Jerome Corsi, author of Where’s the Birth Certificate?, a crank investigation of Barack Obama’s place of birth, relied on a so-called Hawaiian private investigator. Questions were raised here by a commenter and discussed in my article Bogus WND Detective raises bogus issue about the fact that no such person as Takeyuki Irei is reported in a search of professional licenses in Hawaii.
Now Fox Business, in a May 18 interview with Corsi, says that they can’t find a license either! Corsi’s response:
I have a copy of his license and I’ll be happy to get it for you.
Well, where’s the detective certificate?
Fox News describes Corsi’s new book as “full of holes” but he’s not worried:
I’m used to being ridiculed.
I frankly think that Fox Business is really a lot better at making a birther look stupid than CNN is. I really do.
