Birthers file CA lawsuit, question Romney's citizenship
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KABC) -- So-called birthers have filed a lawsuit demanding the California secretary of state verify the eligibility of this year's presidential candidates.
Voters who do not believe President Obama is a U.S. citizen and some third party write-in candidates filed the suit. They want verification to take place before the November election.
The lawsuit also raises questions about Mitt Romney's birth place because his father was born in Mexico to U.S. citizens, which automatically made him an American citizen.
Mitt Romney was born in Michigan.
