Former Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff Joe Arpaio crawled out of the woodwork on Tuesday to revive false claims that former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a fake and to announce his plans to run for Congress in 2018.
Arpaio told WABC’s host, Rita Cosby, that Congress has failed to create a law that would require the birth place of a president to be verified.
“I’m going to tell you again that that document is a forgery document,” he said.”I wanted to get it to Congress so they can pass some type of law – regulation – that when somebody runs for president you ought to check their background, so this won’t happen again.
The Arizona sheriff complained he can’t get anyone to look into the “truth”.
On Tuesday, Arpaio announced his plans to see Republican nomination in Arizona’s Senate race in 2018. He told Cosby that when he becomes Senator, he would challenge Obama’s birth certificate in Congress.
Last year, Arpaio was charged for failing to heed a Judge’s warning after evidence discovered his department had been racial profiling Latinos and mistreating prisoners. After two decades as sheriff, Arpaio was forced to resign.
