Here’s one of the big stories we’re working on tonight for The Ed Show: Mitt Romney's campaign just announced a fundraising contest and a Las Vegas event that will both be held in collaboration with real estate magnate and Obama birther Donald Trump.

-- I want him to show his birth certificate. There’s something on this birth certificate that he doesn’t like (at 3:10):
--You have to be born in the country. There’s not birth certificate, there’s only a certificate of live birth and that’s a different thing:
--You ask about a birth certificate. How come there are not records that his mother was in a hospital (at :22):
--This guy has not revealed his birth certificate. A lot of people agree with me.// I did a tea party event, they love this issue and there are so many people that want him to provide his birth certificate (at :46):
--You have said in previous interviews that you have a team of investigators in Hawaii looking into it.

--He’s got a certificate of live birth, that’s not a birth certificate (at 1:05).
--Look, he has got a grandmother in Kenya, who said he was born in Kenya (at 2:30):
