It seems surprising that the announcement comes so soon after they gleefully claimed that they were more than one-third of the way to the 335,000+ valid signatures they need to place the Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio back on the ballot. That press conference and the attention it received surely would have resulted in money flowing in, and earlier pledges of money being turned into cash.
Tomorrow is supposed to be the day that the Citizens To Protect Fair Election Results - the committee opposing the recall - has promised to file legal action against the recall committee for allegedly violating the Arizona Constitution.
