Two big peices of news have been released regarding Berg v. Obama, the case that is challenging Barack Obama's elligeibility to hold the office of President of the United States.
First, Phillip J. Berg, the attorney and Clinton supporter that brought the case, has issued a press release that states that Barack Obama and the DNC failed to respond to "Requests for Admissions" filed on September 15. By law, the defendants, Obama and the DNC, have 30 days to respond to the filing. Having failed to file a response or objection within that 30 day period results in the defendants automatically admitting to all allegations.
A complete list of the allegations that have now been admitted to can be found here. They include such items as: 1. I was born in Kenya., 7. The COLB [Certification of Live Birth] posted on the website “Fightthesmears.com” is a forgery., 10. I was not born in Hawaii., and 37. I am ineligible pursuant to the United States Constitution to serve as President and/or Vice President of the United States.
The second bit of news on the case comes from a filing by Barack Obama and the DNC to dismiss the case. Surprisingly, they site the reason for dismissal as "there is no federal cause of action for enforcement of Article II of the Constitution."
In essence, their argument is that because the constitution doesn't specifically state how to handle an ineligible candidate, they should just go ahead and let an ineligible candidate run for president. We're sure Gov. Schwarzenegger will be happy to hear that.
