This past Thursday, January 26, 2012, an administrative law judge in Atlanta conducted a hearing into whether Barack Obama, a sitting President of the United States of America who’s seeking reelection, should be allowed to have his name be placed on the electoral ballot of the state of Georgia.
But the defendant, Obama, and his attorney Michael Jablonski failed to appear in court, and so forfeited their defense. All of which means that Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi can simply make a default judgment in favor of the plaintiffs.
I received an email that claims five more states are joining Georgia in demanding that Obama produce proof of his constitutional eligibility as a Natural Born Citizen, in order that his name be placed on the states’ primary election ballots.
After going to the URL sources listed in the email, I can only find confirmation for one state, instead of five. That state is Alabama.
An article published on Liberty News Online, Jan. 7, 2012, claims that an Alabama court has announced that it will hear arguments as to whether Obama is in fact eligible to appear on the state’s presidential primary ballot.
Several Alabama citizens have filed a lawsuit within the Alabama Circuit Court to “prevent certification of President Barack Obama for 2012 Alabama ballot access pending final hearing based on factual evidentiary hearings.”
By agreeing to hear the case, the Alabama Courts have effectively stalled any efforts by the Democratic Party to place Obama on the ballot.
At the same time, the Alabama court also is recognizing that ordinary Alabama citizens do in fact have legal standing to question and challenge Obama’s eligibility. In the past, judge after judge have ruled that ordinary citizens did not have standing, i.e., that they were not sufficiently harmed by the actions of the defendant and therefore had no legal right to bring their cases before the courts.
Despite this Liberty News article, however, I cannot find the Alabama judge’s name, the location of the Alabama court that allegedly will have a hearing, nor can I find the names of the plaintiffs and the names of the attorney(s).
If you have better information, please leave a comment!
Meanwhile, Capt. Pamela Barnett (Ret.) has founded a website and initiative that provide assistance to citizens who wish to challenge Obama’s constitutional eligibility and name placement on the 2012 presidential ballot. She and her team are currently compiling election law from all 50 states and will be providing forms and sample letters which registered voters can use to file a complaint.
