PHOENIX (AP) -

A group supporting metropolitan Phoenix's sheriff has filed a lawsuit aimed at halting an effort to prompt a recall election against the lawman.

Citizens To Protect Fair Election Results alleges in its lawsuit Thursday that recall organizers have violated the rights of voters who re-elected Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio last year.

The pro-Arpaio group say the sheriff won re-election fair and square and the recall effort is intended to harass the sheriff.

Recall organizers say Arpaio should be recalled, in part, because his office had failed to adequately investigate more than 400 sex-crimes cases.

Recall organizers say they've gathered nearly 150,000 of the more than 335,000 valid petition signatures required by May 30 to prompt a recall election.
