PHOENIX -- The leader of an effort to recall Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said his group won't abandon its bid to oust the sheriff even though Arpaio supporters are threatening legal action.

Recall leader William James Fisher said Arpaio supporters haven't sent him the cease-and-desist letter that they said they were going to send when they threatened legal action if the effort wasn't folded by Saturday.

Arpaio supporters contend the effort is unconstitutional, while recall organizers say the sheriff has put immigration enforcement above other law enforcement priorities.

Recall organizers face a May 30 deadline for handing in valid petition signatures from more than 335,000 voters.

Larry Klayman, a lawyer representing the Arpaio supporters, didn't return a call seeking comment on the refusal to abandon the recall effort.
