HI Vexatious birther bill signed by Gov Lingle

Birth certificate posts

Yesterday, Gov Lingle signed the Vexatious Birther Bill (Hawaii SB2937 SD1 HD1 CD1), which:

Exempts disclosure of government records in response to duplicate requests from a single requestor, provided that the agency to which the request was made satisfies specified requirements. Sunset date on July 1, 2014.

[Just realized I haven’t posted Lingle’s statement about sending Dr Fukino to check barry’s birth records.] HERE.

AP title even though they know it’s not limited to “birthers”.

Hawaii Law Shuns Obama Birth Document Requests

Wrong, again:

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?
