PHOENIX -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has sent a letter to the Director of the U.S. Selective Service System headquarters in Arlington, Virginia requesting the agency to conduct an investigation into Barack Obama's Selective Service registration form from 1980.
This comes after the preliminary findings of Arpaio's six- month investigation that determined it may a forgery.
The letter also asks for an original form so forensic document examiners can analyze the document for authenticity.
Apraio claims he is just doing his job, and isn't targeting the president.
"I'm not accusing anyone right now of any violation of law," Arpaio said. "However when you look at the birth certificate and the selective service form I think there's pretty good evidence that there's a possible forgery."
Arpaio is asking for a response within 30 days. If no response is given, he will then decide if his office will move forward with its own investigation.
"While my office will continue pursuing this investigation, I have spoken of the need to enlist the aid of other agencies," Arpaio said. "As a first step to that end, I am now requesting the assistance of the U.S. Selective Service System asking them to conduct a concurrent investigation to verify the authenticity of this document."
GO JOE. Don’t back up an inch.
SHERRIF JOE FOR FBI DIRECTOR
Unfortunately they will stonewall him just like all the rest. But Joe does not have many options in a government gone lawless.
No options in a Banana Republic. No options with Holder & probably not under a(R) prez.
Where`s Obummer`s local board?
They would have the record also.
Official Press Release and Letter to Selective Service:
excellent post, thank you. a true patriot is rare and of great worth. God’s speed joe. Lord grant your protection to this patriot and his family.
Joe is a hero in a nation whose leaders are mostly cowards.
Nobody will back this brave man in his pursuit of the law.
Joe for President.
(Could we draft him?)
If the MSM reports this at all it will be to paint Joe and a fringe nut-ball. Count on it.
Thanx for the ping. Do you want me to ping cynwoody? /s
He has one life to live and he's living it FOR his country. Most rather go with the flow and become dead fish.
We had a press conference. A lot of people came. They were snickering, trying to embarrass me, [saying] this is a pony show trying to get publicity, he said. However, when we showed the Selective Service Card on the screen, you could hear a pin drop. Sheriff Joe
I lost faith in this country when nothing was done to stop such a horrendous crime from being committed against the people. What does it say about the people in power and the media when they still refuse to do anything? They are all criminals in my opinion.
Contact your House Rep. and Senators.
The Supreme Court owes America a clear and binding definition for "natural born Citizen"
ALL candidates for POTUS and VP should be required to document their citizehsip staus THIS YEAR - BEFORE the party conventions - and in each election going forward.

SHERIFF ARPAIO REQUESTS INVESTIGATION
BY SELECTIVE SERVICE DIRECTOR INTO
PRESIDENT OBAMAS 1980 REGISTRATION CARD
(Phoenix, AZ) Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has sent a letter to the Director of the U.S. Selective Service System headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. The Sheriff is
asking the agency to conduct an investigation of Barack Obamas Selective Service registration form from 1980 after the preliminary findings of the Sheriffs six-monthlong investigation determined that it may be a forgery.
The letter also asked Director Lawrence Romo to produce the original form so forensic document examiners can analyze the document to determine if it is authentic. (letter attached)
Because of inconsistencies on the form itself including an unusually incomplete date stamp, Sheriffs investigators suspect the form, which was allegedly filled out in
Honolulu, Hawaii in 1980, may be a forgery.
Sheriffs investigators were able to replicate the alleged forgery by obtaining a circa 1980 pica stamp and a circa 2008 date plug. Investigators were able to clearly
demonstrate the 80 (which should have actually read 1980) in Obamas Selective Service Registration form resulted from cutting out the 08 from an authentic 2008 date plug, and inverting the 08 to read 80 when the cut plug was loaded into the year slot on the 1980 pica stamp. (see form attached)
Sheriff Arpaio is asking Director Romo to respond to him within 30 days on whether or not his national office will provide the Sheriff with the original document and if his
office will move forward with an investigation of its own.
Lawrence Romo, who was appointed as Director to the U.S. Selective Service System in 2009 by President Obama, reports directly to the President.
