Someone needs to figure out a way to get Bennett to just say he's satisfied that Mitt was born in Utah.


Romney wasn't born in Utah.





But he has friends who own all of those now being born in Utah.

Get it right!

I checked the Arizona Election Statutes but so far I have not found any statute which provides the SOS with the power to remove President Obama from the General Election Ballot. Anyone?Obama's name was allowed on the ballot for the Primary Elections, now the electors will be on the General Election ballot.

Bennett doesn't need any such authorization. He's Co-Chair of the Romney for President Campaign in Arizona.Race. Itsa. Locator.

Wait... what? I am just now putting this together.The Secretary of State -- the position charged with overseeing elections -- is co-chair of one major party's state campaign?I suppose being Arizona, this is not only legal, but mandatory. :shock:

Well, Arpaio (the co-chair of the McCain 2008 campaign) was otherwise occupied.

If there was ever a usurpation . . .





From the Wikipedia article on Katherine Harris:





2000 US presidential election


Main article: United States presidential election in Florida, 2000





As Secretary of State for the State of Florida (and co-chair of Bush's Florida election efforts), Harris was a central figure in the 2000 US presidential election in Florida. Harris certified that the Republican candidate, then-Texas Governor George W. Bush, had defeated the Democratic candidate, then-Vice President Al Gore, in the popular vote of Florida and thus certified the Republican slate of electors. The margin separating Bush from Gore was 537 votes. Harris ordered a halt after several recounts. Her ruling was upheld in the state circuit court, but was subsequently overturned on appeal by the Florida Supreme Court. That decision was reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore. In a per curiam decision, by a 7-2 vote, the Court in Bush v. Gore held that the Florida Supreme Court's method for recounting ballots was a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. By a 5–4 vote, the Court held that no alternative method could be established within the time limits set by the State of Florida. Three of the concurring justices also asserted that the Florida Supreme Court had violated Article II, § 1, cl. 2 of the Constitution, by misinterpreting Florida election law that had been enacted by the Florida Legislature.

I have a question. According to the [link]Chicago Tribune online site,http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-rt-us-usa-arizona-birtherbre84i00k-20120518,0,4262140.story[/link], Bennett described his request thus:

"At the request of a constituent, I asked the state of Hawaii for a for a verification in lieu of certified copy. We're merely asking them to officially confirm they have the president's birth certificate in their possession and are awaiting their response," he said.

Do we know what the request actually said? Because if all he wants to know is whether "they have the president's birth certificate in their possession," isn't that information publicly available as index data?

I didn't find anything either nbc. As I recall, back in March over a 1000 AZ Teatards signed a petition at one of shurf Joe's pressers. The petition demanded that either/both the Arizona Senate and House pass a resolution requiring Bennett to "inspect" Obama's papers before placing his name on the ballot. If Bennett does have the authority under the Arizona Revised Statutes to force Obama to show his papers, why the need for a legislative resolution?

Mikedunford,"4: That Bennett is inconveniencing Hawai'i in order to pander to the most small-minded and bigoted of his small-minded and bigoted constituents is so obvious as to be recognizable by a repeatedly concussed chipmunk. " =D>

I think the solution is for Hawai'i to construe the Co-chair of the Romney Campaign's request as one seeking to know whether the public birth index shows that Barack Hussein Obama, II, is set forth on those records as a birth on August 4, 1961. Since it's a public record I see no harm in confirming it and sending a copy of the relevant page to Mr. Bennett free of charge.

You obviously have not been paying attention. Any little give by the State of Hawaii will start another floodgate of birthers bothering them and taking up their time and resources all over again. More and more demands will soon be forthcoming if they give in just a little. And, along with the demands will come more threats, more lawsuits, etc. etc. etc. All the info the SOS needs is readily available on the web if he's truly interested...unless he's accusing Hawaii of fraud. Then he should file charges.
