Arizona’s controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has raised nearly $4.5 million to finance a planned 2016 election campaign – but it’s not for the governorship, as some have speculated.
In an exclusive interview with WND, Arpaio explained being re-elected as sheriff is just too important, especially with the illegal immigration crisis and certain, “sensitive investigations” still in play.
“I would have had to resign the day I announced I was going to run for governor,” he said. “But I’m not about to abandon my troops. We have a number of highly sensitive investigations ongoing and we have a brand new headquarters building. I still have the Justice Department after me. So, I’m not giving this job up to someone else. I’m sticking around.”
Arpaio also told Rusty Humphries of the Washington Times recently one of those “sensitive” projects was his continued investigation into Barack Obama’s allegedly forged birth certificate.
