Where on there is the gender, date of birth, island of birth, mother’s name, or father’s name ever mentioned?
If Onaka doesn’t specifically mention it then he did not verify it as requested. The only reason for him to not verify something he was requested by a qualified requestor is if he CAN’T verify it because that claim was not made on a legally-valid record.
IOW, unless you can show me “male”, “Aug 4, 1961”, “Oahu”, “Stanley Ann Dunham”, and “Barack Hussein Obama”, Onaka has effectively confirmed that none of those claims are made on a legally-valid HI BC.
So show me where those items are mentioned.
BTW, TPM Muckraker publishing only HALF of Bennett’s request is yellow journalism to the millionth degree. It’s like cutting out a bunch of conversation from a transcript, so that one question is asked and all you hear is the answer to a different question. To know what Onaka is SUPPOSED to verify if the record is valid, you have to know EVERYTHING that was asked. In order to get the half of the request that they published, TPM Muckraker had to also get the other half of the request. THEY EDITED THAT OUT, which is literally journalistic malpractice. Why did they do that?
The state of Arizona considered Hawaii’s answer to be adequate. That suggests courts would as well. You can postulate fraud, but you have no evidence that Hawaii deliberately misled Arizona.
“§338-14.3 Verification in lieu of a certified copy. (a) Subject to the requirements of section 338-18, the department of health, upon request, shall furnish to any applicant, in lieu of the issuance of a certified copy, a verification of the existence of a certificate and any other information that the applicant provides to be verified relating to the vital event that pertains to the certificate.
(b) A verification shall be considered for all purposes certification that the vital event did occur and that the facts of the event are as stated by the applicant.
(c) Verification may be made in written, electronic, or other form approved by the director of health.”
Let me repeat:
“A verification shall be considered for all purposes certification that the vital event did occur and that the facts of the event are as stated by the applicant.”
