Joe Arpaio's "Birther" Investigation Results Show to Be Streamed Live on Conspiracy Website
The results show for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "birther" investigation into President Obama's eligibility is apparently so important that it's going to be steamed live on a conspiracy-theory website.
That's right -- World Net Daily, which has been the mouthpiece for the latest inquiry into the repeatedly debunked conspiracy theory, is going to deliver the embarrassment live to anyone willing to watch.
The sheriff's office previously confirmed that Arpaio's judgment day for Obama is March 1, and all Arpaio has told New Times is that the key to the "investigation" could be Hawaiian twins and microfiche, which you can read about by clicking here.
World Net Daily founder Joseph Farah announced the live-streaming plans yesterday, and is also urging people to sign up for a mailing list to receive the "official report distributed to media by Arpaio's 'Cold Case Posse.'"
Farah, along with fellow conspiracy theorist and World Net Daily contributor Jerome Corsi, are the same ones who were seeking donations to fund the posse's "investigation" -- funds which also went to the World Net Daily/book-sale fund for a free copy of Corsi's "birther" literature.
Arpaio said earlier this week that he took on the "investigation" into Obama's eligibility to be president because he was "doing him a favor" by intending to clear his name.
The sheriff reiterated that he takes his job as sheriff "very seriously," and said he's not headlining the birth-certificate results show just for some media attention.
"I don't have press conferences just to get my name on television," Arpaio said, as we chuckled. "When i have a press conference, I talk about something."
Arpaio hasn't caved in to a few more attempts by New Times to get some hints about what he'll reveal during the results show, so it looks like we'll all just be on pins and needles until next week.
