In it, but not of it. TPM DC

Virginia's GOP Attorney General Dabbles In Birtherism, Games Out Possible Legal Challenges (AUDIO)


TPMDC has not been able to independently confirm the authenticity of the audio. Tribbett would not give us any further details about the date, location, or nature of the event, citing confidentiality. Cuccinelli's office has not returned our multiple requests for comment.

Cuccinelli also raises the point that someone would need proof that Obama wasn't born in the United States. How might we get proof, the man asked? "Well, that's a good question. Not one I've thought a lot about because it hasn't been part of my campaign," Cuccinelli replied. "Someone is going to have to come forward with nailed down testimony that he was born in place B, wherever that is. You know, the speculation is Kenya. And that doesn't seem beyond the realm of possibility."

Late Update: Cuccinelli has released a statement, saying that he "absolutely" believes President Obama was born in the United States, does not believe the claims that Obama was not born in the United States, and that he was giving a "hypothetical" answer to a hypothetical question.
