·        Statement From Gov Brewer: Flags At Half-Staff For Peace Officers Memorial Day  “On Wednesday, our nation will honor the men and women who gave their last measure of devotion to protect and serve the public. I ask that you join me in paying homage to these heroes, who deserve our deepest respect and to whom we are forever indebted. Our peace officers work daily to uphold the rule of law and safeguard us and our loved ones from harm. For them, no task is routine – no call is without peril. Indeed, they carry out their jobs with quiet courage and the utmost of dignity. To the officers who gave their lives while answering the call to duty, we pay solemn tribute. Your service and sacrifice will never be forgotten. On Wednesday, our prayers will be with the families and friends of our fallen officers, as well as with those who continue to wear the badge. In recognition of our fallen officers, and in coordination with National Peace Officers Memorial Day, I have ordered that State flags be flown at half-staff from sunrise until sunset on Wednesday, May 15, 2013.”

·        Last Friday, The Voters’ Rights Group, The Citizens To Protect Fair Election Results (CPFER), filed a motion for declaratory judgment and for preliminary injunction to terminate the attempted recall of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio from office initiated by the radical  group Respect Arizona. See www.cpfer.com to view of copy of the motion.
As explained to the court in this motion, the Arizona Constitution prohibits the recall of an elected official for at least six months after that official is elected and takes office. In this case, Respect Arizona initiated its illegal recall effort only days after Sheriff Joe Arpaio was sworn into his new term in office. Importantly, the Arizona Constitution has not been amended to provide otherwise. No other claimed legal edict can supercede the Arizona Constitution.
“Under these circumstances, it would appear that Respect Arizona’s attempted recall was initiated as a fundraising tool based upon false legal premises. This not only improperly raises money to fill the group’s coffers, it wastes gullible donors’ money. The scarce resources of the taxpayers of Arizona are also at risk, as  recalls are very expensive and cost millions of dollars just in administrative expenses. Respect Arizona’s attempted recall is thus an illegal attempt to nullify voters’ rights and distract and obstruct Sheriff Arpaio from doing his job to protect Arizonans. This cannot be permitted and we are hopeful that the court will summarily terminate this illegal and wasteful attempted recall,” stated Larry Klayman, the lead attorney for CPFER.  His co-counsel if David Burnell Smith.
