Colorado Department of State: “We Are Not the Entity Responsible for Determining Eligibility”


by Kathleen Gotto

Colorado was admitted to the Union under Pres. Ulysses S. Grant in 1876

(Jan. 5, 2012) — The following letter was sent to the below-captioned Colorado officials following emails to both offices regarding the filing of a ballot challenge against Barack Obama:

TO:     John Suthers, Colorado Attorney General
Benjamin Schler, Colorado Secretary of State


The Georgia Judge, Honorable Michael Malihi, has DENIED Obama’s Motion to Dismiss in the four lawsuits filed against him (see the pdf attached) on the grounds of his ineligibility to be on the 2012 ballot!

As you can see from the emails below, I contacted both the SoS and AG offices here in Colorado because of the constitutional ineligibility of aka Barack Hussein Obama to be a candidate in the 2012 election (he was also ineligible in 2008!).  BOTH your offices either totally ignored my email plea for help (AG Suthers), or blew it off as “not your responsibility” (Ben Schler, SoS).  Both the SoS and AG deprived the citizens of Colorado an honest and Constitutional election in 2008 and are obviously prepared to do the same thing in 2012.  How are Colorado’s Attorney General and Secretary of State not guilty of Misprision of Felony when both offices were informed of Obama’s ineligibility, but totally ignored the clear and present danger to our Constitution and our personal liberty?

Now, we finally have a judge in Georgia who has DENIED Obama’s motion to dismiss.  May God grant Judge Malihi the wisdom and courage to allow the truth to be told and the law to be upheld.  We need the truth to be exposed about the fraud squatting in our White House, the man who goes by the name of Barack Hussein Obama.  Obama lacks the requisite credentials to be a de jure president, and he undoubtably will be found guilty of many crimes he committed to pull off and sustain the deception.  It remains to be seen how many he will drag down with him.  All of those elected officials and government employees (state and federal) who were complicit in keeping this fraud hidden need to be exposed and face the wrath of the constituents they deserted!  Coloradans have been defrauded of our Constitutional right to have an honest election and both of your offices allowed that to happen!

We the people of all the states need to rise up against all of you who kept the truth hidden from your constituents and defrauded us of an eligible candidate in 2008 and 2012!  You are elected officials who swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution, but you failed to fulfill your oath.  You failed to protect the citizens of Colorado from a magnitude of fraud we have never before seen in this country.   Your nonfeasance allowed a usurper to steal an election, and systematically destroy our Constitution.  Pox on both your houses!

Dear Attorney General Suthers,

As you can see from my email below, which documented my contact with Colorado’s Secretary of State, I am a Coloradan deeply alarmed about the integrity of our electoral process.  As a registered “Nonaffiliated” voter, I have no Party interest; however, I am keenly aware of the Constitutional requirements to be eligible to hold the office of U.S. President.  One of those requirements is that one must be a “natural born citizen”.  Mr. Obama claims that Barack Obama, Sr. was his father and has admitted being born “subject to the British Crown” through his father, a citizen of the area we now call Kenya.   At the time of Obama’s birth, Kenya was under the protectorate of Great Britain; hence, the Obamas’ citizenship under the British Crown.  How can a person born subject to the British Crown be a “natural born American citizen”?  A natural born citizen is one who has two U.S. citizen parents, not just one.  And if that were not enough, there is mounting evidence of Barack Obama’s alleged fraud concerning his supposed Connecticut Social Security Number, Selective Service Registration, and several iterations of a birth certificate or certification of live birth, to name just a few of his questionable activities.

As I stated to Mr. Schler, and documented in my MFR below, I do not want to be disenfranchised and want only eligible candidates to be on the Colorado ballot for 2012.  If I cannot register my protest of a constitutionally ineligible 2012 candidate with the CO Secretary of State, I can only assume your office is where I need to register my protest.  If it is not your office, just where do Coloradans have to go to have our electoral rights upheld?

Thank you for your assistance in this very critical matter.  I await your reply.

Dear Mr. Schler,

Thank you for your return phone call yesterday and for the information you provided.  This MFR is to document our discussion as I elevate the issue of Barack Obama’s ineligibility to be on the 2012 (or 2008!) ballot for U.S. president.   In summation, my notes show that you stated Colorado’s Secretary of State has no statutory authority to verify the Constitutional or other eligibility of presidential candidates, and that the Democratic and Republican National Committees are the entities that have the responsibility to verify and certify a candidate’s eligibility to be on the ballot. The CO SOS merely accepts the statements of eligibility from the RNC and DNC on face value and determines sufficiency therefrom.

Additionally, you stated that any eligible Colorado elector could contest an election through Colorado’s District Court under the guidelines of Colorado Revised Statute 1-4-909.

Two questions come to mind:  (1) how can Colorado’s Secretary of State assure its citizens are not disenfranchised by political machinations by either one of the two parties with questionable certifications (of which there are manifold questions concerning Mr. Obama’s allegedly phony identification documents:  i.e., his birth certificate, Selective Service Registration, SSAN, et al); and (2) even if there is no “statutory authority” to verify the eligibility of presidential candidates, surely there is no prohibition to do so, especially when a state resident and eligible elector raises questions, which I have just done with your office.  It appears to me that the CO SOS has abrogated its responsibility to ensure Coloradans have unimpeded access to a fair and honest U.S. presidential election which only allows eligible candidates to run.

Mr. Barack Obama has just been found by the Social Security E-Verify System to be using a Social Security Number that is suspiciously fraudulent.  This new revelation, coupled with all the other investigations into Mr. Obama’s past, has just increased significantly the imminent danger to this country and the rule of law.

Also, to follow-up, here is information on the case I mentioned to you yesterday second article down.  You may find it of interest.

We are at a crossroads in this country and if the states do not uphold the rule of law or support and defend our Constitution, American citizens are in the highest danger. Every federal and state employee has the highest duty to its citizens and not to any partisan affiliation.  What will the CO SOS do about Mr. Obama’s serious, treacherous, and quite possibly treasonous identity fraud?

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please advise me on where I can find instructions on how to file and submit a formal complaint to Colorado’s SoS re: a presidential candidate not being constitutionally eligible to run for president.  Thank you.
