Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, an informal advisor to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, said on Thursday he and his fellow members of a state board were considering removing President Barack Obama from the Kansas ballot this November.
The board is looking at a complaint filed by Joe Montgomery, of Manhattan, Kan., who claimed the Obama is not a natural born U.S. citizen and so is ineligible to be president. The man appears to be part of a group of conspiracy theorists known as “birthers,” who deny Obama’s birth certificate is real.
Doug: Oh, FFS. What do you wanna’ bet these people all support tort reform to end frivolous lawsuits? I’m sorry, but if after four years you are still hung up on Obama’s citizenship, you shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
But personally? I hope Kansas does it. I really do. I’m pretty sure what they’re suggesting is against the law, unconstitutional… and I think they’d find themselves in some trouble.
But go ahead. Do it. But here’s the deal. When someone throws the challenge flag and you’re overruled? You lose your senate and house seats for a decade; no more federal funding for your state; and if you miss a tax payment – we start bombing.
