Maricopa County, AS, sheriff Joe Arpaio has been a lightning rod in the immigration debate. Now, a conservative group, the GoldWater Institute, has released a report slamming Arpaio for essentially shirking his duties. According to the Arizona Capitol Times, the report finds ...

"Judged by its own statistics, MCSO appears to be falling seriously short of fulfilling its core law enforcement duties.

"The study finds MCSO record keeping inadequate and inaccurate. For example, each year when the Sheriff's Office provides crime clearance statistics to the county, the figures are accompanied by the disclaimer that the data 's not considered accurate.'

"The paper also examines the 166-percent increase in homicide rates between 2004 and 2007, the same period that MCSO began diverting resources to other priorities, such as trips by high-level employees to Honduras for ambiguous law enforcement activities."

Heckuva job, Joe.
