Arizona Governor Vetoes "Birther Bill"

PHOENIX (AP)- Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has vetoed the state's so-called "birther bill."

The bill would have required a presidential candidate to provide a birth certificate or a handful of other documents before their names could be place on a state's ballot.

President Barack Obama has been hounded by allegations that he was not born in the U-S.
The president has insisted he was born in Hawaii, and allegations against him have been repeatedly discredited.

The Constitution stipulates that only "natural born" citizens are eligible to be president.
Brewer says the bill goes "too far."

At least a dozen other states are considering similar legislation this year.
Birther bills have also failed in Connecticut, Maine and Montana.
