Katy from Texas has e-mailed the following letter to Esperanza, "Hope" Andrade, the Texas Secretary of State:

Esperanza "Hope"Andrade Texas Secretary of State
Phone: (512) 463-5770
August 26, 2008

Reference: November 4, 2008 Presidential Ballot Eligibility

Secretary Andrade:

Congratulations upon your recent appointment as the 107th Texas Secretary of State. Best wishes are extended for great success in your governmental endeavors. Your attention is respectfully requested regarding a significant ballot qualification issue.

Article II, Section 2, Clause 2, and Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States, in relevant part declare:

Each state shall appoint, in such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a number of electors, equal to the whole number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.

No person except a natural born Citizen shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States

Further, legal requirements under relevant US Statutes as referenced without limitation, on the official US Citizenship and Immigration Services relating to Children Born Outside the U.S. Out of Wedlock, and the US Department of State, related to birth of a child abroad to U.S. citizen parent, respectively:

I hereby file a public, formal complaint with the Texas Secretary of State requesting verification of the natural-born U.S. citizenship, and other legal qualifications of Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II AKA Barry Soetoro, and rejection and/or revocation of the:

Presidential elector candidate nominations for the Democratic Party candidate for President of the United States, and

Texas Presidential Ballot name placement, registration and recognition of Mr. Obama’s candidacy for President of the United States if that citizenship is not verified as described below within 7 days of your receipt of this letter.

Should the above prayer be rejected, in whole or in part, I further pray that:

The name of the Democratic Party Vice Presidential Candidate or such other Democratic Party candidates for President, Vice President and/or Presidential Electors, as may lawfully be substituted, be entered into the appropriate Texas Presidential ballot positions.

Mr. Obama has not shown that he fulfills the Constitutional requirement for president, to be a “natural born citizen”, Article Two, Section 1.

The basis for this complaint is:

1. Mr. Obama’s failure and/or refusal to produce a physical certified, stamped copy of his birth certificate, with the Hawaii file number visible, upon repeated requests of myself and others.

2. Significant analysis of the electronically-displayed image displayed by Mr. Obama on his official campaign website indicates forgery and/or alteration of the certificate of live birth.

3. The electronically-displayed image displayed by Mr. Obama on his official campaign website has the Hawaii state birth certificate filing number blacked out, eliminating any objective information that links the image to an actual certificate on file (see

4. Such other irregularities, inaccuracies, contradictions, misrepresentations, errors, gaps, omissions, violations and/or alterations and the like, as may subsequently come to light.

If Mr. Obama produces a certified, stamped copy of the original birth certificate with all information visible, I request as the complainant to see that document in person to examine its authenticity, including electronically, before you finalize its response; and the opportunity to verify the authenticity with the issuing state official. This process should require no more than two business days, and may take place in at your office.

If the certificate is not produced in 10 days and verified by you and myself within another 5 days, this complaint requests that Mr. Obama’s registration as a presidential candidate be rejected by the State of Texas because he has failed to document his eligibility to hold the office of President.

I ask for expedited formal response and resolution of this request, given that the national convention furthering the candidacy is underway, and given that this document is easy to produce upon personal request of Mr. Obama to the Hawaii state government. Please note you can request it directly, as qualifying under Hawaii Revised Statutes §338-18 has having “a direct and tangible interest in the record.”

This request is made with the utmost respect for Texas laws, the presidential election process and the candidates involved, in the desire to resolve this question quickly and confirm their integrity. If a similar request is appropriate to be made to all presidential candidates it must not slow down this specific request.

If you decide that you do not have jurisdiction in this matter, please respond within three business days of receipt of this complaint with the state agency or other governmental organization that is responsible for enforcing Article Two, Section One of the Constitution that requires natural-born citizenship for candidacy for the president of the United States. Please include the basis for such jurisdiction by that agency or organization.

Please provide prompt notification, should a fee be required for this prayer. Should any irregularity be found in this request, please provide me with an opportunity to cure such defect in a timely fashion. I am a Texas citizen and registered voter and therefore an interested party in this matter.

All American citizens share an abiding regard for the election process. Your diligent efforts to safeguard the integrity of this vital process are appreciated
