Two items from Florida for you today. First, Jerry Collette has completed his “Plaintiff’s Supplemental Brief in Opposition to Motions to Dismiss” today in Collette v. Obama. Because we have so many documents, I’ll link rather than embed. Jerry cites the Florida rules that say “…it has been stated that the law “guarantees” every person a remedy when he or she has been wronged.” Be that as it may, Jerry’s problem has always been showing that he has been wronged. Hey, I think I have been “wronged” by birthers telling lies on my blog, but I don’t think I could convince a judge of it. He further argues that courts recognize “implied rights.” The problem is that Jerry doesn’t connect the dots that lead to his implied right. He says:
The federal eligibility requirements were clearly passed to protect the citizens who are not part of a usurpation from anyone taking office who does not meet them.
The problem is that no one is taking office. The Congress certified the 2008 election and that determination of eligibility is as firm as the Constitution itself. The main thrust of the suit is to keep anyone in Florida from being able to vote for Obama in 2012, but voting and taking office are two different things.
Anyway, much more in the document and you can read it in its full and uncommented upon state.
I have only had time to speed read Jerry’s document, and the following not at all yet.
New documents are available in the Voeltz case. The hearing transcript in Voeltz v. Obama is available now courtesy of the Jack Ryan project. Many of us have watched the video, but this will be a way to quickly refer back to exactly what was said. Also, we see a joint motion from the attorneys representing the Secretary of State and the Florida Election Canvassing commission, arguing that the “Second Amended Complaint” from Larry Klayman be struck. As you may recall, Judge Lewis requested proposed orders from both sides today. We have Mr. Klayman’s submission, and I will embed that 26-pager below.
