Looks like Alan Keyes and the Constitution Party has joined the ranks of people like Philip Berg by filing spurious and unsuccessful cases against President Obama. Alan Keyes is also trying to gain notoriety by filing a lawsuit questioning the Barack Obama birth certificate and the birthplace of President Obama. This type of case has already been taken to the US Supreme Court who summarily refused to have anything to do with it. It’s a shame that another alleged conservative has chosen the route of conspiracy theories instead of coming up real solutions to America’s problems. But since Alan Keyes is a supporter of lobbyists, the rich, and corporations that send our jobs overseas what can you expect ? Alan Keyes really does have nothing to offer so why not play smoke and mirrors and hope some nimrods keep sending you checks ? Keyes v. Lingle dismissed by the Hawaii Supreme Court as expected. Its time to stop playing politics and do something that brings our America together.
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF HAWAI‘I
CONSTITUTION PARTY; ALAN L. KEYES, Plaintiffs,
State of Hawai‘i; KEVIN B. CRONIN in his official capacity as
the Chief Election Officer for the State of Hawai‘i; JOHN
DOES 1-50; JANE DOES 1-50; DOE PARTNERSHIPS 1-50; DOE
CORPORATIONS 1-50; AND DOE ENTITIES 1-50, Defendants.
(By: Moon, C.J., Levinson, Nakayama, Acoba and Duffy, JJ.)
Upon consideration of the Complaint to Contest the 2008 Presidential Election submitted by Plaintiffs Constitution Party and Alan L. Keyes, the Motion to Dismiss submitted by Defendants Governor Linda L. Lingle and Chief Election Officer Kevin B. Cronin, it appears the Plaintiffs style the complaint as an election contest brought pursuant to Hawaii‘i Revised Statutes §§ 11-172 and 11-174.5, but allege, in pertinent part, that Defendant Cronin failed to require proof that candidate Barack Obama was qualified to be a candidate for President of the United States. Any challenge to the Chief Election Officer’s finding of eligibility of a presidential candidate in the State of Hawai‘i must be pursued in accordance with HRS § 11-113(e), not sections 11-172 and 11-174.5. Therefore,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss is granted and this case is dismissed.
DATED: Honolulu, Hawai‘i, December 5, 2008.
