One of the complaints I hear about Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is that he “works the media”.

You’re damn right he does, and it’s a good thing, too. His pro-illegal immigration opponents certainly work the media, and if Arpaio didn’t deploy some countermeasures he would be out of a job. Or if these guys have their way, crippled and unable to do his job effectively:

Critics of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio staged a raucous show Thursday in hopes of pressuring the Board of Supervisors to monitor more closely his enforcement of immigration laws and the amount of public money spent on lawsuits that involve his office,

…yeah, lawsuits that these protesters or their activist friends probably filed themselves…

The protesters, hundreds strong, were unsuccessful in holding the five elected officials to any promises. The Supervisors unanimously approved a $2.4 billion budget, up slightly from this year, with cuts in nearly all departments and programs, and about 428 eliminated vacant positions and layoffs.

More from Sheriff Joe back here, and a grudging MSM admission of his success here.
