"Maricopa County Treasurer Charles "Hos" Hoskins wants something simple from
the elected county officials who are looking for a big "pain and suffering"
payout from taxpayers.
Verify that the claims these elected officials are seeking -- in the case of
Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox, $975,000 -- are justified.
Declaring he has no intention of serving as a "rubber stamp" for county
administrators, Hoskins has asked County Attorney Bill Montgomery for a
legal opinion regarding what, exactly, constitutes proper compensation to an
elected county official who has been maltreated by other county officials,
namely Sheriff Joe Arpaio and now-disbarred former County Attorney Andrew
It is a fair question. Hoskins must sign off on compensation for claims made
by elected officials, and the huge claims filed by both Wilcox and
Supervisor Don Stapley deserve close scrutiny.
Both officials, for example, argue that the infamous civil racketeering
charge levied against them and other top county officials by Arpaio and
Thomas were ruinous to their careers and reputations. Wilcox said the
"intimidating" charge harmed her "emotionally and economically."
Really? The infamous federal racketeering charges filed Dec. 1, 2009, were
almost universally mocked and condemned from the moment they were filed.
They were so outlandish that their filing became the anchor argument in the
just-completed disbarment cases against Thomas and his top aide, Lisa
There are elected officials in Phoenix predicting that the Feds will
indict Sheriff Joe for abuse of power sometime in the next month. He's lost
a lot of allies lately. I suspect the birther nonsense is something Sheriff
Joe is going to use to claim that he's a victim. There are a lot of
"victims" in the GOP these days.
