His critics and his foes have spent a good deal of time raising doubt and spreading rumors that he’s not.
Today, Steve Marquis of Fall City
filed a lawsuit in King County Superior Court directing Secretary of State Sam Reed to get the proof – or remove Obama’s name from ballots.
Here is his press release.
He argues in a 30-page document:
“To avert likely civil unrest and a constitutional crisis…this complaint seeks to resolve such complaints prior to the election. It was incumbent on the candidates to present such documentation, but to date Mr. Obama has failed to do so.
Obama sought to put down this pesty rumor when he posted a picture of his birth certificate online here.
The respected FactCheck.org run by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania examined the document and concluded here that there’s no doubt he was born in Hawaii in 1961.
Reed forwarded the matter to the Attorney General’s Office. Ballots are still slated to be mailed this week.
Who is Marquis?
In his words, from his Web site.
I have a passion for God, Family, Boy Scouts, Politics, Science Outdoors and Horses. My allies say they're glad I'm on their side and I've been told I enjoy debating, but what I really enjoy is coming to a unity of faith based on truth.
