Sheriff Joe Arpaio | Obama Birth Certificate | Cold Case Posse | The Daily Caller

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona has appointed a “cold case posse” to determine whether President Barack Obama was actually born in the United States.

The news was first reported by World Net Daily, an online publication that has doggedly pursued conspiracy theories about the president’s birth.

Sgt. Jesse Spurgin, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, confirmed the news to The Daily Caller on Tuesday.

Spurgin explained that the tough-on-crime Arizona sheriff is tasking the posse with examining documents provided to Arpaio by author Jerome Corsi.

The goal of the inquest “is to determine whether there appears to be enough evidence to move forward with an investigation” or “whether another governmental entity might be a better choice to investigate these claims,” Spurgin explained.

The county’s cold case posse “consists of 40 non-compensated (volunteer) members,” Spurgin said, “many of whom have professional law enforcement backgrounds.”
