Obama Needs to Prove His Citizenship Before January 20, 2009

Presidential candidate Alan Keyes, AIP leaders sue in CA court to obtain Obama citizenship proof, stop Secretary of State from certifying Electors

I received the following news release from KC this afternoon. The question of Barack Hussein Obama's qualification to be President existed before his election to this nation's highest office and now lingers during the transition period before he officially gains power. Attorney Philip Berg, whose website is, has his similar lawsuit tossed out by a lower court, which stated as an individual citizen he did not have standing to file such a case. However, I believe that he has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court and is waiting to hear from them.

Fenton, MI – November 14, 2008

Presidential candidate Alan Keyes, vice-presidential candidate
Wiley S. Drake, and the Chairman of the American Independent Party, Markham Robinson, have filed suit in California Superior Court in Sacramento seeking to bar Secretary of State Debra Bowen from certifying to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger the names of Electors, and from transmitting to each presidential Elector a Certificate of Election, until documentary proof is produced and verified showing that Senator Obama is a “natural born” citizen of the United States, and does not hold citizenship of Indonesia, Kenya or Great Britain.

In addition, they have asked that the court issue a peremptory writ barring Senator Obama’s California Electors from signing the Certificate of Vote until such documentary proof is produced and verified.

In response to questions about why the suit was being filed, Ambassador Keyes commented, “I and others are concerned that this issue be properly investigated and decided before Senator Obama takes office. Otherwise there will be a serious doubt as to the legitimacy of his tenure. This doubt would also affect the respect people have for the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. I hope the issue can be quickly
clarified so that the new President can take office under no shadow of doubt. This will be good for him and for the nation.”

Former Reagan administration official Ambassador Alan Keyes and Wiley S. Drake were the 2008 presidential and vice-presidential nominees of the
American Independent Party, which is the California affiliate of the new national America’s Independent Party.

Mission Viejo, California attorney Dr. Orly Taitz and United Justice Foundation Executive Director Gary Kreep are representing the plaintiffs in this case.

Copies of the court filing, along with further information concerning developments in this case, will be made available at, or can be obtained by contacting AIP national chairman
Tom Hoefling.

In response to many emails that Mr. Berg's website received he suggests the following action:

"We have received a lot of emails from American citizens asking what they can do to be heard regarding the issues pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Although we cannot tell you to do anything, we can answer your questions and inform you what is available so you may be heard.

"As citizens, you can individually write letters to each of the Court Justices addressing your concerns with respect to Mr. Obama's fulfillment of the requirements to serve as the President of the United States laid out in Article II, Section I of The United States Constitution."
