Sheriff Joe Arpaio loses 7th term

Voters have booted Sheriff Joe Arpaio from office in his bid for a seventh term after his legal problems in a racial profiling case culminated in a criminal charge two weeks before Election Day.

Arpaio, an 84-year-old Republican who became a national figure by cracking down on illegal immigration and forcing jail inmates to wear pink underwear, lost to Democrat Paul Penzone.

The race became a referendum on Arpaio's legal woes. Federal prosecutors brought a contempt-of-court charge stemming from his defiance of a judge's order to stop carrying out patrols targeting Latinos.

84? So its TIME for him to go. Too bad he couldn't have retired gracefully and let someone else have the power. Love him or hate him, he needed to let go. And that is the problem with government power....no one wants to give it up voluntarily. They all need to be forced out, or they won't leave, ever. Same problem in Congress. Maybe Trump will give the American people a chance to change that.
