A group trying to oust Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is again paying professionals to gather signatures from voters in a bid to force a recall election against the lawman.
Fundraising difficulties had prompted the group to stop using paid signature gatherers nearly two months ago and instead rely on only volunteers.
But recall organizer Lilia Alvarez says the paid signature gatherers resumed their work for her group Wednesday after contributors followed through on pledges to donate money.
The recall group must turn in more than 335,000 valid voter signatures by May 30 to force a recall election against Arpaio.
Alvarez declined to say how many signatures her group has currently gathered.
Two weeks ago, Alvarez had said the group had gathered 200,000 signatures.
