Larry Klayman, head of Freedom Watch, sent a stern warning last week to the top lawyer for the Democratic Party. His message: do not certify Barack H. Obama as eligible to the office of President. In his letter he reviewed the history of Obama eligibility challenges, and how Hawaiian officials have answered (or not answered) them.
Obama eligibility warning in detail
Larry Klayman wrote his letter to Robert Bauer, general counsel to the Democratic National Committee. In it Klayman said no one can know whether Barack Obama is eligible or not.
Klayman dwelt on the letter from Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett to Hawaii State Registrar Alvin T. Onaka. In that letter, Bennett asked Onaka whether the Obama birth certificate document told the truth or not. Onaka did not do this. All he could verify was the information in the short form that Bennett sent him. But Onaka did not say that the White House document was a true copy of the long form.
Klayman showed that Onaka broke Hawaiian law by not verifying the information as Bennett asked. He added:
The only legal reason for Onaka to not verify these facts is if he cannot legally do so.
Klayman further warned Bauer not to try to excuse Onaka by saying that he “overlooked” any part of the request.
Klayman said that only one thing would satisfy the Obama eligibility question now. The Hawaii Department of Health must show the original long-form birth certificate to a judge.
Until that happens,…no one can state with any legal certainty that candidate Obama is even old enough to be President, much less that he [is a] natural born citizen [as] Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 [defines one].
Other Obama eligibility legal history
Klayman did not mention any other Obama eligibility challenge. But one such challenge in New Jersey touches on the same point. Administrative Law Judge Jeff S. Masin heard the case of Purpura and Moran v. Obama in his court in April. At that hearing, Alexandra Hill argued the case for Obama. She refused to introduce the White House birth certificate document at that hearing. Instead she argued that New Jersey election law does not require any showing of Presidential eligibility of a candidate in a primary election.
Nick Purpura, the lead plaintiff in that case, reminded CNAV that his case is still pending. He also recalled why Hill declined to introduce the document. She did not want to lay that document open to challenge.
Purpura feels that the Obama eligibility issue is still vital, no matter who wins the election:
If Obama was never eligible, then Obama was never President. And that means that every bill and executive order he signed, every regulation that came from any agency or department, and any appointment he made, judicial or administrative, is not valid.
