The Freepers are at it again and Citizen Wells is all over it, this time with a claim that the person who helped forge the COLB has come forward. Here’s the post. [Despite claims that this article had been “scrubbed” from the Internet, I had no problem finding it on the Free Republic site.]
Chanise Foxx, free republic

“HUGE NEWS AT FREEREPUBLIC!!!
“My name is Chanise Foxx. I work at a office supply store in Kenwood, IL. After nearly 3 years of silence and death threats to me and my family to stay quiet, I am compelled to come forward and tell the world my secret.
“I helped Obama campaign staffer Divorah Adler create a fake birth certificate for use in the famous Fact Check story to prove the world of Obama’s birth in the 2008 election. Divorah approached me in early 2007 and held onto the birth certificate until she released it in August 2008.
“As I’ve been making fake IDs part-time for local college students for about eight years now, faking a birth certificate was actually quite easy. Our first step was to get our hands on someone else’s birth certificate from Hawaii. We then created the stationary to match…”e had to create an embossed stamp and rubber signature stamp for Hawaiian officials. With the help of a high-resolution scanner at the store, I did most of my work at night when the place was vacant…”
Did you catch the obvioius mistake? Obama’s COLB was released in June of 2008, not August. Another problem, is that is no Kenwood, IL–it’s only a neighborhood. 411.com didn’t turn up any Chanise Foxx either nor does Google have any reference to the name in the past.
It turns out that this is a recycled spoof. [Scroll down the the picture of Chanise.]
