Say It Ain't So, Joe! Arizona Tea Party Groups Cancel Birther Bash After It Fails To Sell Tickets!
The event was set to be headlined by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe
Arpaio and another member of his "Cold Case Posse," both of whom have
been outspoken proponents of conspiracy theories about President Barack Obama's birth certificate being a forgery. 78-year-old singer Pat Boone, who was taped last year
speaking out about Obama's alleged Kenyan birthplace, was also set to
make an appearance. Rounding out the bill was Terrence Lakin, a former
Army doctor who was dismissed from the service and sentenced to six months in a military prison after refusing to deploy to Afghanistan over his birther beliefs.
Organizers admitted that the confab had "been cancelled due to inadequate ticket sales."
