You know I don't blame the state of Louisiana for doing this either as the Times Picayune of New Orleans reports. Is this payback for the way Obama treated Louisiana last summer? Obama handled the BP oilspill off their coast terribly and to top that, he shut the drilling down off their coast that provided thousands of jobs for Louisianans. These lawmakers are doing the right thing and I believe this bill will pass in their legislature. Louisiana depends on Oil and Gas revenue to survive and their constitution is written in a manner where they get a set percentage of the cost for a barrel of oil that goes into their general fund. That was put in place by then Governor Edwin Edwards. Governor Bobby Jindal, who also isn't a natural born citizen, should sign this into law because he had enough of Obama's stonewalling last summer on the spill. There is nothing wrong with taking extra precautions to make sure presidential candidates are Natural Born Citizens to meet the qualifications for Article 2 Section 1.
Presidential candidates would have to show birth certificates under Louisiana proposal | NOLA.com
A pair of Republican state lawmakers have filed legislation to require future presidential candidates to prove their U.S. citizenship by providing "an original or certified copy" of their birth certificate in order to qualify for the Louisiana ballot
The bill, co-sponsored by state Sen. A.G. Crowe, R-Slidell, would require candidates who want to appear on presidential primary or general election ballots to include an affidavit attesting to the candidate's citizenship that would be accompanied by a birth certificate "that includes the date and place of birth, the names of the hospital and the attending physician, and signatures of the witnesses in attendance."
