The Washington Independent
Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.), who has introduced a bill that would require future presidential candidates to provide proof of U.S. citizenship, has collected four more co-sponsors — Reps. John R. Carter, John Culberson and Randy Neugebauer, all Republicans from Texas, and Rep. John Campbell (R-Calif.). Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) became the first co-sponsor last month.
Via WorldNetDaily's Andrea Shea King, who transcribes a stunning interview Posey gave her on her Internet radio show. Posey, who referred to the story as the "eligibility dilemma" and said King brought it to his attention, outright accused the president of hiding something: "The only people that I know who are afraid to take drug tests are the people who use drugs." He also admitted speaking with "high-ranking members of our judiciary committee" about the chances of Obama "being removed from office," but said there was "zero chance" of success there.
On how he got the co-sponsors:
I was talking to Neugebauer about it, and my good friend John Culberson was listening to the conversation and so Randy said, "Yeah, I told my staff I wanted to sign up on that already." And having heard the conversation, Culberson says, "Yeah, sign me up." And the judge (Carter) was sitting in the next row listening to the conversation and he said, "By God, sign me up!" So you know, we might start getting a little bit of steam here pretty soon. I didn't strong arm these people. I haven't begged anybody to sign on this thing, I haven't asked anybody, really. The people that come up and slap me on the back and say, "Good luck to you!" I say, "Hey, there's room for you on here!" And of course, they start doing the moonwalk, you know? "Oh no, no, no, congressman!" But you know, times change and time wounds all heels.(Remainder.)
