Skip to comments.Arizona sheriff unveils Obama birth probe
Posted on 03/01/2012 9:16:11 PM PST by neverdem
America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff finds himself entangled these days in his own thorny legal troubles: a federal grand jury probe over alleged abuse of power, Justice Department accusations of racial profiling and revelations that his department didn't adequately investigate hundreds of Arizona sex-crime cases.
Rather than seek cover, though, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is seeking to grab the spotlight in the same unorthodox fashion that has helped boost his career as a nationally known lawman.
Arpaio on Thursday unveiled preliminary results of an investigation, conducted by members of his volunteer cold-case posse, into the authenticity of President Barack Obama's birth certificate, a controversy that has been widely debunked but which remains alive in the eyes of some conservatives...

strangely enough, all those charges came after he announced he was investigating the forgery
funny how that works
“The Authenticity of Hope” = Zero!
Notice how the ASSociated Obama Press starts the article in the first paragraph that has nothing to do with the issue.
Indeed. Those first couple of sentences perfectly reverse cause and effect.
Yes, the AP is all leftist propaganda.
They immediately try to discredit the messenger. Typical.
funny how that works
Yes, I believe it was in January. Arpaio even told the press at his press conference.
Funny, too - I scoured that “news article” for any mention of even one piece of actual EVIDENCE that was presented today, and could not find one mention of actual evidence.
I don’t think the author was even at the press conference, or at least there is nothing to prove otherwise. The article itself could have been written 2 months ago.
And this passes for journalism? I’d call it urinalism: pee on the targeted people as commanded.
Time for the rest of us to flush it to where it belongs though.
Thanks for the link!
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio - my man!
if Joe says it's a forgery, I believe him 100%, 'specially considering how many males from Kenya named 'obama' are being discovered floating around our country lately. (ref: the obama files)
Joe, if you say that both items were forged, then have the courtesy to support your statements with proof.
Oh really? By who?
Yep, right away the article tries to discredit him, make him look like a nutjob which is why liberals constantly play victim.
Jacques, the AP White House stenographer, trying desperately to discredit and undermine Joe to protect his Socialist Muslim Lord, Little Stevie Soetero.
ZOT ZOT Z-Z-Z-O-O-T-T-T!!!!!
"At a news conference, Arpaio said the probe revealed that there was probable cause to believe Obama's long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April is a computer-generated forgery. He also said the selective service card completed by Obama in 1980 in Hawaii also was most likely a forgery."
is all the "reporting" they do -- the rest is attacks on Arpaio...
Heckuva "news reporting" organization is AP...