While my office will continue pursuing this investigation, I have spoken of the need to enlist the aid of other agencies. As a first step to that end, I am now requesting the assistance of the U.S. Selective Service System asking them to conduct a concurrent investigation to verify the authenticity of this document, Arpaio says.
Arpaio says he foresees the need to ask for the assistance of other agencies as well to ultimately determine whether the Presidents birth certificate and Selective Service
registration form are in fact forgeries.
Failure to register or otherwise comply with the Selective Service registration process is a serious offense, Arpaio says. The law says a person who fails to register can end up with a $250,000 fine, five years imprisonment and is ultimately prohibited from holding any job in government.
Arpaio, a Korean War veteran who served in the U.S. Army, believes strongly in the importance of registering for the selective service. He even started a program in 2004
to encourage inmates, including non-U.S. citizens, to register. Since then, about 40,000 inmates including 9,000 non U.S. citizens have registered for the selective
LETTER TO SELECTIVE SERVICE
Lawrence G. Romo, Director REVISION TO REPLACE
Selective Service System ORIGINAL LETTER
National Headquarters SE T MARCH 16, 2012.
1515 Wilson Blvd. #600
Arlington, VA 22209-2425
Dear Director Romo:
On behalf of the residents of Maricopa County, Arizona, my Office is conducting an on-going law enforcement investigation into the authenticity of President Barack Obama ‘ s birth certificate and to the subsequent question of his eligibility to be placed on the 2012 Arizona ballot for the Office of President of the United States.
On March 1, 2012, a press conference was held in which I announced the initial findings of the Maricopa County She r i f f s Office Cold Case Posse investigation. Among the findings is not only the President’s birth certificate a likely fraud, but furthermore, there is probable cause to believe that the Selective Service Registration card on file and allegedly submitted by Mr. Obama on July 29, 1980, was also a forgery.
We came to that conclusion after comparing a copy of the President’s Selective Service Registration card to copies of several other known-to-be-authentic Selective Service Registration cards, some of which were submitted from the same Post Office (Makaki Station) in Honolulu, and in the same month and year (July - 1980).
The comparison shows the pica stamp used in Hawaii, at that time, stamped a four-digit year onto the authentic form. But President Obama’s Selective Service Registration card has only a two-digit year designation, specifying only “80” for what should have been “1980. “
Maricopa County Shefiffs investigators were able to replicate the alleged forgery by obtaining a circa 1980 pi c a stamp and a circa “2008” date plug. We believe we can clearly demonstrate the “80” in Obama ‘ s Selective Service Registration card likely resulted from cutting out the “08” from the authentic “2008” date plug, and inverting the “08” to read “80” when the cut plug was loaded into the year slot on the 1980 pica stamp.
When the person who cut off the “08” made the cut, the separation of numbers was not made
squarely, so when the “08” was turned upside-down, to make the number print “80” the “80” was pushed too far to the right when placed back into the pica stamp. This explains how the “80” on Obama’s Selective Service Registration card appears out of line and to the right.
I am requesting that you, as Director of the Selective Service System, produce and provide to my investigators the original Selective Service Registration card purportedly filled out by Barack
Obama in 1980, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
We would ask that Maricopa County Sheriffs Office selected, court-approved, forensic experts be provided the opportunity to examine Mr. Obama’s originally submitted Selective Service Registration card, as well as, any and all microfilm or computer copies that may exist of that document.
Amidst allegations regarding a potential forgery of a Selective Service Registration card, I trust you and your agency will diligently pursue its own investigation to determine when and how Mr. Obama’s Selective Service Registration card was submitted to the Selective Service System and entered into your records so that he can be assigned a Selective Service number.
No doubt your agency has established procedures for investigating probable cause suspicions when a Selective Service Registration card has been forged. We would appreciate knowing what steps you will direct the Selective Service System to take to investigate these allegations, so that together we may ultimately identify the person or persons responsible for producing the document.
Please advise how we may work together in undertaking our shared responsibility to investigate this matter. Given that our investigation is continuing, I would appreciate receiving your response within 30 days.
Joseph M. Arpaio
