Yes, Santa Claus, there IS a Virginia

Virginia Simahara.

Born August 4, 1961.  Same day that Presbo was born.

Died August 5, 1961. The following day.

In Hawaii.

No problemo.  Except if you are her family and want a copy of her birth certificate.  Which the family is legally entitled to request and obtain.  Seems that rahter than just fill their request for the birth certificate, proceedings were held in the Hawaii Circuit Court of the First Circuit.  Hawaii Deputy Attorney General Jill Nagamine appeared before Judge Rhonda Nishimura on March 8, 2012, to argue that Duncan Sunahara, Virginia’s brother, was not entitled under Hawaii statutes to observe or obtain a copy of his sister’s original 1961 long-form birth certificate.  Nagamine argued that Duncan Sunahara’s request did not derive from a “true interest to examine or obtain a copy of his sister’s original birth” records and that he was just interested in trying to determine if it had been used instead to supply the basis for the form that Presbo is using.  Nagamine argued that it was too burdensome to get the volume of bound records out of the temperature controlled vault, move it to the special Xerox machine that they have that is designed specifically for making copies of the bound records and then push the “start” button.  Especially since that particular binding also seems to contain Presbo’s record and has been moved to a special even more secure location with even more limited access.  They were willing to provide the family with a computer generated short form that had a record number that was widely out of sequence from the birth certificate numbers of other people who had been born on that day, raising questions about whether it was a forgery.

Judge Nishimura denied Duncan Sunahara’s request, agreeing with Nagamine that actually providing the family with the record that they  are legally entitled too was burdensome and placed the integrity of all the records in that binding at risk.  One has to wonder why records are even being kept if the people who are the only ones legally entitled to copies of the records are prevented by a judge from that access. and why the Hawaii Deputy Attorney would even care.  And if they were so interested in the integrity of Presbo’s record, that perhaps it might be move separately to this more secure location so that other people might access records that they are legally entitled to.   One also might wonder, of one was inclined to conspiracies,  if Virginia’s record might have been given to Presbo.

And lastly, one of Sherrif Arpaio’s investigators went to the Hawaii Department of Health’s main office in Honolulu much earlier before all the birther controversy had started.  Presbo’s name was not in the computerized registration list in the ring binder.   When the investigator returned 2 weeks later to look over the same list again, Presbo’s name was magically there.

These investigators are so careless, missing the name when they started looking for it.

You have to want to believe.

    Not really fair to Judge Nishimura. I mean, how would you like to face a choice, where you might be credited for the rest of recorded history, with having brought about the downfall of Barrack Obama. Have to move, change name, worry about the safety of yourself and your family for the rest of your life? Hard to imagine how anyone could face the risks of being impartial under that kind of pressure an threat. Wouldn’t take but a little midnight phone call to suggest that she be careful, otherwise, everyone in her family might have a fatal accident sometime in the next year or two.
