Skip to comments.Arizona official to Hawaii: Show birth verification
Posted on 05/17/2012 7:34:20 AM PDT by Smokeyblue
A state official in Arizona has asked Hawaii for verification of the information on Barack Obamas birth certificate, the document that Sheriff Joe Arpaios special investigative team has concluded may be a forgery.
Members of the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party, who petitioned Arpaio to investigate Obamas eligibility, say they are awaiting word from the state secretary of state regarding whether Obamas name will be on the 2012 presidential ballot in Arizona.
Secretary of State Ken Bennett had promised to ask Hawaii officials for verification of Obamas documentation, vowing that if answers are not forthcoming, Obamas name will not be on the ballot.
The assurance came in an email to various constituents in Arizona who had contacted Bennetts office expressing concern that the name of an ineligible candidate would be presented to voters in November.
Because of the importance and profile of the presidents case, and at the request of many constituents, I have gone the extra step of asking the state of Hawaii to verify the facts contained in his birth certificate, Bennett wrote in response to concerns last month. Hawaii is bound by their own statutes to provide such verifications to other state officials in their official duties.
With all due respect, the [Arpaio] investigation has not proven anything other than raised probable cause that the birth certificate posted on the White House website may be a forgery. The next lawful step would be for the sheriffs office to turn their findings over to the county attorney for prosecution, he continued. Evidence would be brought on both sides and a judge should issue a decision.
Whether or not that happens, if Hawaii cant or wont provide verification of the presidents birth certificate, I will not put his name on the ballot, he wrote.

Bennetts communications director, Matt Roberts, told WND today that the secretary of state indeed has asked Hawaii for the answers. In fact, he said, there was a conversation about proper procedures to submit the request.
We are awaiting their response, he said.
Don’t Presidents have to go through a Security clearance ? If not it’s insane
Maybe they can put the guy in the Texas jail on the ballot....he got 40% of the vote in WV.
Promised to ask??? What's the holdup? Time to get on with it. We all know what the Hawaii response will be. They will just ignore the request. If Bennett sticks to his guns this could be a big deal. I've got my fingers crossed (for the umpteenth time).
I like this guy. Any bets on whetehr or not Feds show up witha bunch of mandatory write-in ballots if he follows through?
Nope. Presidents don’t have to get security clearance.
And since Clinton, neither do their staff.
Leftists don’t tend to qualify for security clearances.
I doubt even Bill himself could have gotten one.

PTL! Imagine if Arizone, a sovceriegn state, refuses to put Obama’s name on the ballot.
Imagine if ten or fifteen other states are embolden to do the same thing.
Can you say, “House of cards?”
This is GREAT news and wish the Arizona officials all the best in their efforts. Sheriff Joe and these folks are morden day minute-men and patriots! God bless ‘em, God protect ‘em.
America at the Crossroads of History
I want to think it’s terrific news but we might just get a Linda Lingle type response.
Ex. Hawaii says it’s legit so I will just take their word for it and not demand legal proof.
Time will tell.
> “A state official in Arizona has asked Hawaii for ***verification*** of the information ...”
It really depends on what is verification.
Hawaii is a corrupt state inhabited by corrupt democrats. Their state offices are populated by people placed through nepotism and political connections. They have no problem with committing fraud for a “brah” as long as there is someone covering their back.
So to them a verification could be a simple letter stating they have seen the birth certificate and it is the same as the one that is released.
What needs to be done is to convene a grand jury in AZ and have a court order sent to the State of Hawaii requesting a certified copy of the long form BC and the microfiche reels of the births in that period of time.
The only way this ever gets an authentic answer is if Congress, or maybe a new, honest President, demands the original certificate be sent to them for inspection. Anything else will be deflected with lies. They'll have to throw several of the Hawaiian officials in jail before anybody will send them the real one, and no SOS can do that.
Interesting to note here is that, with this request, the AZ-SOS has now entered the Obamugabe BC into the official “public record”. My understanding is that since it was never introduced as evidence in any court proceeding, their digitized document was safe from prosecution.
The AZ-SOS gave Maricopa County Prosecutor the “green light” to bring charges of fraud and forgery regardless of HI’s response.
Pass the popcorn.
When I worked at ITT Industries, I was in charge of doing background checks for visitors to the manufacturing plant. The president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama would not have gotten clearance - to visit a MACHINE SHOP - but he's got the country's nuclear football. It is, it's just insane
Nope. Presidents do not. And my guess is that staff doesn't either anymore. (They used to. See Gary Aldrich's Unlimited Access.)
:: Dont Presidents have to go through a Security clearance ? ::
Nope. Having been elected by The People negates such action. Reason: If a duly elected POTUS failed a Security Clearance check, would that over-turn a legal election?
Why do I get the feeling that Hawaii will just direct Ken to the DOH website’s Barack Obama misinformation page or that they’ll send a copy of Fuddy’s letter saying that she provided two copies of Obama’s certified long-form to Obama’s courier girl?? Hopefully he’ll demand an official verification, but I’m not holding out hope.
We are reaching a third world level of political corruption and their is no cross party consensus against it. Also the public mouths platitudes about being against it but does little, particularly at the state, county and local level.
We desperately need term limits (a decade in an elected office is enough!) at all levels, its not a panacea, but at least it makes corruption more complicated to undertake.
If they truly did, do you think any of them would become President?
I have had background checks that took six months to complete to work for the Feds, and still getting therapy for the microscope in my posterior.
No, I believe at some point, the politicians in Washington reach a status level that their background (and loyalties) and not investigated.
Look at this way. If I as a police officer admitted to using coke like Obama did, I would not be a police officer, yet he is the CINC, and determines who my ultimate LE boss is? Something wonky there.
