Birthers Sue for Candidate Checks

The birther movement has penetrated local politics. No longer just motivated by a desire to prove Barack Obama's supposed ineligibility for the role of president, California birthers now want Secretary of State Debra Bowen to verify the eligibility of every single candidate in the state before their names reach a ballot. The birthers don't seem to be loyal to any one party, however, as part of their lawsuit includes "questions concerning the eligibility" of Mitt Romney for the presidency.
