Latest Birther Eruption Based On A Falsehood

Posted by | May 17, 2012 18:01 | Filed under: Top Stories

Birthers are excited that a report surfaced that a promotional piece for Barack Obama’s hoped-for first book claimed he was born in Kenya. But the literary agent who provided the information says this was an error, telling Political Wire:

“You’re undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me — an agency assistant at the time. There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.”
