Birther bill dies in committee

Posted By on Wed, Mar 30, 2011 at 10:27 AM

Tea Party Rep. Jon Hubbard couldn't draw a motion for a "do pass" in committee this morning for his bill to require candidates for president and vice president to prove they are qualified to seek office — born in the U.S. of A., in other words.

The paranoia caucus also failed in the Senate today to win approval of Republican Rep. Bryan King's bill to require photo ID for voters. (How did King miss introducing a bill to allow — nay, require — concealed weapons at polling places.)
