Georgia Birthers are trying to keep the sitting President of the United States from being on the ballot in Georgia.
Mr. Kevin R. Powell of Duluth, Georgia announced today that he has filed with the Office of Secretary of State Brian Kemp a challenge to the placement of the name of Barack Obama on the Georgia ballot for the Presidency of the United States of America. Submitted to Secretary Kemp’s office as of November 28, 2011, Powell’s challenge has now been referred to the Georgia Office of State Administrative Hearings for further proceedings. The case is styled Kevin Richard Powell v. Barack Obama, and the Office of State Administrative Hearings’ Docket Number is OSAH-SECSTATE-CE-1216823-60-MALIHI.
Powell’s challenge to Obama’s placement on the Georgia ballot is based upon the contention that Obama does not satisfy the “natural born Citizen” requirement of Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the United States Constitution. Obama’s father, Barack Obama, Sr., was a native of Kenya and a British subject who never became a United States citizen.
Powell will be represented before the Office of State Administrative Hearings by attorney J. Mark Hatfield (State Representative) of the law firm Hatfield & Hatfield, P.C. in Waycross, Georgia.
In related economic news, no new businesses want to move to Georgia because they feel the workforce, as represented through the people they elect, are absolutely crazy and believe conspiracy theories.
