Republicans who cast Arizona's official electoral votes for Mitt Romney descended into the birther conspiracy again today

The state Republican Party chairman and two other Electoral College members spoke up during the ceremony to voice doubts about Obama's eligibility as a native-born U.S. citizen.

"I'm disappointed that the other candidate, Barack Obama, has not been properly vetted as a legitimate candidate for president," said Don Ascoli, a party leader from Gila County.

"I hope our Congress will formally investigate the issue that has been brought to our attention and even investigated by our own sheriff, Joe Arpaio," he said.

Hawaii officials have certified that President Obama was born in that state.

State Republican party chairman Tom Morrissey also questioned the president's birth certificate.
