State Lawmaker Questions Obama's Citizenship

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Barack Obama begins his fifth week as president, but one Oklahoma lawmaker is questioning his qualifications.

Representative Mike Ritze (R-District 80) said he's thinking about joining several Tennessee lawmakers in an effort to force President Obama to prove his citizenship. 

"I have never seen a birth certificate that would pass the test of what I call a legal document," Representative Ritze said.

The Supreme Court declined to hear a similar lawsuit, last year. In June, the Obama campaign posted his Hawaiin certificate of live birth on a Web site to dispel rumors. 

Representative Ritze has sponsored legislation requiring all candidates in Oklahoma to provide copies of their birth certificates.
