A Mexican-born candidate for U.S. Senate said he is considering a
lawsuit against the Missouri
secretary of state for discrimination because her office
forced him to produce a birth certificate but "didn't make Obama show proof of citizenship" to appear on the ballot.
38, a self-described "Lincolnian Republican conservative," is seeking
the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Missouri. He was born one
of 10 children in Durango, Mexico. His father is a migrant field worker
who owns a small hog ranch in Perris, Calif.
the following July 5 interview with Karen Berka of Branson Radio Live posted on
YouTube, Maldonado explains why he thinks his rights were violated when
the secretary of state's office asked for proof of U.S. citizenship
when he filed to run for the Senate:
Maldonado, a U.S. Army combat veteran who served in Iraq and
Afghanistan, explains on his website that he became a U.S. citizen in
1995. But he said Secretary of State Robin Carnahan sent him a letter in
May asking him to produce documentation.
"It said, 'Hey, you
have to prove you're a citizen.' I ignored it," he said. "You know,
Obama ignored it, so I figured I could get away with it, too."
audience began laughing, applauding and cheering during his statement.
