Hawaii verifies Obama birth records to Arizona

Hawaii verifies Obama birth records to Arizona. A nearly three-month-long tussle between two states over President Obama’s birth records may be at an end.

The state of Hawaii said late Tuesday it has provided verification of the president’s birth to Arizona’s secretary of state, who claimed he needed proof of Obama’s citizenship before he could place his name on the state’s November ballot.

Joshua Wisch, special assistant to Hawaii Attorney General David Louie, told The Associated Press that the matter is now resolved.

Hawaii didn’t give in to the request quickly or easily, pressing Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett for proof that the records were needed as part of normal business.

Wisch said Hawaii got the necessary proof, so it sent Bennett’s office the verification.

A spokesman for Bennett said he received Hawaii’s verification and will comment Wednesday. It was not clear if the new information would satisfy Bennett or bring the dispute to a close.

In a radio interview last week, Bennett insisted he is “not a birther. I believe the president was born in Hawaii — or at least I hope he was.”

But, he said, “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.”
