Former Hawaii elections clerk Tim Adams has signed an affidavit swearing he was told by his supervisors in Hawaii that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Barack Obama Jr. in Hawaii and that neither Queens Medical Center nor Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu had any record of Obama having been born in their medical facilities.

Adams was employed at the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division from May 2008 through September 2008.
An appeals court in Chicago ruled Monday that Rahm Emanuel doesn’t meet the residency requirements to run for mayor of Chicago and ordered his name be pulled off the ballot. The three judge panel voted 2-1 against Emanuel.
In a major blow to Emanuel’s campaign, Monday’s ruling overturned a Cook County Circuit Court ruling that upheld a Chicago Board of Elections decision to let Emanuel run in the February 22nd election.
The court agreed with Emanuel’s contention that he met Chicago’s voter residency standard but added that wasn’t enough to allow his run for mayor.
“…a candidate must meet not only the Election Code’s voter residency standard, but also must have actually resided within the municipality for one year prior to the election, a qualification that the candidate unquestionably does not satisfy,” the ruling stated.
And the ruling may well keep Emanuel’s name off the ballot.
“We’re going to press with one less candidate for mayor,” said Langdon D. Neal, the chairman of the Board of Election Commissioners for the city of Chicago.
The residency questions stem from Emanuel’s time spent living in Washington while he served as President Obama’s chief of staff. He resigned and moved back to Chicago in October of 2010 and almost immediately announced his candidacy for mayor.
A privacy law that shields birth certificates has prompted Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie to abandon efforts to dispel claims that President Barack Obama was born outside Hawaii, his office says.
State Attorney General David Louie told the governor that privacy laws bar him from disclosing an individual’s birth documentation without the person’s consent.
