Nirthers Never Go Away, They Just Get Crazier

In a video we posted last month, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Arizona) was the only Republican politician who went on record with an unequivocal denunciation of the mindless “Birther” movement.

Well, looks like Franks may now be joining the kookspiracy.

The other main issue dealt with numerous speakers questioning Obama’s birth certificate and why there wasn’t an investigation into whether he is a naturalized citizen. One woman said a newspaper announcement of his birth in Hawaii was not sufficient. Another asked how he could have a passport without a birth certificate.

Franks said there was not enough evidence that Obama is not an American citizen. He did say there was a lot of conflicting evidence of Obama’s citizenship and that he was considering filing a lawsuit, the only congressman to do so. Franks asked why the president did not simply produce a birth certificate.

The GOP is being held hostage by its own lunatic base. David Weigel links to another article with a comment from someone who was at the meeting, claiming that Franks was hounded by no fewer than nine Birther fanatics.
