voices.washingtonpost.com — Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin gave support Thursday to a conspiracy theory promoted by fringe groups, that President Obama may not have an American birth certificate, saying, "I think the public rightfully is still making it an issue."

Palin's comments came in an interview on "The Rusty Humphries Show", a conservative radio program, while promoting her book about the 2008 presidential campaign, "Going Rogue."

"I think it's a fair question, just like I think past associations and past voting records - all of that is fair game," the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee said when asked if she thought Obama's citizenship was a fair question to examine. Those who ask such questions about the birth certificate have become known as "birthers" and are a persistent and vocal presence in GOP circles, especially within the Tea Party movement that has sprung up over the course of 2009. Palin has agreed to be the keynote speaker at the First National Tea Party Convention at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville Feb. 4-6.
