More national attention Maricopa County does not need.  The American Bar Association Journal has a lengthy story subtitled “An Arizona showdown over populous politics, abuse of power and pink boxer shorts.”   The story is a complete history of the ongoing battle between former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas and Sheriff Joe Arpaio on one side and virtually everybody else in Maricopa County public office on the other side that has cost Maricopa County taxpayers over $3.2 million over the last eighteen months.
