    The only person who died was the stupid Democrat who signed off on
    Obama's phony birth certificate.

    The Hawaiian health official who verified the authenticity of
    President Obama's birth certificate died in a small plane crash.

    The plane, carrying a pilot and eight passengers, went down
    Wednesday in the water a half mile off the Hawaiian island of
    Molokai, the Maui Fire Department said. The lone fatality was
    Loretta Fuddy, who has served as state health director since January
    2011. Tom Matsuda, the interim executive director of Hawaii's health
    insurance exchange, confirmed Fuddy's death.

    Fuddy, 65, made national news in April 2011 when she verified the
    authenticity of certified copies of President Obama's birth
    certificate. Obama had requested the release to curb claims by so-
    called "birthers" that he was born in Kenya and not eligible to be

    Makani Kai Air President Richard Schuman told Honolulu-based KITV
    that he spoke with the pilot of the single-engine turboprop Cessna
    Grand Caravan after the crash.

    "What he reported is after takeoff ... there was catastrophic engine
    failure," Schuman said. "He did the best he can to bring the
    aircraft down safely and he got everybody out of the aircraft."

    Schuman said the cause of the engine failure had not yet been
    determined. The National Transportation Safety Board was
    investigating the crash; NTSB spokesman Eric Weiss said that based
    on the location of the crash it was unlikely the plane will be

    "Our hearts are broken," Gov. Neil Abercrombie said in a statement.
    "Loretta was deeply loved and respected. She was selfless, utterly
    dedicated and committed to her colleagues in the Department of
    Health and to the people of Hawaii. Her knowledge was vast; her
    counsel and advice always given from her heart as much as from her
    storehouse of experience."

    Matsuda, who worked with Fuddy to set up the state's Obamacare
    website, Hawaii Health Connector, called her death "a terrible loss"
    for the state.

    "I worked closely with Director Fuddy on the Affordable Care Act and
    came to know and respect her as a passionate advocate for public
    health and a warm, caring human being," Matsuda said.

    The plane went down about a half-mile northwest of Kalaupapa
    peninsula, which was home to a leper colony until 1969. A handful of
    patients still live there. The state health director by law remains
    mayor of part of the peninsula, and Fuddy was visiting the peninsula
    in that capacity, state Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo

    Okubo said the department's deputy director, Keith Yamamoto, also
    had been booked on the flight.

    Coast Guard Petty Officer Melissa McKenzie said a Coast Guard
    helicopter got three passengers out of the water while Maui fire
    crews picked up five people. One person swam ashore.
