New Jersey Tea Partiers Falsely Claim Obama Attorney Admitted His Birth Certificate Was Forged
They just won’t go away, as two New Jersey Tea Partiers Nick Purpura (pictured) and Ted Moran tried, unsuccessfully, to prove that President Obama is ineligible to appear on the that state’s ballot.
Taking an audacious and shocking angle against the constitutional eligibility mandate, Obama’s lawyer, Alexandra Hill, admitted that the image of Obama’s birth certificate was a forgery and made the absurd claim that, therefore, it cannot be used as evidence to confirm his lack of natural born citizenship status. Therefore, she argued, it is “irrelevant to his placement on the ballot”.
But Snopes sniffs out the truth of these claims:
…at no time during the hearings did Alexandra Hill or any other lawyer representing Barack Obama “admit that the long-form birth certificate presented by the White House is a total forgery.” Hill merely agreed to a stipulation that the image of Obama’s birth certificate posted on the White House web site would not be used as evidence in the case, as his campaign had never presented it to the state or the court as proof of his eligibility in the first place (because there was no requirement for them to do so)”Click here for reuse options!
