PHOENIX – Tom Morrissey, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, issued the following statement today in response to former Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley's statement regarding "accountability" in the race for Maricopa County Sheriff:
"As a fellow veteran and fellow law enforcement officer, I was disappointed but not surprised to hear that just one week before election day Rick Romley’s grudge against Sheriff Joe Arpaio has emerged again. Romley lost in 2010 to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, who was supported by Arpaio.
"Romley yesterday complained to Channel 12’s Brahm Resnik that Sheriff Joe Arpaio had a 'lack of accountability.' In fact, Sheriff Joe has always been accountable to the people, which is why he’s won five elections in a row, and polls are now showing him strongly in the lead.
"Romley has a history of supporting Democrats who lose to Republicans."
