Larry Johnson Rumors Again: Obama May Not Be Eligible For the Presidency

, ,

Larry Johnson today has a new spin on the Obama Birth Certificate rumor: Obama is disqualified by an uncited, unlinked alleged 1952-1986 era Hawaiian state statute requiring both parents to be US citizens for their child to be a US citizen.

An internet friend (Katherine) has pursued this relentlessly. She sent me the following:

    According to the state laws in Hawaii that were in effect at the time of Obama’s birth, a child must be born to “TWO” U.S. Citizen parents (this law was in effect from “December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986,“ which means it applies to Barack’s birth.

But only Barack’s mom was a U.S. Citizen. Papa Obama was a citizen of Kenya. Well, the Hawaiian law stiplulates that:

    …If only one parent was a U.S. Citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least FIVE of which had to be after the age of 16.”

It appears that Obama’s mother was only 18 when Obama was born, which means she was shy of the 21 years of age required by the law. In other words, she was not old enough to qualify her son for automatic U.S. Citizenship.


Don’t blame Rush Limbaugh, and don’t blame rightwing bloggers like me, Obama Fight-the-Smears site and Bob Beckel. Larry Johnson is the source. I’m just reporting interesting or amusing campaign events, and Larry’s new rumor qualifies.

National citizenship is determined by federal law not state law. As usual, Johnson is an idiot.


I think you’re right on both points.
