The state of Arizona has moved onto contentious political territory once again with the legislative passage of a bill requiring President Obama and other presidential candidates to prove their U.S. citizenship before their names can appear on the state's ballot.
But Mr. Seel said the measure wasn't intended as a swipe against the president and instead was meant to maintain the integrity of elections.
Republican state Rep. Carl Seel of Phoenix, the bill's author, said the president's birth record wouldn't satisfy the requirements of his proposal and that Mr. Obama would have to provide other records, such as baptismal certificates and hospital records.
