ARIZONA: Governor vetoes “birther” bill and with it circumcision paperwork as proof of citizenship

In a follow up to an earlier story, it appears circumcision certificates will not determine US citizenship in Arizona after all. Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the bill. She wrote, “I never imagined being presented with a bill that could require candidates for President of the greatest and most powerful nation on Earth to submit their ‘early baptismal or circumcision certificates’ among other records to the Arizona secretary of state.” The bill would have applied to anyone who needed to show proof of citizenship, not just presidential candidates.
