PHOENIX -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has sent a letter to the Director of the U.S. Selective Service System headquarters in Arlington, Virginia requesting the agency to conduct an investigation into Barack Obama's Selective Service registration form from 1980.

This comes after the preliminary findings of Arpaio's six- month investigation that determined it may a forgery.

The letter also asks for an original form so forensic document examiners can analyze the document for authenticity.

Apraio claims he is just doing his job, and isn't targeting the president.

"I'm not accusing anyone right now of any violation of law," Arpaio said. "However when you look at the birth certificate and the selective service form I think there's pretty good evidence that there's a possible forgery."

Arpaio is asking for a response within 30 days. If no response is given, he will then decide if his office will move forward with its own investigation.

"While my office will continue pursuing this investigation, I have spoken of the need to enlist the aid of other agencies," Arpaio said. "As a first step to that end, I am now requesting the assistance of the U.S. Selective Service System asking them to conduct a concurrent investigation to verify the authenticity of this document."
