Hawaii To Arizona: Prove You Need The Birth Certificate


Hawaii’s Office of the Attorney general is telling Arizona’s Secretary of State (pictured) it has to prove it needs President Obama’s birth certificate for Hawaii to comply.

Special Assistant Joshua Wisch said late Friday that Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett hasn’t done that despite numerous email and phone exchanges between their offices.

Wisch says Hawaii state laws require Bennett to show legal authority that this office needs the records to update its official lists as part of its ordinary work.

Wisch says as soon as Bennett gives Hawaii adequate authority, the Aloha State will verify Obama’s birth.
