Honorable
Julia
Jordan
Weller
Clerk Of The Court
Case
No.
1120465
IN
THE SUPREME COURT OF ALABAMAHUGH
MCINNISH,
et
al.,Appellants,v.
BETH
CHAPMAN, in her
capacity
as
Secretary
of
State,Appellee.
ON
APPEAL
FROM THE
CIRCUIT
COURT OF
MONTGOMERY
COUNTY,
ALABAMA
CV 2013-1053
AMICUS
BRIEF
OF THE ALABAMMA
REPUBLICAN
ASSEMBLY
Leave
to
file
this
amicus
brief
having
been
granted
by
this
honorable
court,
this
is the memorandum
brief
of the
Alabama
Republican
Assembly,
a
grassroots
movement
of
conservatives across
Alabama
and the
"conscience"
of the
Republican Party
("ARA") as
stated
by
President
Reagan.
ARA is
dedicated
to
taking
back
the Republican Party
for the
vast
and
disenfranchisedmajority
of
its
members:
Reagan
conservatives,
who
believe
in
small
government,
lower
taxes, free
market
capitalism,
a
strong
defense,
the
right
to
life,
and a
decent America.
 
ARA has an inherent and strong
interest
in insuring thelegitimacy of
each
candidate on the
Alabama
ballot,
the
more
so in the
case
of the country's chief executive
officer.
This
motion
is being
filed
under
Ala. R. App.P. 29, and as
such
it is
both
a request for leave to
file
the
amicus
and the
amicus
curiae
itself
which
would
be
filed
should leave be granted to do.ARA strongly believes that the decision of the
Montgomery
County
Circuit
Court
in
this
matter
is contrary
to
Alabama
law. ARA further believes that
erroneous
decision
will
deprive its
membership
and the
citizens
of
Alabama
with the
right
to
ensure
that candidates are UnitedStates
citizens
and
meet
the
qualifications
for
office
asset out by applicable law.ARA is appalled at the
thought
that simple andreasonable steps
cannot
be taken to insure the sanctityof the
ballot.
The Secretary of State, in her capacityof Chief Elections
Officer,
has the
power
and
responsibility
to
make
reasonable
inquiries into
the
qualifications
of the candidates for President of theUnited States, and should do so, especially in the
 
instant
case
where
she has in
hand
credible
evidence
that
something
is
amiss.
In
McInnish
v. Chapman the
appellants
are
merely
asking
that
the
court
require
Chapman to
secure from
the
candidates
a
bona
fide
birth
certificate.
There
is
scarcely
a
legal
citizen
in the
state
that
has not
been
required,
in the
simple
pursuit
of a
normal every-day
life,
to
produce
his
birth certificate
- to
start
school,
to
join
a Cub
Scout
troop,
to
qualify
for a
job.
If
ordered
by the
Court
to demand
birthcertificates
from
the
candidates,
the
Secretary'sexcuse
for
inaction
that
she "has no
investigative
staff"
cannot stand,
for
nothing deserving
of the
moniker
"investigation"
is
required.
All
that
is
needed
is
an
official
letter
to
each candidate
requiring
each
to
send
her a
birth
certificate,
one of
course which
is
genuine.
And in
response
to the
argument
that
no
funds
are
in the
budget
for
such
a
thing,
the
only
expensewould
be the
cost
of
mailing
the
letter.
ARA
joins
with
McInnish,
et
al.
in
asking
that
the
Court
grant
their
plea
for a
writ
of mandamus
directed
