Birthers Sue California Over Candidate Eligibility

Posted: Updated:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- People who believe President Barack Obama was born in Africa have filed a lawsuit demanding California's secretary of state verify the eligibility of presidential candidates before allowing them on the November ballot.

The suit was filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and others. Robinson was among those who claimed in 2009 Obama was ineligible to be president.

Obama has released a birth certificate showing he was born in Honolulu.
