Section 1: Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and Judicial Proceedings of every other State.

Section 2: The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.


Obama is eligible for the simple reason that Hawaii says he is eligible. The constitution requires that all states respect it.

And I bet you want AZ to count Barack and Michelle as "married" now, too? Farking liberal, always injecting your progressive Nazi views on marriage and forcing others to accept your godless "lifestyles".

Hawaii wasn't a state until the 50s and the Constitution was written a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away. Therefore, Sarah Palin is president.

It was "not appropriate" for the the state's chief elections official to make endorsements, Bennett reportedly said at the time.

"I am allowed like everyone else to have my personal opinions."



b..b..but, Obama said his position was evolving!

I'm sure it's just a funny little coincidence...

Have all these assholes' brains been cooked to charcoal in that state?

Also, "personal opinions" are slightly different than co-chairing an election committee, teatard.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: If this was happening in another country we'd be airdropping Jimmy Carter's peanut-fueled robot shock troops to monitor their elections and nodding smugly to ourselves about how we're just better.


Exactly. When we had the brooks brothers riot in FL with the 2000 election I couldn't believe that the person in charge of overseeing the election was one of the candidates campaign organizers. Between that and all the shenanigans with the ballots and process it was clear that we had the same election issues as some South American and African nations.

gingerjet: Its common practice for elected officials to be chairs of some campaign and leader of the party


I realize corrupt Bushcronies like Katherine Harris and Ken Blackwell paved the way for this, but let me state that for the record that IT IS NEITHER COMMON NOR ETHICAL FOR THE PERSON WHO OVERSEES THE ELECTION TO ALSO BE IN CHARGE OF GETTING A PARTICULAR CANDIDATE ELECTED. Furthermore, the fact that someone apparently has to state this even though Bennett himself openly admitted this in his 2010 campaign pledge means someone needs an internet biatchslap. Some watchdog group in AZ needs to file a lawsuit pronto in hopes of correcting this.

Does anyone in Arizona have standing to file a lawsuit along those lines?

As much as Fark likes to think AZ residents support this action, we don't.

From what I can tell on newscasts and newspapers, people are fed up with this shiat. The only people asking for verification are over 60 and even then their "protests" are sit down town halls with half the attendees looking sleepy or passed out. Are people fed up enough to vote the GOP out? Probably not, but your regular AZ resident is starting to see we are on national news frequently and not for good reasons.

The sec of state was interviewed last night by our local FOX affiliate and even they were skeptical of his claims.

How this plays out is already written - the SOS will back down and we won't hear about this again.

When corporations can spend unlimited money via superpacs, I don't the whole conflict of interest issues apply to elections anymore.

Then it doesn't matter, does it? The GOP will suffer no electoral consequences for their actions and has no incentive to act differently.

Obama claims he was born in Kenya so it seems pretty obvious that the birth certificate must be a forgery.

This has been happening for years, and it's bullshiat, but it's not going to change. There was Katherine Harris in Florida in 2000 for Bush, Ken Blackwell in Ohio for Steve Forbes in 2000, Bush in 2004, now this guy Ken Bennett in Arizona. It's unethical as hell, but what else is new for Republicans?

Side note: while looking up names, I discovered that Rick Santorum's campaign chair in Arkansas is Josh Duggar - of THE Duggars. Yeah.

Here's a related story detailing Hawaii's communications with Crazy Eyes on the whole BC thing. I like how they ask for clarification that he is asking for this level of vetting for ALL of the candidates, and he ignores the question like it was never asked.

Then you're saying the sec of state shouldn't be affiliated with a political party because the only time it's not a conflict of interest is when the election is certified in favor of someone of the opposition party, I hope that helps you to understand how stupid you are.

Satanic_Hamster: Sock Ruh Tease: This guy is trying to get his campaign's opponent off the ballot by holding two conflicting jobs. But don't worry citizen, the Republicans love democracy. Now pay your poll tax to the DMV and vote for the only candidate on the ballot, Mitt Romney.

Holding two conflicting jobs? Explain or link please.


Secretary of State and Co-Chair of the Romney campaign. These are listed in the linked story, and the reason that they conflict is that he is trying to block Obama from the ballot, has already seen more documentation than he has for Romney, and is demanding more, while not requiring anything from Romney.

It's like the Secretary of State for Florida calling a halt to recounts while handing her state's votes to the candidate whom she was the state's campaign director for.
