TOPEKA, KS (KCTV) -
A Republican-led Kansas board is considering removing President Barack Obama from the state's November ballot.
The board has asked Obama's campaign to provide more information about whether he was born in Hawaii or not. The board plans to meet Monday and possibly vote on whether to keep Obama on the ballot.
The State Objections Board heard arguments Thursday on a claim from a Manhattan resident that Obama is not eligible to be president because his father was from Kenya. The resident, Joe Montgomery, also questions whether Obama has a valid birth certificate.
The president released a copy of his long-form birth certificate last year, and Hawaii officials have verified his citizenship repeatedly.
The Kansas board is made up of Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer. All three are Republicans.
Kobach has drawn national attention because of his involvement in immigration issues, including helping write Arizona's controversial immigration law. He is an immigration advisor to GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
Representatives for the three officeholders said it would be inappropriate to comment before Monday's vote.
The board agreed to see certified documents from Hawaii and two other states where similar questions about Obama's citizenship have been raised before deciding the issue.
Montgomery addressed the board.
"Mr. Obama's campaign points to invisible public records that document Mr. Obama was allegedly born in Hawaii, but there is no certified legal documentation provided by his counsel," Montgomery said. "Federal rules of evidence consider certified documentation to be self authenticating but only when submitted to a legal body for inspection by all parties for authenticity."
Friday afternoon, Montgomery withdrew his complaint.
Montgomery told the secretary of state's office by email Friday that he and people around him have faced what he called "animosity" over his challenge to Obama's inclusion on the ballot.
It wasn't immediately clear how this affects Monday's meeting.
Obama's mother was from Kansas.
The board did rule on behalf of Democrat Tom Sawyer. The panel found that Sawyer can appear on the ballot for the 95th House District seat. Critics claimed he didn't live in the district in which he is registered to vote. Sawyer faces Republican incumbent Benny Boman.
