    Judge rejects Montco lawyer's bid to have Obama removed from ballot

    Philadelphia Daily News 215-854-2656
    A federal judge in Philadelphia last night threw out a complaint by a Montgomery County lawyer who claimed that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was not qualified to be president and that his name should be removed from the Nov. 4 ballot. Philip J. Berg alleged in a complaint filed in federal district court on Aug. 21 against Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission, that Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya.
    Berg claimed that the Democratic presidential standardbearer is not even an American citizen but a citizen of Indonesia and therefore ineligible to be president.
    He alleged that if Obama was permitted to run for president and subsequently found to be ineligible, he and other voters would be disenfranchised.
    U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick had denied Berg's request for a temporary restraining order on Aug. 22 but had not ruled on the merits of the suit until yesterday.
    Obama and the Democratic National Committee had asked Surrick to dismiss Berg's complaint in a court filing on Sept. 24.
    They said that Berg's claims were "ridiculous" and "patently false,"that Berg had "no standing" to challenge the qualifications of a candidate for president because he had not shown the requisite harm to himself.
    Surrick agreed.

    "Why that's a ridiculous claim!"

    The citizen had no standing....[beat][beat][beat][beat]
