Ladies and Gentlemen, do you know what a man of integrity does when he finds out he has been LIED to? This is an announcement I received via email from the Sessions campaign and it is MY pleasure to share it with ALL of my readers.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio drops his endorsement of TEA Party candidate Katrina Pierson
WASHINGTON – Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona withdrew his endorsement of tea party congressional candidate Katrina Pierson on Saturday, asserting that she had “misled” him about Rep. Pete Sessions’ views on immigration.
He also threw his support to Sessions, R-Dallas, in Tuesday’s primary.
“I was told by Ms. Pierson and her supporters that Pete Sessions was in favor of weakening our nation’s immigration system and was a supporter of amnesty. I’ve since found out that couldn’t be further from the truth,” Arpaio said in a written statement the Sessions campaign planned to release later today.
“Pete has been a consistent voice for law enforcement and strong proponent of border security issues throughout his nine terms of service in Congress.”
Arpaio spokesman Brian Murray confirmed the switch.
The Pierson campaign publicized the sheriff’s endorsement in an email to supporters on Thursday afternoon. In the release, Arpaio — sheriff of Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix — lauded Pierson for her support for the enforcement of immigration laws and painted Sessions as weak.
Bruce Harvie, a Sessions spokesman, said the botched endorsement was indicative of the “lies and distortions” fueling the Pierson campaign.
“Ms. Pierson should be ashamed for misleading an individual of such great respect in the law enforcement community and as a national conservative leader,” he said.
Arpaio is known in conservative circles for being an immigration hardliner and a strong supporter of the notion that President Barack Obama forged his birth certificate.
Pete Sessions for Congress
I know what Katrina Pierson thinks of ME; according to her I am a RACIST, not because I have EVER published a racial slur against her but because I tell the truth about her and her campaign of LIES and deception. I wonder what she says about Sheriff Joe now?
The House of LIES is coming down Katrina, you can fool some of the people some of the time but ANY decent Cop can see through you and see what you REALLY are. Sheriff Joe is not just a *decent* Cop, he is an outstanding Law Officer, and now there’s a solid voice of Conservatism speaking out against you.
How soon before this story gets to Sarah Palin and the voters of Texas 32??
