Van Irion's eligibility lawsuit
I really like Van Irion. He's taken a novel approach to the eligibility issue as he has done with his Obamacare lawsuit.
On 10/25/11 Liberty Legal Foundation filed two simultaneous lawsuits against the Democratic Party. Both lawsuits request injunctions prohibiting the Party from certifying that Obama is Constitutionally qualified to run for the office of President in the 2012 election. Without such a certification from the Party, Obama will not appear on any ballot in the 2012 general election.
Neither lawsuit discuss Obama’s place of birth or his birth certificate. These issues are completely irrelevant to our argument. LLF’s lawsuit simply points out that the Supreme Court has defined “natural-born citizen” as a person born to two parents who were both U.S. citizens at the time of the natural-born citizen’s birth. Obama’s father was never a U.S. citizen. Therefore, Obama can never be a natural-born citizen. His place of birth is irrelevant.
Despite numerous legal challenges, no case to date has been able to get a hearing on the merits related to Obama’s natural-born status. We have studied all of these cases in order learn from the rulings and avoid the pitfalls that stopped those lawsuits. We learned that the only entity remaining that can be held responsible for vetting a candidate’s qualifications to hold office, is the political party that nominates the candidate. All states rely upon the truthfulness of representations by the political parties, that their candidates are qualified to hold the federal office for which they are nominated. By naming the National Democratic Party as the defendant we not only target the entity responsible for vetting their candidate, we also avoid taking on any state or federal government. The Democratic Party is a private entity, without any government immunities or government procedural advantages.
We also learned that Presidential candidates that are registered with the Federal Election Commission have standing to ask a court to keep another candidate off the ballot. That’s why two of our lead plaintiffs are FEC-registered Presidential Candidates.
Because we have lead plaintiffs that are Presidential Candidates, and because those plaintiffs are also Liberty Legal members, Liberty Legal has standing to sue as well. If one plaintiff has standing to sue, all plaintiffs have standing to sue.
You can join our lawsuit as a class member and be part of this challenge! We have a class for all people that object to having a Presidential candidate appear on the ballot who is not Constitutionally qualified to hold the office. If you agree that the Constitution should be followed, please add your voice to ours. Please join our class action lawsuit to protect the legitimacy of the ballot.
