New Jersey forcing Cruz to prove eligibility

By Around the Web

(WASHINGTON TIMES) The New Jersey secretary of state has scheduled a hearing Monday to make Sen. Ted Cruz prove he is eligible to run for president under the Constitution, after a Washington-area law professor filed a challenge arguing his Canadian birth makes him ineligible.

Victor Williams, the man challenging Mr. Cruz, is also running as a write-in candidate for the Republican nomination in New Jersey, which he hopes gives him an extra boost as he tried to convince the state both that he has standing to challenge, and that Mr. Cruz should be disqualified.

Mr. Williams’ argument is that Mr. Cruz filed a false certificate of eligibility along with the signatures he filed to get on the ballot in New Jersey.
