Sheriff Arpaio claims hands-off role in corruption cases

I imagine there are more than a few folks happy to see Joe Arpaio on the hot seat for his actions.

AP reports:

PHOENIX — The self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America took to the witness stand on Tuesday, explaining in a subdued voice that he had very little to do with failed corruption investigations led by his office and one of his allies.

The bluster that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has long been known for was nowhere on display at the disciplinary hearing for former county attorney Andrew Thomas.
