So this happened:

Would Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann choose Arizona’s (in)famous Sheriff Joe Arpaio as her Attorney General if elected? Bachmann met with Arpaio yesterday (photo, above,) to “discuss critical border security issues.” Arpaio calls himself “America’s toughest sheriff,” and has taken a very pubic and outspoken stance against “illegal immigration” and border security, and has been a lightening rod, especially during the 2008 elections.

Sheriff Arpaio is noted for making county inmates wear pink underwear, sleep in tents when the jail got too crowded, and getting sued by the Justice Department for allegedly not handing over documents in an investigation of his treatment of undocumented immigrants.
