Carl Seel's "Birther" Bill: Voter Protection or Conspiracy-Theory Nonsense?

Show me the birther certificate.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, state Representative Carl Seel, and others held a press conference yesterday at the capitol to pimp out Seel's House Bill 2480.

Seel's bill is the watered-down, penis-free version of last year's "birther" bill, which forces presidential candidates to sign a sworn affidavit that they're eligible in order to appear on the state's ballot.

The bill also allows any qualified elector to challenge the affidavits in court, and it comes with an emergency clause -- just to be sure someone could create yet another statewide embarrassment by November if the governor were to sign the thing.

The bill's not having any easy time getting through the Legislature, but a few people were concerned about getting it passed for "voter protection" purposes.

"Voter protection" doesn't explain why Arpaio was there along with "birther" squad lead investigator Mike Zullo and conspiracy nut Jerome Corsi, who are trying to push the "Cold Case Posse" investigation into President Obama.

Seel is so confident in his legislation that he declared it was "fitting and appropriate" to discuss his "birther" bill in the Senate chamber at the old capitol, as it's right across the hall from where legislators once debated giving women the right to vote.

"It couldn't be more American," Seel said of his bill.

This morning's question: is Carl Seel's HB 2480 -- which you can read here -- voter protection or nonsense?

Sheriff Joe should have vetted his Cold Case Posse before tying his faltering reputation to the tail of the failure of a human being Michael Zullo. Try looking up this guys past and all you'll find is a string of failures and exaggerations. If you really want to see him sweat try asking him about his past and how he makes his living. How does this guy have all this time to volunteer as a posse member with no visual means of support for his family. As far as we can tell he has never succeeded at anything but leaching on others fame and fortune.

Carl is just jealous because I won't do another recall on him after seeing the recall we're doing on his right wing extremist gal pal crazy Jan Brewer.
No deal Seel ! I won't do a recall on you because you would love the publicity  !

What Seel doesn't seem to grasp is that if Obama gets
challenged, then we (the Democrats) will challenge whichever
wingnut is on the Republican ticket.  Think about it, Carl.

Brewer will sign anything.

But if she locks up just tap her on the head until her eyes quit rolling in opposite directions, and
she starts moving again.
