When he was confronted by Mike Stark, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) gave perhaps the clearest statement of any Republican member of Congress on the persistent conspiracy theories about President Obama’s birth. That makes this report on a weekend town hall meeting especially confusing.

Franks said there was not enough evidence that Obama is not an American citizen. He did say there was a lot of conflicting evidence of Obama’s citizenship and that he was considering filing a lawsuit, the only congressman to do so. Franks asked why the president did not simply produce a birth certificate.

What could Franks have been referring to? WorldNetDaily has attempted to assemble “conflicting” evidence about Obama’s birth, with stories about “private detectives” who had suspicions about the address Obama’s parents lived at, stories about Websites that originally mislabeled Obama’s hospital of birth, and, famously, stories about forged “Kenyan” birth certificates. But no actual “conflicts” have arisen from those stories. So is Franks working overtime to appease a truly fringe part of his base? Mikel Weisser, a constituent who showed up at the meeting, posts at another newspaper’s forum and claims that no fewer than nine “birthers” hounded Franks during the meeting. A blogger at one of the conspiracy sites that noted this story claims that Franks has been answering constituent mail from “birthers” by dismissing them and “pretty much saying that obama has been vetted and all is in order.”
