Read Joe Arpaio's Birther Homework

This was the wrong news day for Sheriff Joe Arpaio to release the results of his "cold case posse" investigation of Barack Obama's birth documents. A quick read reveals nothing that hasn't been published on WorldNetDaily before, and Jerome Corsi, WND's psuedo-investigator, was on hand in Phoenix to make his usual claims.
