As a registered Republican one of the biggest things that worries me about Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey is his climbing into political bed with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Why would a guy seek out the support and endorsement form a sheriff who is under federal scrutiny and court ordered regulation, has been shown to be an ineffective sheriff who blew off hundreds of cases involving rapes and child molests, has cost the taxpayers of Maricopa County well over $100 million dollars in misspent jail tax funds, has 30,000 unserved felony arrest warrants in his files, has cost us tens of millions of dollars related to lawsuits stemming from prisoners being abused and killed in his jail and who spent the last decade alienating Hispanics on both sides of the border?
A Chandler Republican lawmaker is off the hook on charges he destroyed two political signs during last month's primary, and it's not because prosecutors have concluded that Rep. Bob Robson did or didn't do what's alleged. It's just that the allegations don't fit the charges.
While Pinal County “Sheriff Underpants” Paul Babeu has been out on the campaign trail touting gubernatorial candidate and “forensic accountant” Christine Jones, Pinal County Jail employees have been sweating bullets worrying about whether or not they’re going to have a job.

More than a decade ago, former Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court installed a massive granite monument inscribed with the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of the Alabama State Judicial Building. Two years later it was removed by court order as a violation of the separation of church and state. Shortly thereafter, Justice Moore was also removed by court order from the Alabama State Judicial Building.
In a case with statewide implications, the Arizona Supreme Court is being asked to decide whether circumstantial evidence a candidate knew of forged signatures on petitions is enough to disqualify him from the ballot.
“Summer school:” These two words can sound like a one- to two- month jail sentence for students in school. Who wants to sit in class while their friends are out enjoying their summer vacation? Who wants to be the reason their parents have to postpone the San Diego vacation because their son/daughter must attend summer school? Even worse, to be left behind because they have to attend summer school while the rest of the family travels to San Diego. Either way you look at it, most students do not want to attend summer school.
It was 50 years ago Barry Goldwater declared “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.” The political world gasped and he suffered a crushing defeat in the 1964 presidential election.
