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.

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?
