Secretary of State Brian Kemp has put to bed – finally, we hope — the birther challenge to Democratic incumbent Barack Obama’s place on the March 6 presidential primary ballot. From the just-issued press release:
Secretary Kemp stated, “After careful consideration of Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi’s initial decision and all record evidence based on the criteria set forth in this process, I find that the Respondent, President Barack Obama, meets the State of Georgia’s eligibility requirements. President Barack Obama’s name shall remain on the Democratic Party’s 2012 Presidential Preference Primary ballot.”
It feels odd to congratulate Kemp for doing the sane and obvious thing, but there you go.
