New York, Jan 21 (ANI): Officials in Hawaii have discovered documents indicating that US president Barack Obama was born in their state, says new governor.
Gov. Neil Abercrombie, who took office in December, told Honolulu's Star-Advertiser that 'our investigation' indicates there is a recording of his birth, reports the New York Daily News.
"It actually exists in the archives, written down," he says.
The new Democratic head of the state vowed when he took office that he would do his best to end the debate over Obama's birth, which began in 2008 during the presidential campaign.
"We'll do what we can as quickly as we can to make it inevitable that only those who wish the President ill, only the ones with a political agenda, will be the ones doing this kind of thing," Abercrombie told CNN in December.
During that interview, Abercrombie said his goal to combat birthers was a personal one.
"It's a matter of principle with me. I knew his mom and dad. I was here when he was born. Anybody who wants to ask a question honestly could have had their answer already," said the 72-year-old.
However, Birthers have insisted that the President, born in 1961, is not eligible to be commander in chief. Some believe his Certification of Live Birth is fake and he was really born in Kenya.
Others argue that Obama is a citizen of the United Kingdom or Indonesia. (ANI)
