Hawaii`s governor wants to reveal Obama birth info

Democratic Gov Neil Abercrombie wants to find a way to release more information about President Barack Obama`s Hawaii birth.

Honolulu: Democratic Gov Neil Abercrombie
wants to find a way to release more information about
President Barack Obama`s Hawaii birth and dispel conspiracy
theories that he was born elsewhere.

Abercrombie was a friend of Obama`s parents and knew him
as a child, and is deeply troubled by the effort to cast doubt
on the president`s citizenship.

The newly elected governor will ask the state attorney
general`s office and health officials about how he can make
public more of Obama`s birth documentation from August 4,
1961, spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said yesterday.

"He had a friendship with Mr Obama`s parents, and so
there is a personal issue at hand," Dela Cruz said. "Is it
going to be done immediately? No, the first thing on our list
is the economy."

It`s unclear what Abercrombie could do because Hawaii`s
privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth
certificate to anyone who doesn`t have a tangible interest.
