Constituent to Claire McCaskill: ‘Where’s Your Birth Certificate?’
Kathleen O’Dell reports on a town hall meeting held by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) with some choice hecklers:
[I]t was the next question from a Rogersville man that drew more applause: “What is the procedure for recalling U.S. senators?”
Someone quickly shouted to scattered laughter, “Where’s your birth certificate?” a reference to some Americans’ doubts about President Barack Obama’s birth country.
It was tongue-in-cheek, but wow, the Obama “birther” meme has traveled very far.
