Arizona members of Congress ask president not to pardon Arpaio

By Jim Cross | KTAR

A trio of Arizona Democratic members of the U.S. Congress have asked President Donald Trump not to issue a pardon to former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

A fourth said Arpaio must be held accountable.

U.S. Reps. Ruben Gallego, Raul Grijalva and Tom O’Halleran sent a letter to Trump, urging him not to absolve the 85-year-old who was convicted of criminal contempt last month.

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema released a statement that read, “Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio hurt Arizonans and cost taxpayers a great amount of grief and money. He must be held accountable for his actions. No one is above the law.”
