Hawaii considering law to ignore Obama 'birthers'


HONOLULU (AP) -- Birthers beware: Hawaii may start ignoring your repeated requests for proof that President Barack Obama was born here.

As the state continues to receive e-mails seeking Obama's birth certificate, the state House Judiciary Committee heard a bill Tuesday permitting government officials to ignore people who won't give up.

Officials at the state Department of Health say the state gets between 10 and 20 e-mails seeking verification of Obama's birth each week, most of them from outside Hawaii.

Both the director of the Health Department and the state registrar of vital statistics have verified that the Health Department holds Obama's original birth certificate.
