Washington, Feb 27 (ANI): Another Republican lawmaker has joined the ranks of conservative ‘birthers’ who have raised doubts about the validity of the President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
During an appearance on a radio show, Michigan state Senator Tom Casperson was asked if he believed that Obama was born in the US.
Casperson replied he ‘doesn’t know’ the real answer, adding that it was ‘strange’ that the mainstream media has not explored the issue, the Huff Post reports.
He said that if had been a different president, like say George W. Bush, the media have been digging into that like there was no tomorrow and trying to get to the bottom of it.
Although the president was born in Hawaii, his birthplace has long been a topic of debate among some conservative conspiracy theorists.
In 2011, the White House responded by releasing Obama’s long-form birth certificate, but the move did little to quiet the most fervent birthers. (ANI)
