Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been letting birthers play “cops and President” at his office since birther enthusiast Jerome Corsi introduced the game at a local Tea Party gathering last year. Some local taxpayers, however, became outraged when they learned that $40,000 of Department funds had been used to send one of the birthers to play detective in Hawaii.
Carolyn Cooper of Citizens for a better Arizona appeared before the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to vent her frustration:
Sheriff Arpaio can no longer be trusted to act in the best interest of what’s best for citizens and residents in Maricopa County when it comes to public safety. This birther investigation is an embarrassment to many of us who call Arizona our home.
Is the Cold Case Posse resurrection of long-dead crank theories responsible for the upsurge in concern over zombies?
