Arpaio using tax payer money to fund birther investigation

Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: May of 2012
Categories: Joe Arpaio & Arpaio Releases "Findings" on Obama Birther Conspiracy
Joe Arpaio opened an investigation to determine whether or not Obama was born a U.S. citizen. Since this is not in his jurisdiction as Sheriff, he assured everyone that the investigation was privately funded. Turns out that the Sheriff's Office, and in-turn the taxpayers, have been footing the bill for airfare and hotel room for the investigators. This is made worse by the fact that the investigation is frivolous since the 'birther' conspiracy has long been debunked.
