A state board in New Hampshire has decided that Barack Obama’s name is good to go on the state’s 2012 presidential ballot because the application was filled out properly and the $1,000 fee was paid, according to an attorney who challenged his candidacy because of suspicions of fraud.
The determination came today from the state’s Ballot Law Commission, which heard arguments from attorney Orly Taitz, who had filed a complaint about Obama’s candidacy, a complaint that was joined by several state lawmakers.
A spokesman at the commission’s office today told WND that the members had “broken up” their meeting and left immediately, leaving no information about any decisions they made.
But Taitz told WND in a telephone interview that she was unable to get the board to remove Obama from the ballot, despite the evidence she submitted regarding alleged fraud – in connection with his birth certificate which could compromise his standing under the Constitution’s requirement that the president be a “natural born citizen.”
She also presented allegations and evidence concerning Obama’s use of a Social Security number from Connecticut, even though he has no links to the state while growing up. The use of such a number has been cited by critics as evidence of fraudulent activities.
