BIRTHER SUIT QUESTIONS ROMNEY ELIGIBILITY
SACRAMENTO, March 22 (UPI) — People aligned with the birthers movement sued California Secretary of State Debra Bowen, demanding she verify all presidential candidates’ eligibility.
The lawsuit filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., a California state employee, Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and five others also raised “questions concerning the eligibility” of Republican Mitt Romney to be a presidential candidate, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
Birthers believe President Obama was born in Africa and is not a U.S. citizen, so he is ineligible to be president. Obama last year released his long-form birth certificate from a Honolulu hospital that stated he was born in Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961, which birthers have theorized was forged.
The plaintiffs’ lawyer, Gary Kreep of Ramona, Calif., said Wednesday his clients wanted the issue of Romney’s eligibility raised because of his parents’ residency in Mexico.
This is a great quote! But one small thing - she never said it. Learn to fact check next time. Perpetuating a lie will make others question the truths you do tell.
Much like Southern Democrats had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 20th century to accept racial equality, Southern Republicans now need to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century to accept marriage equality.
The South was also way behind the times with gender equality. The womens suffrage movement was based primarily in the North and West, and of all the Southern states, only Texas and Tennessee ratified the 19th Amendment (giving women the right to vote) before it went into effect.
In fact, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana voters all rejected ratifying the 19th Amendment, and only subsequently did so in symbolic votes held later in the century.
Although all American women got the right to vote in 1920 once the amendment was approved by three-fourths of the states, Mississippi voters didn’t actually approve it until 1984, 64 years later.
Flowery words and thoughtful rhetoric alone won’t make it happen any more than they’ve revived this miserable economy.
