Top Arpaio Ally Facing Disbarment

Former Maricopa County prosecutor Andrew Thomas, a top ally to anti-immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio, appears likely to be disbarred after ethics investigators claimed that he and Arpaio teamed up to file meritless criminal charges against Thomas’ political enemies. An Arizona judge is expected to rule on Thomas’ potential disbarment, along with the fate of two of his top lieutenants, at noon ET today.
