Zullo’s co-author is Jerome Corsi, a well-known political conspiracy writer.

Phoenix television station KTVK reports Corsi denied using Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in the country, as a promotional tool to sell his books and theories. Corsi supplied much of the research for the sheriff’s office investigation.
