Arizona Judge Tells Sheriff "Reveal Password Or Face Contempt"

mordors9 Re:Summary doesn't make it clear... (624 comments)

He is also extremely popular with his constituents, who fully support the way he operates his office. The US Justice Department now has him as a target (since the Obama Administration came to power) due to his enforcement of Immigration laws. In Arizona he polls 11 points higher than Obama so he is popular statewide.

mordors9 Re:News Flash! Civil Servants Corrupt! News @ 11:0 (1057 comments)

mordors9 Not Hackers? (276 comments)
