An administrative law judge has recommended that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s re-election campaign be fined nearly $77,000 over mailers and a TV ad.

The controversy centers around mailers that the Re-Elect Joe Arpaio 2012 campaign sent out last year that blasted County Attorney candidate Rick Romley before the August Republican primary election.

Attorneys for Romley argued that the mailer and a TV ad were “in-kind contributions” to Romley’s opponent, Bill Montgomery, who won the election. The ads called for support for Arpaio — who’s not up for re-election until 2012 — and criticized Romley without mentioning Montgomery’s name.

The Arizona Republic says county Elections Director Karen Osborne has 30 days to determine whether she will accept the recommendations or modify them. The Arpaio committee also can appeal the decision.

  1. T’S EITHER MILLIONS WE SPEND NOW OR A HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS PLUS LATER?

    SPEAK OUT BEFORE ITS LATE, OTHERWISE BLAME ALL AMERICANS FOR NOT DOING SOMETHING, ANYTHING?

    Just like the Great Land Rush of the 19th century, hundreds of thousands even millions of illegal aliens will be fleeing different States enacting policing laws. Idaho, Florida Utah, Missouri, Texas, North Carolina, Maryland, Tennessee, Minnesota and of course the great State of Arizona, who is battling for survival in the biased-oriented court system.,In swarms they will be loading their trucks, packing their families and leaving less hospitable locations. They are heading they think to other States with easy welfare pickings, with brought and sold legislators where the laws are not enforced. Even the cash strapped, Sanctuary State of California has numerous counties ready to embark with E-Verify, as a mandatory verification warning to foreign nationals you better not apply for a job here, as the business owner is unlikely to take the risk of losing his business license. Other States are introducing laws including the federal 287 (g) law to train local police in arrest and detain suspicious individuals on hold for ICE agents.

    Secure Communities a program that expedites fingerprints gathered by local law enforcement agencies to the FBI and then through a federal (ICE) immigration database to identify undocumented immigrants. Over a thousand jurisdictions in 40 States and others ready to participate. All these enforcement programs cost millions of dollars, but it touches nowhere near the hundreds of billions of dollars extracted from your taxes to support illegal aliens. The border remains frighteningly open and their is no program to guarantee that foreign airline passengers will leave after their entry visa expires? American immigration laws have been mocked since the 1986 amnesty law by both the US Government and the businesses that hire discount labor. If their was a real effort by any administration to halt the illegal alien invasion, any illegal invader would be facing a felony, not a stupid minor infraction.

    I joined the Tea PARTY as more and more taxes are being taken, to support the education, health care and other social welfare programs in pandering to the illegal immigrants. I am also an activist of the million plus membership of NumbersUSA pro-sovereignty organization, that allows free faxes to your resident State Representative or even the leadership in Washington. You can also contact your politicians through the Switchboard in DC at 202-224-3121. Their is a Pdf file “Illegal Aliens and American Medicine.”that every American should assimilate. It will probably give you heartburn and the billions of dollars we are paying to support health care for illegal aliens, that should be going in the pensions of old American warriors, OUR senior citizens, OUR homeless, Our blind, our sick, handicapped and those citizens living in poverty. This is just part of the deception and collusion of our legislators, who have been corrupted by special interests. We should bring our military home from Afghanistan, Iraq and other support bases, and place them along the US border, Canadian border fully armed with orders to fire.

    Illegal immigrant states like Texas New York State and Illinois’s, specially in California and Nevada, has no real ID verification where there was massive voter fraud through absentee ballots use; I truly believe.
