Arizona’s Joe Arpaio, an infamous opponent of immigration rights and proponent of birthersim (the conspiracy theory that President Obama is not an American citizen) chastised the current crop of GOP candidates for not embracing his ideology. Arpaio thinks the Republicans are “hiding” issues of Obama’s eligibility for office. Huffington Post reports:

“This is a potential crime,” he continued. “How come everybody’s hiding this?”
