When Sheriff Joe Arpaio held his first conference announcing preliminary results of the Cold Case Posse’s investigation in to Barack Obama’s documentation, birther hopes were at a high point. Over a year later, it has come to nothing but press conferences, radio appearances, and an inadmissible affidavit appended to some legal briefs.
Birthers are making demands now, and one article at the Orly Taitz Esq. site [link to Taitz web site] details demands from Brian Riley, described as the organizer of the Arizona Tea Party. Riley summarizes the history of the Cold Case Posse and then demands:
A criminal complaint needs to be immediately filed with the appropriate authorities in my opinion. This does not look good and time is short.
Mr. Riley says that if Zullo writes another book before charges are filed, he’s going to ask for a refund. I left the following comment in reply (currently in moderation):
In their passion to unseat Barack Obama, the birthers really don’t pay much attention to the people who preach their cause, so long as they say the right words, and hold out some promise for results. It is, frankly, fertile ground for hucksters and con men.
I don’t know about Zullo, whether he’s a con man or a true believer, but I do know that the Cold Case Posse has made promise after promise that they haven’t kept, they presented some evidence that was faked, their "experts" tell stories that contradict each other from press conference to press conference, they refuse to testify under oath and blow off subpoenas, and they never actually do anything but seek media attention.
What amazes me is that anyone at this stage would be willing to give the CCP more time. Someone who hasn’t wised up already isn’t going to wise up tomorrow.
Here’s another comment left by someone else:
Zullo stood up and detailed his findings. Sherriff A stated he appointed this in front of the camera. He detailed the reason he solicited the investigation. As a Sherriff it is his duty to act on criminal complaints.
He can file fraud charges. Its up to the AG of the county and state to pursue the case. It is in his jurisdiction to file the complaint when people in his jurisdiction make complaints.
Someone is full of horse manure.
… Anyone who thinks they will ever file charges is nuts. …
Those Arpaio-enablers are our main impediment to removing the Usurper.
Unfortunately, with the level of corruption on BOTH sides of the fence, I don’t see how this country is going to avoid a total and complete meltdown. The public’s anger is palpable – and it is being deliberately stoked by these pukesacks every day. They want trouble and by God, they are going to get it. Brace for impact.
