A peculiar story appeared in the Honolulu Star Advertiser newspaper Monday. Two persons identifying themselves as “authorized by the Sheriff of Maricopa County” and carrying badges of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office showed up at the Department of Health and asked for verification of President Obama’s birth certificate. In addition to Mike Zullo, member of Joe Arpaio’s volunteer Cold Case Posse, was Brian Mackiewcz.
The story does not indicate whether the two were shown a copy of the index of 1961 births which available to the public at the Department of Health. (It would have been a nice touch.) They were, however, shown the legal requirements necessary for them to be eligible to obtain the verification. Presumably they left without getting what they came for. A phone call would have saved a lot of money.
It sounds like a publicity stunt to me.
