It is with deepest sorrow that I make this announcement. The nation has lost a great constitutional scholar, attorney, and patriot – especially in regards to his efforts to support and defend Article II Section 1 Clause 5, the presidential eligibility clause. He was a giant in that field of constitutional law. I have also lost a good friend.
