Kansas keeps Obama on November ballot

Kansas officials agreed on Monday to keep President Barack Obama on the state's ballot for the November 6 elections.

The move comes after a challenge against Obama's birth certificate was dropped.

The Republican-controlled State Objections Board ended its probe into Obama's birth certificate, which has been a concern for those who doubt he was born in the United States.

Joe Montgomery, a Kansas resident who originally raised concerns about the document, had filed a claim alleging Obama as ineligible to serve as president as his father held dual citizenship in Kenya and Britain.

Montgomery withdrew his challenge on Friday because of "intimidation directed not only at me, but at people around me," he told a local newspaper.

Obama released his long-form birth certificate in April last year, which shows he was born in Hawaii, in a bid to end what he labelled as "silliness" over the authenticity of his birth certificate and the legitimacy of his presidency.

Incidentally, Obama’s mother and grandparents are from Kansas.
