Eligibility Appeal Seeks Level Election Playing Field
A man who was on the American Independent Party’s presidential ticket in California in 2008 as well as a certified elector for the party have asked a full panel of a federal appeals court to hear their claim that Barack Obama wasn’t qualified to be president, stacking the election unfairly against qualified candidates.
In the case, that a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently determined that election fraud suspected in the campaign essentially became moot when Obama was inaugurated.
The lawsuit was filed on the day of Obama’s inauguration. Obama flubbed the oath of office, and the White House reported he retook it in private later.
The case represents the work of two groups of plaintiffs, one led by lawyer Orly Taitz and the other by attorney Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation.
The petition for a rehearing of the full bench was filed today by Kreep on behalf of his clients. Taitz earlier told WND her plaintiffs will pursue further action but which step would be taken was as yet unclear.
