Hawaii Senator Claims Obama Hiding Real Father


In a new twist to the birther debate, a state senator from Hawaii alleged that the reason US President Barack Obama has not release a full birth certificate is not because he was born abroad, but because he is hiding the identify of his true father.

Republican State Senator Sam Slom said the real issue in this debate is not over Obama’s citizenship, but his fathers’.

“My particular point of view… is that [Obama] probably was born [in Hawaii] and that the real issue is not the birth certificate, but what’s on the birth certificate,’ Slom said in an interview on New York’s WABC 770 AM radio station. “It could have to do with what his name is on the birth certificate, who is actually listed as his father, the citizenship of the father.”

In the 2008 presidential campaign the debate over Obama’s birthplace and his citizenship began, but then settles for a while. Recent months however have seen an increase in birther debates. Some allege Obama may have been born in Kenya, or even Indonesia. The schemes range.

Potential Republican presidential contender Donald Trump recently released his certificate and then challenged Obama to do the same. He followed his challenge up by sending private investigators to Hawaii to research the US president’s birth.

Obama has spent millions in legal fees to conceal his past records – birth, health, employment and educational records. Slom argued that as long as Obama fights to hide information the more important the issue to find the truth remains.

“As long as that goes on,’ he concluded, ‘I think it’s a legitimate issue,” he said.

Slom is not alone. A numberof state legislatures have begin to address the birther issue by debating possible new laws that would require presidential candidates submit their official birth certificates in order to be included on state voting ballots.

    If the story is true,it is a matter of great shame to both Obama and Americans. But why a great country like America does not investigate such a critical issue associated with its President and let the matter settled permanently.
