    ... Lewis-Burks said she received 14 such e-mails and more than a dozen letters — including a half-pound package mailed from Alaska — making that claim despite Obama’s birth certificate showing that he was born in Hawaii. She said the anti-Obama messages might arise from racism among people who can’t accept a black president, but she believes it’s more likely the senders are misinformed. “I think it’s ignorance,” she said. “I understand ignorance and it’s not bliss — it’s sad.” ....
  • Indiana Men File Lawsuit To Challenge Obama's Eligibility

    12/25/2008 7:28:40 PM PST · by 2ndDivisionVet · 151 replies · 4,915+ views
    INDIANAPOLIS -- Two Indiana men filed a lawsuit claiming that President-elect Barack Obama is not eligible to serve as president. The suit questions whether Obama meets the constitutional requirement that the president must be a "natural born citizen." Obama's birth certificate says he was born in Hawaii, but his father was not a U.S. citizen and some have claimed the document is a fake. The U.S. Supreme Court this month refused without comment to hear a challenge to Obama's citizenship. The Indianapolis Star reports the Indiana suit was filed in Marion Superior Court in Indianapolis by Steve Ankeny, New Castle,...

    Kevin Rader/Eyewitness News Indianapolis - Governor Mitch Daniels may be picking up more than he bargained for when he accepts an award in Washington D.C. Wednesday. The governor will be presented with the 2008 Public Official of the Year Award from Governing Magazine, as the Republican Party works to rebuild itself. If there was one thing Daniels has been adamant about, other than his campaign theme of change, it was in his determination to make his re-election campaign his last campaign. The biggest surprise one week after his re-election victory is that some Republicans now want Daniels to consider a...

    FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- An American flag flown upside down is a signal of distress. At half-staff, the flag is a sign of mourning. Jeffrey Smith figures both dire conditions describe the United States now that Barack Obama has been elected president - which explains the intentionally startling appearance of the Stars and Stripes outside his house in rural Huntertown, Ind. "Ships fly their flags upside down when they're sinking, and I see that happening to our country," said the staunchly Republican Smith, 42, who considers his actions patriotic, not disrespectful. "I'm for the Bill of Rights, and I'm concerned...

    Indianapolis - Lines were long and tempers flared Wednesday not to vote but to get paid for canvassing for Barack Obama. Several hundred people are still waiting to get their pay for last-minute campaigning. Police were called to the Obama campaign office on North Meridian Street downtown to control the crowd. The line was long and the crowd was angry at times. "I want my money today! It's my money. I want it right now!" yelled one former campaign worker. A former spokesman for the Obama campaign said 375 people were hired as part of the Vote Corps program and...

State party spokesman Jay Kenworthy says Palin's appearance last week in Noblesville sparked the party's biggest turnout of volunteers in at least four years. He's hoping for a similar effect this time. Country singer Hank Williams Jr. is scheduled...

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Some Republicans are coming forward against a recent mailing by the state party linking Sen. Barack Obama to William Ayres. The flier, which was distributed this week, calls Ayres -- who was a member of the leftist radical group Weather Underground in the 1970s -- a terrorist, a radical and a friend of Obama's. It also features a 2001 quote from The New York Times from Ayres saying, "I don't regret setting the bombs. I feel we didn't do enough," directly next to a picture of Obama.
