Arpaio requests Obama's Selective Service card

PHOENIX - Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has asked the Director of the U.S. Selective Service to investigate the authenticity of President Barack Obama's registration card from 1980.

This after his volunteer posse looked into whether President Obama's birth certificate was real or not .

Critics say the group did not work with the original document making any findings irrelevant.

The sheriff has asked Director Lawrence Romo to produce the original form so forensic document examiners can analyze the document.

The sheriff also asked the director to respond to him within 30 days on whether or not his office will provide the sheriff with the original document and if his office will move forward with an investigation of its own.

Lawrence Romo was appointed Director to the U.S. Selective Service System in 2009 by President Obama.

"While my office will continue pursuing this investigation, I have spoken of the need to enlist the aid of other agencies. As a first step to that end, I am now requesting the assistance of the U.S. Selective Service System asking them to conduct a concurrent investigation to verify the authenticity of this document," Arpaio said in a Wednesday news release.
