CBSNews.com reports that, for The Posse™, it all came down to a matter of “codes”:
Mike Zullo, the posse’s chief investigator, said numeric codes on certain parts of the birth certificate indicate that those parts weren’t filled out, yet those sections asking for the race of Obama’s father and his field of work or study were completed.
Zullo said investigators previously didn’t know the meaning of codes but that the codes were explained by a 95-year-old former state worker who signed the president’s birth certificate. Zullo said a news reporter who has helped out in the probe let investigators listen in on an interview he concluded of the former state worker.
The Arizona Democratic Party responded by saying Arpaio’s investigation into the President’s birth certificate is a rouse meant to distract from problems within his agency, such as “hundreds of sex-crimes cases” that his office has failed to properly investigate.
Arpaio told radio host Mike Broomhead that this is a matter of “national security” in addition to an immigration issue. “Someone had to be behind this fraudulent document,” he said, insinuating that someone within the White House may have had something to do with creating and sharing a “fake” birth certificate. He also lamented that the media is focusing on the fact that he sent a deputy to Hawaii as part of his investigation.
He said he finds the 95-year-old state worker the posse tracked down credible and “articulate.” “I mean, what more do you want?” he asked, urging the radio host to call for a congressional investigation.
Yes, America, what more do we want? What do you want, Arizona? When Arpaio’s ragtag super sleuth posse tumbles out of its Scooby Doo van to remove the President’s mask and reveal a baby-eating Kenyan mercenary bogeyman Jihadist, please know that you elected Arpaio, and that you get the officials you deserve. When people (cough Sununu cough cough) talk about what it means to be or act American, this must be what they are referring to, right? Cool. Perfect. Best news story. Newsiest news story. Tune in next week, when The Posse presents its findings on why the First Family chose a PORTUGUESE water dog and not an AMERICAN EAGLE.
And now listen to this, I guess, because that’s why you’re here:
