Sep 21, 2012: This ballot thing is an actual problem for Obama, not one made up by tinfoil wearing birther nuts.
A Florida Democrat has asked the First District Court of Appeal to order legal discovery in the matter. Discovery is a process in which each side examines evidence held by the other, something the Appellant was denied by Judge Terry Lewis, the first judge who heard the case and decided Obama is eligible because he says he is.
The appeal filing explains,
“A question of fact such as this cannot be determined without the parties having been given the opportunity to take discovery. Appellant was not permitted to investigate through discovery or even observe the underlying documents that allegedly establish appellee Obama’s natural born citizenship.
“If appellee Obama was born outside of the United States then he is not a natural born citizen, or even a citizen. In addition to being born within the United States, as noted above, a natural born citizen must be born to two U.S. citizen parents. If it is shown through discovery that Barack H. Obama Sr., appellee Obama’s father, was not a U.S. citizen at the time of appellee Obama’s birth, then appellee Obama is clearly not a natural born citizen as required by the U.S. Constitution.”
The appeal filing also cites the evidence produced by Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s special investigative unit, which has asserted that the birth documentation from Hawaii that Obama claimed was “proof positive” of his Hawaiian birth is not authentic.
