Former Representative Steve Pearce of New Mexico is running to regain his old House seat. While various conservative candidates tiptoe around birther language, Pearce jumped in with both feet when he pulled out the old fake travel ban to Pakistan.
My position is that Barack Obama raised the most significant questions himself. He said, after he came to the U.S., that he traveled to Pakistan. Now at the point that he traveled to Pakistan it was not legal to go there with a U.S. passport. And so he, himself, raises the greatest questions. I think that those questions need to be asked. Now, then, my question would be to you all at what importance, what importance? You can typically fight two or three major battles in a year, major, and for me, if we don’t get our economy going, nothing else works.

And this person wants to be in Congress? I wouldn’t want an intellect like that on the local town council.
The travel ban to Pakistan, touted by contributors to right-wing web site WorldNetDaily, has been thoroughly debunked here and elsewhere.
