After reporting on the unsourced tweet about a possible recall effort against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio beginning this week, Arizona's Politics has gathered a few additional signs pointing towards the effort.
Citizens For a Better Arizona, an organization that has been outspoken against the sheriff and that successfully led the recall against Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce, filed a new organization statement with the County Elections Department in September 2012. Also, according to anonymous sources, the organization has been considering an effort against Arpaio this year and is holding a special meeting tonight.
Additionally, a different source indicates that a petition circulating firm is prepared to begin collecting signatures for a major recall effort.
Here is video from 11 months ago, when Randy Parraz/CBA was attempting to convince Arpaio to resign. Arpaio declined, and instead won a sixth four-year term last November, in a close three candidate race.
