A Florida lawmaker has been perpetuating the rumor that President Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States. Rep. Bill Posey introduced a bill to require presidential candidates to produce copies of their birth certificates and other documentation to prove natural-born citizenship. Stephen Colbert is now calling for a DNA test of the Congressmen after perpetuating the rumor that he may be part alligator.

This video is from Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, broadcast Mar. 19, 2009.
