Hawaii Law Shuns Obama Birth Document Requests
The law is aimed at so-called “birthers,” who claim Obama is ineligible to be president. They contend the Democratic president was born outside the United States, and therefore doesn’t meet a constitutional requirement for being president.
A tad mixed up:
Lingle didn’t elaborate on her reasons for signing the bill, but state Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino previously issued statements saying that she’s seen vital records that prove Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen.
Both Fukino and the state registrar of vital statistics have verified that the Health Department holds Obama’s original birth certificate.
The first time around – the second it was changed to “original vital recordS”.
What has the ACLU said about this law, which is not just directed at birthers, that limits an inidividual’s access to Freedom of Information material?
