If there was ever any doubt that Jerome Corsi was never a journalist and is motivated only by trying to destroy President Obama by any means necessary, or that Corsi isn't a wholly owned subsidary of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, consider it dispelled now.
A May 15 WorldNetDaily email lets the cat out of the bag on Corsi's newest anti-Obama venture, a secret company to fund and support Joe Arpaio's cold case posse "investigation" of Obama's "eligibility." Corsi is even offering to hide the identities of his donors:
With the investigation entering a critical seventh month, key volunteers on the Cold Case Posse will have to drop out unless funds can be provided to substitute for the income they need to support their families.
Dr. Jerome Corsi has agreed to devote his corporation, Constitution Consultants LLC — a company he set up to help fund his investigative research -- to be 100 percent devoted to supporting Arpaio's Cold Case Posse volunteers, so the work of investigating Obama can continue without interruption.
Because Constitution Consultants is a New Jersey limited liability corporation, all donations must be after-tax and reported by Corsi to the IRS. The advantage to contributors is that contributions can remain anonymous because federal and New Jersey tax laws do not require disclosure of individual donors, as long as all donations are reported — a condition Corsi has a history of scrupulously meeting.
From now until the election in November, Corsi has committed to apply the donations he receives in Constitution Consultants to making sure he and the Cold Case Posse can pursue Obama until the last facts about Obama's identity and his eligibility to be president are uncovered and made public.
"This is one election we cannot afford to lose," says Corsi. "If Obama wins re-election, the fundamental freedoms our Founding Fathers defined under the Constitution are at risk of being lost. If Obama wins re-election, the very free enterprise system that has built the strongest middle class the world has ever known will be undermined in Saul Alinsky rhetoric of barely disguised class warfare."
If you want to make sure Sheriff Arpaio's Cold Case Posse of Obama's birth certificate and his eligibility to be president continue to conclusion, contribute to Constitution Consultants, so Sheriff Arpaio's law enforcement investigators can complete their vital work without interruption.
In short Corsi -- who has presented himself as a "journalist" -- is not only a researcher for the posse and an apparent "special deputy" for Arpaio, he's actually funding the posse he has written so lovingly about at WND (without disclosing that, of course).
It's also laughable for WND to claim that Corsi "scrupulously" discloses his actions, since we didn't know about his little money-laundering operation until now. WND itself hasn't reported about it on his website. Real journalism doesn't hide behind mysterious money, nor does it use that mysterious money as a base from which to launch smear jobs.
As we've detailed, WND is turning itself into an anti-Obama super PAC, and Corsi's operation is just another branch of that. Also, since the cold case posse is a nonprofit organization, it must disclose the donations from Corsi.
Will WND report on these donations to its readers? Or will it hide this just like it hides other inconvenient facts that contradict with its birther obsession?
