Sheriff Arpaio’s civil rights abuses are unacceptable and you know Joe’s under federal investigation now because we spoke out against his illegal tactics. Well, today Arpaio is skipping out on his duties as Sheriff to go on The Colbert Report. That’s right–he’s going to film a comedy show in New York today – instead of testifying at a Congressional hearing because he doesn’t want it to turn into a “media circus”.
In Joe Arpaio’s world, if you are an immigrant detainee, you should be marching in chains to segregated “Tent Cities” in the Arizona desert, surrounded by electric fencing. It’s up to us to shout, “Not so fast, Nation!”
The show is being filmed at 4pm EST today, so please send your email now:
People like you — from all across the country — are speaking out against Arpaio’s blatant civil and human rights violations. We’re taking a stand for justice and “truthiness” in this country.
