Randy Parraz and his posse of activists from Citizens for a Better Arizona want Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to come clean on using taxpayer money for an investigation into President Obama's birth certificate.
Dressed in Hawaiian garb, members of CBA were at Arpaio's executive office on the 19th floor of the Wells Fargo Building in downtown Phoenix today, demanding that the sheriff face some of the taxpayers' footing the $10,000 bill for sending an MCSO deputy to Hawaii as part of the birther probe.
Saturday afternoon Channel 12's Brahm Resnik reported that for the deputy's 9-night stay at Honolulu's Ala Moana Hotel, the bill came to $1,323.
Resnik also reported that the trip should have been cleared with the county manager, as is required for county trips outside the continental U.S.
In a press conference timed to coincide with the start of a racial profiling trial against Arpaio in federal court, the MCSO is scheduled to release details on what Mackiewcz and Zullo supposedly uncovered in Hawaii.
CBA isn't just calling out Arpaio on the issue, the group also is demanding that key Arizona elected officials say where they stand on the sheriff's birther madness.
