Convicted criminal Joe Arpaio to run for senate.
Convicted criminal Don Blankenship to run for senate.
Is convicted criminal now replacing molester as a qualification?

He's sc um enough to be a contender, probably the favorite in that particular state. I mean in the election, not just in the R. primary.

Also, I believe he got a pardon, not a commutation. That means he is not a convicted felon, I think.

That's not a blue wave, Qdog. That would be Hillary and her co conspirators on their perp walk. I guess you must really admire my posts to take my name. Thank you for the offbeat compliment.

Talk about MAGA! Trading Flake for Arpaio would be great. Flake and McCain are phonies. If a poor Mexican family of 12 moved in next door to them, they'd squeal like a bitch, especially after the loud music all night, the naked kids running in the yard amidst the empty beer cans and fast food wrappers and the complaints about how the quality of their schools is plummeting.

Joe would be the man for the job, because in Arizona he believed in upholding the law and doing the right thing for us. It’s pretty straightforward, The people who are against him are either: liberals, illegal aliens, Lawbreakers, hate America, hate the police, hate the military, and ( lawful immigration)

Joe Arpaio is a racist lowlife who should be confined to a penitentiary with a Mexican doctor in the medical ward.

Only in Donald Trump's America.

He was tried and convicted. Pardon or no pardon, I consider him to be a convicted felon.

But you respect the notion of facts exactly as much as any Birther does.

I double checked: His contempt of court conviction was not a felony. Additionally he was pardoned. He's a lot of ugly things. That doesn't mean he's a convicted felon or that you should say you "consider" him to be one. Except you're unmoored and clueless.

Just for the laughs are you still (semi) claiming you're not a white supremacist [sic]?

That's not what you did, though. You regurgitated your usual list of about every anti Hispanic, anti Mexican stereotype you have had clamoring around in your distorted head for decades all the while, here, denying you're a dyed in the wool white supremacist [sic].

Don't worry, I have recorded your post to quote back to you when you "forget" your deep seated racism.

I'd feel allot safer with a man who's by the book than a pig like Los Angeles police chief Charlie Beck who believes we need undocumented ILLEGAL criminal aliens to fight crime. What a crock, they are the crime. Governor Jerry Brown and Los Angeles mayor Garshitty also work against Americas values. They are the real losers, and they will go down in history as being just that. Same with Kevin de Leon, a total jerk loser working against America and siding with the Mexican drug cartel. God will see to these losers, just like he did with Oprah Winfrey. EWWWWW YUCK, 50 acres of sludge for Oprah. GOOD, she deserves more. Come on rain. RAIN RAIN RAIN

What is your source for you claim that the undocumented are more criminal per capita than are US citizens, grand dragon? US citizens are violently criminal in very high percentages.(BTW, to help you, being undocumented is a civil violation, not a crime.)

Police all over the country believe that it's in everyone's interest that undocumented persons can freely report crimes to the police. That cooperation is crucial for the police.

You are a sick, ignorant white supremacist [sic].

I know. The truth hurts. But we have learned so very much from all this illegal alien garbage. We have learned that Democrats definitely have perfected ways of getting illegal aliens to illegally vote for them. We know that the illegal alien vote is crucial to Democrats long term election plans. We learned that Democrats are far more worried about cultivating illegal alien votes than they are about the well being of illegal aliens. We also learned that Senate Republicans, led by Flake, McCain, Graham and Rubio aren't much better. The Senate Republicans just passed their version of amnesty but are too gutless and devious to make the details public. There are a lot of swampers on both sides of the aisle in the Senate. The US Senate has been a disgraceful legislative body for years. They manage to keep replacing bad with bad but that's because both parties establishments have a stranglehold on who gets nominated. You either go along or you're out. Thank God Trump was able to break that tendency at the Presidential level. Yeah, we have a lot of corruption to correct and a lot of work to do on almost every aspect of how we run our government. But we'll get there as long as our leaders put citizens first. As far as the scrap book you're compiling on me goes, all I can say is knock yourself out. To me, you're an alarmist with a complex. You're paranoid. You see White supremacy in everything. Try to calm down, Qdog.
