Well look at this, The high court’s only African American, Clarence Thomas is trying to get the Supreme Court involved in the2008 presidential Election results after all.
According to the Afro Newspaper Justice Thomas has broken custom and forced the court to look at Obama citizenship case. In a highly unusual move, U.S. Associate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has asked his colleagues on the court to consider the request of an East Brunswick, N.J. attorney who has filed a lawsuit challenging President-elect Barack Obama’s status as a United States citizen.
Thomas’s action took place after Justice David Souter had rejected a petition known as an application for a stay of writ of certiorari that asked the court to prevent the meeting of the Electoral College on Dec. 15, which will certify Obama as the 44th president of the United States and its first African-American president.
The court has scheduled a Dec. 5 conference on the writ — just 10 days before the Electoral College meets.
AAPP says: The high court’s only African American is bringing the matter to his colleagues in an effort for the Supreme court to take the election away from Barack Obama by hook or crook.
The Chicago Tribune is following the case.
AAPP: Let's see if the Supreme Court works its devil pen, and devil magic and supports the stripping Barack Obama of the Presidency of the United States. With the 2000 election stolen, nothing would surprise me. Here is what the Chicago Tribune has to say:
The U.S. Supreme Court will consider Friday whether to take up a lawsuit challenging President-elect Barack Obama’s U.S. citizenship, a continuation of a New Jersey case embraced by some opponents of Obama’s election.
The meeting of justices will coincide with a vigil by the filer’s supporters in Washington on the steps of the nation’s highest court.
The suit originally sought to stay the election, and was filed on behalf of Leo Donofrio against New Jersey Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells. …
The Obama campaign has maintained that he was born in Hawaii, has an authentic birth certificate, and is a “natural-born” U.S. citizen. Hawaiian officials agree.
AAPP: This should be pretty some pretty interesting hot air from he supreme court.
