From Arpaio's statement:
“The Obama administration has filed three lawsuits against Arizona in the last few weeks ... one against a college district, one against the state of Arizona and now one against my office. Each lawsuit centers on something to do with alleged racial discrimination.How can you not LOVE this guy?! It doesn't take long for Arpaio to get his gloves off either. In the very next paragraph, he makes it clear what he thinks of this administration and the implication is that it's made up of liars and backstabbers.
These actions make it abundantly clear that Arizona, including this Sheriff, IS Washington’s new whipping boy. Now it’s time to take the gloves off.
They smiled in our faces and then stabbed us in the back with this lawsuit. The Obama administration intended to sue us all along, no matter what we did to try to avert it. Washington isn’t playing fair and it’s time Americans everywhere wake up and see this administration for what it really is. Calculating, underhanded at times and certainly not looking out for the best interests of the legal citizens residing in this country.Obviously, the DOJ and Obama think Arpaio is acting stupidly. The claim is that Arapio's office is withholding documents. Arpaio's office is claiming they couldn't have been anymore transparent. Based on the Obama administration's track record with respect to transparency, who do YOU believe?
Be sure to read the whole thing, including the statement from Arpaio's attorney.
