Joe Arpaio would probably be better served by steering clear of this silliness.
Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio told WND he has assigned a five-member “Cold Case Posse” to investigate the authenticity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
The decision, he says, is simply a matter of doing his duty
…But in the past few days, Arpaio has assigned a 5-person group serving under the auspices of the Cold Case Posse to undertake the Obama birth certificate investigation.
As WND reported, Arpaio is responding to a complaint brought to his office by representatives of the Surprise Tea Party in Surprise, Ariz., who have expressed in writing their concerns that the voting rights of Maricopa County residents in the 2012 presidential election could be compromised if Obama were to use a forged birth certificate to establish his eligibility under Article 1, Section 2, of the Constitution.
“The Cold Case Posse is a good place to put this investigation,” Arpaio said. “The individuals on this posse have been sworn in by me and I have granted them the authority required to conduct this investigation.”
On the other hand, some good could come out it. This issue has been investigated to death and the evidence that Obama was born in Hawaii is overwhelming. So, if Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse” does any kind of honest investigation, there’s no question what result they’ll come up with. Given that the state of Hawaii says that Obama was born there and he’s already released his long form birth certificate, maybe this will be the final nail in the coffin for the birthers. Granted, conscience-free scumbags like Joseph Farah and Jerome Corsi who deliberately spread conspiracy theories for fun and profit probably will keep singing the same old song, but maybe this could turn some other people around.
