At Kansas Birther Hearing, Board Allows Obama On Ballot
WASHINGTON -- In a meeting dominated by birther queen Orly Taitz, the Kansas Objections Board voted unanimously to accept President Barack Obama's citizenship and retain him on the state's presidential ballot.
The all-Republican board voted to accept a withdrawal of an objection to Obama's eligibility that was filed by Kansas State University employee Joseph Montgomery and accepted paperwork submitted by Obama's campaign attesting to the president's citizenship. Montgomery withdrew his objection on Friday, saying that he and his family had received threatening phone calls.
According to observers the board tried to conclude the meeting quickly, but Taitz interjected herself into the discussions, which Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the board's chairman, allowed.
