Amid death threats, Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio is scratching his head over the major media’s virtual silence about his decision to investigate Barack Obama’s eligibility to run for re-election.
“Getting death threats is nothing new for me,” Arpaio told WND, referring to his national reputation as a tough enforcer of immigration laws. “But why has the media has decided to black out all news of our Obama investigation? That’s what I don’t understand.
“I’m a controversial guy and usually the media is all over me,” he continued, “but when I decided to investigate Obama, the media has suddenly gone missing in action.”
Arpaio said that if the media’s strategy is to minimize the impact of his investigation by ignoring it, it is not likely to work.
“If the mainstream media thinks our investigation will go away if it remains unreported, they’re wrong. The investigation is proceeding, and I fully anticipate we will publish a report early next year.”
