On August 25, 2017, as Hurricane Harvey was barreling into the Texas coast, President Trump pardoned Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. In response, the Phoenix New Times published a series of tweets demonstrating just what a bigoted, evil monster Arpaio is.
We’ve collected them here — along with facts from other sources — for you to share with your MoCs. (Refresh the page to see a new Arpaio fact.) When you call, use one of these facts and demand that your rep immediately denounce Trump’s profound disrespect for the rule of law. This pardon is unacceptable, and sets an extremely dangerous precedent.
Founding Father and fourth President of the United States James Madison wrote that abuse of presidential pardon would be grounds for impeachment. It’s time our reps started acting like it.
