Arizona Republic:  “Discontent with Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas’ and Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s legal battles with county officials moved to a public forum Monday and received a boost from an unexpected source with inside knowledge of their cases.   Hundreds of attorneys gathered on the courthouse steps in downtown Phoenix to protest Thomas and Arpaio’s public campaign against public corruption.  And, in a scathing letter to The Arizona Republic, the Yavapai County attorney, who previously handled some of Thomas’ cases against county officials, blasted the prosecutor and sheriff as ‘a threat to the entire criminal-justice system‘.”
