Most states currently run by the GOP are states I wouldn’t be caught dead in, with Kansas and Arizona at the top of the list. Sometimes I think the most uninformed and extreme residents of those states have some sort of bet going to see which can out-crazy the other and how quickly can they do it.
But apparently, Kansas wasn’t paying attention when Arizona’s Secretary of State, Ken Bennett, decided to take on the issue of President Obama’s citizenship and demanded records from Hawaii to verify that the president was indeed a citizen. The entire incident blew up in Bennett’s face – badly – so you would think others would learn from the misstep and avoid the humiliation sure to follow.
But not in Kansas.
Enter Joe Montgomery, who filed a complaint with the Secretary of State’s office on Monday:
Montgomery, who works at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University, said Obama hadn’t provided valid documentary evidence to establish his birth in the United States.
In Montgomery’s written complaint, he declared “there is substantial evidence showing that much of Mr. Obama’s alleged birth certificates have been forged or doctored, and have not been confirmed as legally valid, true and accurate.”
“As for Mr. Obama’s citizenship, there are many doubts,” he said. “Doing the right thing can be hard and unpopular.”
Or stupid, conspiratorial and completely racist – take your pick.
