Arizona Sheriff Under Investigation

The immigration controversy just became more heated. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, known throughout some circles for tough enforcement of immigration laws, is currently being investigated by the Department of Justice for discrimination and unconstitutional searches and seizures. The timing is impeccable: the House Judiciary Committee Chairman and leaders of several activist groups, who were calling for the investigation, were set to hold a rally today at the Capitol, where they would present a petition 35,000 signatures strong against the lawman.
