Why Does New York State Continue to Misstate the Citizenship Requirement for President?

“ERRONEOUS INFORMATION”

by Sharon Rondeau

(Jun. 30, 2019) — On Friday morning, P&E reader Robert Laity sent an email to the New York State Board of Elections (NYSBOE) and other a number of other parties to reiterate that one of the Board’s stated presidential eligibility requirements is inaccurate.

As he has beginning in 2008, Laity, a New York State resident and registered voter, again reminded the BOE that its stated presidential citizenship requirement, “born a citizen,” is not what appears in the U.S. Constitution.

Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution states, “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.”

Referring to two lawsuits he filed challenging the presidential eligibility of Barack Obama, former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Laity wrote in an email Friday morning:

In both Laity v NY & Obama and Laity v NY,Cruz,Rubio and Jindal both the NYBOE and NY State Supreme Court were notified that NY State is in NON-Compliance with the U.S. Constitution.

On the NYBOE official website, NY State continues to misrepresent the federal requirement to be President and Vice President as “born a citizen”. This is NOT the proper term of art. The proper term of art is “Natural Born Citizen” as the State of NY has been informed of several times now since 2008.

I must insist that the NY State BOE correct this erroneous information.

Furthermore, in advance of the 2020 Presidential elections I wish to inform you that Kamala Harris is NOT a “Natural Born [U.S.] Citizen.

As you were previously apprised. A natural born citizen of the U.S. is one born IN the U.S. to parents who are both U.S. Citizens themselves. See: Minor v Happersett, USSCt. (1874).

Laity then inserted a link to the NYSBOE’s posted requirements for various federal and state-level offices, beginning with that of the president, which continues to express the citizenship requirements as “born a citizen.”

In addition to the NYSBOE, Laity sent the email to the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division, the New York Daily News, the Enforcement Council of the BOE; and this writer.

In a follow-up statement to The Post & Email, Laity wrote, “I sent it to the NY State Board of Elections and the NY State Supreme Court Appellate Division by Email this morning. I checked the Board of Elections website and the misrepresentation ‘born a citizen’ is still there after I made them aware of the error over a decade ago. Since several ineligible candidates are attempting to become President without being eligible under Article II, I decided to get an early start in disputing their bona-fides for the 2020 election.  I am determined to stop any disqualified candidates from becoming another ‘Imposter in the Oval Office’.

Last August Laity offered a book titled “Imposters in the Oval Office” which is available through The Post & Email or directly at iuniverse.com.

    I just checked the Maryland State Board of Elections site:

    Qualifications for filing candidacy for President and/or Vice-President are: a) 35 years old or older and; b) Natural born Citizen and; c) 14 years a resident within the United States.

    Correction: The other 49 States.

    Robert, I do not know what the other 40 Boards of Elections cite on their websites. I know that Indiana had a faulty State Supreme Court decision (Ankeny v Governor of Indiana) about what a “Natural Born Citizen” is. There are probably other States that misstate the criteria, for political reasons. However, I have 4+ US Supreme Court decisions backing me up. I never was really deeply concerned with politics until this Obama fiasco started. NY State had the misstatement of Presidential election criteria a full ten years ago and they have still not corrected it. “Born a citizen” does not mean the same as “Natural Born Citizen”. The term “born a citizen” does not appear in Article II, Sec. 1 Clause 5. “Natural Born Citizen” does appear.

    Was there a time when NY was in compliance; and if so, when did it change?

    Is New York the only state where this occurs?

    Jeffrey, Thanks for the kind words and words of support. I am now composing a letter to Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York. I will provide a copy to Sharon after it is finished. The recalcitrant refusal of the State to conform with Federal criteria with regard to electing our President only serves to illustrate that the State of New York is not concerned with facilitating fair and lawful elections. Andrew’s father Mario would not be proud of him. I had respect for Mario Cuomo when he was Governor of NY. Andrew is another story altogether.

    Has any resident of NY attempted to bring this to the attention of Attorney General Barr and/or the Federal Election Commission since the requirement governs a federal elective office, not state, and thus the federal government has a say in the accuracy of this information being provided to residents of the state of NY?

    I grew up in Buffalo NY and lived just a few blocks from Robert Laity. We had a nice talk many months ago and I did purchase several of his book, IMPOSTERS IN THE OVAL OFFICE. I mailed some books to Legislators and gave the others out, they went to nice homes. I suggest others to get a few copies and get some of these book to your U.S. Congressmen and U.S. Senators (with cover letters and follow-up phone calls and etc..).

    Also, those who live in New York state I would request that you support Robert and assist him in contacting your state and local elected officials, the media, and as well as your U.S. Congressmen and U.S. Senators and the N Y Board of Elections what NBC means “Natural Born Citizen” as the standard and requirement to run for President and not “Citizen” (alone).

    Robert has been an aggressive “Point Man” and his efforts have been extensive. We are blessed to have him and again, those in New York “back him up” and contact your media,
    Board of Elections, and the reps. in DC.

    Laws are the jail cells of our minds, and whenever we willfully break-out of these mental cells, we risk residency inside the metal cells of prison.
