GARDNER BELIEVES HIS AUTHORITY TO ACT HAS LAPSED
by John Charlton
(Sept. 16, 2009) — New Hampshire Representative Laurence M. Rappaport confirmed for The Post & Email the latest developments concerning his request for an investigation of Barack Hussein Obama’s presence on the NH ballot in 2008.
Mr. Gardner called me yesterday afternoon. He told me that he cannot begin an official investigation because
a) he doesn’t have the staff to do anything large scale,
b) he believes his authority lapses after an election and
c) any formal investigation would have to be started by the New Hampshire Election Law Commission.
Mr. William Gardner (D) is the New Hampshire Secretary of State. The Post & Email has attempted to contact Gardner for a statement since publishing our first report on this issue, on Saturday. I asked him three questions:
1) I am specifically interested whether a) you have formally directed your office to undertake an investigation, and b) if you could explain to me what are the statutory requirements and process for Presidential candidates to obtain a place on the NH general ballot and be admitted thereto by your office.2) I also ask if you could give me a statement on what are the requirements for the office of president, according to Article II, Section 2, paragraph 5; and if you are familiar with the seven (7) Supreme Court Rulings which quote approvingly the definition given by Emmerich de Vattel (The Law of Nations) that a “natural born citizen” is; namely, as “one born in the country of parents who are citizens” thereof.3) Since Barack Obama II was a British subject at birth, in virtue of his father’s nationality, by what criteria did your office determine he was a natural born citizen?
Gardner’s office did not respond to The Post & Email’s request for more information.
Representative Rappaport (Coos District 1) has clarified for The Post & Email, that during his initial visit, Mr. Gardner affirmed that if his office could not take action, the request for an investigation would be forwarded to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office, which has investigated election fraud cases before (e.g. in 2006).
The new state Attorney General is Michael A. Delaney, who was sworn in on Aug. 24th, of this year, by Governor Lynch, following the resignation of the previous occupant. Delaney wasted no time getting to work filing his first action just two days later, in State v. Dr. Anton A. Heins, III.
NH Representative Rappaport says Delaney previously served in the State’s AG office and in the Governor’s personal council. Delaney hails from Manchester, NH, according to his office’s news release.
Rappaport in closing, responded to the many emails and phone calls which resulted from his interview by the Post & Email, and the wild charges being posted on the internet about his simple request, saying “… I’m not advocating for any position; I am most certainly not a racist, but I do think the American people have a right to know if our President was indeed eligible.”
Since The Post & Email covered this story, it has been picked up by a number of news agencies, and dozens of websites.
