Is Arizona GOP Chairman Tom Morrissey a "Birther"?
Arizona Republican Party chairman Tom Morrissey insists he is not a "birther."
However, Morrissey says, "In my opinion, what I have seen from the president, produced as a birth certificate, does not convince me that it is a real document."

The Associated Press brought up the situation in its report on the meeting in which Arizona's 11 electors cast their votes for Mitt Romney. Apparently, three of those electors -- Morrissey being one of them -- went "birther."

According to that report, Morrissey and two others "spoke up during the ceremony to voice doubts about Obama's eligibility as a native-born U.S. citizen."
Morrissey was later given the opportunity to explain himself on 550 KFYI and Morrissey -- speaking as a "concerned American" -- said he didn't think the president had produced a "true document," and the president's birth certificate "doesn't ring with [him]."
Now, does it sound like the head of the Arizona Republican Party is a "birther"?
