Donofrio v FactCheck – the Saga Continues

The only “desperate need” is the one that Mr. Donofrio himself is trying mightily to create!

Donofrio continues to pillory FactCheck in a new article: FactCheck capitulates.

In perhaps an allusion to this blog, Donofrio says:

Hearing from bloggers who do not have any legal authority to speak for him settles nothing. It simply causes confusion and that very confusion testifies to the desperate need for clarity and guidance by the President….

Of course Leo Donofrio is himself a blogger, and I think that his casting his legal theories on a largely naive public does more to cause confusion than anything else. The only “desperate need” is the one that Mr. Donofrio himself is trying mightily to create!

Because of Mr. Donofrio’s complaint, I have removed the phrase “former lawyer” from my earlier article. I had said that because on his own blog Mr. Donofrio had stated that he no longer practiced law (or at least that is how I remember it). I need to raise my own standards to stamp out my tendency to make the occasional snide remark. Of course, this is just a blog…

    “All they needed to check was Section 95(1) of the Kenyan Constitution:

    95. (1) Every person who, under this Constitution or an Act of Parliament, is a citizen of Kenya… shall, by virtue of that citizenship, have the status of a Commonwealth citizen.”

    Well that’s even clearer than the BNA 1981 – the commonwealeh citizenship depends on the Kenyan.

    By coincidence I’d just been looking at the Kenyan Constitution mainly to double check the age 23 point(it is true right back to the original 1963 version) but saw article 95 and was about to post to allay your doubts.
