Carl Seel, R-Phoenix, and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will hold a news conference in support of House Bill 2480, which would require presidential and vice-presidential candidates to sign an affidavit confirming they are qualified to run for the position, and make it a crime of perjury to sign an inaccurate affidavit.

Friday, August 5, 2016 at 6:02 a.m. By Stephen Lemons
Is justice nigh? Unapologetic Minuteman, birther, and Tea Party darling Carl Seel wants to lay down the law as Moon Valley's justice of the peace.
Campaigns for justice of the peace are about as "down ballot" as you get in politics, but the GOP primary race for Moon Valley JP will be one to keep an eye on, mainly because of the stark choice voters face in that district.
In Arizona, the gig pays $101,500 per year on average.
At the time, Seel said he doubted the validity of President Obama's long-form birth certificate, a copy of which was released by the White House in 2011 in response to the incessant demands of birthers like Seel. Not surprisingly, Seel still sees "a multitude of things" that are hinky about the document, referencing a 2012 investigation by Sheriff Joe Arpaio as his go-to source on its inauthenticity.
Because this is America, for every group of concerned wingnuts, there's a cadre of wingnut-debunkers. One such birther debunker is Frank Arduini, an engineer and West Point grad who's active on the popular debunking website The Fogbow.
When I asked Arduini what he thought of Seel's assertions, he explained that what the White House released is a photocopy of the original, and that when compared against other long-form birth certificates issued at the time, the fonts match up just fine. He also pointed out that Arpaio's "investigation" was a rehash of previous birther theories that have been debunked numerous times.
"There essentially was nothing original that [Arpaio's investigator] ever went public with that came out of his investigation," Arduini declared.
