Skip to comments.Bush v. Gore judge: Your evidence, Mr. Obama
Posted on 05/31/2012 6:26:26 PM PDT by Seizethecarp
A hearing has been scheduled in a Florida court to allow attorneys representing the White House to support their claim that the term natural born citizen in the U.S. Constitution means something other than the offspring of two American citizens.
Judge Terry Lewis in Leon County has set a hearing for June 18 to consider arguments from both sides of a challenge to Obamas name on the 2012 state election ballot.
Lewis is credited with making crucial rulings in the contested 2000 presidential election, when ultimately a Florida vote recount was halted by the U.S. Supreme Court and George W. Bush was declared the winner.
Attorney Larry Klaymans law firm filed the challenge to Obamas name on the ballot on behalf of Democrat Michael Voeltz, a registered member of the Democrat Party, voter, and taxpayer in Broward County, who was an eligible elector for the Florida Primary of Jan. 31, 2012.
Klayman told WND that during a hearing today on discovery issues in the case, Lewis noted that while Klaymans brief cited a U.S. Supreme Courts decision defining natural born citizen as the offspring of two citizens of the nation, the White Houses arguments provided no citations.
Klayman had cited the U.S. Supreme Court case Minor v. Happersett from 1875.
Lewis ordered further briefing on the issue before the hearing.

This has the making of being the next media scrum and cause of panic in Chicago Obot HQ!
Thanks for posting this.
FL district Judge Lewis who wrote a superior ruling in Bush v. Gore ultimately upheld in part by SCOTUS, challenges Barry's legal team to cite a SCOTUS definition of NBC superior to the MvH case NBC definition cited by Klayman! Woohoo!
How come WingNut Daily is the only one reporting on this? No one is going to give a damn unless it makes it into the real news outlets.
(Hi there Fogblowers!)
“No one is going to give a damn unless it makes it into the real news outlets.”
I suggest patience. Leon County is in the boonies. Just wait until the MSM and Obot Fogblowers get the courthouse keyed into their GPS systems! They will be there, IMO.
I don’t mind quoting from the thread post:
“Judge Terry Lewis in Leon County has set a hearing for June 18 to consider arguments from both sides of a challenge to Obamas name on the 2012 state election ballot.
“Lewis is credited with making crucial rulings in the contested 2000 presidential election, when ultimately a Florida vote recount was halted by the U.S. Supreme Court and George W. Bush was declared the winner.”
Interesting. Maybe we’ll see an actual examination of the definition.
The REAL question is that of Øbozo's Constitutional eligibility, which he clearly does not have, since he has a severe loyalty conflict, via his father's non-citizenship and his own inheritance of that same disloyalty.
Of course, his Muslim background further exacerbates the issue -- but the first Amendment pretty well covers his @$$ on that one...
One can only hope that Lewis does find him ineligible, and that will be the kick that starts other State SOSes toppling like dominoes! And, then, after the election, (no matter who wins) America will have to face the incomprehensible mess of dealing with the aftermath of four years without a valid President at the helm... :-(
Does any State still have a working electric chair for Pelosi?
“Leon County is in the boonies.”
Tallahassee is in the boonies?
Now that you mention it, I think I am thinking of Sauls, too. I wanted to get the story up fast so I haven’t had a chance to refresh my memory of the Bush v. Gore saga, yet.
I apologize to any offended N. Floridians!
Another ‘dog and pony show’ exercise in futility. I bet Obama’s lawyers don’t even appear, nor will they be admonished for it.
The case is entitled Voeltz v. Obama, et. al. (No. 2012 CA 467) and is being heard in the Circuit Court Of The Second Judicial Circuit In And For Leon County, Florida.
There is the element of a higher percentage of Florida Crackers in that area...
Thanks for keeping us informed.
I’ll be following this one but ... damn ... I hate to get my hopes up again.
I was sure that case in Georgia was the clincher.
Still, seeing Obummer excluded from the Florida ballot would be sweet indeed!
