Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco told the Huffington Post he's not sure whether President Barack Obama really is a citizen, and that it's a matter the courts will have to decide.
Bucco, who represents the 25th Legislative District, was among the local Republican officials who attended a speech Tuesday by birther Jerome Corsi in Morristown.
"I haven't really dug down deep, there was some important points raised," Bucco told the Huffington Post.
He continued: "I am not in a position to say what [Corsi] put up on screen is demonstrative of evidence; that is for the court of law. This issue has not resolved itself. It won't until some higher authority is involved."
And Bucco's not the only local Republican who feels the issue is unresolved. Corsi's speech was brought about thanks to the efforts of Morris County Sheriff Ed Rochford, who attended as well.
"The easiest way to put this to rest is to have the records [such as Obama's school transcripts' unsealed," Rochford told the Huffington Post in an email. "Mr. Corsi made a very convincing argument that President Obama may not be a natural born citizen of the United States."
