Hoekstra Says Feds Should Check Birth Certificates

Michigan U.S. Senate candidate Pete Hoekstra (R) said he'd like to "create a federal office in Washington that would verify that presidential candidates meet the minimum requirements to hold the office," the Detroit Free Press reports.

Said Hoekstra: "This is not brain surgery. It should be an FBI person, maybe a CIA person. If you want to run for president, you've got to go with the proper documentation and get it certified that you meet the qualifications to be the President of the United States."
