Controversial figure and former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio lost his bid for reelection in one of the more positive aspects of Election 2016. But while many were expecting to never hear from the outspoken Arpaio ever again — at least not in an official sense — but that now might not be the case. Instead of riding off into the sunset, now Arpaio might find sanctuary in the Trump administration and it might be in a very powerful position according to ABC News:
Trump’s transition team is being headed up by Christie, and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has reportedly been deeply involved in that, along with many other aspects of the campaign.
ABC News reporting and analysis points to businessman Carl Icahn or the Trump campaign’s national finance chairman, Steve Mnuchin, as possible treasury secretary options.
Giuliani or Sheriff Joe Arpaio could be the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, and Christie has long been seen as a contender for attorney general.
