Amid death threats, Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio is scratching his head over the major media’s virtual silence about his decision to investigate Barack Obama’s eligibility to run for re-election.
“Getting death threats is nothing new for me,” Arpaio told WND, referring to his national reputation as a tough enforcer of immigration laws. “But why has the media has decided to black out all news of our Obama investigation? That’s what I don’t understand.
“I’m a controversial guy and usually the media is all over me,” he continued, “but when I decided to investigate Obama, the media has suddenly gone missing in action.”
Arpaio said he was also surprised by how vile the threats he has gotten from Obama supporters turn out to be.
“I’ve got the drug cartels from Mexico sending me death threats,” he said, “and now I have the Obama supporters sending me death threats. I’m not sure which are worse.”
Arpaio told WND he turns over all threats to his office for investigation.
