Republican Presidential Candidate and conservative columnist Andy Martin says that his two years of fighting in Hawai’i for the state to release Barack Obama’s original birth records are bearing fruit. “The battle is not over,” Martin says, “But the proposed new law permitting release is a positive first step.”

ANNOUNCEMENT OF FRIDAY NEWS CONFERENCE IN PALM BEACH
Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin claims A “huge victory” as Hawai’i legislators move to adopt a law allowing the release of Obama’s original birth certificate
Martin has been fighting for over two years to secure the release of Obama’s original, typewritten long-form 1961 birth certificate
“This is good,” Martin states, “This is progress”
Martin says his relentless efforts to secure the release of Obama’s birth records are being vindicated
(CHICAGO)(January 28, 2011) Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin will hold a Palm Beach news conference Friday, January 28th in Palm Beach, Fl to claim a “huge victory” in the his efforts to secure the release of president Barack Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate. Five Hawai’i legislators have filed a bill to allow the release of birth records of “Persons of prominence,” including Obama.
“For over two years I have been litigating and lobbying against an absurd interpretation of Hawai’i law that says the president of the United States should be treated the same way an ordinary citizen is treated by privacy restrictions in state law. I support citizen privacy laws, but they cannot reasonably be applied to high public officials.
“Five Hawai’i legislators have now filed H. B. 1116 which would allow the release of president Obama’s original birth certificate. I will advise the legislature of my availability to return to Honolulu to testify in support of the law, and urge a clarification in the proposed law that mandates the release of all birth records, and not just a ‘Certificate of Live Birth,’ the form that has generated so much controversy in the past.
“The records of a president of the United States, and even a U. S. Representative or U. S. Senator, are historical archives. They are part of the bricks-and-mortar of our democracy. We need to know who these people are. Their family histories are ‘our’ family histories. Their records are in no way comparable to the birth records of an ordinary citizen.
“I don’t want to suggest over-optimism, however. The original, long-form Obama certificate may generate as many questions as it answers. But it will be a step in the process of discovering who the 44th president of the United states really is. The legislators who are sponsoring this bill should be commended. I hope the law will be adopted promptly by unanimous consent and that the new statute will be signed into law by Governor Abercrombie.
“This is a first step, but it is a very positive step forward. I feel vindicated that my efforts to secure the release of Obama’s historical records are finally being recognized as a legitimate pursuit. It comes as a great and unexpected tonic to my presidential campaign,” Martin said in announcing his Friday news conference. “My ‘Birther’-based campaign for the presidency has borne fruit.
“But, finally, let me issue another caution. In the past couple of weeks there has been a rampant controversy over whether the actual long-form certificate actually exists. If the long-form is not produced, and we are told by Hawai’i officials there is now ‘no record’ of Obama’s 1961 birth as some have recently opined, after 2008 claims to the contrary that the document is in the actual possession of state officials, then we will have a constitutional crisis on our hands.”
