From now on, this is Ken BennettArizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett has been in hot pursuit of extra-double email verification from the Hawaii government of Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Bennett made a pledge to the state’s voters — no extra-double email verification, no Obama on the ballot. What’s the big deal, haters? He’s only seeking this unique extra verification because serious, trustworthy sages such as Jerome Corsi and Joe Arpaio and his 1,200 worst constituents told him it was necessary. It is his duty, to get the birth certificate. Again. For just Obama. It is not pandering, he promises. (Sadly for him, the only other explanation besides pandering would be that he’s a genuine warm-blooded idiot.) Now who wants to read his emails with Hawaii officials where he can’t offer them a valid statutory need for his request and so turns to whining instead? Oh, please let this play out for a while, please please please!

This story will approach optimal comedy volume if it lasts through the summer and into the fall — cross your fingers for court action! — and this Bennett dupe begins to sweat more and more each day about this extremely voluntary quest he’s embarked on. He could win Idiot of the Year, even, if this becomes a major national story a couple of months before a presidential election. Uh, oh… we’re getting our hopes up again, and the doctor’s instructions were pretty clear about that… so, onward: Here are Bennett’s first and last emails to give you an indication of the trend; the rest can be found at TPM:

Arizona Secretary of State


From: Bennett, Ken
Sent: Friday, April 27, 2012 11:00 AM
To: ‘Brian Reilly’
Cc: Tom Ballantyne; Jeff Lichter; Jim Wise; Gabe Zolna; ‘crossroadswithvan’; Wesley W. Harris; Tom Jenney; ‘rodriddle’
Subject: RE: Your Oath of Office, Ken?

Dear Brian, Tom, and All,

Thank you for your emails seeking resolution to President Obama’s qualification for office and, therefore, his right to be on our ballot. In your calls for me to make sure he follows the law and is “subject to the same rational and reasonable standards as every other citizen”, it is imperative that we follow the rule of law as well.

Arizona law requires an individual to file nomination papers wherein they certify they meet the qualifications of the office sought and have met other requirements such as committee formation and signatures. We review elements in the filing that can be verified on their face (completeness, numbers of signatures, etc.). Challenges to the remaining facts in the filing (validity of each signature, residency and other qualification aspects) are solely brought through legal process in the courts.

Because of the importance and profile of the President’s case, and at the request of many constituents, I have gone the extra step of asking the State of Hawaii to verify the facts contained in his birth certificate. Hawaii is bound by their own statutes to provide such verification to other state officials in their official duties and, to Brian’s point, I do not believe they can avoid their duty to me under a criminal investigation loophole because I am not investigating them.

The fact that Obama certified his citizenship on the 2008 PPE form is irrelevant to me because Arizona does not grant its electoral votes in the PPE. I believe there is significance in changing our nomination form for the actual election to include the certification.

With all due respect, the MCSO investigation has not proven anything other than raised probable cause that the birth certificate posted on the Whitehouse website “may be” a forgery. The next lawful step would be for the Sheriff’s office to turn their findings over to the County Attorney for prosecution. Evidence would be brought on both sides and a judge should issue a decision. Whether or not that happens, if Hawaii can’t or won’t provide verification of the President’s birth certificate, I will not put his name on the ballot.

I can tell from the tone and language of your letters that the only acceptable outcome for you is that his name not be on the ballot, period. That may be what happens, but under my watch, it won’t happen based on opinions, petitions, probability or pledges to support or oppose me in the 2014 Governor’s race. My oath of office is to uphold the Constitution and laws of our State and country, and I’m going to do that by following the law. I look forward to continuing to work this issue under those parameters. Otherwise, I will respectfully agree to disagree.

