"We can only assume that bigotry runs thick through the county, and enough people there figure it's just fine to treat Hispanics as subhuman, including refusing to investigate sex crimes perpetrated against Hispanics (well documented before his last electoral victory) that they don't mind casting their ballots for him."

As a resident of Maricopa County, I find that a little unfair. Most people pay no attention whatsoever to the election of a new sheriff, and Arpaio has name recognition. If you're there to vote on something else and haven't researched the candidates for sheriff's office, then 9 times out of 10, you're going to pick the name you recognize.

It's not bigotry, it's apathy. Which may be worse, but, still.
