SHERIFF ARPAIO REQUESTS INVESTIGATIONBY SELECTIVE SERVICE DIRECTOR INTOPRESIDENT OBAMA’S 1980 REGISTRATION CARD
(Phoenix, AZ) Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has sent a letter to the Director of the U.S. Selective Service System headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. The Sheriff isasking the agency to conduct an investigation of Barack Obama’s Selective Serviceregistration form from 1980 after the preliminary findings of the Sheriff’s six-month-long investigation determined that it may be a forgery.The letter also asked Director Lawrence Romo to produce the original form soforensic document examiners can analyze the document to determine if it is authentic.(letter attached)Because of inconsistencies on the form itself including an unusually incomplete datestamp, Sheriff’s investigators suspect the form, which was allegedly filled out inHonolulu, Hawaii in 1980, may be a forgery.Sheriff’s investigators were able to replicate the alleged forgery by obtaining a circa1980 pica stamp and a circa “2008” date plug. Investigators were able to clearlydemonstrate the “80” (which should have actually read 1980) in Obama’s SelectiveService Registration form resulted from cutting out the “08” from an authentic “2008”date plug, and inverting the “08” to read “80” when the cut plug was loaded into theyear slot on the 1980 pica stamp. (see form attached)Sheriff Arpaio is asking Director Romo to respond to him within 30 days on whetheror not his national office will provide the Sheriff with the original document and if hisoffice will move forward with an investigation of its own.Lawrence Romo, who was appointed as Director to the U.S. Selective Service Systemin 2009 by President Obama, reports directly to the President.

“While my office will continue pursuing this investigation, I have spoken of the needto enlist the aid of other agencies. As a first step to that end, I am now requesting theassistance of the U.S. Selective Service System asking them to conduct a concurrentinvestigation to verify the authenticity of this document,” Arpaio says.Arpaio says he foresees the need to ask for the assistance of other agencies as well toultimately determine whether the President’s birth certificate and Selective Serviceregistration form are in fact forgeries.“Failure to register or otherwise comply with the Selective Service registrationprocess is a serious offense,” Arpaio says. “The law says a person who fails to registercan end up with a $250,000 fine, five years imprisonment and is ultimately prohibitedfrom holding any job in government.”Arpaio, a Korean War veteran who served in the U.S. Army, believes strongly in theimportance of registering for the selective service. He even started a program in 2004to encourage inmates, including non-U.S. citizens, to register. Since then, about40,000 inmates including 9,000 non U.S. citizens have registered for the selectiveservice. END

16, 2012.1515 Wilson Blvd. #600Arlington, VA 22209-2425FAX: 703.605.4106Inforn1ationrcv,ss .govDear Director Romo:On behalf
of
the residents
of
Maricopa County, Arizona, my Office is conducting an on-going lawenforcement investigation into the authenticity
of
President Barack
Obama's
birth certificate and tothe subsequent question
of
his eligibility to be placed on the 2012 Arizona ballot for the Office
of
President
of
the United States.On M(lrch
1,
2012, a press conference was held
in
which I announced the initial findings
of
theMaricopa County
Sheriffs
Office Cold Case Posse investigation. Among the findings is not onlythe President's birth certificate a likely fraud, but furthermore, there
is
probable cause to believethat the Selective Service Registration card on file and allegedly submitted by Mr. Obama on July29, 1980, was also a forgery.We came to that conclusion after comparing a copy
of
the President's Selective Service Registrationcard to copies
of
several other known-to-be-authentic Selective Service Registration cards, some
of
which were submitted from the same Post Office (Makaki Station) in Honolulu, and in the samemonth and year (July -1980).The comparison shows the pica stamp used in Hawaii, at that time, stamped a four-digit year ontothe authentic form. But President
Obama's
Selective Service Registration card has only a two-digityear designation, specifying only
"80"
for what should have been "1980."Maricopa County
Sheriffs
investigators were able to replicate the alleged forgery by obtaining acirca 1980 pica stamp and a circa "2008" date plug. We believe we can clearly demonstrate the
"80"
in Obama's Selective Service Registration card likely resulted from cutting out the
"08"
fromthe authentic "2008" date plug, and inverting the
"08"
to read
"80"
when the cut plug was loadedinto the year slot on the 1980 pica stamp.
