Mexican-born, naturalized citizen of the U.S.A., U.S. Army veteran that served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Hector Maldonado is now running for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate Seat from Missouri.
But the Missouri Secretary of State demanded to see his birth certificate. Maldonado was surprised, but ceded to the request.
Maldonado said he asked Carnahan’s office if his citizenship documentation would be public record and available to anyone who wants a copy.
“They said, oh yes, absolutely, anyone that wants proof, we have it,” he explained. “I said, OK, can you do me a favor then? I’m sure Ms. Carnahan requested the same of Barack Obama when he petitioned to get on the Missouri ballot to become president.”
He added, “They had no response. They had nothing.”
