Joe Arpaio's "Birther" Investigation Gets More Ridiculous by the Hour -- Sheriff Asks Selective Service to Investigate Obama's Registration

Less than 24 hours after we told you about the mailman claiming the "foreign" Barack Obama hinted to him about a "prearranged" presidency while hanging out at the Ayers residence, and just hours after we asked our readers if this whole thing could get any more loony, it happened again.

Fresh out of the press-release department of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is a letter from Sheriff Joe Arpaio, asking the director of the Selective Service System to open an official investigation into President Obama's Selective Service registration.

"On March 1, 2012, a press conference was held in which I announced the initial findings of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Cold Case Posse investigation," Arpaio writes. "Among the findings is not only the President's birth certificate a likely fraud, but furthermore, there is probable cause to believe that the Selective Service Registration card on file and allegedly submitted by Mr. Obama on July 29, 1980, was also a forgery."

Arpaio's "birther" investigators did some homemade science projects in which they claim they were able to make their own phony stamp that looked just like the one used on the president's registration.

"Sheriff Arpaio is asking Director Romo to respond to him within 30 days on whether or not his national office will provide the Sheriff with the original document and if his office will move forward with an investigation of its own," the sheriff's office says. "Lawrence Romo, who was appointed as Director to the U.S. Selective Service System in 2009 by President Obama, reports directly to the President."

That would appear to be a complete conflict of interest -- as if that actually matters.

Arpaio also happens to warn of the penalties for not registering with the Selective Service.

"Failure to register or otherwise comply with the Selective Service registration process is a serious offense," Arpaio notes. "The law says a person who fails to register can end up with a $250,000 fine, five years imprisonment and is ultimately prohibited from holding any job in government."

If you actually believe there might be some legitimacy to the Secret Service registration bullshit, The Fogbow has provided extensive debunking on every single aspect of Arpaio's "birther" investigation, including this, this, and this on the registration card.

I have no idea at this point Real Dave. It appears to be a "wild goose
chase" to me and quite possibly a waste of taxpayer monies. It also could
be true. I wouldn't put it past any Politician. They all lie.

 You know what's even nuttier?  Spending hundreds of thousands of dollars hiding what from who?  Now THAT'S REALLY bat shit crazy!!!

First you didn't answer my question about making assumptions
of people you don't even know. Next, I like to read the fact, that’s all, wherever
they lay. To me, that is reporting the news. Then I form my own opinion.
Not the authors or yours or kwjfa's or anyone elses. When the author of the news article says something
like "If you actually believe there might be some legitimacy to the Secret
Service registration bullshit", I see bias. Ok? Also, at that point I question the integrity of the article's author. I'm not questioning the
accuracy of the article. I just like unbiased reporting.

 And would you care to point out any inaccuracies in this story? Birthers are just plain batshit crazy. Arpaio is pandering to them to keep in the limelight, and I suspect, to try to get the feds to leave him alone.

 Your repeated spam doesn't indicate being a fan of Arpaio's.

It does indicate creepy, stalker tendencies.

Do you have a "Sheriff Joe" shrine, complete with Arpaio's hair, or dirty undies, at home?

Sheriff Joe couldn't ask for those records from Hawaii, but the Posse could have called Hawaii and asked about foreign births being registered in 1961 instead of lying about it.

They could have called Selective Service instead of yelling fraud (those records are public), and they could  have looked in New York for inbound international flights originating in Kenya instead of Hawaii were the inbound flights were domestic (no INS cards).

They could have even hired a real expert certified by the American Society of Questioned Document Examiners, to write a report on the electronic file released by the White House.

In fact they didn't do the kind of diligence a real law-enforcement investigation requires -- oh, right, none of them were law enforcement. I keep forgetting...

But what they did was to gather a small bunch of birther conspiracy theorists who sat in a room studying rumors and compiling cranks. They gathered information from Corsi's book and Internet web sites. They built their report on what would have been the garbage pile of a real investigation.

 I think an URK is a fan of the Steve Quincy URKel character on the Family Matters TV show. (Yeah, I just made that up.)

 So what does the 88 stand for, Goober? Do you want to share your little secret with everyone? Or should I tell them?

Why doesn't the "Cold Case Posse" just request a copy of the original short and long form birth certificates that are on file with the Hawaii Department of Health? The one piece of evidence that would resolve the issue wasn't even requested by senile Joe A.. WTF?
