A Colorado Springs man who claims to have records that prove Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate was forged could face criminal charges because he is alleged to have illegally accessed an online Social Security database.
Retired Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister impersonated Obama with the Selective Service and managed to get a card with President Obamas Selective Service information on it, a blogger posted on gratewire.com
Hollister told the Colorado Springs Gazette
that a private investigator gave him what is purported to be the presidents Social Security number and he then accessed the Social Security Number Verification Service to find out to whom it was issued and to access Selective Service documents.
The site allows registered users to verify names and Social Security numbers for employment purposes and warns that using it under false pretenses is a violation of federal law.
Hollister told the Gazette that according to the Social Security Administration, that number was never issued, but that's the same Social Security number that appears on Obama's Selective Service documents.
Hollister said the Social Security number on what he says is Obamas draft registration begins with the numbers 042, which would be issued to someone born in Connecticut, not Hawaii.
Hollister and others birthers claim Obama was born in either Kenya or Indonesia and that his birth certificate showing he was born in Honolulu in 1961 is a forgery. The Constitution requires that the president of the United States be a natural born citizen.
Hollister has challenged in a lawsuit that Obama is not an American citizen. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear that suit on Jan. 18.
Hollister could face charges of identity theft and fraud.
