At a recent town hall meeting. Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) told a crowd that she is not convinced that President Obama’s birth certificate is legitimate (video below).
Rep. Hartzler said: “I don’t know, I haven’t seen it. I’m just at the same place you are on that. You read this, you read that. But I don’t understand why he didn’t show that right away. I mean, if someone asked for my birth certificate, I’d get my baby book and hand it out and say ‘Here it is,’ so I don’t know.”
Later, Rep. Hartzler repeated her doubts to the press: I have doubts that it is really his real birth certificate, and I think a lot of Americans do, but they claim it is, so we are just going to go with that.”
Rep. Hartzler is not the only member of congress to call into question President Obama’s citizenship. Last month, Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) questioned Obama’s citizenship at an event.
