Kansas State Board Considers Removing Obama From Ballot

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, an informal advisor to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, said on Thursday he and his fellow members of a state board were considering removing President Barack Obama from the Kansas ballot this November.

Kobach is part of the State Objections Board along with Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, all Republicans. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that on Thursday the board agreed consider whether to take Obama off the ballot because they said they lacked sufficient evidence about his birth certificate.

“I don’t think it’s a frivolous objection,” Kobach said, according to the Capital-Journal. “I do think the factual record could be supplemented.”

The board is looking at a complaint filed by Joe Montgomery, of Manhattan, Kan., who claimed the Obama is not a natural born U.S. citizen and so is ineligible to be president. The man appears to be part of a group of conspiracy theorists known as “birthers,” who deny Obama’s birth certificate is real.

Late Thursday, Kobach told TPM in an email conversation that he made his “frivolous objection” comment at the end of the meeting and was responding to a specific question.

“A ‘frivolous’ argument, in legal terms, is one that cannot reasonably be made under any circumstances,” Kobach wrote. “The objection passed that very low threshold, which is not saying much.”

The board will send records requests to Hawaii, Arizona and Mississippi for more documentation of Obama’s birth. They plan to meet again on Monday to discuss the matter. Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett questioned Obama’s birth certificate earlier this year and also briefly considered removing him from the ballot.

    Interesting how anyone who disputes Obutheads birth certificate is considered a conspiracy theorist or “birther” instead of recognizing that ALL of the facts have so far proven his documents are fraudulent. There has not been one single document expert to come forward and substantiate his documents, but there are more than two dozen experts, including the programs creator, who have proven it is a fraud. It’s time for the GOP to take a stand on this issue and indict, prosecute, and convict Obuthead for the crimes he has committed including this scam.

    It seems to me that ALL candidates doe POTUS and VPOTUS should have to present undeniable poor of natural born status to get on the ballot in the first place. If that proof is not forthcoming, then they should not be allowed to even be written in as a candidate.

    Enough said. This would allow states with questions about eligibility to prevent those who do not have the prerequisite proofs to deny them access to the system and therefore not allow them to get the votes at the time of the election.

    If this had been forcibly in place in 2008, we would not have the Imposter in Chief we have now. The simple fact that he refuses to produce his long form birth certificate should automatically disqualify him from being on a ballot anywhere in the USA. He has said himself that if one refuses to provide proof there is something to hide, and his citizenship seems to be one of the things he wants to hide.
