Skip to comments.Arizona elections chief seeks proof of Obama's citizenship
Posted on 05/19/2012 3:44:41 AM PDT by Las Vegas Dave
Arizona's secretary of state said Friday he had asked officials in Hawaii to verify that Barack Obama was born in their state in order for the president's name to appear on the November ballot in Arizona.
Ken Bennett, who is Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign co-chairman in Arizona, said he made the request on behalf of a constituent.
Earlier this year, hardline Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio announced that an investigation by his office had found that Obama's birth certificate was a forgery.
Most Republican critics of Obama have given up pushing widely discredited long-running allegations that he was not born in the United States.
Bennett said he is attempting to confirm that Obama's name can appear on Arizona's presidential ballot, the Arizona Republic newspaper said.
While confirming on Friday that he had made the request, Bennett said he did not buy into the "birther" belief.
"First, I have been on the record since 2009 that I believe the president was born in Hawaii. I am not a 'birther,'" he said in a statement.
"At the request of a constituent, I asked the state of Hawaii for a for a verification in lieu of certified copy. We're merely asking them to officially confirm they have the president's birth certificate in their possession and are awaiting their response," he said.

Yahoo has no "Standing" to make such a Claim.
The press has all agreed that the claim has no merit, which for them equals “widely discredited”.
Just like the "consensus" among scientists on Global Warming...
Well Hell I can answer that stupid Question, Yes Idiot we have the Birth certificate in Our Posession,Goood Bye have a Nice day
The new claim will be that since he is POTUS, he must have been born in the USA.
I am convinced that it will take an act of God to bring out
the facts, and he does not seem to be talking.
America is in deep doodoo.
All it takes is one state to keep their electors from voting for Hussein. As long as the SecState follows State law, there isn’t a thing any d@amn judge can do about it.
For the protection of the innocent...the film shows how TUTTLE was changed to BUTTLE: here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=291QciJA2Wo
No matter where he was born he is not a Natural Born Citizen. Therefore he is not Constitutionallly eligible to be President.
For what it’s worth, I think he was born in Kenya.Again for what it’s worth, No matter where he was born he is an incompetent arrogant Nincompoop.
Mr. Gaynor, please provide examples of said “wide discredits.” I know of none. All the scientific forensic evidence points to fraud and forgery with willful intent to deceive the nation. Your side has not once disproved or even rebutted any of the evidence.
1. Did he lose the original long or short form that he talked about in one of his books? He wrote that he accidentally found his birth certificate---he didn't say if it was a short or long form---when he was a youngster.
2. Or, did the dog eat it?
3. Or, was the one he had in such bad shape that he wanted a new one to replace the one that was in such bad shape?
4. And if he still had his original long or short form but it was in bad shape, why didn't he simply show the birth certificate to the public and the press in 2007 and 2011, even though it was in bad shape?
5. 2007: Why didn't then Senator Obama order a long form back in 2007 instead of ordering a short form, because back then a person could still order a long form with no questions asked from Hawaii?
6. Courageous reporter: I wish a courageous reporter would confront Obama and ask him why he ordered a birth certificate back in 2007, and why he ordered a short form instead of long form back then.
Yahoo Fires its CEO for Overstated RésuméBy Casey Newton
May 13, 2012
Yahoo fired its second CEO in less than a year Sunday amid concerns about an exaggerated résumé, throwing the company into turmoil just months into its latest turnaround effort.
Maybe, maybe not. It depends on what the law says. If it states that a "Certification" of Obama's qualifications for office from Nancy Pelosi as representative of the Dem Presidential nominating process is all that is required I can easily see a judge overruling a request for further evidence. That "Certification" is all that most states ask for and that's certainly all they get.
Hopefully Arizona isn't that stupid and their law gives the Secretary of State more flexibility.
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome President Arrogant Nincompoop and Vice President Űber Dufus.
Well, if the claim that Obama wasn’t born in the country is truly discredited, then show us how it was discredited.
Uber Dufus was selected for that express purpose.
The last thing Obama wanted waiting in lin was a man with brains.
He couldn’t have made a better selection.
Almost all of the "birther" lawsuits have been dropped due to lack of standing. In this case, the secretary of state has a duty to determine the eligibility of a candidate and the NBC definition is murky at best.
If he had any balls he'd request a declaratory judgment in federal court as to Obama's status even based on his possibly forged birth certificate. In fact, arguably this could be a case of original jurisdiction that could be taken directly to the US Supreme Court. Anyone? ;-)
