Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has filed a lawsuit against The New York Times and one of its columnists, claiming a piece published the day after he lost in the Republican primary race for the U.S. Senate has damaged his chances of winning a seat in 2020.

The suit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., seeks $147.5 million in damages.

The article goes on to state the following:

The suit, which names the paper and opinion writer Michelle Cottle, alleges a column she wrote defamed him by presenting his record as sheriff in a “false light” and will hinder  “prospective business relations,” specifically with the Republican National Committee.

Cottle is a member of the Times’ editorial board, but the column was published under her name.

The column, among other things, accused Arpaio of being “a sadist masquerading as a public servant” whose treatment of inmates at Maricopa County jails and immigration-enforcement tactics “often crossed the line into the not-so-legal.”

  1. I am on your side JOE – besides all the things you did as Sheriff were RIGHT ON…wish I could have seen the tents and the pink shorts….besides I love bologna sandwiches (if it is Oscar Meyer). You are one of my all time favorites and I hope you win BIG….these jerks need to start telling the truth and they way they are now, makes me wonder if they ever did. God’s Blessings to you.

  2. Go get them Joe… I am with you… someone needs to put a stop to their lies and hateful garbage they publish… We need a whole lot more sheriffs like you … the criminals should have it tough when going to jail… good luck and I hope you win and take them down…
