On August 22, 2011, as a Surprise Tea Party Patriots member, I met with Sheriff Joe Arpaio, at 9:00 A.M., in his office, on the 19th floor of the Wells Fargo Building. As a group, five STPP members and Jerome Corsi had already met with Sheriff Arpaio on August 18th to present him with the petition I had written requesting that Arpaio investigate the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate. The birth certificate had been posted on the White House website, April 27, 2011. Arpaio wanted me to return, on August 22, 2011 , to his office with a formal letter of request and all of the evidence that I had on the subject.
The most important piece of evidence that I had, was the “Eligibility Book” that had been supplied to me by Mr. William (Bill) Wolf, via author, Jerome Corsi of WND.com. This book became the source material for the Cold Case Posse investigation and I specifically discussed Mr. Douglas Vogt’s report with Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Brian Sands on August 22, 2011. To give one a sense of the importance of the Eligibility Book, what follows are excerpts from Bill Wolf’s correspondence. (Please note the correspondence with Representative Mike Pence, the current 2016, GOP pick for Vice President of the United States.)

Dear Brian & Denise,
The three Eligibility books that I sent to you did not include the forwarding letter. I have enclosed the letter to Representative Mike Pence so that you can see what was requested. Also enclosed is the list of 16 Representatives and 3 Senators that we hand delivered books to on August 4, as well as, The 5 Representatives and 2 Senators that received the book on August 25, 2011. All the letters were identical to Representative Pence’s. Members of the Tea Party Caucus are noted. There was emphasis on members of the Judiciary Committees and Sub-Committees where hearings would have to originate.

Dear Representative Pence,
I have enclosed Corsi’s book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President.”
In addition, I have enclosed a tabulation of statements made by 20 Experts (attached to this letter), the backup information on the 20 Experts, the WND/Wenzel poll of June 16-19 and a letter from one of our attorneys, Richard King, on the eligibility issue. These have all been placed in a book for ease of examination. While some may believe that the President’s discussion of a “long” birth certificate has put the matter to rest, everything in the enclosed in depth analysis discredits the validity of that second document. It is clear that the – so called – “long” certificate raises profoundly disturbing questions and raises the real probability that the President is constitutionally unqualified for the office.
As you can see half of Americans question eligibility.
I would like to come down with two of my attorneys, as well as, some of the experts to elaborate on this eligibility issue. Please let me know when there would be a convenient time.
Based on the information contained in the Eligibility Book, Sheriff Joe Arpaio assigned the investigation of the Obama birth certificate to volunteer, Cold Case Posse member Mike Zullo. On April 1, 2012, my wife Denise and I accompanied Mike Zullo on a road trip to Seattle, Washington. One purpose for the trip was to interview Mr. Douglas Vogt. We met with Mr. Vogt and his wife at a Starbucks in Bellevue. I left the meeting unconvinced.
On May 6, 2012, Mike Zullo and I left on another road trip, this time to Oklahoma to interview Miki Booth. (I’ve attached a PDF of the autographed copy of her book “Memoirs of a Community Organizer from Hawaii, Miki Booth.”) Doug Vogt had accused Miki Booth of being one of the forgers of the Obama birth certificate. We met with Miki Booth and her husband, a retired police officer, on May 7, 2012. Miki Booth and her husband were very hospitable to us and we enjoyed speaking with them. I left with the belief that Miki Booth had nothing to do with the alleged forgery of Obama’s birth certificate. Zullo apparently believed Miki Booth had nothing to do with the alleged forgery as well. Zullo told me he was in communication with Miki Booth during his trip to Hawaii in May of 2012. The Hawaii Verification of Birth, sent to Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett on May 22, 2012 was prima facie evidence that no Obama birth certificate forgery had been committed by anyone, including Miki Booth or Dr. Conspiracy.
On our trip home from Oklahoma, Mike Zullo was notified by cellphone that he would be receiving a check for $10,000.00. It was being sent to Mr. Zullo by Mr. Bill Wolf, the same man who supplied the source information for the birth certificate investigation. This event was extensively covered by Investigative Reporter, Morgan Loew with KPHO CBS-5, here in Phoenix.
In reviewing my information for this article, I was quite surprised to see Representative Mike Pence’s name appear in correspondence from Mr. Bill Wolf. The questions that I have are these:
Did Mr. Wolf and his attorneys ever meet with Representative Mike Pence, and what was Pence’s position on the Obama birth certificate?
Did Sheriff Arpaio or Mike Zullo ever meet with Representative Mike Pence regarding the Obama birth certificate investigation?
As the GOP Vice Presidential candidate, does Rep. Mike Pence believe, in spite of evidence to the contrary, that President Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery?
I would like answers to these questions. I think others would be interested as well.
