"In some instances I have to personally pay for attorneys to represent me in these cases," Arpaio wrote in an email Thursday. "I do not have the personal wealth or the wherewithal to keep up with the costly demands of paying for attorneys to defend me."Arpaio made the case personal by targeting the wife of the judge with a private investigator, now he is asking the public topay for his legal bills. He has a long history of doing the same thing with political opponents. It is time that he is held accountable without taxpayers footing the bill. If his supporters are foolish enough to donate to his defense, then lets make sure its counted as income.
