Shreveport Lawmaker Still Planning On Filing “Birther Bill”
A Shreveport lawmaker still plans on going forward with his so called birther bill even though President Barack Obama has released his long form birth certificate to prove he was born in the United States. Shreveport Representative Alan Seabaugh authored the birther bill and he's glad the President put the question to rest. The bill would propose that if any Presidential candidate doesn't show his/her birth certificate, then his/her name would be left off a Louisiana ballot. Rep. Seabaugh says it's sad that we've had to come to this point but he still plans on moving forward with the bill. President Obama says there are much more important issues facing our country right now. Seabaugh says he did not file the bill so that the President would have to hold a press conference to prove his US Citizenship.