Secretary of State

  • Doktor StrangeZoom

    Oh, come on, now–isn't the REAL comedy gold the Hawaii AG's throwing the whole question back at Bennett? For instance:

    (1) What list are you updating?
    (2) Is it your normal procedure to update all entries on your list by requiring birth data verification?
    (3) Are you requiring birth data verification of all entries on your list, rather than just targeting one name on your list? (please provide evidence that you are doing so)

    and even gooder:

    I asked you for legal authority that establishes your right to obtain verification, and your email of May 17, 2012 provides me with references to Arizona Revised Statutes 16-212, 16-301, 16-502, 16-507, and unnamed others. These statutes seem to deal with election of presidential electors, nomination of candidates for printing on official ballot of general or special election, form and contents of ballot, and presentation of presidential candidates on ballot, but none, as far as I can tell, establish the authority of the Secretary of State to maintain and update official lists of persons in the ordinary course of his activities.

    So, how about it, Mr. Bennett? What makes you the guy who should get this information, huh?

    Jill T. Nagamine, AG of Hawaii, I think I love you!

    • BerkeleyBear

      That's assistant AG, and get in line.

      • Doktor StrangeZoom

        I stand a) corrected, b) in line, and c) by my man.

    • I love how Hawaii sends that email to him, at the same time that he's telling the Birthers in Arizona that, yes, he is singling out Obama, and no, this isn't part of the ordinary course of his activities. Right here:

      Because of the importance and profile of the President’s case, and at the request of many constituents, I have gone the extra step of asking the State of Hawaii to verify the facts contained in his birth certificate.

      Predictably, right after he gets that email from Hawaii, he storms off.

    • DashBarb Buddha

      I like how the went from all Hi Jill, Hugs Ken to Ms.Nagamine and Mr. Bennet. The next greetings might well be Fuckface and Bitch.

      Stay strong, HI.

      • sewollef

        Read the whole thing on TPM…. one of the funniest reads this month. The middle finger from Hawaii is long as it is proud. And speaking with one voice:

        Fuck you Arizona and the ass you rode in on!!

    • Negropolis

      Inter-AG warfare!

      Short Hawaiian AG Office: Ummm…who the fuck are you, again, and why should we care?

  • Texan_Bulldog

    Actually the HI Deputy Attorney General Jill Nagamine's emails back to Bennett were much funnier. She basically tells him that unless he can prove he's qualified to get this info, he can go pound sound. She also demands proof that ALL the candidates were being required to show their birth certificates. Me thinks HI has had enough of this bullshit.

    • Doktor StrangeZoom

      I like the way you think.

      • Texan_Bulldog

        Back at you!

        And I meant pound "sand" not "sound"– was in a hurry!

        • anniegetyerfun

          I read it as "pound south" and it made perfect sense at the time.

    • I have to admit, she's still showing way more class than I would in her shoes. In particular, I would have demanded to know the basis by which Ken Bennett was claiming authority as Arizona's Secretary of State, when I haven't personally seen proof that he's even a US citizen.

      • Chichikovovich

        Yes, that would be tempting indeed. First I'd ask for the birth certificate, and then when he faxed me a copy, I'd say "an the official birth certificate", and then when that is sent overnight mail, "The print on this looks a bit off", I want to see your long form certificate. Then…..

  • shondi999

    From Phoenix New Times (2006):

    That's right. If you haven't heard, Bennett's 18-year-old son, Clifton Bennett, and his pal Kyle Wheeler, 19, recently admitted to having forced broomsticks and flashlights into the rectums of 18 young boys during a youth camp "hazing ritual" last summer. The butt-probers defended themselves by pointing out that they tried to force the phony phalluses up the boys' bungholes through their clothing, but the teens could have saved their breath.

    When your daddy's the state Senate president, you're almost certainly guaranteed a sweetheart deal.

    • Fukui-sanRadioBarb

      This feels like blogwhoring to me, despite the fancy-looking site.


    • Negropolis

      Sounds like a Mitt Romney prank.

  • WhatTheHeck

    Ken Bennett,
    Arizona Dept of Ret… Retired idiots.

  • How about the Feds cutting all checks to folks residing in Arizona. Infrastructure checks, SSI, retirement, Vet benefits, all. The reason is, of course, reason. This cluck, the Governor, assorted sheriffs, and so many other Arizona elected clearly demonstrate that the Grand Canyon State body politic is non compos mentis. Obviously, the Federales will have to decide who will assume guardianship, but that should be resolved in a decade or three.

