National Public Radio reports that Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett is “satisfied” with the birth documentation proved by the state of Hawaii. Bennett said that he only asked because 4,000 constituents, the so-called birthers, contacted him with concerns. In a statement released this afternoon, Bennett said:
Late yesterday, our office received the “verification in-lieu of certified copy” from officials within the Hawaii Department of Health that we requested in March.They have officially confirmed that the information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for the President matches the original record in their files.
Here is a copy of the actual verification, courtesy of AZCentral.com:
Reactions from the birthers are predictable. Here are some samples from the Obama Release Your Records blog:
- “A fake proven birth certificate with information to match words only and not a copy of original paper in Hawaii records, does not make the usurper a natural born citizen. What it is wrong with America? An elected Marxist can do what ever he wants and the people obey due to fear like in Castor’s Cuba.”
- “the copy matches our files ???
in other words, HI puts out a fake document
the AZ SOS sends back the fake document
now HI verifies that it has the same
information on the fake document that HI originally released
- “ONAKA WON’T SAY OBAMA WAS BORN IN HAWAII
NOR WILL ABERCROMBIE
FEAR! they should fear the noose for lying which is TREASON
so they won’t just come out and make a statement”
- “Thanks for the good work. Alvin Onaka is best advised to get his affairs in order, as he is now looking at several long years in the penitentiary”
- “It’s actually now a nightmare for Kapiolani Hospital. They are now confirmed as the birthplace of the 44th President of the USA, yet not a single record of Stanley Ann Dunham, or baby Barry ever having been patients there! Bennet (sic) has managed to do what Taitz, Abercrombie, Lingle, et al, have been trying to do now for the last 4 years: get Hawaii to once and for all, make an official claim that his long-form birth certificate-the same one that has been proven to be a ‘computer generated forgery’ as an official vital record on file at the HDOH.
