Hugh McInnish, a good friend of VDARE.com who has written for us on several different subjects, thinks we should be doing more about the issue of Obama's eligibility. I tend to resist for reasons I explained here. (Which doesn't mean that I completely rule out the possibility the Birthers will prove to have been on to something. If Obama had been born on Mars, I wouldn't trust the MSM to tell us).
Hugh (email him) has just sent us this account of the progress of litigation he is involved in, which does seem to have succeeded in raising questions about the validity of Obama's birth certificates:
I am one of the plaintiffs in the case of McInnish v. Chapman, the latter being Alabama’s Secretary of State Beth Chapman, who is responsible for election. The case is now making its way into the Alabama Supreme Court, and I want you to know about it.
Briefly, we are claiming that the Secretary of State has failed in her duty to verify the eligibility of the presidential candidates, especially in the case of one Barack Obama, and we are asking for a writ of mandamus directing her to demand from Obama a bona fide birth certificate.
Yes, I know the election is over, but the question is not moot. Compare Roe v. Wade in which the baby had long since been born, but the case was not moot because it was a matter of great public importance. Whether a man sitting in the Oval Office is an impostor is by any measure a question of great public importance.
We draw encouragement from a couple of things: First, in an earlier abortive thrust into the state Supreme Court, Justice Parker, in dismissing our case published this dicta:
McInnish has attached certain documentation to his mandamus petition, which, if presented to the appropriate forum as part of a proper evidentiary presentation, would raise serious questions about the authenticity of both the "short form" and the "long form" birth certificates of President Barack Hussein Obama that have been made public.
Second, Roy Moore is now the new Chief Justice, having been reelected in November.
This story is so far smothered by the MSM (no surprise here). But why the silence by the GOP who with a little courage could make it the most explosive issue of the century?
