CPFER is concerned that recalls of fairly elected officials are being improperly instituted outside of the law, are being initiated solely to overturn election results which recall proponents simply do not like, and have the real potential of voiding and thereby disenfranchising the votes of the majority.
Leftists have put a bull's-eye on Sherriff Arpaio's back because he created a Cold Case Posse lead by investigator Mike Zullo. This posse conducted thousands of hours of work and concluded that the document presented to the American public in April 2011 as Obama's birth certificate is undoubtedly fraudulent.
CPFER has hired Larry Klayman, Esq., the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch but Klayman will be appearing in his private capacity in this case. According to CPFER and Klayman, Arpaio is being subjected to an illegal and unconstitutional recall effort in a politically if not criminally motivated attempt to harass and prevent Arpaio from carrying out his duties as the chief law-enforcement officer of Maricopa County.
Since Arpaio was only recently reelected to a sixth term on November 6, 2012, Respect Arizona’s petition is not only untimely but fails to set forth any valid grounds for a recall so soon after this election.
"If Respect Arizona’s illegal recall effort were to become the norm, then all public officials in the state could be recalled without cause, thus severely harming the electoral system. Even judges could be subject to this sort of harassment. And, at a time of severe fiscal crisis, this illegal recall effort wastes the scarce resources of the taxpayers, the county and the state," Klayman says.
WND: I urge you to make a donation to support Sheriff Joe Arpaio right now – no matter the amount. If everyone who reads this appeal gave the minimum amount of $5, it would raise the considerable necessary resources to protect Sheriff Arpaio.
