Lawsuit filed to remove Obama from Mississippi ballot

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

California lawyer Orley Taitz has brought her national campaign to disqualify President Barack Obama in the November election to Mississippi. 

Monday, Taitz was in U.S. District Court in Jackson for a hearing before Judge Henry Wingate. 

Taitz claims Obama should be disqualified because his birth certificate is a fake, and he is using a fake Social Security Number.

The hearing included a teleconference with attorneys representing the Democratic Party, who filed a motion to dismiss the suit. 

Judge Wingate gave Taitz three weeks to serve President Obama, Representative Nancy Pelosi and three Hawaiian officials.

The judge will set a hearing at a later date and allow Taitz to serve President Obama with papers to get him to respond to the suit. 

Taitz has filed suits against the President in multiple states, but so far, no judge has heard her case.
