Dear Mr. DeGerolamo,
Thank you for your reply.
I can assure you that I am the “Brian Reilly” who posted the original information back in 2012, on your NC Renegade website. I also asked for donations for the investigation. I thought it was my responsibility to your readers to post my current thoughts about the outcome of Sheriff Arpaio’s investigation that I requested back in 2011, and that I worked on as a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse member in 2012. I requested the investigation back in 2011 to hopefully quell the ongoing debate regarding then President Obama’s birth certificate as depicted as a computer generated PDF posted on the White House website April 27, 2011. And yes, I still believe that God gave me the idea for the investigation. However, the investigation ended up going in a direction that I never expected regarding exposing the inner workings of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office which I believe ultimately contributed to the defeat of Sheriff Joe Arpaio in his reelection bid in 2016.
Here is a link to a news article that the Arizona Republic (AZ Central) did just prior to the November, 2016 election. My wife Denise and I were interviewed for 4 1/2 hours at our Sun City West home by Mr. Richard Ruelas. The article gives a complete picture of how my idea came about and what I currently think about the so called investigation.
I am a longtime conservative Republican, and I campaigned with my father for Richard Nixon in 1960 and Barry Goldwater in 1964. In 2016, I supported and voted for Donald Trump. I am also a Believer in Christ. I did not support President Obama’s politics.
Personally, I think your readers might be interested in my observations in 2017. But, then again, it is your website and your decision, which I respect.
To prove to you who I am, I have included a picture of me being sworn into the Cold Case Posse by Sheriff Joe Arpaio. I have also included a letter to me from Maricopa County Prosecuting Attorney William Montgomery regarding the “evidence” accumulated by the Cold Case Posse back in 2012. He considered the Cold Case Posse “evidence” as only “speculation” and would not take any action regarding President Obama based on the lack of evidence. On December 7, 2016, I again spoke with Maricopa County Attorney William Montgomery and I asked him if the Cold Case Posse or Sheriff Arpaio had ever approached him again since 2012 with any new evidence regarding the birth certificate investigation. Mr. Montgomery’s reply was “No.” It’s my understanding the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office also never assigned a case number to the investigation. This became just one more of Joe Arpaio’s many dog & pony shows and publicity stunts.
I’ve also included two Verifications of Birth issued by the state of Hawaii to Secretary of State Ken Bennett and to the Mississippi Democratic Party for use in a Mississippi court case regarding President Obama. In reality, these Verifications of Birth issued on May 22, 2012 (to Arizona) and on May 31, 2012 (to Mississippi) should have ended the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office / Cold Case Posse investigation, but it didn’t. It continued for another 4 1/2 years.
So there you have it. Regardless of what you decide to do with this information regarding your website and your readers, at the very least, you as the Editor, know the outcome of the “investigation.”
I thank you very much for your time and your consideration and I thank you for allowing me to post my thoughts back in 2012.
