Since last year’s presidential campaign, there have been an array of conspiracy theories about the eventual President Obama. From being born into the Muslim faith to being a trained terrorist, the theory nation that so many have held onto is the notion that Obama is not a legal U.S. citizen because he has yet to present a birth certificate that suits the naysayers.
The last few weeks there have been several inquiries that question the validity of the live certificate of birth Obama provided, making claims that the official document is not the equivalent to a state issued birth certificate.
To dispel the rumors, a Hawaii health director said she had seen with her own eyes, the original certificate of birth people have been hemming and hawing about.
“I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barrack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago….”
In late October of last year, Fukino made her first attempt to cease the clamor surrounding Obama’s natural citizenship that had “birthers” claiming the then Senator would be ineligible to run for office without solid proof he was born in the U.S., according to USA Today.
