Eligibility Update: HI Elections Clerk Would Answer Questions on Record; LTC Lakin Court Martial Reactions06/13/2010
Yay! WorldNetDaily finally ended up at the same conclusion that I have RE: Mr. Tim Adams’ alleged statements regarding the lack of evidence of Mr. Obama’s vital records! And that conclusion is to get Mr. Adams on record with what he claims to know.
Per WND (the rest of the article is a re-hash of their last posting, with which I continue to take exception on their insinuations):
“The things I’ve said, I don’t mind testifying in court,” Tim Adams, the senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in the 2008 campaign, told WND in an exclusive interview.
“I was working there, and this is what it was. I’m not a lawyer, just a civil servant. I know what I know. I know what I was told by the hospitals and by my supervisors.”
A reminder: Mr. Adams has never claimed to have first-hand knowledge, to date, of Mr. Obama’s vital records; this is why specific questions being answered by Mr. Adams is so important (more on this in a moment).
Of course, just because someone goes on record (say, via an affidavit) with certain claims doesn’t mean much unless whatever question is at hand (in this case, the lack of birth records) has its day in Court. Nevertheless, the fact that someone who was directly associated with HI elections is a major step forward in this saga — certainly nobody else has come forward to disagree with the Department of Health’s official statement.
As I brought up at the top of my last posting, I, too, have a number of very specific questions that I’ve asked Mr. Adams. I did not ask him about anything except his dealings when he was under contract with HI elections. After all, in my view, his opinion of the Constitution is worth no more or less than yours or mine — and that’s irrelevant to the issue at hand. We’re talking about the existence — or the lack thereof — of birth records; constitutional questions would naturally, by extension, be answered from that point forward (once again, with the potential exception of the fact of Mr. Obama’s British citizenship at birth).
All of this brings up an excellent question. Since we already have the DoH Director on record with her view that Mr. Obama is a natural born citizen (noting, of course, that she is only an authority over public health records), what if we get Mr. Adams’ statements on record — informally via email and/or formally via affidavit — that he says that Mr. Obama does not have a birth certificate and such a statement can be substantiated?
I’m sure we’ll soon see.
