AND WHY DO THEY REFUSE TO CORRECT THE RECORD?
by Creg Maroney
(Oct. 13, 2011) — The following letter was sent to the New York State Board of Elections (NYSBOE) after many previous attempts to correct their statement that the constitutional requirement for president is “born a citizen” rather than “natural born Citizen.”

To: Communications Director John Conklin, The NYS Board of Elections and The Dutchess County Board of Elections,
I have written you repeatedly since 2009 seeking a response as to why you have not provided accurate information to voters on your website regarding the qualifications for candidates for the Presidency of the United States. To date, you have not provided any reasoned response.
I have also written repeatedly since February 2011 questions regarding elections that have gone unanswered by the New York state board of elections and the Dutchess county board of elections to date. I will once again submit my election questions to those in charge of transparent far elections in the state and county I reside.
[[ Section 1401 of Title 8 of the United States Code defines “[c]itizens” of the United States at birth. ]]
1) Are those citizens defined in Section 1401 of Title 8 United States Code eligible for the Ballot and will be placed on the Ballot in New York State to run for The Presidency and Vice President of The United States?
2) Are those citizens defined in Section 1401 of Title 8 United States Code eligible for the candidacy on any Ballot in New York State [[ EXCEPT ]] for The Presidential and Vice President?
3) Can a child of two Illegal Aliens that is born in New York State run for the Presidency of the United States and will be placed on the Presidential Ballot in New York State since that child is ” born a citizen ” as written by John Conklin on the NYS Board of Elections website, even though Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of The United States Constitution shows a distinct difference between a citizen and a natural born Citizen?
4) ARTICLE 2 SECTION 1 CLAUSE 5: ” No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;…”
Is it true only a natural born [C]itizen is eligible and will be allowed on the ballot in New York State if he/she is running for the office of the United States Presidency at the present time since all the “citizens” at the time of the adoption of the Constitution are not alive?
5) Is it true that one of The United States Constitutional requirements to run for the office of The United States Presidency is a “natural born [C]itizen” and not “born a [c]itizen”?
6) Is it true that in basic grammar a lower case [c] in “citizen” and a upper case [C] in natural born Citizen have two entirely different meanings? Being election “officials,” why is there that basic grammar difference in the 14th Amendment U.S. Constitution/8 USC Section 1401 [c]itizen and the natural born [C]itizen requirement for U.S. President in Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of The U.S. Constitution?
7) What is an Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 “natural born [C]itizen” and why did the founding fathers put that specific requirement in The United States Constitution for one to be eligible for the Presidency of The United States?
8) Is it true that an Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 U.S. Constitution ” natural born Citizen ” is NOT the same as a 14TH Amendment U.S. Constitution/8 USC Section 1401 ” citizen.?”
This is to formally request that you immediately amend your website to accurately reflect Constitutional law regarding the eligibility requirements for someone to be able to be elected as President of the United States.
Your website currently states that to be eligible to be elected President, one must be “born a citizen”. The Constitutional requirement actually is that:
“No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
Your website, therefore, is inaccurate and misleading. Because you have been informed of the Constitutional requirement, repeatedly, in the past, yet, you have not corrected the error, one can assume only that you intend to mislead the general public about this requirement.
This is official notification that you stand in violation of the Constitution of the United States of America, and potentially you stand in violation of various state and federal statutes regarding conspiracy, fraud, misrepresentation, and corruption, among others.
Therefore, to avoid further potential legal liability, you are strongly urged to take corrective action immediately to amend your website to accurately reflect Constitutional law.
I eagerly await your response.
