I missed something here. What is the argument that Obama shouldn’t have been allowed to run for the Senate? I thought Keyes was a party to this suit because he’d been a (minor) candidate for the presidency in 2008.
You also can’t serve in the Senate unless you are a citizen. Keyes was a last minute substitute for Republican opposition in the Senate race after Emmanual released the sealed terms of the previous opponent’s divorce proceedings, which caused him to withdraw. The Chicago Way.
