behalf and it. The third leg of this assault is his attack on judges and jurors in cases in which he's involved there is there's a banana republic aspect to it as you said that if you're friends with the president or on his TV show you get a pardon no matter what you've done and if you cross him in any way you might end up being prosecuted and we know that William Bar doesn't seem to be opposed to doing that but they're also does seem to be kind of a sort of Ross statement of power that Donald Trump is saying that if you commit these particular kinds of crimes that are against the Public. Trust that our financial in nature that are about corruption when he himself was impeached for corruption. It almost as sort of I don't know it almost feels like a message about that too about the fact that he's saying no no. I'm going to use of dive into corruption and revel in it. That's a good point Jordan. He treats he treats very high status people as if they're high status is a mitigation of their crops. When in fact it is an exacerbation that makes him so much worse. When you're a privileged person take for example. The fact that he has intervened on behalf of someone who was this got to be the national security adviser and lied about an investigation not just any investigation an investigation into a foreign military powers intervention. Our election. He intervened on behalf of someone who has been a prominent associated with President. Said is Roger Stone Who who committed five categories of lies and engaged in what the first department memo said was a relentless multi year attempt to again and obstruct justice in terms of an investigation into the corruption and the election and then finally the sympathy for someone. Who had the Honora being governor of one of our largest states? And who is thoroughly corrupt? And who sold a position in the United States Senate? Now that's he treats those because high status people as mitigation of their crops. And would it surprise you if the after to the things that Donald Trump does as well when it surprised if he's setting up there's been a lot of questions about whether he might try to part himself like if he's ever found to have committed some crime and that would certainly make himself the biggest part of the mall. I think he would undoubtedly attempt to pardon himself and everyone around him. He certainly let it be known that if a if he's re-elected or or even in the period after he was defeated he is GonNa take care of Of of everyone he knows including himself. I think the courts would reject hisself pardon but you know no presents ever tried that before so we can't be sure and the way in which he he seems to revel in the fact that he could take someone like sheriff. Joe Arpaio a law enforcement officer who is targeting Latinos for harassment and using the power of the police deliberately against a minority group and he pardoned him of criminal contempt of court that the way in which he plays with this. I think Dolly Elliptic who some times on this show referred to the `constitutionalisation of narcissism is what we face in this country. Yeah IT DONALD. Trump wants credit of also doing first step back kinds of criminal justice reform. He wants credit for that. But but do you sense in the pardons that he's doing especially today that the real message here is his own power right that he's essentially saying if you're powerful and you're my friend that is actually how you get a justice not by being somebody who was falsely accused of a crime or got too long of a sentence for having marijuana or something like that. That's why there's absolutely the absolute absence of any sense that the people pardoned held they compared with the culpability and the sentences of the tens and tens of thousands who remain in federal prison. The idea that he can act on on Mir welcome. I think something we've never seen the president before you know. Some people are going to raise the a Bill Clinton's pardon of financier and fugitive Bark Rich. And that was the worst thing. Bill Clinton did in eight years and an office is unjustified pardon but Donald Trump is taking it to a very different level where he's using the levers of the of the power of his office in order to corrupt law threatening opponents rewarding those who would commit crimes on his behalf going after judges and jurors in. I don't know where we go from here. I think we two thousand former prosecutors not just signed a letter but perhaps to think about blocking the willing to be arrested blocking the entrance of the Justice Department out. You have to use your imagination where we go from here Walter Dellinger. Thank you very much really appreciate your time and joining me now. For more. On the president's pardoning Spree Matthew Miller former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice who's down MSNBC Justice analyst and Betsy Woodruff Swan Politics reporter at the daily beast and she's also an MSNBC contributor. So let's talk about sort of where where he could go from here and where and what it means and I'll start with where he could go from here. Betsy because is there any reporting on how much more of this because it does appear that there is a pattern? Somebody is either you know his friend or was on the apprentice goes on Fox News and pleads for his help he immediately responds to his friends and gives them a pardon. Who's who might be next on the list. I spent the afternoon talking to people who identify or describe themselves as allies of Roger Stone and they said that they saw the spate of clemencies that came down today as very comforting to them. Because they believe it's a signal. The President is sending that Roger. Stone may be next in line for this type of executive action. I thought your use of the phrase Banana Republic was really interesting because a federal judge. Us that exact same phrase in a transcript that was recently released from a closed door hearing regarding the investigation. That's now closed into Andrew McCabe and the judge literally said that the fact that trump was tweeting about McCabe so often the fact that he appeared to be interfering in that process created the appearance of a Banana Republic. So the thing to keep an eye on both the president of course granting clemency to people who he views as his political allies in part because he sees them on Fox News and the inverse of that which is the president encouraging DOJ to weaponize itself against people who he sees as his foes. And I'm glad also that Mister Diligent Joe Arpaio because they're also sort of symbolic arden's of people who are hurting the People Donald Trump's base wants to see hurt.
