Arpaio Probe Offers Boilerplate Birtherism In Dramatic Presser

5 years ago by David

Arizona's Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced on Thursday that his investigation into President Barack Obama's birth certificate concluded the document was most likely a "forgery."

"President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate released by the White House on April 27, 2011, is suspected to be a computer-generated forgery, not a scan of an original 1961 paper document as represented by the White House when the long-form birth certificate was made public," the sheriff said at a press conference.

A six-month probe by the Sheriff's Cold Case Posse also looked into other parts of the president's past after they began to suspect his long form birth certificate was a fake.

A press release provided by birther website World Net Daily said that investigators concluded that there was reasonable cause to believe that Obama's Selective Service card was a forgery and that certain Immigration and Naturalization Service records of people arriving to the United States around the time of the time of his birth were missing.

"A continuing investigation is needed to identify the identity of the person or persons involved in creating the alleged birth certificate forgery, and to determine who, if anyone, in the White House or the state of Hawaii may have authorized the forgery," Arpaio said.

EDITOR'S NOTE: As Carl Sagan said, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." If you are going to accuse the leader of the free world of being a fraud you better have more proof than your feelings of suspicion and a Bill Ayers-related witness from 30 years ago. This brings birtherism to a new low...who knew that was even possible.
