Arizona Maricopa County Assessor Paul Petersen, who was indicted in three different states for illegally trafficking children through his adoption agency, has requested that his trial in Arkansas be delayed for almost a year. He is currently free on bond. The hub of Petersen's alleged illegal activities was Maricopa County, in Arizona, where he serves as the County Assessor, an elected official. Authorities in Arizona have been unsuccessful in removing him from office so far, but they recently seized many of his assets. So far, no one in the mainstream corporate-sponsored media seems to be doing any investigative work on their own to try to uncover this scandal further. It is hard to believe that Paul Petersen could have accomplished this operation on his own, especially since he served in a public office as County Assessor for Maricopa County. Health Impact News has conducted its own investigation, and if federal law enforcement is serious about stopping child trafficking flowing through Arizona, Mr. Petersen's connections should be investigated. What about the judges who approved these adoptions? What connection does Paul Petersen's case have to former Arkansas Senator Linda Collins-Smith's murder? Here is what our own investigations have uncovered so far.
