Some government officials and activists are again asking federal authorities to take action against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for alleged misspending and mismanagement.
The group sent a letter Friday to U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke, asking him to expedite federal investigations into the Sheriff’s Office.
The Arizona Republic says the group includes county Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox, state Rep. Ruben Gallego and activists Salvador Reza and Randy Parraz.
The group notes a recent investigation found Arpaio’s office misallocated more than $99 million in jail funds.
Their letter comes two weeks after they called for Arpaio’s resignation and asked the U.S. Department of Justice to place the Sheriff’s Office into receivership.
There’s no immediate response from Burke on the group’s letter. Arpaio has already said he would never resign.
