Arizona: Petitioners claim over 120K signatures in Maricopa Sheriff recall

A big number here -- Petitioners are claiming they've got 120,000 signatures for the Sheriff Joe Arpaio recall. However, this number is about a third of what they need (335K).  I've mentioned before, Arizona seems to have a larger than average failure rate, so petitioners are trying to get access to state records to review the signatures for errors before turning them in. However, they are running into some difficulty, especially a renovation in the Election Commission's office that is cutting down the number of machines available to check the signatures. 

Thanks to Arizona Politics for pointing out some of the pieces to this story
