Feds say Sheriff Arpaio refuses independent monitor

• Arizona Republic
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Tuesday rejected outright the U.S. Justice Department's demand for an independent monitor to oversee his office's operations, saying it would infringe on his authority over the agency.

Arpaio's decision makes it likely that the two sides will face off in federal court

"independent monitor" = Surveillance and do it my way or the highway. The USDOJ has been politicized beyond belief by Obama/Holder. Case in point it the refusal to allow the states to require a photo ID to vote in the national election. I support your reluctance to allow the USDOJ interference. You are right to maintain the confidence of the electorate the put you in office.
