Justices Won’t Review Obama’s Eligibility to Serve
The Supreme Court has turned down another challenge to Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as president because of his citizenship. The appeal by Cort Wrotnowski of Greenwich, Conn., was denied Monday without comment. Wrotnowski argued that Obama was a British subject at birth and therefore cannot meet the requirement for becoming president. He wanted the high court to halt presidential electors from meeting to formally elect Obama as president. Echoing an appeal that was rejected by justices last week, Wrotnowski said that since Obama had dual nationality at birth – his mother was American, his Kenyan father was a British subject – he cannot possibly be a “natural born citizen.” At least two other appeals over Obama’s citizenship remain at the court. Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pa., argues that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii as Obama says and Hawaii officials have confirmed.
