Shoddy: CBS News Reports Sheriff Joe Arpaio 
Repeatedly Stated Obama Was Not Born In U.S.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced he's running for a seventh term as Maricopa County sheriff ...

Catherine Holland writes @ Arizona's KPHO CBS-5:

Arpaio to run for seventh term as Maricopa County sheriff

Arpaio, 82, also has been an outspoken critic of President Barack Obama, and has repeatedly stated his belief that Obama was not born in the U.S. He conducted a six-month investigation into the issue concluded that Obama's birth certificate, which was released by the White House in April 2011, was a forgery. That conclusion was dismissed by Arizona's top elected officials and directly refuted but the governor of Hawaii, where Obama was born. [...] KPHO.

Sheriff Arpaio never stated Obama was not born in the U.S.. He did report the birth certificate is a 100% forgery.

Controversial Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio To Seek Seventh Term 
Arpaio, who was first elected in 1992, is known for his tough stance on immigration, as well as conditions that opponents have said are too harsh in the county's jails. 
The sheriff was one of a number of Obama critics who said they did not believe the Democratic president had been born in the United States. 
He said in 2012 that a "volunteer posse" had investigated Obama's birth certificate and determined it to be fraudulent. The so-called "birther" movement had been widely discredited by that time. (Reporting by Sharon Bernstein; Editing by Mohammad Zargham) [...] Yahoo. Hat tip guest.

Discredited by who? The media? Go back and watch both of Sheriff Arpaio's pressers and pay close attention at the end when the the so-called journalists "question" Sheriff Arpaio about the investigation. Discredited?

The only people discredited >>>>> the so-called news media ...

There's a problem when 47% of the American people still are not sure if Obama is even a U.S. citizen.
