County In-fighting continues

The Maricopa County Attorney's office wants to prosecute Supervisor Don Stapley so badly that they are trying to break procurement rules. As a result, the Board of Supervisors is not willing to approve the special prosecutors.

Needless to say, the action was not taken lightly by the attorney's office who compared the board's actions to investigations on former President Richard Nixon. This back and forth is just the latest in the long string of in-fighting.

Meanwhile, Sheriff Joe has briefly left his partner in crime, Andrew Thomas, to wage the internal battle, so that the Sheriff can try to stand toe to toe with the Federal Government. The sheriff has become sort of like Mike Tyson or Charles Barkley, you never really know what he is going to accuse, and they all become so much bigger than life that you can't really even be surprised anymore.
