HDOH Indirectly Confirms Neither HDP nor DNC Received Letter of Verification
Poster “Citizen Concerned” has posted in the comments this exchange he/she had, wherein the HDOH confirmed they have no records of financial transactions with the Hawaii Democratic Party or the Democratic National Committee. Those financial records are required to be retained for at least 3 years (6 if not already audited). Since a letter of verification requires a financial transaction, this exchange effectively rules out the possibility that the HDP or DNC received a letter of verification for the facts of Obama’s birth between Feb 4, 2007 and Feb 4, 2010.
Obama declared his candidacy on Feb 10th, so at no time since Obama declared his candidacy did the HDP or DNC receive a letter of verification regarding the facts of Obama’s birth on which they could have based their certificate of nomination swearing his Constitutional eligibility in Hawaii or the fact that he was the “DULY CHOSEN” candidate for the DNC for other state’s certificates (which requires the candidate to be Constitutionally eligible as per the DNC Rules , p 14, K.1 and 2. Thanks to blogger jbjd for that link!)
So neither of the two avenues for the HDP or DNC to receive legal confirmation of Obama’s birth facts from the HDOH were used – a UIPA request for a non-certified abbreviated birth certificate, or a letter of verification.
Special thanks to “Citizen Concerned” for an outstanding piece of investigative work, and for sharing it with the rest of us.

State law prohibits the DOH from disclosing any vital statistics records or data incidental to those records unless the requestor has a direct and tangible interest in the record. We are therefore unable to provide any documents that are responsive to your request for information relating to persons who ordered copies of vital records. In terms of records of payments from the DPH and DNC, there are no records responsive to your request.
