Norcal GOP Candidate Claims Obama was Raised as a Muslim

GRASS VALLEY, Calif. (AP) – A Republican Congressional candidate says he believes President Obama was a Muslim before he became a Christian. The Chico Enterprise-Record reported Thursday that former state Sen. Sam Aanestad made the comments during an interview with Chico radio station KZFR last week. The Grass Valley politician said Obama may be a Christian now, but his father was a Muslim and he was raised in a Muslim culture. Aanestad repeated the claims about the president’s religion at a press conference Monday. Obama has written that by the time he was born, his father had become an atheist. His father divorced his mother when he was 2, and he rarely saw his father when he was growing up child.
