As the sun sets on the Arizona legislature with no sign of a veto override of the Arizona birther bill HB2177, backers of similar legislation in Indiana are trying to get a summer study committee together to push their proposal forward.
The bill’s sponsor, state senator Mike Delph, told radio station WIBC that his bill (SB 114, which so far has been unable to achieve a hearing) is not about President Obama, but about regaining public confidence. “Trust but verify” is how he puts it. Delph’s bill differs from the vetoed Arizona bill in that it simply calls for a “certified copy of the candidates birth certificate”.
I’ve always had a warm spot in my heart for Indiana.
