Judge: "So you have all this incontrovertible evidence, huh?" Arpaio: "Yes, your Honor." Judge: "So why haven't you taken it to the FBI or a prosecutor or a grand jury or anyone else with jurisdiction outside Maricopa County instead of just giving press conferences and speeches before teabagger groups?" Arpaio: "Um...er...because Obama bought everyone off." Judge: "And what's this about sending your top lieutenant (the one who wasn't disbarred) on what was basically a Hawaiian vacation and making the taxpayers foot the bill?" Arpaio: "Obama made me do it." Judge: "Thought so. Denied."
Here's something interesting. An affidavit is submitted under penalty of perjury and Arpaio's affidavit (http://www.scribd.com/doc/96893893/FL-VOELTZ-Arpaio-Affidavit) is filled with language to let him weasel out of anything already known to be false - meaning pretty much everything. For example: "Upon close examination of the evidence, it is my BELIEF that forgery and fraud was LIKELY committed in key identity documents including President Obama's long-form birth certificate, his Selective Service Registration card and his Social Security number." (Emphasis added.)
See what he's doing? He's covering his posterior and not swearing to anything, really. Which only proves what everyone already knows: that he doesn't really believe in Birther Madness and doesn't want to risk himself.
