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? ;-)
Since there is no birth certificate in existence, this request is actually the perfect approach. Someone in the state of Hawaii would have to risk being charged with misprision of treason if they can be proven a liar about this. Remember, they do not know what evidence the posse has in it's possession. In my opinion, this seemingly simple, reasonable request is a trap. A brilliant one.
That is a wild assertion not backed by a single fact. Indeed, we are now seeing our first official push-back, with a secretary of state finally asking for some paperwork backing the Kenyan usurper's claim of natural born citizenship.
The naked propaganda served up by the MSM is utterly disgusting. It is as lockstep as the press under the worst political systems: every article has multiple declarations of faith in their Dear Reader and the utter certainty that he was born in Hawaii; every article denounces critics as cretins and racist fools.
I have over the years happened to be near a number of news events, and virtually none of the press accounts have been completely accurate, and often wildly inaccurate. But this sycophantic behavior with respect to the Kenyan usurper is so absurd, so over-the-top, that had I not seen it first hand I would never have believed it. It is a level of worship that a Stalin or a Kim would have been satisfied with.
“Most Republican critics of Obama have given up pushing widely discredited long-running allegations that he was not born in the United States.”
FU and your lies, Timmy.
True, but we keep letting the gangsters regroup and assemble plausible documentation. Given enough time someone can create a forgery based on the BC that was created electronically and is now appearing on the official Whitehouse website. It doesn’t even have to be a good forgery, just a plausible one considering the MSM’s desire to accept the running narrative.
BJ and his Telecommunications Act of 1996 set the stage.
“For the children,” he told us.
See this, libs? This is called “pursuing a redress of greivances”.
Romney's pet stooge in Arizona - "do you have a valid, original, certified copy of obomba's birth certificate?
Hawaii's obomba stooges - "Why yes. Yes we do. Why do you ask?
Romney's Arizona stooge - Well that settles it then folks. obomba really is a US Citizen. Our friends in Hawaii say so so let's drop this all of this nonsense that BHO is a Kenyan born invader illegally and unconstitutionally occupying America's house. Our friends in Hawaii would never lie to us and who cares what obomba has said in the past about his place of birth? As rush just said yesterday, (paraphrasing) obomba is just a grand-standing, narcissistic, skinny, big eared, crack smoking, coke snorting, bisexual turd saying he was born in Kenyan in order to 'make himself sound more exotic'.
"I believe he was born in the United States" - Rush Limbaugh 5/18/2012
There you have it folks. Rush has given obomba his seal of approval. Hawaii will parrot what they've been "saying" all along and at no time will anyone have to prove of disprove anything obomba has said or done.
I have to say... The whole global conspiracy reeks to high heaven on both sides of the isle. I'm becoming more and more convinced that there really is no difference in either side's objectives especially after listening to rush yesterday poo-pooing all the evidence about obomba that's been coming out the last couple of months. What's he afraid of? And to have the nerve to ask why "most Americans" have never heard about obomba's drug use, homosexuality, place of birth, etc. is outrageous. Rush... like all the main stream press has either completely ignored all the evidence and refused to vet obomba or treated those that have been vetting and exposing obomba like citizens of Roswell in 1948.
And sean hannity is even worse. That little weasel runs around pretending like he's been sounding the alarm all along when in fact, he, like rush has been in the obomney camp all along.
At least that's how I see it.
If something isn't done soon there will be NO CHANCE of saving American.
It may already be too late.
You would think that after all the hassle this Administration has put Arizona through, the least their Sec of State could do in response is ban Obama from the ballot until and unless overwhelming proof of natural-born citizenship can be established.
If any state should be experts on immigration and naturalization by now, it would be Arizona. Maybe the good sherrif oughta arrest Obama under suspicion of being an illegal alien if he ever sets foot in the state? Naw... that would be too good.
Have you noticed the slight change over the last couple of days?
Several now becomes one?
Despite the discovery of the above just this week, the press continues to plug their collective ears and loyally proclaim their total belief in the Kenyan usurper.
Even Stalin would have been pleased to have received such a level of frantic fanaticism as evinced by the Kenyan usurper's minions in the press.
Actually, Post #19 is the key, IMHO.
But....we know how the USSC is stacked, right now, and there has been a concerted effort since the beginning to avoid the Issue, at all costs, to stifle a confrontation there.
The dog ate it and then he ate the dog.
The problem is though, the stte of Hi has already said they have such a BC for 0dumbo.
and if asked they will just send the fake on 0dumbo created
but I am glad AZ at least is asking.
OK so when Kenya is retroactively admitted as
the 51st state will it or will it not be accepted as
a guy marriage commonwealth? I’m confused.
If Arizona took the case directly to the SCOTUS under original jurisdiction then arguably Sotomayor and Kagan would have to recuse themselves as a decision for ineligibility would nullify their appointments. ;-)
“asking them to officially confirm”
Actually quite a smart move.
By asking for official confirmation, he is putting someone at risk of perjury.
Anyone in Hawaii willing to go to jail for a Messiah that could be defeated in November, exposing them to a long prison sentence?
And he still has NOTHING from them. Why would it take eight weeks (or even four) for any one of the officials from Hawaii who would have authority over the records to write up a letter, have it notarized and mailed.
Uncle Sham, I believe you nailed it: Since there is no birth certificate in existence, this request is actually the perfect approach. Someone in the state of Hawaii would have to risk being charged with misprision of treason if they can be proven a liar about this. Remember, they do not know what evidence the posse has in it's possession. In my opinion, this seemingly simple, reasonable request is a trap. A brilliant one.
What ordinary person would put themselves in that position voluntarily. Of course the Thug Chicago Way could be brought to bear and Hussein could promise a pardon--but maybe the pardon wouldn't be valid since HE'S NOT ELIGIBLE!
The way the request was made seems to allow Hawaii to simply say “Yeah - we got it” - raising nothing to view or to question than what’s already out there. IMHO. ;-(
Someone has to put their signature to PAPER on that, that they CONFIRM IT, at risk of perjury.
They fear what Arpaio knows.
I don't expect anything "official" to be coming from Hawaii anytime soon.
I’ve said it before, Biden was chosen so, if and when it was needed, he could be Walpin’d away.
There are so many cracks in the dam holding back the truth about obama, I don't see how it'll hold up during the election's rainy season...assuming it even lasts that long.
Let the sky fall.
Yet....the current governor of HI has publicly stated that there is no such “animal” in the records.
Check. Your move HI.
Remember that he requested their certification 8 weeks ago and “contacted” them 4 weeks ago.
If he were going to accept an anonymous “we got it” from them, it would be over. I think he must have required a specific official’s certified word that there is an ORIGINAL in their files and no one has been willing to do that yet for TWO MONTHS!
Keep in mind that the Governor promised to show it and then admitted he couldn’t and another Health Dept. Official has publicly declared THERE ISN’T ONE.
