The only law-enforcement officer to investigate the Obama eligibility question is in the clear. On Friday, the US Department of Justice dropped their case against Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona.
Lack of evidence
USA Today first reported the story yesterday. An assistant US Attorney in Phoenix sent out a three-paragraph press release at 5:00 p.m. Arizona time. (Arizona keeps Mountain Standard Time year-round.) That press release looked like typical “Friday afternoon document-dump boilerplate.” But the AUSA said more in a letter to the Maricopa County Attorney.
The federal authorities were investigating complaints of:
- Breach of civil rights
- Misuse of public funds
And the AUSA admitted that the federal authorities could not prove any of it. Part of the problem: these were criminal complaints. The standard of proof in a criminal case is “beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty.”
Arpaio, speaking publicly, said this:
If I had done something wrong, there would be indictments all over the place.
Obama eligibility and other motives
The Obama eligibility matter was only one motive to act. Much of the pressure to investigate Joe Arpaio was local. WND‘s Jerome Corsi shared the details. The case started with a scandal involving the building of a new courthouse. It got uglier when federal authorities had two more reasons to quash Sheriff Arpaio:
- Sheriff Arpaio opened the only Obama eligibility investigation in the country. He used his Cold Case Posse, which funds itself on donations and voluntary time.
- Sheriff Arpaio also refused to stop deporting illegal aliens he caught in his county.
Tad Cronn at Godfather Politics put it this way: “Staredown at OK Corral.” (Actually, Tombstone, Arizona is in Cochise County, not Maricopa.)
Everyone familiar with federal and Maricopa County politics expects Sheriff Joe to:
- Stay on as sheriff (and win re-election this fall),
- Be a lasting thorn in the side for Attorney General Eric Holder and other opponents, national and local.
