Joseph Michael Arpaio is an 85-year-old former American law enforcement officer who was the elected Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, from 1993 through 2016. Referring to himself as “America’s Toughest Sheriff”, Arpaio took an outspoken stance against illegal immigration. In 2010, he became a flashpoint for opposition to Arizona’s SB1070 anti-illegal immigrant law, which was largely struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court. Arpaio is also known for his investigation of former U.S. President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, and his continuing claim that it is forged.

Arpaio has been accused of various types of misconduct, including abuse of power; misuse of funds; failure to investigate sex crimes; improper clearance of cases; unlawful enforcement of immigration laws; and election law violations. A Federal court monitor was appointed to oversee his office’s operations because of complaints of racial profiling. The U.S. Department of Justice concluded that Arpaio oversaw the worst pattern of racial profiling in U.S. history and subsequently filed suit against him for unlawful discriminatory police conduct. However, newly-elected unhinged President Trump is teasing that he will be pardoning Arpaio.

In November 2016, Arpaio lost re-election to Democrat Paul Penzone, who succeeded him as sheriff on January 1, 2017.
