Now, Arizona electors, GOP head question Obama's 'legitimate' birth certificate
The chairman of the Arizona Republican Party and two other Arizona members of the Electoral College have questioned President Barack Obama's birth certificate during the formal casting of the state's electoral votes.
Arizona GOP Chairman Tom Morrissey said during the state's Electoral College meeting that Obama did not produce a 'legitimate' birth certificate, KNAU reports.
Morrissey's comments came as presidential electors nationwide formally elected Obama over Republican Mitt Romney.
"I'm not satisfied with what I've seen," Morrissey said during the meeting.
"I think for somebody in the president's position to not have produced a document that looks more legitimate, I have a problem with that," he added.
Morrissey was joined in doubting Obama's citizenship by two other Arizona electors, Gila County Republican Party Chairman Don Ascoli and former Graham County Republican Chairman John D. Rhodes, an international news agency reported.
According to the Huffington Post, Ascoli questioned whether Obama had been 'properly vetted as a legitimate candidate for president'.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R), who has vetoed bills to require presidential candidates to show a birth certificate to Arizona's secretary of state, said she disagreed with the trio's stance, the report said.
The comments of the Arizona Republicans comes a week after birther queen Orly Taitz filed a lawsuit in federal court in Arizona against Vice President Joe Biden and Congress to block Biden from counting the electoral vote, the report added.
