Philip J Berg, attorney, filed a complaint in Federal Court in Philadelphia on August, 21, 2008. In the complaint against Obama, Mr. Berg states “Obama does not meet the qualifications to be President of the United States.” Philip Berg also states the following:
1. Is not a natural-born citizen; and/or
2. Lost his citizenship when he was adopted in Indonesia; and/or
3. Has dual loyalties because of his citizenship with Kenya and Indonesia.
Berg stated: “I filed this action at this time to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.””
The Philadelphia TimesHerald has an article about Philip J Berg and the lawsuit. Here are some exerpts:
To be eligible to serve as U.S. president, a person must be born in this country. According to Obama’s birth certificate, which his campaign posted on its Internet site in June to quell rumors that he is foreign born, the Illinois senator was born in Hawaii on Aug. 6, 1961.
On Thursday, Philip Berg filed a temporary restraining order in federal court to bar Obama from running for president, claiming the Democratic candidate was actually born in Africa.
“We really don’t believe he was born in Hawaii,” Berg said. “We think he was born in Kenya.”
The presidential candidate’s father, Barack Obama Sr., was born and raised in a small village in Kenya, according to Obama’s campaign Web site.
Berg’s suit claims the senator’s grandmother, brother and sister, who live in Kenya, believe they were present during Obama’s birth in the African country.”
