A recent episode of The Show featured an interview about Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb, who is extremely popular in the area but is making others uncomfortable because of his associations with certain organizations.

One of those organizations is the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) , which the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has labeled an anti-government extremist group.

The ADL recently released a report about the CSPOA and its leader, former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack. The report is subtitled, "How Extremists Are Successfully Infiltrating Law Enforcement."

To learn more about the ADL’s concerns, The Show spoke with Marc Krell, the associate regional director of ADL-Arizona.
