    PHOENIX – Federal authorities said Friday that they're closing their abuse-of-power investigation into a sheriff in Arizona without filing charges against him.

    Authorities were investigating America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, for his part in failed public corruption cases against officials who were odds with him. Arpaio brought cases against a judge and two county officials in 2009.

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann Birmingham Scheel released a statement saying her office "is closing its investigation into allegations of criminal conduct" by current and former members of the sheriff's and county attorney's offices.

    Scheel, who is based in Arizona, didn't elaborate but said she was acting on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice.

    Yep - this was purely a political move to keep things hush-hush before the election. There must be some pretty damaging things Old Joe had proof of......

    I will repeat what I said in the other thread about this outstanding public servant. Every member of Congress should be investigated for bribery, theft of the national treasury, abuse of power through relationships with lobbyists, corporations, and any other organization that enriches their pockets and increases their political power. Most of all, everyone of them should be indicted for failure to uphold the duties of their office by failing to govern by the Constitution, and outright stealing for taking of more days than they meet and do nothing. Upon conviction, I would send everyone of them to a prison run by Sheriff Arpaio, with them breaking rocks in the sun, chain gangs, and two of them chained together 24 hours a day, like Mitch McConnell and Barney Frank.
