IS IT “INELIGIBILITY,” “FRAUD,” OR BOTH?

(Mar. 31, 2012) — Following a press conference with members of the Arizona legislature who were announcing proposed legislation to check candidate qualifications, an interview conducted with Sheriff Joe Arpaio by Infowars was captioned, “Sheriff Joe on Obama’s Forged Identity Records.” Arpaio referred to “the evidence” which resulted from the six-month investigation carried out by the Cold Case Posse in Maricopa County about Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service registration card.
He said he supported a “another system” “to make sure the person who is running is who that person is.” He did not mention the question of Obama’s constitutional eligibility, which has been asked since before the presidential election. Others are reportedly working “behind the scenes” to defeat the legislation.
Arpaio decried what he described as “censorship” by the media about the posse’s findings that the two documents are likely forgeries.
Arpaio and his lead investigator, Mike Zullo, will be giving a second presentation to the Surprise/Sun City West Tea Party groups this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. MDT/3:00 p.m. EDT. which may last up to two hours and is being held to provide potentially more media coverage of the Cold Case Posse’s work first presented to the public on March 1, 2012.
On March 19, Arpaio wrote a letter to Director Lawrence Romo of the Selective Service System requesting to inspect the original Selective Service card for Barack Hussein Obama, citing the reasons why the posse found the document made available to the public a forgery. Romo did not respond to Arpaio’s request, but rather, his surrogate referred Arpaio to the FBI.
The Post & Email had completed an investigation into Obama’s Selective Service documentation because there appeared to be two different registration records.
Update, 4:02 p.m. EDT: An eyewitness at the tea party presentation has reported the following:
Mike Zullo and joe Arpaio are both here as of 12.30 hours. I estimate church holds about 500 and people flowing into overflow room. The presser starts at 1 PM (13.00 hours).
Not a single major newspaper, radio or TV that I can see. There is no live stream. There are about 10 people taking video however, so coverage will be excellent unlike March 1.
Another person said:
The place is packed.
