Six months of tireless labor by Arizona's Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his ragtag team of police officers, centaurs, invisible bigfoots and sentient juggling overcoats have certainly paid off big time…
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, announced Thursday that his six-month investigation had found that "probable cause exists indicating that forgery and fraud may have been committed" in the release of President Obama's long-form birth certificate…
"Based on all of the evidence, I cannot in good faith report to you these documents are authentic," Arpaio said at a press conference in Phoenix, adding that his "investigators believe that the long form birth certificate was manufactured electronically and that it did not originate in the paper format as presented by the White House."
Okay, this whole thing may seem, at first glance, to be laughable and mockable — not to mention laughockable — but this was an actual six-month investigation performed by a real taxpayer funded team of trained law enforcement officers. Not just some ridiculous publicity stunt staged by an attention-starved camera hog desperate to hold on to his brief moment of national media attention. Clearly, his department has plenty of genuine evidence in support of these claims.
All of which I will reproduce here in the following bulleted list…
Wow! That is some compelling stuff. Maybe the first and third could be considered hearsay, but all the others are rock solid.
I sure hope President Obama has a good lawyer, because I don't see how he gets out of this one.
