Rep. Trent Franks: Obama Should Release Long-Form Birth Certificate

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) accidentally walked intothe world of “birther” conspiracy theories last month, when a local newspaper seemed to report that Franks was considering a lawsuit against the president. Franks cleared the matter up immediately: He had merely considered suing for proof of the president’s citizenship before and after the 2008 election, but balked after becoming convinced that the president was born in America.
At the How to Take Back America Conferencein St. Louis, I talked to Franks and asked if he wanted to clear the air on the whole controversy. He jumped at the chance, explaining that he had always known that “it would hurt me politically, people would say ‘he’s a right-wing wacko’” if he filed a lawsuit. The president, said Franks, is American, “even if he acts un-American.” But he should release his long-form birth certificate.
Probably, Barack Obama could solve this problem and make the birthers, you know, back off, by simply showing us his long-form birth certificate. That’d solve the problem. There’s some other issue, I don’t know what it is, that he doesn’t want people to see the birth certificate on.
