HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WJZ) — Despite overwhelming evidence that President Obama was born in the U.S., some people refuse to believe it.

Adam May reports Terry Lakin is a leader among this fringe group and a controversial Maryland Army doctor who was just released from prison.

He was released Friday after serving five months of a six-month sentence for refusing to go to Afghanistan.

“So happy to be with my family,” said Lakin.

Last year, the Army doctor from Hagerstown was found guilty of disobeying an order to serve in Afghanistan.

“I will disobey my orders because I believe all service men and woman and American people deserve the truth about President Obama’s constitutional eligibility to the presidency and Commander-in-Chief,” said Lakin.

Lakin was greeted by dozens of supporters who still question President Obama’s citizenship.

“A dual citizen can’t be president. Mommy and Daddy have to be born here,” said one woman.

In April, Obama tried squashing conspiracy theories by releasing a copy of his original birth certificate. He showed the birth certificate stating he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Aug. 4, 1961.

“We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers,” said Obama.

A reporter with Patch.com says the birth certificate release hasn’t changed Lakin’s views or the views of his followers.

“It’s the biggest phony I’ve ever seen in my life,” said one woman.

There is only one thing that would make the birthers happy.

“The removal of Obama,” said the woman.
