1 year ago
Threats of Obama missing from AZ. ballot forced Hawaii's hand.
After several inquiries by Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett and controversial Maricopa County Sherrif Joe Arpaio, Hawaii has again released President Obama's birth certificate.
The state of Hawaii released the certificate yesterday so President Obama can appear on Arizona's ballot in November, after Bennett made threats that he wouldn't.
Joshua Wisch, special assistant to Hawaii Atty. Gen. David Louie, said that Hawaii gave Arizona the verification they were looking for.
Hawaii didn't give in to Bennett and Arpaio's requests easily as they asked Bennett for proof that he needed the records for normal business.
