Sheriff Arpaio Holding New "Press Conference" On President Obama Birth Certificate; Supporters To Petition For End Run Around Governor, Legislature

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has set up his next press conference/event/meeting (it is described as all three) on the alleged President Obama citizenship document forgeries. He and his Tea Party supporters will take over a Sun City church next Saturday (March 31, 1:00pm).

The "historic event" will feature updates by both Arpaio and investigator Mike Zullo*, according to the post (on a site called the Western Center for Journalism**) by a co-organizer, the Surprise Tea Party group. (The other co-organizer is listed as the Sun City West Tea Party group.) The release claims that Arpaio and Zullo will present the preliminary findings and will update; it does not promise that there is any new information or action.

As an additional draw, however, the organizers say they plan to petition Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett (Repub.) and the Legislature to request that the Democratic National Committee provide documentation validating the President's citizenship "satisfactory to Sheriff Arpaio and the Cold Case Posse, the Arizona Legislature, and the Arizona Secretary of State’s office". This would appear to be designed to be similar to the proposed law which Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (Repub.) vetoed last year, and which is presently being considered in the current Legislature. The fate of that bill (currently in the form of a strike-everything amendment to HB2480) is unclear at this time.

Last week, Sheriff Arpaio gave an interview to talk show host Roger Hedgecock, and announced that he would investigate the President's Selective Service registration document for fraud, and would arrest whoever he finds responsible for the allegedly forged birth certificate and other documents which were released by the white House last year.





* Zullo was initially listed as "to be confirmed", but Surprise Tea Party spokesman Brian Reilly confirms his attendance in the comments to the post.

**The Western Center for Journalism was set up by Joseph Farah, the "brains behind WND.com", which has been instrumental in publicizing Arpaio's investigation into the (very) early life of Obama.

Mitch . . . do you mean Mar. 31? I'm a bit confused. You refer to the meeting as "next Saturday Mar. 24" but the date of your article is Mar. 24. Can you please clarify the date? Thank you.

Sam, please re-post. This was inadvertently deleted when I was trying to check the settings. After a rash of unrelated spam comments, I had switched the settings to call for moderation. I was under the impression that your comment was in a queue to be moderated. While yours was not a comment with which I agreed, it was not spam and I had intended to leave it up. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Thanks Joe keep up the good work! This could save America and make Watergate look like a parking ticket. Defeat the evil wherever it hides.
