Group trying to recall Maricopa County sheriff

PHOENIX — A political group has filed paperwork with the Arizona Secretary
of State’s office to launch a recall campaign against Maricopa County Sheriff
Joe Arpaio.

Respect Arizona will need to collect more than 350,000 valid signatures in the
next 120 days to force a recall election.

The 80-year-old Arpaio was elected in November to his sixth consecutive term in
office.

He filed paperwork last week indicating that he plans to run again in 2016.

In a statement Thursday, Arpaio say he believes the recall effort is over his
stance on enforcing laws including those pertaining to illegal immigration.

Arpaio says if people insist on a recall drive, he believes county voters know
exactly “who they want in office and they won’t be fooled by outside special
interests.”
