Former Obama Opponent, Alan Keyes, Suing to Prove President-Elect’s Citizenship

November 19, 2008

According to a press release from the American Independent Party,
former presidential candidate Alan Keyes and other members of the party
have filed suit in California Superior Court in Sacramento to stop the
state from giving its electoral votes to President-elect Barack Obama
until documentary evidence is provided to prove Obama is indeed a
natural born citizen of the United States.

Keyes also ran
against Obama as a Republican for the U.S. Senate seat in Illinois in
2004. Obama won that election to serve his first and only term in the
U.S. Senate.

The Obama campaign countered similar
accusations early in 2008 by posting Obama’s certification of live
birth, and saying: “Barack Obama was born in the state of Hawaii in
1961, a native citizen of the United States of America.”

A copy of this document is available from the Obama campaign:


In October the Hawaii State Health Department declared the certificate is genuine.
