Judges across the country are weighing in on the the question of Presidential eligibility in the wake of a bevy of birther challenges to the 2012 candidates.
In Virginia, Charles Tisdale filed such a challenge in federal court against not only Barack Obama, but also Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. The results were embarrassing for the birthers, as Judge John A. Gibney, Jr., United States District Judge for the Eastern District for Virginia wrote, dismissing the case that alleged the candidates were ineligible because of their parents’ citizenship:
It is well settled that those born in the United States are considered natural born citizens.
The judicial comments are piling up (with similar decisions in Illinois and Georgia) and they are not friendly to the likes of Donofrio, Taitz, Hatfield, Irion and Apuzzo.