Trump pardons ex-'junk bond king' Milken, commutes Blagojevich sentence
"President trump is granting executive clemency to several high profile people convicted of crimes such as bribery and insider trading he's decided to fully pardon junk bond king Michael Milken and trump's commuting former Illinois governor rod Blagojevich is prison sentence allowing him to walk free at least four years earlier than expected and peers Asia Roscoe has more on that president trump says he commuted the sentence a former Illinois governor rod Blagojevich because he felt he had spent enough time in prison look what you've it's has been behind bars since twenty twelve after he was convicted on corruption charges related to his attempts to sell the Senate seat of then president Barack Obama also pardoned former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik and former NFL owner Edward DeBartolo junior you know often times pretty much all the time I really realized the recommendations of people that them other public figures pardon by trump in the past include former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio and conservative commentator Dinesh d'souza ice Roscoe NPR news
"joe arpaio" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"It's an interesting revelation to say the least that Joe Arpaio has identified an area that he thinks he is we in there when it comes to the electorate and he has a point on on how to get them back on his side while yeah I don't know I I try not to spend too much time talking about Joe our pile because it is fun well you know what it's also too much like I don't know I'm the really has a shot at this whatsoever surely does I know Janson hello there you go I'm what I thought was interesting about the this interview he did with the Republic was that he acknowledged I'm a little weak with the Hispanic community that's a quote I'm a little weak with the Hispanic okay let let's let's go back and revisit why why would he be why would they use the baby with the Hispanic community well maybe because a traffic stop workplace raids neighborhood sweeps he ordered deputies to target people solely based on their ethnicity yeah racially profiling the Latino community in civil rights cases against incense support found that he systematically targeted Latinos for traffic stops and illegally detained them let's not forget that while that was all going on with the illegal immigration enforcement policies that he had he ignored hundreds of sex crime case says a lot of them including cases of alleged child abuse involving children of undocumented immigrants other than that Mrs Lincoln how was the play well he's got a plan now okay got a land on my the Joe Arpaio plan to get the Latino vote back on his I am not joking folks when I tell you in order to get not just Hispanic voters Bruce okay but black voters as well so he's he's a case of the minority community fair enough he says he's going to hit the bars I am the streets to explain his platform that's not quotas yes it is Mars to get the support of the Hispanic and black voters are pie says he will quote bars straight to explain okay so I events in our files if the Hispanic support somewhere in the single digits and I think that that that that comment alone might have actually lost them a couple points the only place I can go to talk to Hispanic and black voters those people I got to go to the bars bars obviously they're all blues it all treats yeah can you can you picture Joe Arpaio at a bar in south Phoenix goodnight you know a bar that is all garner's what well but I don't know if you've ever been any these these parts specifically like like I think you know playing you know rock in Espanol let me and and playing Spanish language music Mexican music and he come strolling in I guess I I picture it like this I picture the music playing like don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't hear our power to the brothers you know the right yes yes skips there like that before he has absolutely no chance of garnering increase support he has some support nobody's ever zero or a hundred any any I mean that's not the only Republican running for sheriff okay there are a couple of others but does he even have any you know who they are chance I am I I'm not being facetious I don't know who else is running for sure I think I know one but I don't want to say is there no less and less I I I know for sure that he's running okay and so pens out of which home I mean I think if you're a great job I honestly do that's one yeah yeah yeah he's doing it yes and there's others that are thinking about yeah I know Sheridan okay I just I don't know I just think that I think this is again we talked about it earlier in the week because on the anniversary of president trump pardoning him gas he was found guilty of criminal contempt of court in two thousand seventeen convicted criminal why because a judge ordered him to stop these raids these undocumented immigrant rates of businesses and and Hispanic communities any continue to do so so that he was being told by a federal judge to stop he says I see your order to stop and I say hi I'm above by laughing your general direction I'm above and I'm gonna continue to do it and so you know when he got his hand slapped not to slap but he was found guilty of criminal contempt of court and that's what the president pardoned him on like a year ago Sunday and that's when he decides to run for it all forget all sounds like a stone and it doesn't sound like a very serious candidacy but there is something bigger to a panel and I think this is something that anyone that has an our next to their name and is running specifically Maricopa county is going to be facing which is the perception real or not that they are not friendly to representative of a minority community and you couple that with looking at the changes in demographics in Maricopa county and you're going the wrong direction you know and and I understand why you would say that sure if you look at the demographics of Maricopa county when Joe our pile was first name sheriff back in late nineteen ninety three he didn't want ninety two took office in ninety three yeah serves six term six four year terms and you look at the Hispanic population and how that is grown American account ninety two to to cents then yeah I could see that argument nothing with it can I get perception is reality and I understand that but I would just caution folks it when you when you're just looking at it not necessarily in in in the sheriff's race but when you're looking at it from a political standpoint of our verses the yes Republicans right now under the current administration and the White House are getting painted with a very broad brush and that brush is anti immigrant I I get it but not all Republicans are anti immigration I I again I was a trying to I was a trying to imply that the the problem is how do they stand up and say that without appearing to be look at the I have ever there's a there's a needle and I have and I know you're trying to thread there are piles I didn't think I was it a chance of pretty good at but that's why it is going to be difficult for members of the Republican Party and and markets Maricopa county of which you have to win in order to win the state like ever going to try to run for Senate okay governor Kelly or you're looking at senator make Sally if if someone actually wants to continue or if mark Kelly wants to take that position they have to win they're gonna have town and so you you have to be able to talk to the people of America becoming in all of it was on a but but you know this is where we are right now and how do you thread that needle that is a very very difficult for a lot of Republicans the do that what's the percentage of Latinos so I think America okay with with the I had the other like over thirty thirty one okay look thirty one and some change percent and growing by the way yeah ET it's the fastest growing largest growing minority population up again not that they all vote monolith of going in the living room although this way although that way but they do have some tendencies and the tendencies are not in favor of the Joe are piles style of government was going to do is hit the bars in the streets so the Amazon the forest not the website is on fire is the planet at risk because of this end why don't people care more about it is this the case of how do you eat an elephant we're gonna talk about it right after publicly gets us up to speed with our top stories.
