New Hampshire 'birther' bill not aimed at Obama - The Hill's Ballot Box

New Hampshire 'birther' bill not aimed at Obama - The Hill's Ballot Box

Lawmakers in New Hampshire are set to debate a measure Wednesday that would require any candidate who wants their name on the state's presidential primary ballot to provide a birth certificate.

But backers of the proposal say it isn't aimed at President Obama.

Republican state Rep. David Bates told the New Hampshire Union Leader on Tuesday that supporters are amending the bill so that it wouldn't go into effect until 2013, having no impact on next year's presidential election.
