This was how he was elected in 04. Dirty tricks against the strongest Republican in the race. And it was a few months before his big coming out party at the 04 Demo convention.

There's a few articles I found last night referring to him as Kenyan born or born overseas. This article is debunked at Snopes, for whatever that's worth.

They pretty much blew me off after an e-mail exchange so I wouldn't think they're the arbiters of all that is true all the time.
