Iowa Republicans Challenge Obama's Citizenship

The Iowa Republican Party is "intentionally questioning" President Obama's citizenship with wording in their platform document which calls for presidential candidates to "show proof of being a 'natural born citizen' of the United States," Radio Iowa reports.

Said Don Racheter, chairman of the Iowa GOP's platform committee: "There are many Republicans who feel that Barack Obama is not a 'natural born citizen' because his father was not an American when he was born and, therefore, feel that according to the Constitution he's not qualified to be president, should not have been allowed to be elected by the Electoral College or even nominated by the Democratic Party in 2008, so this is an election year. It's a shot at him."
