Speaking in a Breitbart News interview, Joe Arpaio, the former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, detailed allegedly being duped into an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen, who Arpaio says posed as a famous comedian from Finland.
Arpaio, currently running for a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona, said that during the interview he became “very uncomfortable” with some of the words that Cohen’s character allegedly used, including “blowjob,” “hand job” and “golden shower.” He said he was made to believe the interview was being filmed live and that 2 million people were watching.
“So, I typed those notes real fast.” Arpaio shared his notes with Breitbart News.
He also noted signing a contract, writing, “I signed some kind of contract before filming, which I have done numerous times, did not read all the info.”
He said that there was text on a screen claiming that over 2 million people were watching the interview live.
