Sheriff Joe Arpaio Says Investigation ‘Concludes’ Obama’s Birth Certificate is Forgery
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio held a press conference in Phoenix on Thursday afternoon where he announced, after a five year investigation, his detectives have determined that the birth certificate presented by President Barack Obama was a fraudulently created document which has been represented as an official copy of the original certificate. Arpaio said his investigators have been working this case since August 2011 after the Tea Party asked him to investigate.
“We had to follow the evidence,” Arpaio said during the press briefing. The lead investigator, Mike Zullo, presented a video which claimed to show the Obama birth certificate shows “9 points of forgery.” He claims it was copied from another document. He says they consulted several experts from all across the world including in Italy.
