|The media just can't help itself.|
So after an exhaustive one-day search, he said the posse found Lee's phone number -- which we found after no more than 15 seconds on Google -- and she confirmed that no such mistakes would have been made. Zullo said it's up to the sheriff to decide if he'll release the old woman's audio.
Zullo insisted that the birther investigation is not an attack against Obama, which certainly doesn't help his credibility issues.
"I don't know what else to tell you," he said. "This isn't us chasing down the president. Everybody wants to make it that. I'm really at a loss to understand why it's so difficult for people to understand that this isn't politically motivated."
(We apologize if you just laughed so hard that you spit your drink all over your computer.)
Things got a little testy at one point with the media -- which Arpaio believes has unfairly criticized the investigation. Arpaio would not address any questions concerning the MCSO deputy who was sent to Hawaii to investigate with Zullo, nor would he answer any questions outside of the "evidence" presented.
"Look at the evidence and stop worrying about who's in bed with who," Arpaio said.
However, with yet another underwhelming presentation, the media's patience appeared to be wearing thin with the birther investigation. Thankfully, Arpaio said he and his birther posse have done all they can. Now, he's calling for Congress to take up the investigation, commending his posse for undertaking a two-man investigation that would have taken "100 federal agents" to do.
How many investigators it takes to avoid bungling hundreds of sex crimes, we couldn't tell you.
Also on Arpaio's upcoming calendar is answering accusations of racial-profiling practices by his office, in a trial scheduled to start Thursday in federal court here.
