Eligibility Challenge of U.S.

Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz representing Texas

In May of 2014, Texas voters became aware of the fact that Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz was born
a legal citizen of Canada on December 22, 1970 and had remained a legal citizen of Canada until
officially applying to Canada to renounce his foreign citizenship on May 14, 2014, as evidenced below
with both his official Canadian Birth Certificate and Canadian Citizenship renunciation application.

During his campaign for President of the United States, Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz was
repeatedly asked to make public any United States Citizenship documents that would prove he was a
“dual citizen” of both Canada and the United States at birth. As of this challenge, Senator Rafael Edward
(Ted) Cruz has offered no such proof.

Instead, Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz commissioned an opinion letter from friends at Harvard
University Law, which stated that in their opinion, regardless of no U.S. citizenship documentation,
Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz was indeed a legal citizen of both Canada and the United States at
birth under the U.S. 14th Amendment and U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Statutes regarding the
children of U.S. Citizens born abroad. If true, there will be U.S. Birth Records to evidence the claim.

Texas and U.S. Election Laws prohibit foreign citizens from seeking governmental offices. In 2012,
Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz signed an application to appear on a Texas ballot seeking the office of
U.S. Senator from Texas. On that application, Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz swore under oath that
he was a legal U.S. Citizen eligible for the office he was seeking. He would not have appeared on the
Texas ballot otherwise. The Republican Party of Texas also certified his claim without any supporting
evidence to the claim of eligibility.

Under Texas TITLE 9. CANDIDATES - CHAPTER 145. WITHDRAWAL, DEATH AND INELIGIBILITY OF
CANDIDATE -SUBCHAPTER A. GENERAL PROVISIONS - Texas Election Laws hold the following people
legally responsible for properly vetting, certifying and placing an eligible candidate on the Texas ballot.

• The Candidate himself, under penalty of perjury and fraud
• The Republican Party of Texas, under penalty of fraud and collusion
• The Texas Election Commission, under penalty of fraud and failure to comply with or enforce
Texas Election Laws
• The Secretary of State, the chief elections official in the state of Texas
• The Texas Canvassing Authority for failure to comply with or enforce Texas Law

Due to improper vetting and fraudulent certification of Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz by the
responsible parties listed above in 2012, Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz was fraudulently elected to
and seated in the U.S. Senate in 2012, as a legal citizen of Canada at that time. Further, Senator Rafael
Edward (Ted) Cruz failed to at any time prior to the 2012 election, disclose the fact that he remained a
legal citizen of Canada until renouncing his Canadian citizenship on May 14, 2014.

As a result, Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz serves in the U.S. Senate fraudulently under the color of
law only, the appearance of an act being performed based upon legal right or enforcement of statute,
when in reality no such legal right exists.
At a time in U.S. history when the American voter has almost entirely lost faith and confidence in the
election system, threatening the very foundations of our Constitutional Republican form of government,
it is critical that events like this are not allowed to stand. Individuals and officials responsible for
preventing such events must be held fully accountable under the law for failing to keep their oaths or
perform their critical duty to assure free, fair, transparent and legal elections.

Based upon the evidence presented here and existing Texas Election Laws, the voters of Texas hereby
challenge the legal eligibility of Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz to appear on a Texas ballot for
reelection to the U.S. Senate in 2018 and demand that Senator Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz withdraw from
the race unless and until he can provide authenticated U.S. documentation of legal “dual citizenship” at
his birth in 1970 - and further that all parties involved in the defrauding of Texas voters and campaign
donors in 2012, be held fully accountable for their illegal actions in 2012.

Signed: Republican Voters and Campaign Donors of Texas
