GOP Officials Working To Have President Obama’s Name Removed From The Voting Ballot
A GOP-run objections board in Kansas is working overtime to have President Obama’s name removed from the state voting ballot under more bogus claims that he is not an American citizen.
Kansas officials plan to hold a hearing Thursday afternoon to weigh whether President Barack Obama is a citizen and should appear on the state’s November ballot.
The Kansas Objections Board will be considering a challenge filed by Joe Montgomery, a Manhattan resident, who Monday objected to Obama being on the ballot. He claims the president is not an American citizen since his father was a citizen of the United Kingdom and Kenya. The all-Republican board — which consists of Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer and Attorney General Derek Schmidt — has the power to remove Obama from the ballot in his mother’s home state.
Montgomery, the communications coordinator for the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University, said in his filing that he does not believe Obama meets the criteria for citizenship because of his father’s citizenship. He cites several Supreme Court rulings in the filing, which he says validate his argument. In the filing, Montgomery said that the rulings show a “natural born citizen” is a person born of two American citizens.
Montgomery also claimed that Obama has failed to justify his citizenship and said that the birth certificate provided by the White House is “doctored.” Hawaii officials, including former Gov. Linda Lingle (R), have said Obama was born in Honolulu and his birth certificate is real.
Oh, look. Money Mitt is also winning Kansas by a landslide in the latest polls. What a coincidence.
