A video (audio with slides actually) has appeared on YouTube from a radio program called “Political Cesspool” hosted by James Edwards. Edwards’ guest is identified as Tim Adams “Chief Election Clerk” from the city and county of Honolulu, Hawaii during the 2008 presidential election.
It’s bad enough that a man named Ako Abdul-Samad is actually an elected state representative in Iowa.
Just a sample quote from the show’s host Edwards, who also carries this quote on his web page:
James Edwards is becoming a very important force in the movement for White advocacy. He hosts the The Political Cesspool, a weekly 3-hour radio show where he interviews a view range of personalities on their ideas (including me on more than one occasion). And he has become a director of the American Third Position, a political party that aims makes an explicit appeal to White identity and White interests.
In the video, Adams says of the elections staff in Honolulu “in our professional opinion Barack Obama was not born in the United States and there is no Hawaii long form birth certificate.” Adams claims that he (or at least someone in his office) had access to Social Security and NCIS [sic] systems that they “used on average voters” to verify eligibility to vote.
What Adams actually saw (if anything) is left to our imagination. He never says what he found or failed to find on any database that led him to his “professional” opinion that Barack Obama was not born in the United States. Indeed if you listen carefully he doesn’t claim that anything he found in those databases is the basis of his conclusion, or how a temporary worker gets to claim a “professional opinion.”
I contacted the City Clerk’s office in Honolulu, the office that oversees the Elections Division. They did indeed have a Tim Adams who worked as a clerk there (I understand from another source that he was a “senior clerk” and not “chief clerk”) but I was assured that that office had no access to state birth records.
Since President Obama was not a resident of Hawaii in 2008, there is no legitimate reason for election workers to be poking around in federal databases for information on him. That means that if they did look, they are guilty of a federal crime. Oops.
