An Illinois judge on Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit that challenged the eligibility of Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
The lawsuit was filed by Lawrence Joyce, a lawyer who challenged Cruz’s eligibility to be president because he was born in Canada to an American mother.
“What I fear is that Ted Cruz becomes the nominee, come September, Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida will go forward with his threats and probably several other Democrats will file suit to prevent Ted Cruz from being on the ballot,” Joyce told USA Today.
“I’m waiting for the moment that he gets the nomination, and then I will file that beautiful lawsuit saying that he’s unqualified for the job because he’s ineligible,” Grayson said in a radio interview in November.
“Call me crazy, but I think the president of America should be an American.”
