There is false information in this post based on deceptive information that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio had withdrawn his endorsement of Arizona Senator Dave Braswell. Joe Araio has endorsed Dave Braswell and has never withdrawn that endorsement. Arpaio has also endorsed Lori Klein however for the Republican nomination for the Arizona Senate from LD 6. More information will be provided in newer posts. Sorry for the misinformation but we picked up the information form the Sonoran Allience blog which was apparently deceived by a phony press release.

By Bob Haran;
America's toughest sheriff may pull you over for a broken tail light or a cracked windshield, however, if you happen to be a fundraiser, arrested and convicted for driving drunk at 85 MPH on our streets, he might endorse you for the Arizona Senate.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who once endorsed Democrat Janet Napolitano for governor, has decided to take back his endorsement of incumbent Arizona Senator Dave Braswell for state senate in LD 6 and "Upon further reflection," decided, "I am 100% behind Lori Klein and have proudly endorsed her election effort."
Arpaio said in a press release posted on the Senoran Alliance blog that, "I've done my homework and Lori is a fighter, a conservative, and someone who will do the right thing in the face of tremendous pressure."
The Sheriff may have to re-do his homework because Lori Klein is also a contributor to WISH LIST, who's mission is to, "Raise funds, identify, support and, elect pro-choice Republican women to positions at all levels of government across America."
Joe Arpaio claims to be pro-life and so does Lori Klein, she just lends her financial support to pro-abortion groups.
Ms. Klein may have had her judgement impaired however when she contributed to WISH LIST, she certainly did on October 2, 2008 when she was arrested and charged with driving drunk in excess of 85 MPH on our streets with a BAC of .08 or more.
Court records indicate that Klein was sentenced to 3 years probation, 1 day in jail which she served in the Town of Paradise Valley Jail on August 17, 2009, Alcohol Education which she completed on October 28, 2009, an Ignition Interlock Device per MVD order and penalty fees totaling $1,460.00 which was paid on August 10, 2009.
For those who are still drinking the Kool Aid and don't want to believe what they read, the case was adjudicated at Dreamy Drew Justice Court, Case Number TR2008-162210, In the Matter of the State of Arizona V. Lori Agnes Klein.
Dave Braswell, Lori Klein and myself were nominated at a special election by the precinct committeemen of LD 6 as the three candidates to fill the vacancy in the Arizona Senate when Pamela Gorman resigned to run for Congress in CD 3. Arizona Treasurer Dean Martin put Ms. Klein's name in nomination and she was strongly endorsed by Sam Crump who is also running for Congress and Arizona Representative Carl Seel of LD 6.
Dave Braswell, who was the district chairman at the time, was nominated on the first ballot with just under two thirds of the vote. Ms. Klein and myself were both nominated on the second ballot with 82 votes for myself and 67 for Klein.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors had the final authority to select one of the three people nominated by the Legislative District Committee as Pam Gorman's replacement in the Arizona Senate and they selected Dave Braswell, which was a good choice. Braswell was nominated on the first ballot by the precinct committeemen who represent all the registered Republicans in District 6 and honestly, I couldn't come up with a good argument why he should not have been selected. He is a thinking conservative and a good family man and I'm proud that if someone other then myself were selected to represent the people of LD 6, that it was Dave Braswell.
Lori Klein is Braswell's only opponent for the Republican nomination for the Arizona Senate from LD 6 this year as I promised that regardless of being appointed to fill the vacancy or not, I would not run in 2010.
At this time, since we our on the subject of endorsements, as the publisher of the American Conservative Republican, I hereby endorse Arizona Senator Dave Braswell for the Republican nomination for the Arizona Senate from LD 6. As his opponent for the appointment I had the opportunity to research him and found no reason why he should not represent our district.
