On February 2, 2012, an objection to candidacy came before the Illinois Board of Elections. The board decision dismissed the objection, in favor of the respondent, and hid the evidence presented by the objector.
The candidate is Barack Obama. The Illinois State Board of Elections (SBOE) accepted a copy of the birth certificate that Mr. Obama presented to the American people in early 2011 as proof that he is eligible for the office of President of the United States.
The SBOE stated in their decision that the objector’s interpretation, which was based on a US Supreme Court ruling in Minor v Happersett, that natural born required parents who were citizens was incorrect.
The SBOE stated that the document candidate Obama presented as his birth certificate established his eligibility as a “natural born citizen.”
The definition of natural born citizen, as stated in its original source (The Law of Nations, Book 1, Chapter 19, Section 212),and in Minor v. Happersett, is a person born in the country to parents who are citizens. Barack Obama’s father was not a US citizen.
On March 1, 2012 the Maricopa County Arizona Cold Case Posse presented a report of their six month investigation that stated there is probable cause that the document claimed to be Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery, and that the Selective Service Card claimed to be Mr. Obama’s is also an obvious forgery.
