One bright spot in yesterday's election, Joe Arpaio is no longer the sheriff of Maricopa County.
Courtesy of ABC 15:
Maricopa County has a new sheriff in town.
Democrat Paul Penzone beat long-standing Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Tuesday in a campaign that featured plenty of attacks on both sides.
Arpaio, who has been sheriff since 1993, is still in the midst of criminal contempt charges for continuing to profile Latino drivers after a federal judge barred him from doing so.
In no way does this make up for a Trump victory, but at least it's something.
So at least this one county in Arizona is now a little less racist, while the rest of the country is pulling out their best white sheets and cutting little eye holes in them.
This maybe the very first time I have ever even considered moving to Arizona.
