Obama not eligible, California lawsuit, Dr. Alan Keyes, Ambassador, Dr. Wiley S. Drake, Sr, Markham Robinson, CA Secretary of State, Debra Bowen, Barack Obama, Senator Joe Biden, California Democratic Party Electors, PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE, November 12, 2008

A lawsuit was filed against CA Secretary of State, Debra Bowen, Barack Obama, Senator Joe Biden, and the California Democratic Party Electors
on November 12, 2008. Dr. Alan Keyes, Ambassador, Dr. Wiley S. Drake, Sr, and Markham Robinson initiated the Petition for Writ of Mandate in
Superior Court in Sacramento California. All California Electors are
listed as defendants.

The Petitioners are described as:

“INTRODUCTION
Parties
1. Ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes, Petitioner herein, is the Presidential candidate of the
American Independent Party, in the 2008 election, on the California State Ballot;
2. Dr. Wiley S. Drake, Sr., Petitioner herein, is a Certified California Elector of the
American Independent Party and is the Vice Presidential candidate of the American Independent Party, in
the 2008 election, on the California State Ballot;
3. Markham Robinson, Petitioner herein, is a Certified California Elector of the American
Independent Party, Vice Chairman of America’s Independent Party, and Chairman of the American
Independent Party;”

One thing is readily apparent in this petition. Alan Keyes unquestionably has standing.

Here is the main argument:

“65. There is a reasonable and common expectation by the voters that to qualify for the ballot, the individuals running for office must meet minimum qualifications as outlined in the federal and state Constitutions and statutes, and that compliance with those minimum qualifications has been confirmed by the officials overseeing the election process. Heretofore, only a signed statement from the candidate attesting to his or her meeting those qualifications was requested and received by SOS, with no verification demanded. This practice represents a much lower standard than that demanded of one when requesting a California driver’s license. Since SOS has, as its core, the mission of certifying and establishing the validity of the election process, this writ seeks a Court Order barring SOS from certifying
the California Electors until documentary proof that Senator Obama is a “natural born” citizen of the United States of America is received by her. This proof could include items such as his original birth certificate, showing the name of the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor, all of his passports with immigration stamps, and verification from the governments where the candidate has resided, verifying that he did not, and does not, hold citizenship of these countries, and any other
documents that certify an individual’s citizenship and/or qualification for office.”
