Birtherism Still Alive and Well in the Missouri Legislature

The Missouri legislature started pre-filing some of the legisation they're expected to consider come January 4, 2012.  If you're so inclined, you can head here for the House or here for the Senate for full lists of what's been filed so far.

If you take the time to mosey on through the list of what's been filed in the House, you'll find this gem, HB 1046, filed by Lyle Rowland of the 143rd district in Southwest Missouri.

HOUSE BILL NO. 1046
96TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Requires proof of identity and proof of United States citizenship for the office of President and Vice President to be submitted with the other required certification documents to the Secretary of State

Such certification shall provide verifiable evidence of identity and of proof of status as a natural born citizen of the United States for each nominee and the origins of such evidence. Such evidence shall be in the form of the most complete record of birth available by the controlling legal authority at the time of the nominee's birth.

It would seem that sheer insanity and birtherism is alive and well in the Missouri legislature.  No word yet on whether Speker-to-be Birther Tim Jones has endorsed this piece of legislation.

Update: It should be noted that last year's version of the Birther Bill was cosponsored by Shane Schoeller who is wants to be Missouri's next Secretary of Birthers State.
