Scott, who said in December that he does not believe the president was born in America, questioned the validity of Obama's birth certificate to Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star on Tuesday.
"(President Obama's) birth certificate has yet to be validated," Scott said. "If they can counterfeit $100 bills, I think it's a million times easier to counterfeit a birth certificate, if you ask me. So, all it is, let's just see if it's real. Anybody can produce a document, so let's check it out."
According to the report, an Orioles employee witnessed Mellinger talking to Scott and said that the organization doesn't support his views.
