Guest editorial by Brian Reilly
The following editorial article is my reply to the Sharon Rondeau article, which Ms. Rondeau published in response to an Arizona Central, (AC) article that was published in print and also on the internet. The AC reporter spent 4 ½ hours on September 22, 2016, interviewing us at our home. Here are the links to the AC photo gallery and the AC article:
How Arizona became ground zero for ‘birthers’ Brian Reilly sits with wife Denise among documents from his time as a member of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe …
Sharon Rondeau’s article about my part in the Obama Birth Certificate Investigation and my Cold Case Posse experience is biased, incomplete, inaccurate and unprofessional. For the record, I was not offered the opportunity to give any input for her article or the offer to make any corrections. Her article has once again exposed her pro-Birther agenda and her avoidance of any information that would undermine or conflict with her pro-Birther position or her defense of Maricopa County Sheriff’s Posse volunteer, Mike Zullo and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. In my opinion, neither Sharon Rondeau, nor Posse member Mike Zullo are believable. So let’s begin.
Rondeau wrote: “Zullo declined an interview request from The Post & Email for this article but was agreeable to clarifying several points made in the AC piece.”
Response: I consider her article to be the Rondeau, “non-interview, interview” of Mr. Zullo.
A Question of Credibility:
On several occasions, the issue of timeline problems were brought up in Ms. Rondeau’s article. A timeline that Rondeau and Zullo failed to mention is found in Posseman Mike Zullo’s and Deputy Mackiewicz’ report regarding the “Seattle Operation.” This is Exhibit #2726, found in Melendres v. Arpaio. This report was sent to Mike Zullo (his email address is listed on the report) from Deputy Brian Mackiewicz on September 4, 2014 at 6:56PM. The report is entitled: “Elmer’s Case Summary” which was testified to have been written by both Zullo and Mackiewicz. “Elmer” was the code name for confidential informant, Dennis L. Montgomery who was being paid by Sheriff Arpaio’s Office and in return the MCSO, according to court testimony, received worthless information considered “junk.” I sat in disbelief in court listening to Mike Zullo testify to the accuracy of the Elmer Case Summary because Zullo said it was accurate because it was a “law enforcement” report. Ms. Rondeau and Mr. Zullo, please tell us, what is wrong with the following timeline? Continue Reading →
