The chief elections officer in the state of South Dakota says the issue of President Obama's eligibility to the office is a huge concern among the voters in that state, and he thinks the constitutional qualifications for the office are supremely important to the nation.
"I would hope that all Americans would find constitutional qualifications to be an important issue," Chris Nelson told WND today. "I would hope there would not be any questions about the issue."
The comments came after Nelson was quoted in a Rapid City newspaper article that poked fun at the issue.
Under the headline, "OK, who doesn't think he was born in Hawaii?" the newspaper said, "Raise your hand, roll your eyes and sigh softly if you do."
"Apparently a bunch of folks still doubt he was born in the U.S. of A. as in, Hawaii and some still spend a great deal of time and energy on that issue," the report said.
So the newspaper asked the three Republican candidates for the state's U.S. House seat, and the Democratic incumbent, whether they believe he was born in Hawaii, "or someplace else."

So, what’s the problem if we ask Zer0 for his papers? My daughter had to show them in order to play soccer!
Where has this guy been?? Dozens of lawsuits have been filed trying to force zero to produce his BC and every single one has been dismissed because the plaintiff "lacked standing" with the court to bring the suit. When an American citizen "lacks the standing" to request that the president or ANY elected official produce documentation proving their eligibility to serve, what is the function of the Constitution? This is a fundamental issue that ANY citizen, whether native or naturalized, should be able to challenge any politician's qualifications and force them to produce proof.
There’s not a lot that can be done now to force Obie to prove he’s a natural born citizen. Even if there was, and he couldn’t, he wouldn’t step down, nor could he be forced to. And any court battle would take years. However, it’s entirely within any state’s rights to insist a candidate do so in order to appear on that state’s ballot in a presidential election. Only one state would need to do so. A presidential election is not a federal election. There’s no such thing in the US. A presidential election is comprised of 50 individual state elections. the people don’t elect presidents, the states do.
