Nomination of Barack Obama Challenged In Pennsylvania By Jim Schneller

By  

A petition filed in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania challenges the nomination of Barack Obama for President, in the state of Pennsylvania.

This is Schneller's second attempt to challenge the Obama nomination - the first was in 2008. He is running as an independent in the race for Pennsylvania's 7th congressional district, which covers parts of the Philadelphia suburbs, and most of Delaware County. Schneller announced his return to the ballot in December.

Schneller is not a lawyer, but he says he has a good understanding of the law. He has also sued his GOP opponent, Pat Meehan, the current incumbent.

The Obama challenge demands formation of a Committee consisting of the Governor of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Secretary of State, and the Pennsylvania Attorney General. This committee is provided for, in the Pennsylvania election code, "when a party or parties seeking nomination have shown intent to errantly control, establish, or overthrow the constitutional form of government." The Committee thus formed is directly authorized by law to refuse the nomination papers of such people or parties.

Schneller says he is convinced of the merit of his challenge. "When the executive establishes 30 czars, when the United Nations becomes sanctioned as world superpower, when the economy and schools become a tool to encourage love of the government instead of family-centered society, then we as a people are overdue for a calling of our representatives to task."

According to Schneller, the GOP has exhibited weak and ineffective resistance to the trends, of the Obama administration taking control, bypassing the congress and the constitution. He says this trend has escalated in the past 40 months.

Schneller says the reason the GOP has not challenged the White House or the Democrats, is that they are pursuing the same goals as their opponents. "We are led to believe that Washington is functioning - It Is Not !"

"When elected to Congress I will work efficiently and with popular support to bring government by the people back to our capitol. No amount of stagnation, complexity, nor doubt, in our current leadership, can convince me that we cannot turn the corner to resolution of the problems of corruption and domination."

The Schneller challenge suit seeks to set aside the Obama petition based on his lack of status as a natural born citizen. In the case of the Meehan petition, the suit argues the petition be set aside because election code statutes forbid code violators from holding office. The suit also requests a judgment that the 2006 amendment to the Pennsylvania election code, which waives the requirement for an oath of eligibility by candidates for president, is unconstitutional.
