(Jun. 18, 2021) — As promised, plaintiff Robert C. Laity has filed a petition for rehearing with the U.S. Supreme Court on his petition for a writ of certiorari concerning whether or not Kamala Harris is eligible to serve as vice president of the United States.
On June 1, 2021, the high court denied Laity’s petition without comment or dissent from any of its members. Prior to his appeal to the Supreme Court in April, Laity was told by lower courts that he lacked “standing” and/or that his objection to Harris’s presumed constitutional eligibility was “frivolous.”
In response, Laity wrote:
The evidence is overwhelming that Kamala Devi Harris is not the bona-fide Vice-President of the United States because she does not meet Article II and 12th Amendment criteria that she be a “Natural Born Citizen.” That this court suggested sua sponte that my appeal is ‘”frivolous” (that there is no serious purpose or value) in trying to ensure that our highest offices are not breached gives me great cause for concern.
As has been established in Laity’s current case and others he filed beginning in 2008 challenging the constitutional eligibility of presidential candidates Barack Hussein Obama, Bobby Jindal, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz, Laity believes that the Article II, Section 1, clause 5 requirement that the president and commander-in-chief be a “natural born Citizen” was intended to exclude anyone not born in the United States to U.S.-citizen parents.
On Friday morning, Laity sent The Post & Email the FedEx proof of delivery he received from the preparer, Cockle Legal Briefs, showing that 40 copies of the petition for rehearing were delivered to the Supreme Court building at 9:26 AM on June 17, 2021.
In the email, Laity included the note, “More info when I receive it.”
