IN THE COMMONWEALTH COURT OF PENNSYL VANIA
In re: Barack Hussein Obama, II
Aka Barack Hussein Obama,
Aka Barack H. Obama
Objection of: Charles F. Kerchner, Jr.
and Dale A. Laudenslager
No.: 85 M.D. 2012
MOTION TO STRIKE AND DISMISS OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
Candidate President Barack Obama hereby moves to strike and dismiss the objection of
Charles F. Kerchner, Jr. and Dale A. Laudenslager on the following grounds:
1. Objectors lack standing to challenge the nomination petition because they were
not members of the Democratic Party as of (a) the time they verified their challenge petition or
(b) the deadline for filing of the nomination petition.
2. This Court lacks jurisdiction to consider a challenge to President Obama's
eligibility lmder the U.S. Constitution for the office of President of the United States. No
candidate' :; affidavit averring eligibility was filed, or required to be filed, under Section 910 of
the Election Code, 25 P.S. § 2870. Because no such affidavit was required or filed, this Court
lacks jurisdiction to consider a challenge to President Obama's eligibility.
3. The contention which is the sole basis for Objectors' Complaint - that, despite
being born in the United States, President Obama is not a "natural born citizen" eligible to be
President because his father was not a U.S. citizen - is legally meritless and has been uniformly
rejected.
In ~ : u p p o r t of this Motion, Candidate President Barack Obama relies on and incorporates
by reference the attached Memorandum of Law and exhibits thereto.

intended Commissioner Marks to be a statement of his opinion that an to a nomination of
a candidate for President may be filed on the basis of the candidate's it is
submitted that this such an would be erroneous and fail to account for (a) the exclusion of
candidates from the candidate's affidavit of Section 910, and (b) the jurisdictional
