Obama’s Half-Sister: Put Birth Challenges ‘To Bed’

A new party is being heard from in the controversy about whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States. That’s his half-sister Maya Soetoro-Ng, Politico reports.

Those charging that Obama was born overseas, making him unqualified for the presidency, should give it a rest, she told CNN in an interview slated to air Tuesday night.

“I think that it is time for people to put that to bed, put it to rest completely,” Soetoro-Ng said. “I think it’s a shame, and I think that my brother should definitely be president for a second term. And that’s really all I have to say about it.”

She and the president share their mother in common, but have different fathers. Soetoro-Ng is on a press tour to promote her children’s book, “Ladder to the Moon.”
