For those who have been wondering why Arpaio has jumped the shark and gone full Birther...

BREAKING: DOJ Cuts Off Negotiations With Sheriff Joe Arpaio (http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entries/breaking-doj-cuts-off-negotiations-with-sheriff-joe - broken link)

The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division has cut off negotiations with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and said his recent actions are driving the U.S. "closer to pursuing judicial remedies." Arpaio had claimed he was cooperating with the probe into alleged civil rights violations back in February.

"We believe that you are wasting time and not negotiating in good faith," Deputy Assistant Attorney General Roy Austin wrote in a letter to Arpaio's lawyer obtained by TPM. "Your tactics have required DOJ to squander valuable time and resources."

More to come...

He won't be very happy if the DOJ wins a consent decree.

HuffPo has additional details:

Quote:
The U.S. Justice Department tells one of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's lawyers in a letter Tuesday that the sheriff's precondition of not having a court-appointed monitor to help enforce the agreement would result in the cancellation of negotiations.

A Justice Department lawyer says in the letter that Arpaio's lawyer sprung this precondition on federal authorities on Tuesday.

Negotiations were set to resume Wednesday in Phoenix.

So it looks like his plan is to claim that he's being prosecuted for corruption as revenge for his Birtherism. That's the act of a person with no pride, integrity or courage whatsoever, so - predictable, I guess.

It's Arpaio. Par for the course.
