Hawaii to Birthers: Thanks for writing, now aloha!
The island state’s Republican Gov. Linda Lingle signed into law on Wednesday a bill that would allow Hawaii to ignore repeated requests for President Obama’s birth certificate.

Speculation about the President’s birthplace has continued on the Internet for nearly two years, despite evidence that he was born in the nation’s 50th state in 1961.
“I had my health director, who is a physician by background, go personally view the birth certificate in the birth records of the Department of Health,” Lingle said during a recent interview on WABC Radio with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
“The President was, in fact, born at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii,” she said. “And that’s just a fact.”
