According to the Juneau Empire web site, the racist challenge by 70-year-old retired bus driver Gordon Epperly to Barack Obama’s candidacy was rejected by Alaska State Elections Director Gail Fenumiai last week. Epperly claimed that because President Obama was a “mulatto” he was not a natural born citizen.
Director Fenumiai informed Epperly that Alaska Democrats don’t hold primaries and that nothing in Alaska law allows the state to interfere with the selection of presidential candidates.
“Our understanding is that the claims regarding President Obama’s lack of eligibility for the presidency are false and that no court has found any merit in them,” she said.
That’s gotta sting, since Epperly believes that women cannot hold elected office in the United States.
Mr. Epperly’s position on the eligibility of octoroons was not immediately apparent.
