- UPDATE -
Miriam Goderich, a partner at the Dystel & Goderich agency, has come out with a statement concerning the words she wrote in 1991. She says she was in error when she wrote that Obama was born in Kenya and:
“This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me–an agency assistant at the time,”
According to archive.org, Dystel & Goderich had posted that Barack Obama was born in Kenya until April 2007. By April 21, 2007 and after he announced his bid for the presidency, the site had changed the birth place from Kenya to Hawaii.
Meanwhile in Arizona:
Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett is threatening to keep President Obama’s name off the state’s ballot in November unless he receives confirmation from Hawaii that it has a valid birth certificate on file for him.
Bennett, who spoke to Arizona radio host Mike Broomhead Thursday, said he requested the confirmation eight weeks ago and has not gotten it. Hawaii, he said, does not have to supply a certified copy of the birth certificate, merely send him an email confirming that it has one.
