New York, Jan 23 (ANI): Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie has dropped his plans to squash claims that the US President Barack Obama wasn't born in his state due to a law barring him from disclosing the information.
State Attorney General David Louie told the governor that it's against state law to release private documents, including an individual's birth documentation without the person's consent, reports the New York Daily News.
"There is nothing more that Gov. Abercrombie can do within the law to produce a document," said Abercrombie's spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz."Unfortunately, there are conspirators who will continue to question the citizenship of our president," added Cruz.
Abercrombie launched an effort in December to squash conspiracy theories that President Obama was born elsewhere.
It has long been claimed that that President Obama is ineligible to serve as President as wasn't born in the United States. It has also been argued that he was born in Kenya, and was really a citizen of the United Kingdom or Indonesia. (ANI)
