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.”
