3rd state facing challenge over Obama candidacy

A formal challenge to Barack Obama’s candidacy in the 2012 presidential election has been filed now in a third state, where a filing submitted by a citizen, Albert Hendershot, alleges that the Democratic Party “intends to act negligently or fraudulently in a manner that will cause irreparable harm to the citizens of Alabama.”
Earlier challenges to Obama’s candidacy were filed in New Hampshire as well as Georgia. State officials in New Hampshire, noting that the application was filled out and the $1,000 fee had been paid, rejected the complaint, which now is being appealed.
The complaints note that state officials are constitutionally obligated to prevent fraudulent ballots in their jurisdictions, along with concerns that the Democrats, as in 2008, are proposing a candidate that is linked to fraud through his presentation of a contested birth certificate as well as his use of a suspect Social Security number.

This complaint does not request or require [officials] find that President Obama is not qualified to hold the office of president of the United States. Instead, this complaint simply asserts that sufficient evidence exists to make any reasonable person doubt, in light of the evidence, that Barack Obama is a ‘natural-born citizen,” said the document, which was posted online by the BirtherReport.com.
The website, which actively pursues information about Obama’s background, reports that among the various documents for Obama that remain concealed include his passport records, kindergarten records, Punahou School records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, University of Chicago scholarly articles, Illinois State Bar Association records, Illinois State Senate records/schedules, medical records, Obama/Dunham marriage license, Obama/Dunham divorce documents, Soetoro/Dunham marriage license and adoption records.
The Alabama complaint, directed to Secretary of State Beth Chapman, seeks a “hearing on the validity of evidence of electoral fraud in the 2008 presidential election and the potential for the same occurrence int eh 2012 presidential election in and for the state of Alabama.”
The goals include an injunction from the state prohibiting the Democratic Party from making representations about Obama “absent a showing of evidence to your office sufficient to prove that said representation is not negligent and that Barack H. Obama is eligible to be placed on the ballot.”
The document explains the state office as “sole responsibility in placing Barack H. Obama for president” on the state ballot.
“This notice and my challenge and request he be removed from our ballot as he does not meet the minimum qualifications as set forth in Article II Section I Clause V concerning the natural born citizen status,” the complaint explalins.
Just one day earlier, WND reported that members of the Congressional Research Service have launched a campaign to encourage people to belief that Obama is qualified, even though some critics contend he wasn’t born in Hawaii (and his birth document is forged) so he would not meet the constitutional requirement that a president be a “natural born citizen,” which is a requirement beyond being a “citizen” or a “native-born” citizen.
The CRS argued that anyone “native-born,” including the offspring of who illegal immigrants, is the same as “natural born citizen.”
Others say even if Obama was born in Hawaii, by demanding “natural born citizen” the Founders excluded from eligibility anyone born a dual citizen. Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr., was a citizen of Kenya and subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at his birth.
WND has reported that there were multiple attempts in Congress during the years that Obama was building a power base and staging his bid for the White House to remove from the Constitution that requirement. A law firm worker where a partner worked on Obama’s finance committee also lobbied to have the change made.
The Alabama document explains the jurisdiction for vetting candidates “valls squarely on the shoulders of your office as head of the voter fraud unit and it is your sworn duty as a leader of honor and public servant to protect and defend the Constitution.”
The complaint says the fraud allegations come not only from allegations regarding Obama’s birth documentation, but also from his use of a “bogus” Social Security number of Connecticut.
“The SSN discrepancy is worthy of investigation. His naturalization, if it ever occurred, is another issue since he was officially adopted by Indoensian Lolo Soetoro. These additional two issues alone would constitute the need for further investigation.”
The complaints notes the significance of the approval of the state secretary of state.
“Leading Americans, including some judges, have incorrectly concluded that the voters are the final arbviters of whether an indvidiiual is qualified to hold office. This is simply not correct. America is a constitutional Repbulican, not a democracy without a constitution. The Consttiution is an anti-majoritarian document; meaning that it protects idnividiuals from invasions and usurpations of the majority.”
WND previously has reported that historically, in both New Hampshire and California, candidates have been removed from ballots for ineligibility. And there even was a case in North Dakota where a chief officer, the governor, was removed from office after he was elected and installed, because of ineligibility.
That case involved Thomas H. Moodie, who was elected. But later it was revealed that he had not lived in the state the needed five years before running for office. “Because of that ineligibility, he was removed from office and replaced by the lieutenant governor,” state records reveal.
