Controversy surrounding the Obama birth certificate

The Obama “long form” birth certificate has been in question for a long time. A large movement is  asking for his official birth record (see reasons below). Likewise, another movement is growing — saying that the first group is nuts and is wasting everyone’s time.

Lawsuits are continually being filed for proof of President Obama’s eligibility. The latest from someone in the military.

The “Vault or Long Form” certificate has been wrongly interchanged with the “Certificate of Live Birth” as proof of birth although they are two different documents.

Although I do not subscribe to either side of the debate, here are some of the alleged reasons floating around on the internet fueling the movement for the President to prove his eligibility to lead our country. (i.e. do not shoot this messenger)

Hawaiian law: [§338-17.8]  Certificates for children born out of State.  (a)  Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.
     (b)  Proof of legal residency shall be submitted to the director of health in any manner that the director shall deem appropriate.  The director of health may also adopt any rules pursuant to chapter 91 that he or she may deem necessary or proper to prevent fraudulent applications for birth certificates and to require any further information or proof of events necessary for completion of a birth certificate.
     (c)  The fee for each application for registration shall be established by rule adopted pursuant to chapter 91. [L 1982, c 182, §1]
