On her Facebook page yesterday, Sarah Palin posted an endorsement of Steve Pearce, a Republican running for Congress in New Mexico’s 2nd District.
What Palin may or may not have realized, is that Pearce had just days earlier said that there were “significant questions” about President Obama’s birth certificate.Palin wrote yesterday:
[TPM SLIDESHOW: Governor Sarah Palin: A Long Goodbye]
At a campaign event on September 30, a woman asked if Pearce would “be agreeable to subpoenaing and making [Obama] show a birth certificate.”
“I just want to know what is your position on Barack Obama if he is in fact a Kenyan-born, Indonesian Muslim. What is your position on all of this?” she asked.
My position is that Barack Obama raised the most significant questions himself. He said, after he came to the U.S., that he traveled to Pakistan. Now at the point that he traveled to Pakistan it was not legal to go there with a U.S. passport. And so he, himself, raised the greatest questions. I think that those questions need to be asked.
