Politico reports that the first Congressional bill requiring that presidential candidates provide their original birth certificates has been filed by Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL).
“Opponents of President Obama are raising the birth certificate issue as a means of questioning his eligibility to serve as president,” Posey said in a statement. “This bill, by simply requiring such documentation for future candidates for president, will remove this issue as a reason for questioning the legitimacy of a candidate elected as president.”
The bill has no co-sponsors yet. Last week Christianist site World Net Daily claimed that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts agreed to review their 330,000 name petition demanding that the court rule on Obama’s nationality.
