You may remember Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, convening a ‘posse’ to investigate Obama’s long form birth certificate. I blogged about it in March Madness. It now appears that Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett, might prevent Obama’s name from appearing on the ballot in Arizona, unless Hawaii certifies the authenticity of the long form certificate. Quite how they would do that, since the document is itself the final seal of authenticity, is beyond me. Here’s the story from the Seattle PI – Obama: the ‘birthers’ are back.
In a delicious twist of irony, Hawaii is withholding information from Bennett on the grounds that he hasn’t verified his own identity or right to request such verification. Sweet.
Here’s a news report, followed by Birther Madness in Arizona: The Movie!, if you really want to get into the details. I’m already bleeding from the ears.
