Sheriff Arpaio’s Detectives Concentrate Investigation on Hawaii
As Sheriff Joe fields attempts by Attorney General Eric Holder to stifle his investigation, lead investigator, Mike Zullo pushes further all the way to the home ground of the Hawaii officials.
In an undying effort to succeed in getting to the bottom of the Obama eligibility question, the cold case posse is now scouring Hawaii state records for clues in determining if the Obama long form birth certificate really exists.
When Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced that his detectives would go all the way to Hawaii to pursue the case, the Arizona state government found itself flooded with emails by concerned citizens who wanted answers. The question of whether or not Obama would even appear on the state ballot for the 2012 election campaign was now in doubt, and rightfully so. This as Eric Holder’s DOJ proposed the appointment of a federal inspector who would basically strip Sheriff Arpaio of his authority in determining if immigration enforcement would be appropriate. Sheriff Joe defied the US Attorney General’s office and negotiations between the two broke down.
Arizona citizens who supported Governor Jan Brewer’s SB 1070 bill to enforce federal immigration law through state efforts were also seeking disqualification of President Obama from the Arizona state ballot. They looked to the evidence produced by Arpaio’s cold case posse to validate their argument. Mike Zullo feels that the state of Hawaii has changed their position on allowing court appointed officers into their archive vaults to view an originally issued long form birth certificate, but are his impressions substantiated?
Meanwhile Secretary of State for Arizona, Ken Bennett has not allowed either the citizens of Arizona or the weight of evidence being produced by Arpaio’s cold case posse to affect his decision to accept President Obama on the state’s ballot for the 2012 election. It seems that cowardice has allowed a Republican secretary of state to ignore the evidence. Bennett after talking to Hawaiian officials has decided to accept their verbal assurances over Sheriff Joe’s hard fought evidence that has been drawn from more than a 9 month investigation.
Lead investigator, Mike Zullo, has vowed that regardless of how Secretary of State, Ken Bennett, betrayed the trust of Arizona citizens, the cold case posse will soldier on. The Maricopa County Sheriff has vowed to finish his query above and beyond political pressure and will not cease the investigation prematurely. Regardless of going to court against Eric Holder’s DOJ, Sheriff Joe will continue what he believes is right and in the realm of his duty on behalf of his constituents.
It is already likely that the Sheriff’s determination of fraud over Obama’s birth certificate and draft card will be upheld thus putting the sheriff’s office in direct opposition to the state government since Bennett has gone back on his word. The Secretary of State had promised in weeks prior that he would remove the President from the state ballot if the evidence proved compelling. Ken Bennett had even admitted to being miffed at the delay in response to his request for evidence of the existence of Obama’s birth certificate. Then came the back stabbing reversal of a promise made to the citizens of Arizona. In view of the widespread corruption now prevalent in the American government? Could we ever have expected one political leader to actually come forth and stand behind his word? Obviously not.
It will be interesting to see if Mike Zullo and the cold case posse are able to produce any interesting findings or if Hawaiian state officials decide to finally comply with requests for the evidence. This could finally resolve the question of Obama’s true place of birth, or merely prolong the frustrating journey into the further corruption of the American political machine.
