Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio plans to release new findings in his ongoing investigation of President Obama's birth certificate, which he believes is a forgery.
In an interview with birther-friendly website World Net Daily, the self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" in America said he would soon hold a press conference to reveal new evidence that he believes will prove that Obama's birth certificate and Selective Service documenation are fabrications.
Arpaio, who is currently the subject of a Department of Justice probe investigating charges of racial profiling against Hispanics within his office, told the website that he has no intention of leaving his post, even as he faces a federal trial.
“I have no intention of resigning,” Arpaio said. “They forget I have a four decades-long career in federal law enforcement."
The controversial sheriff held a press conference last month to unveil his probe's initial findings. During that conference, he said there was probable cause to believe Obama's identification documents were forged, although he did not pin the blame on Obama directly.
"We don't know who the perpetrators are of these documents," he said.
