"Don’t suppress the Spirit, and don’t stifle those who have a word from the Master. On the other hand, don’t be gullible. Check out everything, and keep only what’s good. Throw out anything tainted with evil."

Ballot Initiative to Certify Candidate Eligibility Submitted in Colorado

Justin Riggs, blogger at yourfellowcitizen.com, has today submitted a ballot initiative proposal to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office. Mr. Riggs produced this in response to the various State responses he has received concerning an inability to track down exactly who is responsible for ensuring candidate eligibility.

To date, this is now the second such initiative that has been taken at the State level. The first initiative was reported here on October 31, 2008, by Pennsylvania State Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler County), proposing legislation that presidential candidates would be required to furnish evidence of their eligibility before being placed on the ballot.

Update: The Colorado Secretary of State’s office has contacted Justin Riggs and is preparing he and his associate with a Review and Comment Meeting.
