On September 15, 2011, I was contacted by the lead investigator for the newly formed Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Cold-Case Posse. The purpose of the Cold-Case Posse is to investigate the Certificate of Live Birth that President Barack Obama produced and displayed to the public on April 27, 2011. The Surprise Tea Party made the request based on the reports of 20 experts who have stated there are many issues that would indicate that the document as posted on the White House website, may be a forgery. If the document is determined to be a forgery, it may have an impact on Barack Obama's ability to be placed on the 2012 presidential Ballot in Arizona. I was told that this investigation "is not political" and the investigation will be done with the "utmost diligence." The Cold-Case Posse is a posse within the 3,000 member MCSO Posse. The Cold-Case Posse constists of a 5 member team, well versed in investigations. Sheriff Arpaio has set up the Cold Case Posse as a 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit organization. This investigation will be the first investigation in U.S. history by a county sheriff of a sitting president. Tax deductible donations to the investigation may be made to: MCSO Cold-Case Posse P.O. Box 74374 Phoenix, Arizona 85087 For further information and verification please contact the Public Information Officer, Lt. Justin Griffin at the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.
