ForgeryGate: An open letter to the Honorable Arizona Attorney General, Tom Horne


On March 1, 2012, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office held a formal press conference regarding their investigation into the identification documents of President Barack Hussein Obama II. At the press conference, it was announced that the MCSO had developed sufficient evidence to indicate that Mr. Obama’s Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth and his Selective Service System registration form were criminal forgeries. To say the least, the findings were shocking.

Many citizens contacted Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett’s office to request that Mr. Obama be kept off the November 6, 2012 ballot as the authenticity and criminality of his identification papers were now in question. At Mr. Bennett’s request, the State of Hawaii sent a “Verification of Birth” notice in May of 2012. Surprisingly, the one most critical piece of information that was conveniently missing was Mr. Obama’s date of birth. Secretary Bennett, apparently satisfied even with the lack of this critical information, notified the public that Mr. Obama would be on the November ballot, assuming the Democratic National Committee provided the proper nomination form.

On September 10, 2012, the Arizona Secretary of State received the DNC presidential nomination paper for Barack Hussein Obama. On the document, Mr. Obama swore or affirmed that he is “a natural born citizen of the United States and [he] is at least thirty-five years of age…..and meet[s] all other constitutional requirements to hold the office of President of the United States.”

The people of Arizona deserve truthful answers to the predicament that we currently find ourselves in. Is Barack Obama eligible to be President? Are his identification documents forgeries? Has a crime been committed in Arizona? And if a crime of fraud and forgery and possible conspiracy have been committed, who would be the one most likely to benefit from such crimes? The answer is obvious.

I think it is time for you, the Arizona Attorney General, to come to the aid of your law enforcement partner, Sheriff Arpaio, and take the MCSO findings to the state grand jury for review. Let’s turn Sheriff Arpaio’s findings over to the people who have been assigned the task of determining whether a crime has been committed, and ultimately, who is the beneficiary of such criminal behavior. Lets take the evidence out of the hands of the politicians and let the citizens in the state grand jury decide the validity of the MCSO findings, prior to the November elections.

Arizona Revised Statute, Chapter 23, Sec. 13-2311 states in part, “…any person who, pursuant to a scheme or artifice to defraud or deceive, knowingly falsifies, conceals or covers up a material fact by trick, scheme or device or makes or uses any false writing or document knowing such writing or document contains any false, fictitious or fraudulent statement or entry is guilty of a class 5 felony.”

In the words of former President Richard M. Nixon of Watergate fame, “…people have got to know whether their President is a crook.”

Attorney General Horne, please request Sheriff Arpaio’s findings about President Obama’s identification documents and submit them to the state grand jury, and let the jurors decide if Mr. Obama benefits from criminal fraud and forgery and should be kept off the November Arizona 2012 ballot.  The citizens of Arizona have been patient.  Again, we have the right to know the answers to these questions before the November election.  Thank you for your time.
