Joe Arpaio's "Birther" Pals Profiting From Obama Birth Certificate "Investigation." Surprised?

For the low price of $9.99, you can obtain your own copy of an e-book that's billed as "a law enforcement investigation" into President Obama's birth certificate.

The authors happen to be Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Cold Case Posse "lead investigator" Mike Zullo and notorious "birther" Jerome Corsi.

The forward, unsurprisingly, is penned by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

According to one sucker on Amazon who actually dropped the $10 on A Question of Eligibility, it's just a re-printed edition of the stuff that was pimped out at Arpaio's press conference last week, and things compiled from Corsi's website.

Arpaio's reportedly not taking cash from the sale of this book, but Corsi and Zullo sure are.

3TV heard from Corsi that neither Arpaio nor the MCSO are making money off the sales, but Corsi and Zullo sure got a great promotion for their book from Arpaio in the form of a two-hour press conference on Thursday.

Corsi's website was also begging for donations to Arpaio's Cold Case Posse several months ago, and this is apparently the product of the Posse's investigation.

Still, is anyone really surprised that Arpaio's "birther" buddies are profiting off the so-called "investigation"?
