MARICOPA COUNTY, Ariz. – At the request of tea party leaders in Arizona, famed Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has promised to investigate the validity of Barack Obama's purported long-form birth certificate in a determination of the president's eligibility for the county's 2012 election ballot.
Tea party leaders in Surprise, Ariz., met with Arpaio and WND senior reporter Jerome Corsi Thursday morning to express concern that a fake birth certificate would be used to document the president's eligibility to run in Maricopa County, where Arpaio is the chief law enforcement officer.

There's a phrase for this.
I hope Sheriff Joe enjoys his time in Federal court to back up his case.

I support Joe in his law enforcement outlook but the time for determining presidential eligibility is before the primaries, not two years after the new pres is sworn in.
"What I have agreed to do, contrary to some published media reports, is simply look at the evidence these people have assembled and examine whether it is within my jurisdiction to investigate the document's authenticity," Arpaio said in a written statement Friday.
Arpaio said, while he will look at the evidence, "I indicated in this meeting that I will also consider whether there is a more appropriate Arzona agency to determine the document's veracity and ultimately whether the President's name can lawfully be entered onto the 2012 election ballot."

The whole ''eligibility'' question, regarding Barack Obama, is absurd.

His hiding it for years was beyond absurd.
Anyway a candidate for president shouldnt be allowed to hide
his BC or other papers.
Maybe Joe can look into his social security numbers issue.
