So, Joe Arpaio’s right hand man got disbarred.
In a Phoenix courtroom filled with fellow lawyers and some of his biggest critics on Tuesday, the former Arizona prosecutor who served for years as Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s right-hand man was stripped of his license to practice law.
A three-member state disciplinary panel ruled that ex-Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas abused his powers as a prosecutor to target his political enemies. Because of that, they ruled he would be disbarred.
Now, I’m not saying that this guy is as crooked as a barrel of fishhooks …. no, wait, that’s exactly what I’m saying.
Of course, Thomas the Writ Twit says it’s all a giant conspiracy to get him. Well, bless his heart, he pretty much seems to be the expert in conspiracies to get people, so maybe he’s right. Decent people have ganged up on him and want to turn him into a crock of cow confetti for what he’s done to other decent people.
The skirmishing at the hearing would have made Gettysburg look like a ROTC drill, and Thomas came out looking like he’d spent the night in the dishwasher.
If you wait around long enough, sweet karma perches on the shoulder of justice and grins.
Thanks to Ralph for the heads-up.
