L.A. mayor's West finals wager? Give us Arizona's sheriff

Posted May 18 2010 2:34PM

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Los Angeles Lakers-Phoenix Suns series just got another dose of politics.



Following Lakers coach Phil Jackson's comments on Arizona's anti-illegal immigration law, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is offering "America's Toughest Sheriff" a lesson on spotting illegal immigrants.

In a letter this week to Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, Villaraigosa says Los Angeles will accept ownership of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio if the Suns win. Villaraigosa says a stint in Los Angeles would teach Arpaio that a person's immigration status can't be judged by appearance.

If the Lakers win the Western Conference finals, Villaraigosa says Arizona can have California gubernatorial candidates Steve Poizner and Meg Whitman. Both have ads promising to get tough on illegal immigration.

:facepalm: Umm Arizona does not have a mayor. Its actually Phoenix because it is a city, state's don't have mayor's. Arizona would have a governor..

Why are government officials betting on NBA games? Shouldn't they be out fixing street lamps or something?
