Maricopa County (Ariz.) Sheriff Joe Arpaio has sent one of his deputies to Hawaii to assist volunteer investigators investigating President Obama's birth certificate.
The deputy joined Mike Zullo, a volunteer member of Arpaio's cold-case team, in this week because of what Arpaio called "security issues" and because the investigation has progressed.
"It's one deputy, so what? We have security issues, too, that I can't got into," Arpaio told the Tucson Citizen. "For six months we were not spending any money. When you're doing investigations, sometimes things change. You put more resources into it."
