Rallies for and against Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik are planned Friday at the Sheriff’s Department headquarters in Tucson.
KVOA-TV reports the organizer of a move to recall Dupnik plans to stage a “Dump Dupnik Rally” rally because of statements the Sheriff made following the Tucson shootings.
The executive director of Americans Against Immigration Dan Baltes of Salt Lake City says Dupnik is no longer fit to hold office. He’s seeking to recall the Sheriff.
Meanwhile, Dupnik supporters say they plan to rally and show support for the Sheriff.
Dupnik linked the Jan. 8 shootings to vitriol in politics and said Arizona has become “the mecca of prejudice and bigotry.”
