An unbylined March 30 WorldNetDaily article touts how failed lawyer Larry Klayman is appealing a birther lawsuit in Alabama to the state's supreme court, which is headed by right-wing favorite Roy Moore.
The gist of the lawsuit, according to the article, is to demand that Alabama's secretary of state "to verify that all candidates on the state’s 2012 ballot were eligible to serve." Never mind that, as Dr. Conspiracy points out, at least two states have for and received certifications of the facts of Obama’s birth from Hawaii, and there is no statutory requirement for the Alabama Secretary of State to verify eligibility of candidates.
In the middle of the article, WND sticks this in:
Get Judge Roy Moore’s classic book about his battle for liberty, “So Help Me God: The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and the Battle for Religious Freedom.”
The funny thing, though: When you click on the link, it takes you to a WND online store page that states, "This item is no longer available."
There's another reason that WND is excited about Moore's court getting this case:
Moore is on the record questioning Obama’s eligibility.
In an interview with WND in 2010, he defended Lt. Col Terrence Lakin’s demand that President Obama prove his eligibility as commander in chief as a condition of obeying deployment orders.
Moore said he had seen no convincing evidence that Obama is a natural-born citizen and much evidence that suggests he is not.
Moore said Lakin “not only has a right to follow his personal convictions under the Constitution, he has a duty.”
“And if the authority running the efforts of the war is not a citizen in violation of the Constitution, the order is unlawful,” he said.
Doesn't the fact that Moore is a birther mean that he must recuse himself from this case for having expressed an opinion on the underlying issue?
