TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A California attorney has filed a lawsuit in Kansas challenging President Barack Obama's listing on the state's Nov. 6 election ballot.
Attorney Orly Taitz has promoted the discredited notion that Obama is not a U.S. citizen in other states. Her lawsuit in Shawnee County District Court also says she's representing a registered Kansas voter named Roger Walters but doesn't say where he lives.
Taitz filed her lawsuit Thursday, and a hearing is scheduled for Oct. 3.
The defendants in the lawsuit are the State Objections Board and Secretary of State Kris Kobach, its chairman.
Earlier this week, the board closed a review of whether Obama should be listed on the ballot after the president's birth-state of Hawaii authenticated information in an online copy of his birth certificate.
