Supreme Court: Authenticity of Obama's birth certificate "cause for concern"

MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA: In a turn of events that shocked many in the legal and political fields, Alabama State Supreme Court Justice Tom Parker sided with Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio in his findings that the birth certificate presented by Barack Obama may, in fact, be a fraud.

Justice Parker's took the unusual step of issuing a public concurrence regarding the evidence submitted before the court, much of which included the findings of an investigation conducted by Sheriff Arpaio, suggesting that president Obama was not born in the United States. The findings in the report went on to state that there was clear and convincing evidence that the birth certificate released by the commander-in-chief may not be authentic.

The findings of Arpaio's well publicized investigation were brought forth as a result of a petition filed before the Alabama Supreme Court by activist Hugh McInnish to force president Obama to present an original, state issued certificate of live birth before being listed on the state's presidential ballot. Despite Indonesian school records indicating otherwise, Barack Obama claims to have been born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961.

Although the court denied the petition on the grounds that Obama is already a sitting president, Justice Parker made it clear that the question of Obama's citizenship was a legitimate cause for concern.

In his statement, Justice Parker stated "Mclnnish has attached certain documentation to his mandamus petition, which, if presented to the appropriate forum as part of a proper evidentiary presentation, would raise serious questions about the authenticity of both the ‘short form’ and the ‘long form’ birth certificates of President Barack Hussein Obama that have been made public.”

McInnus, who presents himself as "a person educated and experienced in computer science,” filed the motion after thoroughly examining the long form birth certificate in question and cited the findings of Arpaio in support of his case.

Although Justice Parker found the evidence put forth by McInnus to be convincing, he went on to say that his hands were tied. “The Alabama Constitution implies that this court is without jurisdiction over McInnish’s original petition,” Parker explains. “The office of the secretary of state of Alabama is not a ‘court of inferior jurisdiction’ that this court may control through the issuance of a writ in response to a petition.”

So far, no response has been issued by the White House on the justice's ruling.
