I just finished watching Randy Murray’s documentary, The Joe Show, on the Investigation Discovery cable channel. This edited version contained most of the “birther thing” clip, plus two clips from Arpaio’s birther news conferences and one from a Tea Party meeting. We get to see Mike Zullo twice (unnamed). Arpaio’s campaign manager says the birther investigation brought in millions.
What I found most compelling in the entire piece was the deaths in the jail and the cruelty there. The section on the false arrest of political enemies was, in my opinion, bungled because it never said that the County had paid out millions to settle those lawsuits. That weakness may be the result of editing for television.
Many things that Arpaio and his people said seemed bizarre to me and I hope they will seem bizarre to the folks in Maricopa County.
If you missed the broadcast and still want to see it, The Joe Show is expected to be available through iTunes on December 16.
