If at first you don’t succeed, try again, right?
That’s the advice a group of birthers in California took to heart after their last attempt to sue the state over the eligibility of President Obama to appear on the state ballot failed.
The same group, lead by Republican write-in candidate John Albert Dummett, and Markham Robinson, chairman of the American Independent Party of California, has filed another lawsuit with the secretary of state demanding that she verify President Obama was born in the U.S.
A group of minor party candidates and conspiracy theorists have sued California Secretary of State Debra Bowen to demand that she verify the eligibility of all presidential candidates seeking to be on the November ballot.
The so-called Birthers filed the lawsuit in state court in Sacramento, taking up the advice of a federal appeals court last year that they bring their suspicions that President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States to a court’s attention during an election, not afterward.
And what if the secretary of state did verify his eligibility? Then what? Will they accept that he was born in the U.S.?
I doubt it, but I also doubt they’ve thought that far ahead. Like a dog chasing a car, what happens if you catch it?
