Maricopa County Sheriff Plans "Ameri-con Idol"

Apparently, last night during American Idol, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio ordered that all televisions in his jails be tuned to American Idol.  While there was a Phoenix Suns game on at the same time, the inmates didn't seem to mind.  Some inmates reportedly even said that watching American Idol inspired them for Sheriff Joe's upcoming Ameri-con Idol!

That's right, it looks like Sheriff Joe is planning a talent show for the inmates.  He even said he's hoping that perhaps the American Idol scouts will come to his jail to recruit talent for the next American Idol.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has become famous for the pink underwear he makes his inmates wear, the green bologna he feeds them, and the hot Arizona tent city jail where he houses the inmates.  He has been in the national news lately for arresting illegal immigrants using a recently passed Arizona "anti-smuggling" law.  While he has taken some heat for his tough tactics, Sheriff Joe also has many supporters.   He has become known as "America's Toughest Sheriff".
