Joe Arpaio's "Birther" Investigation Slammed by Ex-Sheriff's Posse Member
Now, there's a book co-authored by one of Arpaio's "special deputies"/ex-Sheriff's Posse member who appears to be saying just that.
Veteran readers of the Feathered Bastard may remember Stephen Lemons' columns on Michelle Dallacroce, one of the co-founders of the Phoenix-based Mothers Against Illegal Aliens group. She's the author of this book, along with another co-founder of Mothers Against Illegal Aliens, Michael Bruning.
Whether the stuff in the book is true is completely unknown, but since Dallacroce says the money from the sales are being donated to a nonprofit that helps people with spinal cord injuries, it makes me feel like a lot less of an asshole for spending $9.99 on this thing.
The point of the book, according to the authors, is to look into "the players and hints at the dangers poised by the Cold Case Posse and its public relation frenzy it has been perpetrating upon the public."
The book's not really written in any logical format. Sure, there are chapters, but there's no real narrative to the whole thing.
At one point, the authors even claim it might seem like they're trying to discredit the efforts of the investigation, but say they're really not. Every other page in the book seems to go directly against that.
That said, here's part of how the authors describe what the book's about:
It is a representation of how the rule of law can be turned on its head and how the general public can be lured by repetition and dramatic affects into becoming less than respectful of the law by being duped into believing someone else's perception of the truth and the facts, evidence that is begging for an affirmative end. This story points out the players and hints at the dangers poised by the Cold Case Posse and its public relation frenzy it has been perpetrating upon the public.
