Meet Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "tenacious field general", chief deputy David Hendershott. In the past year, Hendershott orchestrated numerous lawsuits against the county board and launched criminal investigations against two supervisors. He ordered the arrest of Supervisor Don Stapley, who was handcuffed in a county parking garage and booked into jail in September but not yet charged in that case. In addition, Hendershott directed a weekend interrogation of 37 county employees at their homes this summer, and he has filed State Bar of Arizona complaints against three county employees who have tangled with the sheriff. He's also leading an effort to strip control from the board and put Maricopa County under a court-appointed receiver. As long as Sheriff Joe gets the publicity everything is fine. (7 of 6)
