For years (literally), Stephen Lemons from Phoenix New Times has been reporting on misdeeds of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office - aka Joe Arpaio. Arpaio and his chief deputy, Jerry Sheridan, revealed some interesting things in the courtroom presided over by federal judge Murray Snow. In the latest installment, Lemons nominates his favorite quote from Sheridan:
Here's my pick for the most ridiculous quote from MCSO Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan's testimony in federal court Friday, during day four of his and Sheriff Joe Arpaio's civil contempt trial in downtown Phoenix:
[In response to questioning by Snow:] "It depends on how you define, `investigated your wife,'" said Sheridan, his face redder than a pack of Twizzlers.
Such investigations (yes, there have been more) have cost the taxpayers millions (we think - hard to tell given MCSO's practices).
Scriber will track this one for a while.
