Willie Horton Ad Creator: Birther Story ‘Not Dead’

Conservative political strategist Floyd Brown, who gained a sort of immortality during the 1988 presidential campaign for an ad attacking Democratic candidate Mike Dukakis over the furloughing of a violent prisoner, has a new article up at WorldNetDaily attacking CNN for shutting down Lou Dobbs’ coverage of “birthers.” CNN president Jon Klein had credited CNN’s political researchers with debunking the story. Brown and his wife/co-author Mary dissent:

If “the political researchers” at CNN had made more extensive inquiries than just repeating a public statement made on June 7, 2009, by the Department of Health spokesman to a local newspaper, they would have discovered that up until sometime between June 10 and June 18, 2009, the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands required applicants for special privileges to present copies of their original birth certificates. The DHHL regarded the shorter “Certification of Live Birth” as insufficient. Therefore the DHHL instructed all applicants to this program in the accepted procedure for obtaining copies of their original birth certificate from the Department of Health.

… Klein’s message to Dobbs’ staffers is deceptive or mistaken. Up until the middle of June 2009, Obama could “produce the original birth certificate.” And the Hawaiian Department of Health could produce it now if he authorized it to do so. The story is not “dead,” even though Klein has just tried to kill it. So Klein either lied to or misled Dobbs’ staffers or was lied to or misled by the Hawaiian Department of Health.

If nothing else, this demonstrates the degree to which conservative political operatives have paid attention to this conspiracy theory, even after Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign (quietly) found the rumors easily to debunk.
