(Louisville Courier-Journal) A Louisville anesthesiologist who has filed in Kentucky to run for president has asked a Frankfort court to bar President Barack Obama from the November ballot.
Dr. Todd House filed the lawsuit Aug. 10 claiming that Obama is not a "natural born" citizen.
Such claims have been put forward by Obama opponents — often called "birthers" — since he first ran for president in 2008. They claim Obama was born in the African nation of Kenya.

State officials in Hawaii have said repeatedly that Obama was born in that state.
But some Obama opponents, including House, claim the president's Hawaiian birth certificate is falsified.
