No, this is not a news item from 2008.
People who believe President Barack Obama was born in Africa have filed a lawsuit demanding California’s secretary of state verify the eligibility of presidential candidates before allowing them on the November ballot.
The suit was filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and others. Robinson was among those who claimed in 2009 Obama was ineligible to be president.
Where were these people when Barack Obama publicly released his birth certificate showing that he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, one of the fifty states that make up this country? The type of denial that reasons “I see the evidence but I believe otherwise in spite of it,” verges on mental illness and should not be accommodated by the state of California or any other governing body that has more important issues to take care of (and there are certainly many of those). When is the last time resources have been devoted to investigating things that have already been proven? The answer is never.
It also reeks of shadiness that the lawsuit addresses the very vague “presidential candidates” whose eligibilities need verification instead of cutting straight to the point: we need to continue agitating Barack Obama’s seat in office until he is gone. This is a very sad state of affairs.
