In a sworn statement Nancy Pelosi, Chairman of the Democratic National Convention, certified the Barack Obama was eligible to be president. She said:
THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democratic Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution…
Also swearing was Alice Germond, Secretary of the DNC.
It is not known to me upon what basis this statement was made. These two affiants may have inspected specific documentation or relied on publicly known facts.
This is “old news” but I think that is important to note that that someone has taken responsibility for determining the eligibility of a candidate for President.
