(Phoenix, AZ) Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has sent a letter to the Director of
the U.S. Selective Service System headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. The Sheriff is
asking the agency to conduct an investigation of Barack Obama’s Selective Service
registration form from 1980 after the preliminary findings of the Sheriff’s six-monthlong investigation determined that it may be a forgery.
The letter also asked Director Lawrence Romo to produce the original form so
forensic document examiners can analyze the document to determine if it is authentic.
Because of inconsistencies on the form itself including an unusually incomplete date
stamp, Sheriff’s investigators suspect the form, which was allegedly filled out in
Honolulu, Hawaii in 1980, may be a forgery.
Sheriff’s investigators were able to replicate the alleged forgery by obtaining a circa
1980 pica stamp and a circa “2008” date plug. Investigators were able to clearly
demonstrate the “80” (which should have actually read 1980) in Obama’s Selective
Service Registration form resulted from cutting out the “08” from an authentic “2008”
date plug, and inverting the “08” to read “80” when the cut plug was loaded into the
year slot on the 1980 pica stamp. (see form attached)
Sheriff Arpaio is asking Director Romo to respond to him within 30 days on whether
or not his national office will provide the Sheriff with the original document and if his
office will move forward with an investigation of its own.
Joe Arpaio is a sheriff second and an attention whore first. Remember, this is the guy that's did a reality show with Steven Seagal. And this manufactured investigation into Barack Obama is just another example of his attention-seeking.
Convenient that he's chosen to do this when he's under investigation for alleged misconduct, I'd say...
Also, I realise this may just be my lack of a tinfoil hat talking, but surely the federal government would be able to work out if someone had swapped the date stamp number around as is being alleged here? That's a fairly simple spot I would have suggested, considering the lengths they go to in every other regard. I can't comment on the alleged evidence as the website isn't loading, but I'm with Acheron on this one. It just smacks of attention seeking and a little bit of deflection from his own problems.

Oh, jeez. I live in Buckeye, Arizona, and I didn't even read this. Arpaio is the dumbest and certainly most unfit sheriff I have ever heard of. Arpaio this, Arpaio that. You're right. It's an attention getting thing.
