It'll be business as usual today at the prison complex just outside central Phoenix where Joe Arpaio has spent the past two decades attempting to do justice to his self-proclaimed nickname: 'America's Toughest Sheriff.'

At 2.30pm, Arizona time, the rotund 80-year-old police chief will hold a press conference to unveil what a spokesman promises will be "breathtaking" new evidence that Barack Obama was born outside the USA, and is therefore ineligible to be president.

Mr Arpaio will be accompanied by his 'Cold Case Posse', a group of volunteer investigators he sent to Hawaii, where they claim to have unearthed "shocking" information which suggests that Mr Obama's birth certificate and other official documents are forged.
