The Hawaii follies were cited by Texas GOP state Rep. Leo Berman, who introduced a bill in the Texas legislature this year requiring presidential candidates to show proof of citizenship.

“I read different things that say he was born in Hawaii, and then I read the governor can’t find anything that says he was born in Hawaii,” he told POLITICO in February.

As far back as 2008, even before Obama was elected, Hawaii was raising as many questions as it was answering when it came to the facts surrounding his birth.
