A political analyst and New York Times bestselling
author says embattled Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio
has won a major legal victory against the Obama Justice
Dr. Jerome Corsi is a tea party activist and founder of 1776 Nation, a
grassroots movement that calls national awareness to any issue that
challenges the security, sovereignty or domestic tranquility of the
United States. He recently reported on his website that the U.S.
Attorney's Office in Phoenix has announced that a criminal
investigation against Arpaio has been dropped.
was basically a witch hunt," Corsi declares. "Arpaio actually
was trying to go after a couple of the board of supervisors that
oversee the Maricopa County Sheriff's office, and in retaliation,
these officials charged that Arpaio had overextended his power in a
criminal fashion. [It was a] two-year investigation -- zero
result. I think again you're going to find the Department of
Justice embarrassed across the board."
And he believes this decision will enhance Arpaio's effort
to be elected to a sixth term as sheriff.
"Sheriff Arpaio has persisted through all this and is now
vindicated, and I think he will win a major election
victory," the activist tells OneNewsNow. "I think he's
going to win it easily.
Corsi says Arpaio still faces a class action lawsuit filed by a
group of Latinos, and another by the DOJ over alleged racial
discrimination against Hispanics.
