    ... 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

    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...

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.

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.

County Clerk Susan Kirk said Tuesday that several people have called her to report being hounded by campaign workers at their doorsteps and over the telephone. She said one man reported he was offered 25 cents to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Although none of the roughly half-dozen callers can name who allegedly harassed them, Kirk said all have said it was a person or persons who identified themselves as supporters of...

    Indiana's voter registration law, which requires a photo identification at the polls, is considered to be perhaps the strictest such law in the nation. Now, it also may prove to be the one that is the most reassuring to Hoosiers. Indeed, if there is any attempt at voter identity theft in Indiana, as is being alleged in multiple states, the Hoosier registration law may prove to be the strongest counter measure anywhere. In short, Indiana's registration law, often criticized by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Indiana Democratic Party, requires that the voter have a photo identification issued by...

Many had the exact same handwriting and signatures on them. One listed a person by the name of Jimmy Johns. But that turned out to be a restaurant. An attorney for ACORN said the group believes the allegations are an effort to discourage ACORN from doing their work, and to suppress votes.

    A new Obama ad that will air statewide in Indiana features Barney Smith. Smith claims to be a lifelong Republican who supports Obama, in part, because he was laid off by Thomson in Marion. He blames GOP policies for his job loss. Smith is best known now for delivering a memorable line during a short speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. “We need a President who puts Barney Smith before Smith Barney,” he said, prompting cheers. As you might expect, the line is in the new commercial. It has more meaning now than when he first delivered it.

"Don't be fooled," Obama told the crowd surrounding him in a large barn. "John McCain's party, with the help of John McCain, has been in charge" for nearly eight years. McCain has vowed to wipe...
