Barack Obama does not have the legal right to be President of the United States.
Such is the claim of Thomas Barchfeld, a Whitehall Borough resident from Glen Elm Drive and a member of the Whitehall Borough Republican Committee. And Barchfeld says that he has proof.
The 56-year-old former Democrat-he switched parties in 2011-has been going to the homes of registered Republicans in Whitehall (a Pittsburgh suburb) with a letter that he has written to Pennsylvania Secretary Carol Aichele claiming that Obama's natural-born citizenry is in serious question.
In fact, to Barchfeld, there is no doubt.
While Barchfeld does not directly question Obama's birthplace-the president was born in Hawaii in 1961-he instead focuses on Obama's parents. That's parents with an "s," and according to Barchfeld, that's extremely important.
