Alert: Cruz Article II Eligibility Attorney Lobbied With Hillary 
Clinton; Courts Use Standing To Dismiss Article II Eligibility Cases

The company we keep...

Yesterday at the NY Article II ineligibility hearing for Canadian-born Ted Cruz, his attorney, Grant Lally, argued that Cruz's Article II ineligibility shouldn't be dealt with until after the general election. He called primaries beauty contest.

Video/Excerpt via Times Union:

Grant Lally of Mineola — who ran for Congress against Democratic Rep. Steve Israel in 2014 — represented Cruz, and was accompanied by a constitutional scholar, though that particular arrow remained in the quiver. Lally called the deadline issue “a fatal defect. … They’re time-barred, and that’s it.” 
Lally also said that the necessary party in this case was neither Cruz nor the board but the Republican state committee, which is responsible for selecting delegates to the national convention; the primary, he argued, was in a sense nothing more than a “beauty contest” that tells the party how to apportion delegates. 
Lally suggested the more appropriate body to answer questions of eligibility was Congress or the electoral college — the state-based bodies that ratify the popular vote after the general election. 
Weinstein seemed dubious that waiting until the electoral college voted would be a good idea. 
There were additional arguments about whether Weinstein, as a state judge, had the power to rule on a federal issue as sweeping as the meaning of “natural born.” 
Weinstein said he expected to rule on the procedural issues by Monday morning. [...] Times Union.

Although Florida media reported that Senator Marco Rubio’s parents were not US citizens when he was born, national media has largely avoided the topic. Senator Ted Cruz’s status as a natural born Canadian and a number of related eligibility lawsuits were underreported nationally, until news hit that an IL judge was hearing one of the cases. 
Cruz’s lawsuits were filed in Florida, Vermont, Texas, Utah, Illinois, Arkansas, Alabama, New York, and Pennsylvania, and individuals who raised a ballot challenge in Indiana are weighing whether they’ll file suit. [...] Gateway Pundit.
