The war of all against all has begun in Maricopa County

The hope/change scenario has not taken root in Maricopa County, Arizona.

The county sheriff and the county district attorney have been filin’ up a storm of document requests with other people who also work for the county because they’re trying to investigate something.

What are they investigating? They’re investigating a county supervisor, Don Stapley and what looks–at least to the sheriff and the attorney–like lots o’ corruption.

So the County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution saying that if you work for the county, you’re no longer allowed to use the Arizona Sunshine Law to ask for records.

Just my two cents, but I agree with what the county attorney says: the new county law is illegal.
