CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A small group of New Hampshire lawmakers and others want the attorney general to investigate whether President Barack Obama deserves to be on the presidential primary ballot.

State Rep. Laurence Rappaport, a Colebook Republican, said they asked the attorney general Tuesday morning to investigate, but have gotten no response. Rappaport said the issue is whether Obama is a natural-born citizen whose parents both were American citizens. He said Obama’s father was Kenyan and not a citizen, so Obama is not and should not be on the ballot.

The state Ballot Law Commission rejected an effort in November to take Obama’s name off the ballot because of questions about his citizenship.

Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley said it is another example of how “crazy town” has taken over the Statehouse.
