Kansas State Board May Remove President Obama from Election Ballot over Birth Certificate
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said that the State Objections Board was considering removing President Barack Obama from the Kansas ballot this November, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal.
Kobach, an informal advisor to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, said the State Objections Board agreed consider whether to take President Obama off the ballot because they lacked sufficient evidence about his birth certificate.
Kobach told the Topeka Capital-Journal: “I don’t think it’s a frivolous objection, I do think the factual record could be supplemented.”
The State Objections Board is looking at a complaint filed by Joe Montgomery, of Manhattan, Kansas, who claims President Obama is not a natural born U.S. citizen.
The State Objections Board will send records requests to Hawaii, Arizona and Mississippi for more documentation of President Obama’s birth.
President Obama released a copy of his long-form birth certificate in 2011.
