Front Page Confidential is a new website that is published by Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, and edited by Tom Finkel. The website offers news and commentary for every issue relating to free speech. Lacey and Larkin are also the famed founders of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. The Fund is a organization that was started off of base capital earned from a lawsuit. The lawsuit had to do with how the Sheriff of Maricopa County, Sheriff Arpaio, tried to intimidate them out of utilizing their right of free speech.
The Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, attempted to arrest them in a very intimidating, dramatic manner. It was soon found that Arpaio went against the rules and really had no reason to treat Lacey and Larkin so harshly. Of course, he did have a reason in his head, though it wasn’t a lawful reason. For numerous years, Larkin and Lacey expressed disdainful views about Arpaio’s disappointing behavior, which annoyed Sheriff Arpaio. “America’s Toughest Sheriff” will always be in the minds of Larkin and Lacey because of all of the trouble that he has put them through. They have been writing about this man since the early 1990s, Their criticism of him increased even more after their arrests.
