Obama Born In Kenya? Alleged 2012 Evidence Unearthed
Andrew Breitbart's website Has Raised Questions About Whether Barack Obama Was Born In Kenya. Here is the May 17, 2012 Story
Here we go again. Just when we thought the whole Obama birth certificate controversy died down, we have some new alleged evidence that suggests that Barack Obama was born in Kenya.
Breitbart.com, the website founded by the late Andrew Breitbart, unearthed a pamphlet produced in 1991 that featured a bio of a young Barack Obama.
Here is the Breitbart Obama Born in Kenya story
The pamphlet reads:
"Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation. He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White."
Miriam Goderich, who says she worked on the pamphlet, issued the following statement to Political Wire:
"You're undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me -- an agency assistant at the time. There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more."
No doubt, some will question Goderich's story and the pamphlet itself.
Last year, Obama produced a long-form birth certificate, which largely put an end the birther controversy.
