World Net Daily seems to be of the opinion that some things that happen in Phoenix, should stay in Phoenix. One of the secondary definitions of limbo, is a state of neglect. From the image below, one has to wonder if Special Deputy Mike Zullo, co-author of A Question of Eligibility might be in World Net Daily (WND) limbo, hidden away like a red-headed stepchild. Notice this language:
The e-book is co-authored by Jerome Corsi, the two-time No. 1 New York Times bestselling author, who wrote “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” and the e-book sequel, “Where’s the Real Birth Certificate?”
Here is the link where you can see this for yourself.
Mike Zullo is listed as the co-author on the cover of the book, to the left of the blurb, but it is smaller and difficult to read. Presumably, Zullo gets some air-time inside the book. But isn’t it interesting that he is just glossed-over in the sales blurb??? One would think that having a real, live Maricopa County Cold Case Posse (CCP) investigator as the co-author of your book would be a great selling point.
Hmmm. Maybe it is that whole before and after thing. When an investigator signs a deal and writes a book AFTER an investigation, then it adds to the credibility of the book. But, when the book deal comes BEFORE the investigation, then it makes you feel sort of queasy, and the pecuniary interest shatters any credibility. As is pretty evident in this Internet Article which appeared 2 days after the original March 1, 2012 Cold Case Posse press conference:
PHOENIX — The lead investigator in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation into President Obama’s birth certificate is profiting from the case.
Mike Zullo, a retired detective and volunteer Maricopa County Sheriff Posse member, is listed as the co-author of “A Question of Eligibility,” an e-book for sale on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The book is a copy of the investigation findings presented to the press on Thursday.
Corsi said he informed Arpaio of his plans to sell the investigation’s findings six months ago, at the start of the investigation.
Still, the sale of the investigation is raising eyebrows and ethical questions from Arpaio critics.
“I’m shocked to learn about this book,” said Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox.

Returning to the WND sales blurb, it would not have taken up much space for them to list Zullo. Just one sentence. I think the conclusion is obvious that World Net Daily feels sheepish about the sleazy conduct and does not wish to call extra attention to it.
As well they should.
