FLORIDA ELIGIBILITY HEARING
.TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Attorneys arguing on behalf of Barack Obama’s re-election plans today urged a Florida judge to decide that Obama is not yet the Democratic nominee for president and ignore evidence challenging his eligibility.
The arguments were raised by attorney Mark Herron on behalf of Obama in a hearing before Judge Terry Lewis in Florida, who is best known for presiding over the 2000 Bush v. Gore election dispute.
Lewis is credited with making crucial rulings in the contested 2000 presidential election when ultimately a Florida recount was halted by the U.S. Supreme Court, and George W. Bush was declared the winner.
Attorney Larry Klayman filed the challenge to Obama’s eligibility for the ballot on behalf of Michael Voeltz, who identifies himself in the complaint as “a registered member of the Democratic Party, voter, and taxpayer in Broward County.”
Attorneys representing Obama at the hearing, which was livestreamed by WND, argued that the Florida presidential preference primary, which listed Obama as the only Democrat nominee, didn’t make him the party’s nominee for president.
The judge and Mr. Klayman missed an exceptional point in response to Obama’s lawyer’s claim that the Florida Court has no place (or jurisdiction) in judging a national election (or Presidential election). …… However, THEY overlook the fact that this IS FLORIDA’S election. Indeed we have 50 separate state elections for President, NOT one.
THIS election belongs to the State of Florida. It is the State of Florida’s election to run ……. The Federal Election Commission has already said more than once that IT does not have jurisdiction into eligibility (NOT MY JOB says FEC). The FEC says it is the job of the States to run their elections.......
