After a meeting with members of the local Tea Party and Dr. Jerome Corse, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has announced that he will launch an official investigation into the authenticity of the birth certificate and whether or not Obama will legally be allowed to be placed on the 2012 ballot in Arizona’s most populous county. Arizona has a state law, recently passed that any candidate must be able to provide adequate documentation to prove their eligibility to run for office before being placed on a ballot.
Dr. Corsi is the author of Where’s the Birth Certificate? which has become a best seller since it’s publication. Corsi had spoken the day before in Surprise, AZ on the questionable status of the birth certificate. At the meeting, 242 people signed a petition requesting that Sheriff Arpaio launch a criminal investigation into the validity of the birth certificate and whether or not Obama will be eligible to be placed on the 2012 ballot.
Arpaio’s reputation and his close friendship with former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack, gives hope that this bull dog will not let go until the issue is finally decided.
NOTE- Sheriff Mack won a US Supreme Court decision ruling that the county sheriff has full legal jurisdiction in their county, even over the feds.
