"There is an old quote from Lord Baron Acton that says, 'Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.' ...there is no better example of this in Maricopa County than Joe Arpaio. Since coming to office with a promise to serve one term, Arpaio has become the most sued sheriff in America, costing taxpayers over $42,000,000 in settlements from over 5,000+ lawsuits with over 2,600+ just for civil rights violations--including those cases that cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars."
