Roasters to Keep Sheriff Joe in the Hot Seat

Roasting Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio promises to be a high spirited, fun and frolic event where Arpaio will take the brunt of all kinds of humorous, colorful, and perhaps derogatory commentary from roasters who will taunt him regarding his highly publicized role as the "Toughest Sheriff in America ."

Arpaio will have to grin and bear pointed remarks, jest, and humiliation while roasters pepper him about his performance and policies such as pink shorts for prisoners, green bologna sandwiches, tent city and his lust for publicity, according to Event Host Bob Burges, chairman of the Legislative District 4 Republicans.

However, Arpaio will get the last word when he retaliates to the barbs before the curtain drops. "Bring them on," he said as he anxiously awaits the Dec. 1 Roast.

Roasters include Speaker of the House Jim Weiers, Phoenix Chapter of Minutemen Defense Corp Chairman Don Goldwater, Radio Talk Show Host Terry Anderson, Congressional Candidate Sydney Hay , Republican Party Executive Director Sean McCaffrey and more to be announced later.

The Cartridge Family Band known for their frisky, politically uncorrected tunes will also be roasting Arpaio.

The roast is scheduled at 2 p.m., Dec.1 in the Maricopa County Events Center (MCEC), 19403 RH Johnson Blvd , Sun City West.

Tickets can be purchased from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the MECE. The fee is $15 for adults.

Tickets can also be obtained by sending a check made out to Joe Arpaio Roast and mailed to Joe Arpaio Roast, 17210 N. 53rd Drive , Glendale , AZ 85308 . Tickets will be mailed upon receipt of a check.
