According to the ABA Journal, John Gleason, head of the Colorado Supreme Court disciplinary authority, has been appointed by the Arizona Supreme court to conduct the disciplinary investigations into County Attorney Andrew Thomas and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. This is a particularly astute move by the Arizona Supreme Court in light of the vicious fighting and claims of conflict of interest.
Additionally the Arizona Repubic is reporting that one of the Maricopa County Judges frivolously sued by Thomas and Arpaio for racketeering is now contemplating a malicious prosecution lawsuit.
Finally, one of the County officials who has been repeatedly indicted by County Attorney on trumped up charges brought by Arpaio and Thomas, only to have visiting Judges dismiss the indictiments--County supervisor, Don Stapley has called Arpaio and Thomas, "evil."
Fear seems to be striking out in Maricopa County. The Stalinist terror has come to an end.
