Supposedly Bennett's been corresponding with Jerome Corsi of WND:

Here's what Corsi posted on the "WorldNetDaily" about communicating with Bennett, as Corsi claims he has an "assurance" from Bennett to check it out:

"Because of the importance and profile of the president's case, and at the request of many constituents, I have gone the extra step of asking the state of Hawaii to verify the facts contained in his birth certificate," Bennett wrote in response to concerns last month. "Hawaii is bound by their own statutes to provide such verifications to other state officials in their official duties.

"With all due respect, the [Arpaio] investigation has not proven anything other than raised probable cause that the birth certificate posted on the White House website 'may be' a forgery. The next lawful step would be for the sheriff's office to turn their findings over to the county attorney for prosecution," he continued. "Evidence would be brought on both sides and a judge should issue a decision.

"Whether or not that happens, if Hawaii can't or won't provide verification of the president's birth certificate, I will not put his name on the ballot," he wrote.

"I can tell from the tone and language of your letters that the only acceptable outcome for you is that his name not be on the ballot, period. That may be what happens, but under my watch, it won't happen based on opinions, petitions, probability or pledges to support or oppose me in the 2014 governor's race. My oath of office is to uphold the Constitution and laws of our state and country, and I'm going to do that by following the law," he said.

It's Obama's fault for presidenting while black.

Romney needs to prove he was not manufactured in China. We need to see his Certificate of Manufacturing Origin papers.

So, if one or several wingnut election officials decide not to put Obama (or any otherwise legit candidate) on the ballot... is there any legal recourse? I don't have the slightest idea how things like this work, but surely there must be some mechanism in place to stop these idiots from just arbitrarily fucking around with the state ballots just because they feel like it.

re: #4 Spongebath Squaredance

It's sad, but perhaps one useful thing that's come from the '10 tea party wave election is that it's demonstrated a number of places where our system of government is inherently fragile when there are enough folks at the levers of power who see governing as a scorched earth, poison the wells, salt the fields, zero sum game (see also debt ceiling votes, perhaps now and for all time, a political bargaining chip to be seriously ransomed each time it comes up).

Oh, BTW, best part of this story:

[Link: tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com...]

Bennett said he was following the lead of the state’s eccentric Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a fellow Republican who ordered an investigation into the president’s birth certificate last year and concluded the document released by the White House is a forgery. Bennett said he is now trying to get verification from state officials in Hawaii that the certificate is authentic.

...

On Thursday, Bennett said he sent his request to Hawaii officials eight weeks ago but has yet to get the proof he was hoping for. He said he didn’t want another copy of the birth certificate. He wants Hawaii to give him what he described as “a verification in lieu of a certified copy of a birth certificate.”

In the weeks since then, Bennett said, Hawaii officials have forced him to provide proof that he is who he says he is. They asked him to send them copies of the Arizona laws that prove the secretary of state really is the person in charge of handling the ballots. Admittedly, Bennett said they told him they were “tired of all the requests.” But he is continuing anyway.

Those Hawaii officials... cheers guys/gals :D!

Is Bennett going to provide a suitable copy of his birth certificate to prove who he is?

This is a return volley for the Feds going after nutjob Sheriff Joe, the hero of racist ignorant Teabillies around the country.

The 70+ crowd who stood guard over the USA while it sunk from world dominance to mediocrity mostly because they were lazy and expected things to just come to them forever. The Father Coughlin Generation. They got to retire early with fat pensions, all the while sucking the life out of the companies they drove into the ground.
