    Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio is knocked down to size.

    WHAT A long time ago it seems that Joe Arpaio was known as “America’s toughest sheriff.”

    In November, he was soundly defeated for reelection to the post he had held for 24 years in Arizona’s Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix. This week his successor announced the closure of one of Mr. Arpaio’s signature projects, a sprawling outdoor tent encampment where inmates, compelled to wear pink underwear and striped jumpsuits, were regularly used as backdrops for the sheriff’s boastful disquisitions to the media. And later this month, Mr. Arpaio, a Republican, goes on trial for criminal contempt in a racial profiling case.

    yeeepers....no wonder cons don't like the Washington Post. This article is quite the take down. Couldn't happen to a better guy though. And to think he caught all that hell for hosting a Trump rally for nothing.
