On October 27, 2008, plaintiff-appellant, Leo Donofrio, a retired
attorney acting Pro Se, sued Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary of State of
the State of New Jersey, in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate
Division, demanding the Secretary execute her statutory and
Constitutional duties to police the security of ballots in New Jersey
from fraudulent candidates ineligible to hold the office of President of
the United States due to their not being "natural born citizens" as
enumerated in Article 1, Section 2, of the US Constitution.
Unlike other law suits filed against the candidates, Berg etc., this
action was the only bi-partisan suit, which sought to have both McCain
and Obama removed for the same reason. (Later, Plaintiff also sought the
removal of Nicaraguan born Roger Colera, the Presidential candidate for
the Socialist Workers Party). The Berg suit will almost certainly fail
on the grounds of "standing", but Donofrio v. Wells, having come
directly from NJ state courts, will require the SCOTUS to apply New
Jersey law, and New Jersey has a liberal history of according standing
to citizens seeking judicial review of State activity.
While raising it as an ancillary issue, Plaintiff in this case didn't
rely upon questioning Obama‘s birth certificate as the core
Constitutional dilemma. Rather, he alleges that even if Obama was born
in Hawaii, he was born to a Kenyan national father and is therefore not
eligible to be President due to having dual loyalties at birth and split
jurisdiction at the time of his birth.
|On Friday Nov. 14, 2008, Leo C. Donofrio sent, by US Postal Express
Mail, a letter, as required by
Supreme Court Rule 22.4, to the Clerk of the United States Supreme
Court -- William K. Suter -- requesting his
Emergency Stay Application as to the national election by renewed to
the Honorable Associate Justice Clarence Thomas by right of law,
Supreme Court Rule 22.4.
As of 1:17 PM the renewed application has not been updated to the
US Supreme Court automated Docket.
Supreme Court Rule 22.1, the Clerk is demanded to "transmit it
promptly" to the Justice it is addressed to. Please recall that on Nov.
3rd, Donofrio originally submitted this same emergency stay application
to the US Supreme Court. Despite the stay, the Clerk -- Mr. Danny
Bickell -- made assurance that the application would be given to the
Honorable Associate Justice David Souter that night, it was not
transmitted promptly. In fact, it was not transmitted at all
after Mr. Bickell, having made an illegal and improper substantive
judgment of law, thereby denied the application on his own volition.
The emergency stay application was eventually submitted to the Honorable
Associate Justice David Souter, four days late, on November 6,
after Mr. Bickell was forced to concede that his denial had been
The emergency stay application, having been brought to the US Supreme
Court from a denial of the New Jersey Supreme Court, was required by
Rule 22.3 to be submitted to Justice Souter as he is the Justice
assigned to the Third Circuit which includes New Jersey. The
application was denied by Justice Souter on Nov. 6, and such denial
therefore triggered the
under Rule 22.4 to renew the emergency stay application to "any
other Justice." The application to renew has now been sent to the
Honorable Associate Justice Clarence Thomas.
Hopefully, this time, the emergency stay application will be
promptly transmitted to the Honorable Associate Justice Clarence
The renewed application was delivered to the US Supreme Court Clerk's
office at exactly
7:46 AM by US Postal Express Mail. (Click link for US Postal proof

