Editorial: No pardon for Arpaio

Then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is joined by Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, at a campaign event in Marshalltown, Iowa. Trump is considering pardoning the former sheriff's recent criminal conviction for disobeying a judge's order in an immigration case. The prospect of absolving Arpaio has fueled speculation that Trump will issue his first pardon when he comes to Phoenix next week for a rally.
