Arizona made the decision to vote Maricopa County Sherriff Joe Arpaio out of office. Which means his sixth term will be his last. He has been labeled as America’s toughest sheriff. But now he might have another federal job lined up.
Arpaio is currently facing criminal charges of contempt which has to do with a racial profiling case. This is a several year long problem. Now Arpaio is rumored to be on the short list of Donald Trump’s candidates to lead the Department of Homeland Security. The former post holder is former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano.
This was reported by ABC News.

It’s rumored that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will also be having a cabinet position of some sort. He had been on the vice presidential short list.
Arpaio is much older. He is 84 years old. He is known for forcing inmates to wear pink underwear and force feeding them bologna sandwiches. He is well known as an immigration enforcer. Specifically cracking down on illegal immigration. The Sheriffs Office arrested dozens of immigrants using false Ids to get jobs.
He is also a staunch supporter of Trump. Back in January he endorsed. Back in October was when he was official to charged with contempt. He has appeared at local but not federal rallies for Trump and spoke at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio this past summer.
He spent twenty five years with the Drug Enforcement Administration before his current line of work. As a young man he was enlisted in the army during the 1950s with the military police. Shortly after he had a stint as a Las Vegas police officer before going on to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Clearly he has had a wide array of experience. It isn’t like he is inept at doing the job.
