Goodlatte Supports Birth Certificate Requirement Bill
U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke, has signed on as a co-sponsor of a bill that would require presidential candidates to provide proof of their birthplace and, hence, satisfy a constitutional requirement to be able to run for the office.
Last year, questions came up about Republican candidate U.S. Sen. John McCain's eligibility under the Constitution to run for president because of his birth at a Naval air station in the former U.S. Canal Zone in Panama. McCain's parents were both American citizens.
The validity of President Obama's birth certificate also has been challenged in court.
