Now That Trump Has Moved On, Eyes Turn Again To Sheriff Arpaio's Birther Investigation(s) (FLASHBACK FRIDAY)

With GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump's statements this week related to his leadership in the Birther movement - the people who claim that President Barack Obama has lied about his citizenship and being born in the United States - and his eventual statement* today that the President is a U.S. citizen, eyes now turn to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  Arpaio - a prominent Trump surrogate - has shared some of that leadership role in the Birther movement, and has never publicly stated that he has ceased investigating what he is convinced is a fraudulent birth certificate.

Here is a series of past articles on Arizona's Politics about Arpaio's birther games:

*Trump wrapped his brief statement in falsehoods: neither Hillary Clinton nor her campaign started the Birther movement, and he did not finish it.

I wish I could have voted NOT to pay more millions of tax payer dollars to defend the Birther sheriff. $50 million and counting. Insanity and will be until he dies in office and the state shuts down for a week so everyone can get pink clothes and stand on the side of the road as his remains are paraded on every inch of highways, roads and trails in Maricopa county.
