Bethany Haley, a spokeswoman for Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), has told WorldNetDaily that her boss is more interested in the conspiracy theories about Barack Obama’s birth than he had previously let on. Yesterday, Haley said that Franks had been convinced of Obama’s citizenship but wanted to see the proof anyway. Today, Haley says that Franks actually considered pursuing the “birther” conspiracy theories in 2008.

The real story is that he had considered a lawsuit before the 2008 election. He was ranking member on the Constitution subcommittee and it was relevant for him to take a stand on that.

That advances what Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.), the sponsor of the “birther bill” that would require 2012 presidential candidates to show their birth certificates, told Andrea Shea King back in June. Posey claimed that he’d talked to members of the House Judiciary Committee about the chances of ousting Obama on a technicality.

Haley also told WND that Franks “today joined the list of supporters of the demand for proof from future candidate.” The congressman is not yet listed as a co-sponsor of Posey’s H.R. 1503 at GovTrack or Thomas, and I’ve put in a call to check this out.
