According to Jerome Corsi writing in WorldNetDaily:
“I have no intention of resigning,” said Arpaio, who is running for his sixth term as sheriff of Maricopa County. “They forget I have a four-decades long career in federal law enforcement that includes having been a special agent for the FBI and having worked for the Drug Enforcement Agency in the United States, as well as in Argentina, Turkey and Mexico.”
Arpaio was never a “special agent for the FBI” although he was a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Narcotics. So was this Jerome Corsi’s mistake, substituting FBI or FBN, or Sheriff Joe turning fantasy into fact. Arpaio wrote in his 2008 book Joe’s Law (p 132):
Since I was a boy, I had longed to join the FBI and be a real G-man.

Thanks for an e-mail tip on the WND mistake.
