VOLUNTEERS’ MEETING WITH CONGRESSMAN RECAPPED BY CNN’S “K-FILE”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jan. 17, 2018) — An article from CNN’s “K-File” written by Andrew Kaczynski features statements from activists from WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com (WOBC), which was founded in 2008 amid questions surrounding the background and life narrative of then-U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama.
The article, published early Wednesday afternoon, reports correctly that WOBC volunteers Tom Pavich and Jeffrey Harrison met with Rep. Kevin McCarthy in 2013 to present concerns that Obama’s Selective Service registration form is fraudulent given the findings of a criminal investigation launched by then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio.
Kaczynski features a photo of McCarthy, who represents California’s 23rd congressional district and supported President Trump’s push for tax reform passed last month, with Pavich and Harrison, who often call in during the WOBC radio show when it airs on BlogTalkRadio.
Harrison has made appearances on his local radio station about Arpaio’s investigation, which was delegated to then-Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo. Spanning more than five years, Zullo traveled to Hawaii twice and to Washington, DC on three occasions in respective attempts to glean information from Obama’s purported birthplace of Honolulu and to impart his findings of forgery and fraud to members of Congress.
Using the pejorative of “birther,” Kaczynski related that at their meeting with McCarthy, Pavich and Harrison shared with the congressman a “Sheriff’s Kit,” which contained a video presentation Zullo gave at the 2013 annual CSPOA meeting delineating his conclusions on the investigation to date, which were that the “long-form” birth certificate posted at whitehouse.gov on April 27, 2011 and Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form are fraudulent.
While stating that “There is no credible evidence that Obama, who was born in Hawaii in 1961, is not a natural-born citizen. In 2011, Obama released his long-form birth certificate, showing he was, in fact, born in the US,” Kaczynski noted that Arpaio, who is now running for the U.S. Senate from Arizona, continues to say in recent interviews that his investigation determined that the birth certificate image “is fake.”
Between March 2012 and December 2016, Zullo held three press conferences regarding the status of the investigation, which found after only six months that the “long-form” image is fraudulent and the Selective Service registration form a “hard-copy forgery.”
Kaczynski reported that he interviewed both Harrison and Pavich about the meeting and quoted the latter as having said, “I played to him the sections (of the video) showing the forged Selective Service card and the question about the postal stamp, how the postal stamp was forged, and congressman McCarthy’s jaw dropped. He just couldn’t believe that he hadn’t heard of that and he thanked me for bringing that to his attention and he told me he would look into it.”
On Wednesday afternoon, The Post & Email contacted WOBC founder Mike Volin, who said Kaczynski reached out to him by phone last week to locate Pavich and Harrison.
Volin said that early Wednesday afternoon, he received notification that a large influx of traffic from the Washington, DC area arrived on his website, just after which he received a link to the story from Kaczynski, then Pavich and Harrison. “This is probably how it happened,” Volin told The Post & Email. “The article came out; DC got wind of it, started coming to the website; Tom got the email from the reporter, sent me the email; the reporter sent me an email; my site kept getting hits, and within a half-hour, I figured it out.”
Of the CNN article and its exposure of the forgeries, Volin said, “This is exciting. It’s the biggest thing that’s happened in a couple years.”
