    President Obama released his birth certificate, but the birthers aren’t giving up: Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio has created a five-person “Cold Case Posse” to investigate whether Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery. "This investigation does not involve politics," Arpaio said. "My door is open to everyone, and I don't kick them out. If a complaint is legitimate, I don't dump it into the wastebasket.” The Posse will be funded through donations from birthers.
