(MORRISTOWN PATCH) If you think the controversy over President Obama’s birth certificate is old news, think again.

“The mainstream media has not given this fair treatment,” said political commentator, author and Denville resident Jerome Corsi, who spoke to a supportive, standing-room-only crowd Tuesday evening at the Morristown Masonic Lodge. “But this is not going away. … We really don’t know who our president is.”

Corsi, who holds a doctorate degree in political science from Harvard University, has written several books that many critics dismiss as conspiracy theory riddled with inaccuracies. His influence among conservatives and Tea Party faithful, though, is strong enough that two of his books have landed on the New York Times’ best-seller List.