    • spinozasgod

      shouldn't they be required to go down to the social security office in DC each month and show their long form birth cerificate to get their checks?

    • Sparky McGruff

      Perhaps the benefits can be reinstated as soon as they provide suitable evidence of their birth and citizenship. No,Mr. Teabagger, that form isn't sufficient. In fact, our investigation suggests that it may even be a forgery. Rinse, lather, repeat.

  • edgydrifter

    I don't know what the punctuation mark for *wink-wink* looks like, but I'll bet the last paragraph of Bennet's email to the birthers had a shit-ton of them.

  • sati_demise

    haha, Ken Bennett. that is all you have to say around these parts, 'cause Prescott is his hometown

  • __kth__

    With all due respect, Ken Bennett "may be" a goatfucking halfwit.

    • Vecchiojohn

      I'm not suggesting he is a goatfucking halfwit; I'm just asking the question.

      • Negropolis

        It'd be irresponsible not to speculate, after all, 'cause people have been asking "Is AZ SoS Ken Bennett a goatfucking halfwit?"

  • Guppy

    The Full Faith and Credit Clause doesn't apply to minority-majority states.


  • Nostrildamus

    I imagine the Emails from the HI dept. of health would make for entertaining reading as well.

  • SorosBot

    I've heard that Mitt Romney is not a natural born citizen; but a robot, who was built, not born. Because of this, I demand that AG Bennett remove him from the ballot unless Romney can provide proof that he is in fact a human, and of woman born.

      Ken Bennett is a Mormon. He'd put Romney on the ballot even if he was not the repug's nominee.

  • Callyson

    From HuffyPo's article on this crap:

    "I'm not a birther. I believe the president was born in Hawaii — or at least I hope he was," Bennett said.

    Another easy fix:

    "I'm not pandering to the birthers. I'll just say that I believe the president was born in Hawaii — or at least I hope he was (hint, hint.)"

    • Negropolis

      "I'm not a birther. I believe the president was born in Hawaii — or at least I hope he was," Bennett said.

      Shorter Bennett: "I'm not a racist, but…"

  • Callyson

    Also, auto – correct wants to change "birther" to "birth." As in, it wants to give birth to some common sense to replace the birther. Good luck with that plan, auto – correct…

    • I told my auto-correct to stop doing that, which is to say, I told my computer to stop trying to correct birthers, as it's a completely fruitless effort.

  • valgal2342

    His bio has a few clues:

        Odd, it won't link but you can google it. It's from the official
        AZ Sec. of State site.

  • Callyson

    Because of the importance and profile of the President’s case, and at the request of many constituents, I have gone the extra step of asking the State of Hawaii to verify the facts contained in his birth certificate.

    Another easy fix:

    Because of the growing possibility that the President will win re – election, and at the request of those who are paying me to carry out their whims, I have gone to the desperate measure of asking the State of Hawaii to verify the facts contained in his birth certificate, since we've got nothing else at this point.

        3,600 emails? Why that's three times more legitimate than that birther crap, right Ken?

      wow what a Gomer this dude is, who the hell parts his hair down the middle like that anyway? I do like the 'Kids Page' tho, lots o' fun fer all the birther morons (see "What Secretaries Do/ Who Is Secretary")
      "Ken Bennett is the Secretary of State. He started his job in January of 2009! He visits schools and neighborhoods to talk to you and your parents about his job. He's really friendly so if you see him, make sure to say hello." …and kick him in the nuts to see if he's human!

    If they're gonna keep this stupid shit up, they might want to rethink that whole "allowing ordinary citizens to pack heat in state buildings" thing. Just an observation, mind you, not a threat.

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      Maybe he's bad at sucking balls because he's being trying to suck the Koch instead?

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Still, it seems strange that Hawaii is ignoring the obvious fact that Obama is black, and therefore could not have been born in the United States.

