State Declares Obama Birth Certificate Real, Again

State officials again are confirming that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.

Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said Monday she has seen the
original birth records that verify Obama was born in Hawaii, and is
a "natural-born American citizen."

Fukino made the announcement in hopes of ending any lingering
rumors about Obama's citizenship. She issued a similar press
release Oct. 31.

State law bars release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.

Some Obama critics claim he is ineligible to be president, arguing he was not born in the U.S., as the Constitution requires.

They have challenged his citizenship in court.
