Obama Faces Court Case In President Bid

The US Main stream media won't touch it, but doubts over Obama's eligibility to run for President just won't go away. Now a US court has been asked to stop Obama's bid for president and nomination at this week's Democrat convention. 

The move comes as bloggers, from all shades of political opinion, are becoming increasingly frustrated that allegations over Obama are being ignored.

The action, reported widely by US bloggers, comes from Philadelphia attorney, Philip Berg, who has filed a lawsuit in the Pennsylvania District Court against Obama, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Federal Election Commission (FEC). 

Berg applied for an injunction preventing Obama from continuing his candidacy and a court order preventing the DNC from nominating him this week. The action claims Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President.

Berg, a Clinton supporter, is a former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery County, former member of the Democratic State Committee, and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania. 

According to Berg, he filed the lawsuit for the "health of the Democratic Party" and "to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated."

The action centres on claims reported by the Orange Party here, over Obama's citizenship and eligibility, raised by his Indonesian school record and an internet post of his Birth Certificate which has been claimed to be a fake. 

Meanwhile pressure is mounting on the FEC to investigate Obama, with more than 5000 signatures collected in an on-line petition, calling for his candidacy to be halted.

Moves for a temporary restraining order were denied by the Pennsylvanian judge Barclay Surrick, but the exhibits were taken into evidence. Judge Surrick decided to leave the case open, until the outcome of this week's Democrat nomination was known.

Yesterday, as "Obama Bin Biden" car bumper stickers appeared in the US, Obama and his newly selected running mate, silver-haired loser and windbag, Joe Biden, held a huge rally in Springfield, Illinios, for the benefit of the Obama faithful and the media, with our own cheerleaders from the BBC and Sunday Times

In a nutshell, nobody (not the DNC; not the press) nobody vetted Obama, and now the chickens are coming home to roost.
