Keyes v Bowen: Explanation and links

February 24, 2009

Updated list of birth certificate posts

I have been asked many times over the last two weeks to clarify Keyes v Bowen. Here’s a quick rundown and there are links at the bottom.

Presidential candidate Alan Keyes, Wiley S Drake and Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party are suing Debra Bowen, California Secretary of State and the California Board of Electors to prevent the certification of the vote in the Electoral College. (Obviously it already happened.)

Similar to Gail Lightfoot v Bowen.

Lawyers for Keyes et al are Gary Kreep and Orly Taitz.

Basis of suit: Secretary of State Sandra Bowen was charged with the responsibility of proving barry was eligible to be president before she put his name on the ballot. The Board of Electors have the same responsibility before they certify the vote.

The basis of barry’s ineligibility: he is not a natural born citizen as required by the Constitution.

That either he was not born on American soil or he lost his citizenship while he was living in Indonesia from age 6-10. If he was adopted by his Indonesian father – he lost his American citizenship because there was no provision for dual citizenship.

Supporting this is barry’s claim of traveling to Pakistan at a time when Americans weren’t allowed.

Supporting the claim that he was not born in Hawaii is barry grandmother Sarah Obama’s claim that he was born in Kenya.

Also that he has never released his original long form birth certificate and the possibility that the Certification of Live Birth (COLB) is a forgery.

NOTE: The claim that he is not a natural born citizen by virtue of his dual citizenship – UK & US – at birth as conferred by his father was basically quashed by the Supreme Court via Donofrio and Wrotnowski.

Keyes sent out a subpoena to Occidental College in an attempt to obtain barry’s academic and housing records. If provided, they might provide his place of birth and what he considered his citizenship to be. Such as if he received financial aid as a foreign student.
