Congressman Campbell — Please Produce Your Birth Certificate; Prove you meet the Legal Requirement to be a Congressman

The Constitution specifically lists the qualifications necessary to become a member of the House or Senate. A representative must be at least 25 years old, have been a U.S. citizen for seven years, and be a resident of the state (although not necessarily the district) from which he or she is chosen (Article 1, Section 2). A senator must be at least 30 years old, have been a citizen for nine years, and be a resident of his or her state (Article 1, Section 3).

(Campbell is second from the right; Citizen? As far as we know)

If Congressman Campbell wants to play to the wingnut birthers, let’s play. 

Congressman, please produce an original copy of your birth certificate to prove you are a U.S. Citizen.  Remember, a driver’s license, passport or a 1040 form just aren’t going to cut it.  We demand you produce the original document your parents got when you were born. Otherwise, its a fraud.  And even if you do produce it, maybe your doctors lied.  Or the local government official was bribed. 

Can’t produce it?  Resign.  You’re not eligible to be a Congressman.  Did anyone ever check your qualifications to make sure you met the legal requirements to be a Congressman? I’m guessing no.  Put up or shut up. Let’s see the goods.

    Great post Dan. I don’t know what Campbell was thinking—its what happens when you let the fringe of your party drive the agenda.

    My friends in Boston have been breaking my chops about Campbell for a couple of days. They want to know where that rest stop is for those “dollar tug jobs” Campbell is alledged to give per Jon Stewart….

    I am telling my friends to cut checks to Beth Krom for Congress instead.
