‘Celebrity journalist’ Mike Evans: I never spoke to Abercrombie about Obama birth certificate

Self-described celebrity journalist Mike Evans now says he didn’t mean it when he claimed Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie told him there was no birth certificate for President Barack Obama.

On Jan. 20, Evans told Minnesota’s KQRS radio station that there is “absolutely no proof at all that he was born in Hawaii.”

“Yesterday, talking to Neil’s office, Neil says that he searched everywhere using his powers as governor … there is no Barack Obama birth certificate in Hawaii,” Evans said then.

That story has changed, as Evans told Fox News that he “never talked to him [Abercrombie].” “Only this I can you tell you is 100 percent fact: that Neil never told me there was no birth certificate,” Evans said.

The mishap, Evans said, was because he accidentally said he talked to Abercrombie, when, in fact, he meant to say that Honolulu’s two hospitals said they didn’t have the birth certificate.

Evans has a five-minute radio feature that is broadcast on 34 radio stations nationwide each morning, but his misstatement about Obama’s birth certificate, he said, only ran on KQRS in Minnesota.

“I was on 34 radio stations that morning. That was the only station where I said, instead of saying, ‘The hospital said there’s no birth certificate,’ I misspoke and said Neil said that,” Evans said. “I misspoke and I apologize for that. I apologize to Neil.”

    It just goes to show how silly the birthers are, they seize on every rumor or smidgeon that supports their point of view, and deny or pick apart every bit of evidence to the contrary. Certainly they are not deep-thinkers. The fact is that Hawaii is proposing changing their privacy laws so that they can release the certificate to anyone for $100, that would fix their budget problems. They are being inundated by continuous requests from birthers. Let them put their money where their mouth is.

    I’m not a birther, but I sure would like for Interpol to come up with copies of the passport(s?) he traveled with when going to several SE Asian countries as well as to Africa. I’d also like to see whether or not he registed in college under a different ID. Just thinking…

    the answer is that he was born in Hawaii, but there is something on the original certificate that is embarassing, like: using the name Barry, or mother listed as not married, or father not listed.

    I bet he’s lying now because Obama goons got to him and he’s afraid of losing his job or worse, Obama could clear his BC matter easy just give consent to the governor to release his bc if he really has one, let everyone see it.

    Why spend Millins in lawyer fees to deny access to your BC ? it makes no sense unless he has something to hide. show us and get it over with..
