LESS TERSE AND MORE DETAILED THAN THOSE PREVIOUSLY RECEIVED
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 12, 2010) — A response to The Post & Email’s Hawaii Petition Campaign was received today stating that the petitioner’s request would be forwarded to Dr. Chiyome Fukino of the Hawaii Department of Health.
The letter appears to specifically identify the question of the authenticity of Obama’s Certification of Live Birth, which it does not refer to as “vital records.” Instead, the person who signed the letter stated that “the issue as to President Obama’s certification of birth needs to be addressed to the Department of Health, Attention: Dr. Chiyome Fukino.” He stated that he would do so “for her review and response.”
The letter, written on April 6,, 2010 in response to the Hawaii Petition Campaign letters mailed on March 1, 2010, was signed in ink by Pankaj Bhanot, Division Administrator. It is copied to Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director/Department of Health, and Lillian B. Koller, Director/Department of Human Services.
It reads as follows:
April 6, 2010
Mrs. Sharon Rondeau
Dear Mrs. Rondeau:
Thank you for your letter of March 1, 2010, regarding the State of Hawaii’s release of all vital records or any government documents, which pertain to the individual known as “Barrack Hussein Obama II” (President Obama). The Director of the Department of Human Services (DHS) has referred your letter to us for a response.
The issue as to President Obama’s certification of birth needs to be addressed to the Department of Health, Attention: Dr. Chiyome Fukino. We will be forwarding a copy of this letter for her review and response.
Due to confidentiality, the Department of Human Services is not able to confirm or deny that any records exist for President Obama or his family. You will need to obtain a “consent to release” before any information can be released.
Thank you for your concern and if we can be of service to you, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (808) 586-5230.
c: Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director/Department of Health
Lillian B. Koller, Director/Department of Human Services
This is the first response which The Post & Email has received which references vital records for anyone in Obama’s family, as these were not requested nor even mentioned by The Post & Email in its petition letter to Hawaii officials and departments. It also apparently references Obama’s Certification of Live Birth (“certification of birth) but then states that it cannot confirm or deny that “any records exist” for… Obama or his family.”
