Yesterday, at a townhall in Sedalia, Missouri's Fourth District Representative, Republican Vicky Hartzler, joined the Birther Caucus saying she has "a lot of doubts" about the authenticity of President Obama's birth certificate.
If Rep. Vicky Hartzler is in search of proof, I'd direct her here to the President's long form birth certificate which has been available for some time in an effort to put the issue to rest. Instead, it's obvious that instead of focusing on the economy, creating jobs and other issues important to people in Missouri's Fourth District and across the nation, Hartzler prefers to push a debunked myth regarding the President's citizenship. The full quote is below:
"You know I have a lot of doubts about all [Obama's birth certificate]....I don’t understand why he didn’t show that right away." When asked to clarify her doubts during press availability after the event, Hartzler said: “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.”
Thanks to our friends at Show Me Progress, the entire exchange was caught on video which is below.
No word yet on whether or not Missouri's Birther in Chief, Tim Jones, has officially welcomed Congresswoman Hartzler to the Missouri Birther Caucus.
