Default Arpaio suggests Flake committed treason, calls for limits on criticizing president

Once again, showing that despite being a sheriff for years, he does not have even the most fundamental grasp on the law or Constitutional rights.

Him going full birther, by his standards was treason too, right?

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -
Former Maricopa County Sheriff and current Senate candidate Joe Arpaio suggested Sen. Jeff Flake, the senator whose seat he hopes to fill, may have committed treason Wednesday morning when he delivered a scathing rebuke of President Donald Trump.

Arpaio also suggested curbing the First Amendment by saying there should be limits on criticizing elected officials.

"I don't know if Sen. Flake should make some comments against our commander in chief, I'm not saying, it could be considered by some a borderline treason type situation," Arpaio said Wednesday morning.

The controversial former lawman, who was convicted of criminal contempt of court and then pardoned by Trump, surprised many by throwing his hat into the ring for U.S. Senate.

In his announcement, Arpaio, who is 85, said he was running to advance Trump's "Make American Great Again" agenda.

He is running against former state lawmaker Kelli Ward and Congresswoman Martha McSally for the Republican nomination and may have offered the most spirited defense of the president.

Ward posted a statement on Twitter calling Flake's speech an "embarrassment” for (Arizona)," while Arpaio also called for limits on criticizing elected officials.

When asked if Flake and the public have the right to call out their government as well as their president, Arpaio responded by saying, "within reason."

The Arpaio statement doesn't support the lurid article title. Some might consider rants like Flake's delivered from the safety of the Senate floor "borderline treason" is not calling for limits on free speech.

Flake is not the first Senator to use the chamber for hate filled false attacks, Harry Reid openly boasted about his lies on the Senate floor getting Obama elected. Of course the sacred right to criticize Republicans is the new free speech.
