The lead MCSO investigator looking into the authenticity of President Barack Obama's birth certificate claims that Hawaiian regulation for obtaining the document was so lax, it would cast doubt on any birth records from Hawaii.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio said taxpayers are not footing the bill for his Cold Case Posse and a deputy to travel to Hawaii to investigate President Obama's birth certificate.
CBS 5 News spoke by phone with lead investigator Mike Zullo. Zullo, other posse members and one deputy went to Hawaii, the latest step in Arpaio's quest to determine whether Obama's birth certificate is legitimate.
Sheriff Arpaio revealed his findings of a investigation into the president's birth certificate at a 1 hour and 20 minute news conference, calling the certificate "suspect."
