On Friday, Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett threatened to keep President Obama’s name off the Arizona ballot if he didn’t get verification regarding Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate. And now Hawaii has responded.
“I’m not a birther, I believe the president was born in Hawaii — or at least I hope he was,” Bennett told KFYI-RADIO’s Mike Broomhead last week. “My responsibility as secretary of state is to make sure the ballots in Arizona are correct and that those people whose names are on the ballot have met the qualifications for the office they are seeking.”
Hawaii’s attorney general has apparently given a response, according to KTVK-TV:
The Hawaii attorney general’s office has reportedly told Bennett that there are steps he needs to take in order to confirm President Obama’s birth records.
Those steps include Bennett proving that he legitimately needs confirmation in order to update the records at his office.
