Hawaii to Birthers: Talk to the Hand

Wed, Apr 28, 2010 at 11:23:00 am

As we noted last month, the state of Hawaii has pretty much had it with Birthers demanding to see Barack Obama’s real, true, official, not fake, certified, long-form birth certificate, and yesterday the state legislature passed a bill that will allow officials to ignore these obsessive repeated requests from loons.

The measure approved by the state Legislature on Tuesday would carve an exemption in the state’s public records law and allow officials to ignore all kinds of duplicative requests, including those for Obama’s birth certificate.

Hawaii Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino has issued two statements since 2008 saying she had seen vital records proving Obama is a natural-born American citizen. Obama was born in Honolulu to a Kenyan father and an American mother.

But state officials say they still get between 10 and 20 e-mails each week seeking verification of Obama’s birth.
