A state board
in Kansas that had planned a hearing Monday to examine evidence of
Barack Obama’s eligibility for the Oval Office was left in limbo today
when the plaintiff, citing “animosity and intimidation,” abruptly
withdrew his complaint.
According to the Topeka Capital-Journal, Joe Montgomery of Manhattan, Kan., had filed a complaint with the Kansas Objections Board asking that Obama’s name be removed.
He had cited the fact that Obama has confirmed his father was a
Kenyan national, meaning Obama would not qualify for the Oval Office
under the Constitution’s requirement that a president be a “natural born
citizen.” Court cases and experts have defined natural-born citizen as the offspring of two citizen parents.
The state board, including three elected state officials,
determined earlier this week there was not enough information available
to make a decision, and they asked for evidence.
