Posted on 12/17/2012 6:36:05 PM PST by Seizethecarp
The chairman of the Arizona Republican Party and two other Arizona members of the Electoral College on Monday questioned President Barack Obama's birth certificate during the formal casting of the state's electoral votes.
Arizona GOP Chairman Tom Morrissey said during the state's Electoral College meeting that Obama did not produce a "legitimate" birth certificate, KNAU reports.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), who has vetoed bills to require presidential candidates to show a birth certificate to Arizona's secretary of state, said she disagreed with the trio's stance. Secretary of State Ken Bennett (R), the presiding officer of the Arizona Electoral College, also said he disagreed with what the three said.

Snarky comments about Barry’s BC at the AZ electoral round-up! But will one house member and one senator object on Jan 6?
hm, I think the courts would be foolish to go with their standard “you don’t have standing” approach because these are the electors: they have personal involvement and the ethical obligation to ensure their votes are for a valid candidate.
They value their lives too much and their country and Constitution too little.
She woke up one morning with a cut off horse head in her bed. She, ALSO, like so many others got the message of Breitbarting!!!
Their questions are a day late and a dollar short. I agree with previous comment. COWARDS.
Hmmm...since AZ went for Romney and AZ is winner-take-all, they all voted for Romney. But I would think they might have standing to have their preferred candidate not be defeated by an ineligible candidate. (IANAL)
Too bad Arpaio and Zullo didn't have a legal opening to at least make a presentation (or were denied one). The fix is in as far as the GOPe is concerned on the NBC issue. Heck, they still want to keep the door open for Rubio, Jindal and Haley as well.
I would like to commend the 3 for their courage in bringing this up.
Of course Jan Brewer and others will not back them up./
Jan has been duly chastised by Obama.She is scared.
we need to vote to remove any politicians who continue to cover this up
the issue merits review through the proper channels
and the American public deserve it be done per our Constitution
Thanks, and Ping.
Or perhaps she just thinks birtherism is stupid.... You know, like most people do.
... to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;--to Controversies between two or more States;-- between a State and Citizens of another State,--between Citizens of different States,--between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.
Under the last clause, one can make a compelling argument that any citizen of the United States could bring a case against Obama as a foreign citizen or subject because he's lacks article II eligibility for the office of president. Further, one could cite Fairchild v. Hughes which suggested that legal standing only applies in challenges against the Constitutionality of statutes (which is not at question here), and that:
Plaintiff has only the right, possessed by every citizen, to require that the government be administered according to law
The seating of a president certainly falls within this scope as there is a vested right for every citizen that the president should be Constitutionally eligible for office, and that ensuring this is executed properly is a matter of ensuring that the government is administered according to the Constitution.
The Huffpost article is poorly written - doesn’t explain what this means. Is this a legal objection, and what is the procedure as a result of this objection? Does this go to court? What happens?
Thanks for the ping.
If he doesn’t have a valid original long form BC, then he is an immigrant.
Subpoena his immigration records from DHS.
Based on no particular logic or evidence.
I think Carl Gallups may have oversold the ability of these “constitutionally authorized” AZ electors to accomplish anything other than grouse from the sidelines, which is why I called it “snark.”
Their job today, as I understand it, was to rubber-stamp the AZ electoral vote for Romney. They did that. They have no votes to withhold from Obama.
At least they spoke up, and generated a buzz that even made it to HuffPo. With most of the cable showing pictures of the CT “baby angels” (RIP) 24/7 I’m not sure how many folks will notice.
