Arizona Elections Official Goes Birther, Threatens to Keep Obama off Ballot

(Update: Bennett has now backed off his threat to keep President Obama off the ballot, and apologized!)

Fighting birtherism is like a game of whack-a-mole.  No matter how much this tinfoil-hat nonsense is disproved, it keeps rising again and again. 

This time, it is coming from the Arizona Secretary of State -- the man in charge of running Arizona's elections:

The man in charge of running Arizona’s elections has gone to the birthers. Secretary of State Ken Bennett now says he’s not convinced Barack Obama was really born in the United States and so he is threatening to keep the president off the ballot in November. Bennett said he was following the lead of the state’s eccentric Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a fellow Republican who ordered an investigation into the president’s birth certificate last year and concluded the document released by the White House is a forgery. Bennett said he is now trying to get verification from state officials in Hawaii that the certificate is authentic. (source)

This makes Ken Bennett an idiot.  A class A, raging, "take it to an 11" idiot.   But since he is the man in charge of running elections in a key swing state, it makes him an idiot with power. 

Send Ken Bennett a message:  tell him to immediately rescind his threat, cut the birther nonsense, and apologize for this absurd effort.

So much stupidity, so little time.
