GOP Congressional Candidate: Obama Should Answer ‘Legitimacy’ Questions

Yesterday, birther lawyer Orly Taitz printed a letter from Gary Lima of Greenbrier, claiming that a Republican congressional candidate in Tennessee’s 6th District was on board with the idea that serving under President Obama was a violation of a soldier’s oath.

I have told MG Dave Evans here in Tennessee about you at the April 15th Tea Party in Springfield. He said he was proud to be on the “veteran terrorist” list. We laughed, but then were not laughing. I asked him what we are going to do about our oaths – where do we stand? He put it in his speech as he is running against Bart Gordon, and called on all the veterans in the crowd; we answered with a loud “hoah.” Then he loudly said, “remember your oaths”, his point well taken by all of us.

I called Evans, who is also chairman of the Bedford County Republican Party, to get his side of this. (The picture below, of Evans with former Sen. Fred Thompson, is from his campaign site.)

While he said that his comments on April 15 were political, not about President Obama’s citizenship—”we have a duty to make sure that our laws follow the Constitution”—he told me he had his own questions.

“Certainly I, as an American, would not hesitate to show a document proving that I am American-born,” said Evans. “That leaves a lot of people wondering, why is he not showing a legitimate document? Now that it’s an issue, I don’t see why it should be a secret. If you’re legitimate, let the judicial system handle it and show the world that you are, and let’s move on. Let’s get this resolved once and for all, whether he is or he isn’t.”

Evans had not seen Hawaii’s documentation of Obama’s birth. “A lot of what I’ve heard or read about that has either been on TV or on e-mail traffic,” said Evans. “Of course, you always need to validate what you see. There’s been comments about, well, his grandmother says he was born in Kenya, and she was there when he was born. A lot of confusing information has been put out. And I just think that for the sake of settling the issue and moving on to more pressing issues, that needs to be resolved. I know it’s being pursued through the judicial process, so just let it run its course.”

While Rep. Bart Gordon, the Democrat who represents the 6th District, has been handily re-elected since 1984, and while Evans has only raised around $10,000 for this race, the district went for the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008 by a landslide 62-37 margin.

“You know,” said Evans, “50-some years later, we’re still covering the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the mysteries around it. Why have a mystery here?”
