Who's arresting whom?

• East Valley Tribune
The latest twist occurred Thursday, when Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio sent his deputies to the Phoenix offices of Chicanos Por La Causa, an organization that provides services and assistance to the disadvantaged, with search warrants looking for evidence related to an indictment against County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox - all done while the group was holding a conference in its offices.

That came a day after County Attorney Andrew Thomas filed criminal charges against Judge Gary Donahoe of Maricopa County Superior Court, alleging Donahoe committed bribery while hindering the prosecution of Supervisor Don Stapley and covering up an investigation into funding of a $340 million court tower.

And that came just two days after Wilcox and Stapley were indicted in separate cases. Wilcox stands accused of not disclosing conflicts of interest and Stapley is accused of using funds that were intended for a run for the presidency of the National Association of Counties for personal use.