  • (1) What list are you updating?

    (3) Are you requiring birth data verification of all entries on your list, rather than just targeting one name on your list? (please provide evidence that you are doing so)


    Also, I like how he gets his SOS office buddy Jim Drake to join in–was that an intimidation tactic?


    Unpossible. Lizard People from space are hatched from eggs, and do not have birth certificates. There is a date the egg was laid, and a date when the Reptiloid pecked through its shell.

    • lyssandri

      I think the fact that he's Romney's co-chair needs to be mentioned in every single post made about this whole fiasco. In fact, my dream is for some reporter to ask Romney something along the lines of:

      "Ken Bennett, the co-chair of your Arizona campaign, has been quoted recently as saying that if Hawaii does not respond to his request for validation of President Obama's birth certificate that he will not include Obama's name on the November ballot. I'd like to know if your campaign officials in other states are planning to make use of this same tactic and what message this sends to American voters about your commitment to democracy?"

    From TPM:

    "But during the interview, Bennett, a Republican and Mitt Romney’s Arizona co-chair, also said that if he doesn’t get a satisfactory answer from Hawaii, it’s 'possible' he’ll keep the president off the ballot in November."

    Didn't we go through all this hot mess in 2000? Remember Wonkette's favorite Katherine Harris – Florida's Secretary of State and Chair of the Bush for President Committee?

    If Arizona is so stuck on American law, then where the hell was it when the America wrote up its own birth certificate?

    Wonketters, you're missing the creepy background on this Bennett guy – the story goes that "when he was the Senate president in 2006 and his son got busted for shoving 'broomsticks and flashlights into the rectums of 18 boys in at least 40 incidents at a youth camp in June' and got away with it… then went off on a Mormon mission?"

    "If the State of Hawaii does not confirm that he was born in Hawaii, his name will not appear on Arizona ballots." – I'm Mitt Romney's Arizona campaign co-chair, and I approved this message.

    I love that Jill T. Nagamine, Hawaii's Deputy Attorney General asked for Bennett's papers!

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      She's clearly having a hell of a lot of fun with these jokers. I hope Bennett has to prove who HE is, with a certified birf cert. And that he then gets told, "sorry, we need the long form."

    O.K., let's stipulate that Obama was born in Hawaii, but has anyone proved that Hawaii is actually a state?

      Let's see Arizona's certificate of being a state. It was a Confederate state and declared as such by an illegal President, let's not forget.

    • Hawaii is a state. But considering how all these birthers are running around talking smack about how shitty their record-keeping is, they might decide the mainland is too stupid to deserve them and secede.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        They should just start charging, say, $500 for a certified copy. They could turn a tidy profit off of all the birther morons.

    Bulldoze this whole fucking mess they call a state into the Grand Canyon; no one has lost any.

    It gets better: "On Monday morning, two men self-identified as being from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Phoenix went to the [Honolulu] DOH office requesting a verification Obama's birth certificate, according to DOH spokeswoman Janice Okubo."

    Yep, Bennett spent AZ state funds to send TWO of his goons to Hawaii, to further advance his little personal unicorn hunt. You won't believe what they're finding!

      Sounds more like Sheriff Joe's "Cold Case Posse" than the Secretary of State's office.

  • JustPixelz

    Repubican inability to discern fact from fiction on something as rudimentary as Obama's birthplace explains everything about how they govern.

  • tahlula

    Didn't they have to verify this before they put him on the ballot the last time? I smell a dereliction of duty…

  • DahBoner

    They have birth certificates in Mexico????

    Sure. Romney's got a tortilla or something comemorating his birth down there…

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      A small corn one, or a big long-form wheat one?

  • jakegittes

    ". . .probable cause that the birth certificate posted on the Whitehouse website 'may be' a forgery"? Fuck you, Ken Bennett. That ain't probable cause. You need "probable cause" that it is a forgery, not that it "may be".

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      A black man saying that something's so, in Arizona, is probable cause for thinking that it ain't.
