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.Â
Congressman, please produce an original copy of your birth certificate to prove you are a U.S. Citizen.Â Remember, a driver’s license, passport or a 1040 form just aren’t going to cut it.Â We demand you produce the original document your parents got when you were born. Otherwise, its a fraud.Â And even if you do produce it, maybe your doctors lied.Â Or the local government official was bribed.Â
Can’t produce it?Â Resign.Â You’re not eligible to be a Congressman.Â Did anyone ever check your qualifications to make sure you met the legal requirements to be a Congressman? I’m guessing no.Â Put up or shut up. Let’s see the goods.
