The effort to recall Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is approaching its last month needing more than 130,000 valid petition signatures to force an election.
Organizers of the recall effort on Monday said they have collected 200,359 signatures, still far short of the 335,000 signatures they are required to file by May 30 to force Arpaio into a recall election.
Arpaio’s campaign manager, Chad Willems, said Monday’s announcement was another fundraising stunt for the recall campaign. Willems countered with an offer of his own:
“Both sides agree to hire an independent auditor to determine exactly how many signatures have been collected, how many of those signatures are valid, and how many are invalid,” Willems said.
“If the numbers Respect Arizona released today are correct, the Arpaio campaign will pay for the audit.”
