Bennett to testify before Congress on voting rights

Bennett said Wednesday that Hawaii's verification of President Barack Obama's birth records meets necessary requirements and that the president will appear on Arizona's ballot in the fall. Skeptics had pushed for verification and eventually Bennett announced he would seek further verification, even saying he was prepared to leave Obama's name off the state's ballot in November.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett has accepted an invitation to testify before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday in Washington D.C.

The hearing is titled “The State of the Right to Vote After the 2012 Election.”

Bennett will join former Governor of Florida Charlie Crist, Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz, South Carolina State Representative Gilda Cobb-Hunter and Nina Perales of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

Bennett says he’s looking forward to offering insights on the election cycle and “shed some light on Arizona’s system of elections.”
