CORRECTION, vote was 20-9 with 1 not voting
Can he be deported if he fails to comply?
hughly unlikey, I don’t even think the current Congress will have the spines to remove him when he fails to produce the document to back his oh, so fictional story of his nativity location, i.e., Kapi’olani Hosp. Or was it Queen’s. Oh Heck, who can keep up. He’s claimed them both, now that is a miracle birth if I ever heard one.
This could get interesting. My bet is that O will keep himself off the ballot which will look mighty suspicious.
I guess when you can claim the god-like attribute of omnipresence, that's plausible.
I read the legislation that came out of the Senate & it is a smart bill. Worded very well as to not fold under scrutiny.
Five will get you ten that Barry submits the COLB and tries to gut it out.
Have several hundred SEIU owned Judges stopped this yet?
Count on the the stopping this as well.

Arizona Senate approves 'birther' bill
PHOENIX - The Arizona Senate has approved a revised bill requiring presidential candidates to prove they are U.S. citizens eligible to run for the office.
The bill approved Wednesday gives candidates additional ways to prove they meet the constitutional requirements to be president.
It was prompted by the ongoing claim by some that there is no proof President Barack Obama was born in the United States and is therefore ineligible to be president.
Democrats argued the bill exceeds the state's authority and say state officials are not fully qualified to determine the validity of a candidate's documents.
Republicans argue the U.S. Constitution gives state legislatures the right to determine how federal elections are conducted.
The bill now goes to the House for a final vote.
Drudge probably monitors O.R.Y.R. but doesn't want to link directly to the site. So, he waits to see when another source picks it up.
YAYYYY!!!!! I didn’t think they were gonna do it!

Article II, Section I of the Constitution of the United States, states that no person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.
Section 16-226 of Arizona Revised Statute defines nonpartisan elections as an election that is held by a special district and that is not held concurrently with the general election.

A nomination petition as defined in section 16-314 means the form or forms used for obtaining the required number of signatures of qualified electors, which is circulated by or on behalf of the person wishing to become a candidate for a political office.

It should pass the House easily. LoL! Hey Obama go play golf.
Yes. Question is, will the Governor sign it after being paid a visit!?!?
“The bill approved Wednesday gives candidates additional ways to prove they meet the constitutional requirements to be president”.
when obama refused to give his long form to the Hawaiian election office, he was able to “override” them with a private meeting with democratic leadership officals in Hawaii.
It appears obama is still one step ahead of Arizona, the current short form is now the new legal document. He will submit it and demand that they accept it.
The last I looked, this law gave any citizen the power in AZ the ability to challenge Obama’s documentation if Obama showed up with an abstract COLB.
"I got a phone call from Lyle Rowland, sponsor of the presidential eligibility certification bill in Missouri.The bill finally passed the committees and is going to a full vote of the house this week or next week. Demand that your state representatives and senators vote for the bill.
I got a phone call from Leo Berman, Texas state senator, sponsor of the presidential eligibility certification bill in TX. Mr. Berman is extremely upset with members of the committee refusing to vote on the bill. They just seat on it, while they know that majority of of the state representatives and senators are willing to vote for it. Call each and every committee member and demand scheduling of the bill for vote tomorrow, immediate passing of the bill. Demand answers, whether committee members received some consideration or were intimidated into not bringing thebill to a vote. Call public integrity of unit of the office of the TX Attorney General Greg Abbott and demand immediate investigation, whether committee members received any considaration or were intimidated into not bringing this bill to a vote.
We need the same investigation in each state.
As the sessions are ending we need all the bill out of committees as original bills or striker bills this week or next week."
I don’t see why not. I’d tell “the visitors” to piss up a rope. And there is no love loss between Obama and Brewer; Obama has sued Arizona.
