No, It's because Joe Passes out Sheriff Posse badges like candy to people in retirement communities. In Phoenix many people joke iits the pussy posse. From when they helped to round up the hookers. We all know the really old people show up to vote more then anyone else. I was talking to a 78 year old man that can hardly walk and he has a badge. It's so sad.
FALSE, Joe does not pass out Posse badges. To get one you must pass a background check, join a local Posse buy ypur uniform etc and put in X number of hours as a volunteer in addition to what ever training that Posse requires. That allows you to be a glorified security guard that saves taxpayers money.

You are correct There is a background check,
He gives out the badges to old people because he knows they will vote.
I was offered a executive Posse badge. I'm ex-sworn
But a friend of mine was dying from cancer so I got him some pot. I am not a hypocrite so I turned it down. I was told they could over look that.

Who did you think he would give them to? Felons and illegal aliens he chaces that are in elligable to vote?

But do you notice most of his support comes from out state rather in state? People in az don't want to waste their own money for his campaign they let other out-of-towners do it for them, the cowards. But I guess they have the right idea, I wouldn't want my going waste paying for another lawsuit against him either.
I wish people from out of state would mind there onw bisness. I don't tell them who to elect and really don't care who they elect. Leave Arizona to Arizonans and F### off.

Yeah, Good ole Joe, 80yrs old and still thinks it's 1960.
What's he doing anyway?
He has a serious need for power.

Maybe it's dementia.

Time to go Joe.

If he lives to serve this term, that will be it, because the older population is what carries him through and many of them will be gone as well. He needs to let some younger blood in. He's starting to make bad decisions.

If he dies in office it will mean he won as you could do nothing to get him removed. At the moment as with the last few terms, he is winning and you are the loser.

I didn't think this was about winning or losing, but what is right for the county.
Winning is not getting him removed. Winning is having a sheriff who does what is right and just for the county not just what his agenda warrants.
