    Filed on appeal almost a year ago, a legal challenge against Barack Obama remains lurking in the hallways and offices of the Alabama Supreme Court, where at least two justices already have indicated an interest in the radioactive issue of Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president. Court officials confirmed to WND today that the case brought by attorney Larry Klayman, who founded Freedom Watch, and most recently hit the headlines for a successful fight against Obama’s program run by the National Security Agency to spy on Americans, remains on the docket. It’s been fully briefed, but the justices haven’t...

    Former congressman Virgil Goode Jr. will remain on Virginia’s presidential ballot after state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II concluded an investigation into fraud allegations leveled at Goode by the state Republican Party. Cuccinelli found, according to a news release from his office, that “while there may have been certain irregularities, nothing he examined would prevent Goode from being certified for the Virginia ballot in the upcoming November presidential election.” Goode represented southwest Virginia in the state Senate and then in Congress for a combined 36 years, as a Democrat, an Independent and then a Republican. Now he is running for...

    On September 4, 2012, Mitt Romney may have lost Virginia and the Presidential election. But Republicans could still win easily. This election will turn on two questions Bill Clinton is pounding on: Who caused the disastrous economic collapse in 2007 and 2008? Will putting a Republican back in the White House give us another economic crash? Republican strategists and consultants have been running away from these questions. Bill Clinton passionately blamed Republicans at the Democrat National Convention. Republicans are aiming for “just enough to squeak by.” But “good enough” is almost never good enough. Now on September 4, Virgil Goode...

    The Nader Effect In Play After Virginia's Decision By Scott Bomboy A decision in Virginia to allow Virgil Goode on the presidential ballot could shake up the national election. And Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has now come into the spoiler picture. For the past few weeks, Goode, the Constitutional party presidential candidate, and Johnson have been afterthoughts in the national presidential campaign involving President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. But Goode won the right on Tuesday to appear on the Virginia ballot, in a move that could hurt Romney’s chances of taking the key swing state in November. And now...

    Former Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode has turned in 20,500 signatures in his quest to make the presidential ballot in his home state, an effort that could potentially derail Republican Mitt Romney's presidential aspirations in a critical battleground state. At least 10,000 valid signatures are due Friday at noon to the State Board of Elections to make the ballot. Election officials will next send the petitions to local registrars to verify the signatures. Goode said he is optimistic he'll qualify, but just this week, the Constitution Party was forced to back out of the presidential race in Pennsylvania after the Republican...

    FREDERICKSBURG — Racing against a Friday deadline to collect enough signatures to make the Virginia ballot, Constitution Party presidential candidate Virgil Goode says Mitt Romney is “leading Republicans over a cliff.” Constitution Party presidential candidate and Virginia native Virgil Goode could spoil Mitt Romney’s party in the Old Dominion. Goode, a former six-term GOP congressman from Southside Richmond, told Virginia Watchdog in an exclusive interview he is “cautiously optimistic” about qualifying for the November ballot. The state requires 10,000 signatures from registered voters. Goode says his campaign has submitted nearly 20,000 signatures while going for more to ensure he has...

Clymer acknowledged that many of the thousands of signatures were invalidated during two days of review...

Even better, Virginia has purchased the Social Security Death Index database so state election officials can run computerized matches against Virginia voter rolls.The new policy of the Virginia State Board has paid off.Virginia’s initial sweep has yielded 10,000 dead voters who were never before removed from the rolls. These zombies won’t be able to vote, through a...

    Constitution Party presidential candidate Virgil Goode said Tuesday he does not know why the Virginia State Board of Elections is asking for a probe into matters pertaining to his campaign. State officials are keeping quiet on the investigation request. The elections board on Monday voted unanimously to ask Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to probe “suspected petition fraud” on forms that the Constitution Party submitted in efforts to get Goode’s name on the ballot for the Nov. 6 presidential election. In a phone interview, Goode said nobody from either the elections board or the attorney general’s office has contacted him,...

    President Obama is of the view that he knows the key factor for the re-election, and it is very close to the White House. Last night at a high school in Leesburg in Virginia, Obama told supporters that if we win Virginia, we will win this election. Obama became the first presidential candidate four years ago to win in Virginia, since President Lyndon Johnson in 1964. He was also winner in the neighboring North Carolina, the first Democrat to do so since Jimmy Carter in 1976. The race this year in Virginia also features a wild card, the possibility of...

    By BULLETIN, AP REPORTS - Former congressman Virgil Goode said Tuesday that a judge’s determination that a Virginia election law is unconstitutional will not affect his candidacy for president. U.S. District Judge John Gibney on Monday struck down a law that allowed only state residents to circulate petitions to get presidential candidates on the general election ballot. Ruling in favor of the Libertarian Party of Virginia, Gibney said the restriction severely burdened the party’s freedom of speech and is not narrowly tailored to promote a compelling state interest. Goode, who lives in Rocky Mount and formerly represented the 5th District...

    Most people outside Southwest Virginia have never heard of Virgil Goode, a former Franklin County congressman with a distinctive drawl who conceivably could decide the presidential election. But he is well known to President Barack Obama's team of political advisers. Goode served six terms in Congress and is gathering signatures to appear on the ballot here as the presidential candidate from the Constitution Party. He's already on the ballot in more than a dozen other states with an anti-immigration, pro-term limit platform he hopes makes a dent with the electorate. It's not likely to be much of a dent, but...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's re-election effort is paying close attention to two candidates mounting third-party campaigns for the presidency, believing they could draw votes from Republican rival Mitt Romney and help Obama win a few tightly contested states. One candidate is Virgil Goode, a former conservative Virginia congressman who is running as a member of the Constitution Party. The other is Gary Johnson, a former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico who is the Libertarian Party's presidential nominee. Obama's team has scenarios whereby Obama can win states like Virginia and Colorado with less than 50 percent of the...

    While many on the right fear that Constitution Party presidential candidate Virgil Goode might just draw enough votes in his native Virginia to tip the Old Dominion’s 14 electoral votes from Mitt Romney to Barack Obama, the former six-term congressman made it clear he doesn’t care. Goode, in fact, feels that “in many ways, for conservatives, it might be better to have Obama as president next year rather than Romney.” The 65-year-old Goode spoke to Human Events last week as he and his supporters were in the process of gathering the 10,000 signatures they need to submit before the Aug....