Update: Donofrio's case is
now on the docket for Justice Clarence Thomas.
The Game's Afoot, Watson!
|On December 5, 2008, only ten days before the electoral college votes,
the nine Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court will meet in private to
review Obama's citizenship status.
Leo Donofrio's case, "Leo C. Donofrio, v. Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary
of State of the State of New Jersey, United States Supreme Court
08A407," regarding Obama's citizenship has reached a new level.
The case has been "distributed for conference."
This docketing today by the court should send ripples of fear through
the Obama camp. Obama has been proceeding at lightening speed to
put together a cabinet and take possession of the White House with the
hope that he won't have to answer the question of whether or not he was
"at birth" a "natural born citizen."
Every major news network, print and cable news like FOX, CNN and MSNBC,
have ignored all the court cases challenging Obama's eligibility as sore
losers or conspiracy theories. It might be in their best interest
at this point to report this critically important meeting to take place
on December 5, 2008, or lose what little credibility they have left.
If four of the nine Justices vote to hear the case in full review, oral
argument may be ordered. The conference is scheduled for December 5,
2008, ten days before the meeting of the Electoral College…
The case originally sought, pre-election, to have the names of Barack
Obama, John McCain, and Roger Calero removed from New Jersey ballots,
and for a stay of the "national election" pending Supreme Court review
of whether those candidates were eligible under the Constitution as
natural born Citizens, as is required by Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5
of the Constitution of the United States.
Leo Donofrio brought his case from a lower New Jersey court to the NJ
Supreme Court -- was denied -- and then he filed an emergency stay
application in the United States Supreme Court on Nov. 3, 2008, before
the Honorable Associate Justice David Souter. Justice Souter
denied the emergency stay application on Nov. 6.
Leo Donofrio renewed the application, as per Supreme Court Rule 22.4, to
the Honorable Associate Justice Clarence Thomas by way of Express mail
on Nov. 14. The application arrived at the Supreme Court on Nov.
17 and was submitted directly to Justice Thomas.
On Nov. 19, the case was docketed for full conference of all nine
Justices and scheduled for December 5, 2008. It is not known at
this time the exact details of how the case came to be "DISTRIBUTED for
Background on "The Justices Conference" is discussed as follows by the
Supreme Court Historical Society:
"No outsider enters the room during conference. The junior
Associate Justice acts as "doorkeeper," sending for reference material,
for instance, and receiving it at the door...
Five minutes before conference time, 9:30 or 10 a.m., the Justices are
summoned. They exchange ritual handshakes and settle down at the
long table. The Chief sits at the east end; the other Justices sit
at places they have chosen in order of their seniority…
The Chief Justice opens the discussion, summarizing each case. The
senior Associate Justice speaks next, and comment passes down the line.
To be accepted for review, a case needs only four votes, fewer than the
majority required for a decision on the case itself. Counsel for
the litigants are directed to submit their printed briefs so that each
Justice has a set several weeks before argument.

Today, November 22, 2008, Leo C. Donofrio filed, with the New Jersey
Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct, an official
allegation of Judicial Misconduct against Appellate Division Judge Jack
M. Sabatino with regard to the initial stage of this litigation which
was originally filed in the NJ Superior Court, Appellate Division.
The case, having come directly from an appeal to the New Jersey Supreme
Court is now before the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS),
"DISTRIBUTED for Conference of December 5, 2008" before all nine Supreme
He is very concerned that if the United States Supreme Court requests
the official records of the case from the NJ Appellate Division, a
fraudulent case file -- not including all relevant documents -- will be
forwarded to the SCOTUS and thereby the case now pending might be
jeopardized, as he speculated that there was a chance that the US
Supreme Court might ask the Appellate Division what records they have.
Donofrio forwarded official allegations of obstruction of
justice against Supreme Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division
Jack M. Sabatino. In the Appellate Division he is alleging
that Judge Sabatino purposely tried, through improper ex parte
communications, through his law clerk, to instruct him how to file an

|Changing The Rules
|Leo Donofrio, one of the top three experts on eligibility law, has
a ton of interesting stuff on
his blog, here's an example:
The Obama administration quietly
changed the language in The Foreign Affairs Manual in August 2009 to expand the holding
of Wong Kim Ark, declaring children of illegal immigrants (as well as
tourists and students) to be 14th Amendment citizens.
Click image for large copy
They changed the language from:
"Acquisition of U.S. citizenship generally
is not affected by the fact that the parents may be in the United
States temporarily or illegally;"
"All children born in and subject, at the
time of birth, to the jurisdiction of the United States acquire U.S.
citizenship at birth even if their parents were in the United States
illegally at the time of birth."
Those are vastly different statements. The
rational discussion of the two prior administrations was replaced by the
desperate (to protect) Obama administration on August 21, 2009.
While the prior edition of the manual went only so far as to state that
persons born to illegal immigrant parents on US soil were "considered"
to be US citizens, Obama’s scrubbed edition has struck the limited
holding of Wong Kim Ark and replaced it with his own opinion which
unequivocally declares the children of illegal immigrants (as well as
tourists and students) to be 14th Amendment citizens.
