Kerri Lands Interview w/Sheriff Joe

A Huckleberries hat tip to Hucks Online regular Kerri Thoreson for scoring a coup by landing an interview with controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio on KVNI radio Tuesday morning. Arpaio (shown at a press conference in AP file photo from January), of course, will be the guest speaker for the Women In Red fundraiser, sponsored by the feuding Lady Elephants, at the Coeur d'Alene Resort tonight. The 800 tickets @ $45 per head were going fast late last week. Arpaio, of course, comes with baggage re: his ways of dealing with prisoners in his neck of the woods. But he's obviously a hero with Kootenai County Republicans.

Question: Do you think Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a hero or a goat?
