“Any day now” gets closer

It’s been a slow week and I am reduced to republishing Birther Report. One of them had the stomach to listen to Carl Gallups Freedom Friday program and this comes from that:

Carl Gallups: Been talking to Mike Zullo. Both the birth certificate and criminal investigations are still ongoing. Sheriff Arpaio is getting close to holding the press conference. They are in the process of getting over two legal hurdles so they can release some of the information. All sources and information must be extensively vetted.

So “any day now” becomes “getting close” and “getting VIPs on board” becomes “getting over two legal hurdles.” I wonder what those legal hurdles are. Could they be:

  1. No evidence
  2. No jurisdiction

Perhaps we will find out, any day now.

Cold Case Posse gets a pass

In a move that’s leaving this writer’s head shaking, the Arizona Corporation Commission has confirmed that the Cold Case Posse is now in good standing with the Commission, and that it’s corporate filings now conform with statutory requirements (even though that hardly seems possible).

A copy of the following email was forwarded to me:

Thank you for the additional information regarding the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse.  We have reviewed the recent submissions relating to this entity and can accurately state that all approved filings are in compliance with applicable statutes.  The entity record has been updated to reflect those approved filings.

Thank you again for the information.

Sincerely,

Tanya M. Gibson, Deputy Director

I will refrain from saying something catty at this point.

Update:

Some folks have gone over the CCP filing in detail and have concluded that the letter of the law has been followed, if perhaps not the intent. What we see here is the continued program of hiding and non-disclosure from the Cold Case Posse that I think is in appropriate for an organization that gets a tax exemption from the government.

Flash: Cold Case Posse in good standing. Why?

Updates to the Arizona Corporation Commission web site show the Cold Case Posse now in good standing. I said it would be simple to fix. What is strange is that the corporation’s address remains the address of a post office and the Agent physical address a FORMER location of the Sheriff’s Office, where we confirmed that the Cold Case Posse and Mike Zullo do not have an office.

Stay tuned.

Cold Case Posse officer guilty of perjury?

False statement on corporate filing

We’ve all been having our little laugh about the antics of the Cold Case Posse and their inability to fix a simple corporate registration in Arizona. It should be a simple fix, but if they don’t get on the stick, their little enterprise may get dissolved in about 52 days.

However, something a little more serious has surfaced in the Posse’s 2014 Annual Report with the Arizona Corporations Commission, filed this past June 16, and signed by Mike Kowalski (bearing the title “Other Officer” whatever that is). The signature on the form, in this case electronic, is given under this text:

I further declare under penalty of perjury that I (we) have examined this report and the certificate, including any attachments, and to the best of my (our) knowledge and belief they are true, correct and complete.

Let’s examine one item on the annual report:

That is not true and it is not correct.

Given the significant publicity accompanying the move of the Sheriff’s Office to new facilities at 550 West Jackson Street over 6 months ago, it is hard to excuse anyone in one of the posses not knowing there the Sheriff’s Office is, and that it is no longer at 100 W. Washington, the address filed with the Arizona Corporations Commission for Mike Zullo a scant 10 days ago.

Some speculated that perhaps the Sheriff’s Office still maintains a presence in the old building, and that Zullo can be reached at that address. Not so, according to the property manager as confirmed today by Lori Brown:

I am responding on behalf of Danny Ischy as he is traveling this week.  I have confirmed with our Property Manager that everyone from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office vacated the Wells Fargo building in December 2013 and Mr. Zullo no longer has an office at 100 W. Washington St.

Thanks to individuals who provided information for this story.

Cold Case Posse faces dissolution

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse has been operating for over 2 years without valid corporate filings with the State of Arizona. They used a bogus address (the street address of a post office) for their place of business in violation of the statute. A notice of deficiency was sent to the CCP, and no appropriate corrections have been made. The CCP’s latest filing this past Monday, June 16, still has the bogus address!

The CCP has now been given 60 days, and if they do not remedy their filings, the CCP corporation will be dissolved.

You can search for an Arizona corporation on the Commission web site (search under Annual Report). The Cold Case Posse file number is 1334289-0.

Breaking!

Zullo responds. Will use Sheriff’s Office for address (only that’s not really the Sheriff’s office address he used). Read it all at the Phoenix New Times, where you see Zullo say:

Biiiiitch!

imageEven so, the Corporate Annual Report filed this past June 16, lists a 10-month-old address for Zullo at the Sheriff’s Office (right). No wonder he can’t respond to notices from the ACC: Zullo gave them the wrong address.

The Corsi/WND/Arpaio/Zullo/Montgomery connection

Up until a just a few days ago, I had never heard of Dennis Montgomery, the fellow we’re calling the “Seattle scammer” because according to a 2010 article in Playboy Magazine, he sold fake intelligence information to the CIA for big bucks. He now lives in the Seattle area.

The Phoenix New Times, using confidential sources at the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, reports that Montgomery has been paid $100,000 and given $50,000 in computer equipment by Arpaio for intelligence information about federal judge G. Murray Snow and Attorney General Eric Holder. (Phoenix New Times Reporter Stephen Lemons will talk about this on a special edition of  Reality Check Radio tonight at 9 PM Eastern.)

I had noted that Douglas Vogt, a birther volunteer expert who supplied information to the Cold Case Posse, lives a scant 8.6 miles (using actual addresses) from Montgomery, and speculated that proximity might account for the connection between Sheriff Arpaio and Dennis Montgomery.

There may be a closer connection. According to multiple sources, Jerome Corsi worked closely with the Cold Case Posse at the beginning, providing most of the information they used. Zullo and Corsi co-authored a book about the CCP investigation, some of which derived from Corsi’s articles at WorldNetDaily. Here’s a photo of Corsi with Mike Zullo, “commander” of the Cold Case Posse at a presentation that included Sheriff Arpaio.
