The Secretary of State AND the Governor of Hawaii have both made statements, on behalf of the state of Hawaii that he was born there.
By definition, in my mind, that’s word coming from the state of Hawaii. The job of the sec of state is to be responsible for these types of issues and her office has not once, but twice stated he was born in Hawaii.
Um, Lingle’s comment was not a positive one. She said ‘he has claimed’ and then she offered something like ‘but no one seems to have heard of him here.’
