Conor recently told the Huffington Post, “Joe Arpaio needs no help from me getting attention. For years he has been a beacon of bigotry and intolerance for all the world to see. The list of human and civil-rights abuses he’s committed in Maricopa County is long and well documented. His many “crime suppression sweeps” are some of the most egregious affronts to American values and human dignity perpetrated in this century. What he does need is to be called out at every opportunity as the criminal that he is. There are many ways of doing that. The federal government’s current law suit against him being one of them. I used the best means at my disposal to do it: a punk rock song.”
The song will be available August 2nd online.
