Yesterday, the Citizen Wells blog reported on a statement made
by Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama and reported by a Cullman,
Alabama newspaper.
““Another local resident asked Shelby if there was any truth to a
rumor that appeared during the presidential campaign concerning
Obama’s U.S. citizenship, or lack thereof.
“Well his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii,
but I haven’t seen any birth certificate,” Shelby said. “You have
to be born in America to be president.”
According to the Associated Press, state officials in Hawaii checked
health department records during the campaign and determined there
was no doubt Obama was born in Hawaii.”

The Huffington Post and Politico reported on this statement and
and immediately played the Obama Camp spin to discredit doubts
raised about Obama’s eligibility.

Ben Smith of Politico.com is now reporting that a spokesman for
Shelby has denied that he questioned Obama’s eligibility and that
the Cullman newspaper is sticking with their story.

“Cullman Times editor Derek Price emails that his reporter,
Patrick McCreless, affirmed to him that “we reported Shelby’s
comments on Obama’s birth certificate accurately and completely.

“We stand by our story,” Price wrote.”

It is clear what the position of Politico and Huffington Post
is. They are clearly pro Obama.

What is the position of Senator Richard Shelby?

Here is a letter from Senator Shelby posted on Congress Watch.

“Thank you for taking the time to contact me about President-elect
Barack Obama’s citizenship status. I always appreciate hearing from
my constituents.
Under the United States Constitution, Section 1 of Article II
contains a clause that states:
“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the
United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution,
shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any
Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to
the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident
within the United States.”
Many have contacted me regarding the numerous claims and lawsuits
circulating on the internet asserting that Obama is not a natural born
citizen and therefore ineligible to become United States President.
However, President-elect Obama has presented his birth certificate,
showing that he was born in Hawaii, and it has been verified and
confirmed by Hawaiian officials. Additionally, the Supreme Court has
declined to act on any of the cases contesting Obama’s citizenship.
On January 8, 2009, Members of Congress were given the opportunity to
contest the issue in a joint session of Congress, but no such
obj ectlon was ralsed during the meeting. By-all accounts,
President-elect Barack Obama meets those requirements. Please be
assured that I will continue to monitor the situation should further
issues arise.
Thank you again for contacting me. If I may be of any further
assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Sincerely,
~~
Richard Shelby
