Arizona Secretary of State receives confirmation from Hawaii on birth certificate

May 23, 2012

It looks like President Obama's name will appear on the Arizona ballot in November.  Secretary of State Ken Bennett says he got an e-mail from Hawaii officials late Tuesday, confirming they have an original birth certificate for the president.

"There's 12 points, the first one says a birth certificate is on file with the Department of Health indicating that Barack Hussein Obama II was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. And then the second through twelfth points each deal with a different point we asked in the request," Bennett said.

Bennett says that's good enough for him, but that he doubts it'll quell the controversy.
