2. Did that statement (or any other official statement from the state government) confirm that the certificate you have on file matches the one on Obama's website?
3. Is it illegal under Hawaii state law to confirm where Obama was born, or to confirm that the certificate you have on file matches the one on Obama's website?
Dr. Fukino has said that her statement stands on its own, and she does not feel there is any need for further comment.
Hawaii State law protects the birth records of all individuals born in our state under all circumstances. State law prohibits the Department of Health from disclosing any information about a Hawaii vital record unless the requestor has a direct and tangible interest in the record. This includes verification of vital records and all the information contained in a record. Direct and tangible interest is determined by HRS §338-18(b). http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/hrscurrent/Vol06_Ch0321-0344/HRS0338/HRS_0338-0018.htm
For information on the law that governs vital records in the State of Hawaii , please refer to HRS §338 at http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/hrscurrent/
Information on obtaining certified copies of vital records is available on the Hawaii DOH website at www.hawaii.gov/health
