Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle (R)

(Mar. 13, 2010) — The first batch of letters and petitions sent to Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle and her cabinet officials have been delivered as confirmed online by the United States Postal Service.

The petitions were sent to the governor as well as 13 cabinet officials including Lt. Governor Duke Aiona and Major General Robert Lee, Adjutant General of the Department of Defense. The Director of the Hawaii Health Department, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, was also a recipient.

Dr. Fukino has made three public statements regarding Obama’s “vital records” on October 31, 2008, July 28, 2009 and February 23, 2010. While Hawaii law mandates in Section 15 that “information collected and maintained for the purpose of making information available to the general public” must be provided to an individual upon request, Dr. Fukino has released only very limited information on the DOH website. She also has never explained how she arrived at the conclusion that “Barrack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen” and why, as a public figure, his vital records cannot be released.

The Post & Email’s petition campaign was launched on January 4, 2010 to seek the release of Obama’s documentation so that the nation’s citizens might know whether or not he meets the definition of “natural born Citizen” as required by Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.

On January 21, 2009, his first full day in office, Obama signed an Executive Order stating that “Upon receipt of a notice of intent to disclose Presidential records, the Attorney General (directly or through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel) and the Counsel to the President shall review as they deem appropriate the records covered by the notice and consult with each other, the Archivist, and such other executive agencies as they deem appropriate concerning whether invocation of executive privilege is justified.”

Anyone wishing to sign the petition for the next mailing can sign here.

  1. Since it seems most if not all politicians these days do not know how to read (at least it appears that way) maybe someone should offer to read them to the gov. and inform her of their meaning.
