BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — A Birmingham man challenging President Barack Obama’s right to be on the Alabama ballot has hired a California lawyer who has filed several similar suits across the country, and is asking for a delay in a hearing set for Monday.
Orly Taitz, a well-known figure in the “birther” movement that questions Obama’s citizenship and right to serve as president, announced on her web site today she has agreed to represent Albert E. Hendershot. The web site also included a motion she says she plans to file in Jefferson County Circuit Court this morning asking for the hearing delay.
The motion has not appeared in the electronic official case file.
Hendershot filed suit Dec. 14 against Mark Kennedy, chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party. He is seeking an order from Circuit Judge Helen Shores Lee to bar the party from certifying Obama on the Democratic ballot in the March 13 primary.
Only a natural born citizen can legally be President of the USA. ”Obama” is not one. See: http://www.art2superpac.com/issues.html
