Who is Funding Arpaio Recall?
"Respect Arizona" Should Respect the Voters
PHOENIX, AZ –
The Elect Sheriff Joe Arpaio Committee today called on "Respect Arizona", the committee established to remove Sheriff Arpaio from office, to release their list of donors.
"In today’s Arizona Republic,
Respect Arizona chairman William Fisher claims their group has already raised $100,000 to buy signatures in Maricopa County to trigger a recall election against Sheriff Arpaio this fall. If Mr. Fisher and the committee truly ‘respect’ Arizona voters, they should immediately release the names and the amounts of those that have given to the effort thus far," stated Arpaio campaign manager Chad Willems.
Willems continued, "Mr. Fisher claims that Respect Arizona is a ‘grassroots’ organization made up of diverse constituencies. He also intimates that voters in Maricopa County are too dumb to cast a ballot during an election that includes more than one contest. Mr. Fisher and all those involved in this recall effort should show the people of Arizona some respect and immediately disclose where their money is coming from."
Sheriff Joe Arpaio was just elected to his sixth term in office by the voters of Maricopa County.
