Republican Representative Mike Ritze has introduced a bill requiring candidates who file for office in Oklahoma to show proof of citizenship.

The idea came about from the controversy around whether President-elect Barack Obama meets the U.S. Constitutions citizenship requirements.

He'll be sworn in either way. If it turns out that his not a citizen they'll modify our laws to make it fit.

It does make complete sense otherwise anyone from any Country could work their way up into the political system with false documents. I think the Obama thing is ridiculous though as even McCain was questioned about the same issue.

I also feel that it is a good bill. At the very least it will but to rest any citizenship issues before a race can begin. Helps spare us all from false claims and distractions from the real issues.
And no I don't think this was about Obama. I think the attacks against Obama and McCains citizenship opened some eyes .

I agree and think it is a good bill. I hope that they are able to make it law.
