… of someone who isn’t even Constitutionally required to be a “natural born citizen”…
Tongue firmly in cheek, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) on Tuesday afternoon called on reporters to demand to see the birth certificate of new Rep. Charles Djou (R-Hawaii). As Djou (pictured here) was being sworn into office, Frank walked the hallway of the Speaker’s Lobby off the House floor calling on the media to “do your job” and review Djou’s papers.
To be Constitutionally eligible to hold the office of Representative, Charles Djou has to be at least 25 years old and a citizen of the United States for at least the last 7 years. Not a “natural born citizen” since birth, but rather just a “citizen” for the last 7 years.
But thank you, Barney for demanding that the media “do [their] job” and review Djou’s papers. I would like nothing more than for Djou to produce his long-form birth certificate for the media to review, then ask the media to expect the same from Obama. A long-form birth certificate for Obama can’t qualify Obama as a natural born citizen, but it just might definitively disqualify him.
