Your very own Birth Certificate is not valid any more as ID
It's simply amazing that somehow a birth certificate is no longer considered a valid form of identification. That just boggles the mind.

Anyone can wander into a registrars office & ask for a copy of anyone else's birth certificate (unless the subject is President-elect, obviously). Same with marriage certificates ; they're public documents. And that's why they can't be relied upon as a sole means of identification.
The Banks policy helps prevent fraud/identity theft.
Inconvenient, aye. But necessary.

Maybe Obama gave the DNC his paypal debit card and an old gas bill to show that he was eligible.
