Here is a list of things I don’t know about the COLB:
- How many there are. The Obama campaign suggests that several were ordered back in 2007 (long before there were any “birthers”) for the purpose of meeting proof of eligibility requirements.
- How many were sent to state secretaries of state. One or more COLB’s could have been submitted with the paperwork to get on the ballot, but I don’t know that.
- Who else has seen the COLB. We know FactCheck.org staff saw it (and photographed it) and presumably various Obama staffers. But, for example, did Nancy Peolsi (who swore that Obama was eligible in an Affidavit) see it?
- Where the COLB is today.
- If it will be lodged in the Obama Presidential Library one day.
There is one thing I do know about the COLB: it says Barack Obama was born in Honolulu in 1961.
