Joe Arpaio, His Tea Bagger Birther Attorney, and ‘Nuts’
Might be time for the Tea Party attorney hired to fend off the recall of Joe Arpaio to go back to looking for Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
Having just won a sixth term with just 50.7 percent of the vote, the sheriff doesn’t need any more enemies and what’s that old saying? With friends like this guy, Larry Klayman …
Klayman, perhaps best known for his birther work and his column in WorldNetDaily (internet newspaper to conspiracy theorists everywhere), was hired by Arpaio’s supporters to block the recall.
On Tuesday, Klayman e-mailed a letter to Respect Arizona, offering to hold off on filing his lawsuit if recall organizers would withdraw their recall petition in light of reports that they are out of money.
William James Fisher, chairman of Respect Arizona, sent back a one-word reply:
Within an hour, Respect Arizona’s Lilia Alvarez says Klayman fired back this response.
“WHAT KINDA NUTS IS TALKING ABOUT. DOES THIS HOMO WANT MY NUTS! HA. LET’S GO TO WAR. BEST, L.”
Klayman, reached by phone Thursday evening, says he didn’t intend for that response to go to recall organizers. He says it was meant as a joke and sent to his associate because he thought It was “bizarre” for Fisher to refer to his private parts.
