The Arizona Secretary of State has gone full-tilt, industrial-strength birther.
Here's a letter he sent to the State of Hawaii, courtesy of TPM:

Arizona Secretary of State
TPM also has details of conversations between the Arizona SecState and the Hawaii Deputy Attorney General who told him to "GFY!!!"
Deputy Attorney General Jill Nagamine’s response? “We need more information to substantiate that you are eligible to receive verification.”TPM has a chain of conversations between Arizona and Hawaii officials that's really worth reading.
In an interview with the Associated Press late Friday, a spokesman for the Hawaii attorney general said Bennett still has yet to show that he legitimately needs a verification of Hawaii’s birth certificate despite numerous emails back and forth.
Meanwhile, we -- that's WE, as in ALL OF US -- need to contact the Arizona Secretary of State and demand that he investigate Willard Romney's birth certificate with the same vigor that he is looking into Obama's.
