Georgia Court rules against Obama in Eligibility Question

Timothy Birdnow

A judge in Georgia has ruled that Obama must prove his eligibility to run for President.

According to WND:

"The ruling came today from Judge Michael W. Malihi of the Georgia state Office of State Administrative Hearings.

In Georgia, a state law requires “every candidate for federal” office who is certified by the state executive committees of a political party or who files a notice of candidacy “shall meet the constitutional and statutory qualifications for holding the office being sought.”

State law also grants the secretary of state and any “elector who is eligible to vote for a candidate” in the state the authority to raise a challenge to a candidate’s qualifications, the judge determined."

End excerpt.

Doubtless an Obama-friendly court will overturn this ruling, but at least it is now in the record books, a first victory for those who think there should be some attempt to hold to the Constitution.
