Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL), who sparked controversy when he introduced a bill three months ago to require presidential candidates to submit their birth certificates, has now been picking up some more co-sponsors, Dave Weigel reports.
Posey now has a total of five co-sponsors in the House: John Campbell (R-CA), John Carter (R-TX), John Culberson (R-TX), Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Randy Neugebauer (R-TX).
Posey also gave an interview with World Net Daily -- one of the foremost Birther conspiracy theory sites out there -- to explain how many of his colleagues both support him on this and don't want to have anything to do with it: "The people that come up and slap me on the back and say, "Good luck to you!' I say, 'Hey, there's room for you on here!' And of course, they start doing the moonwalk, you know? 'Oh no, no, no, congressman!'"
