Update Tuesday: Obama Birth Cert Lawyer Still Ahead in Superior Court Race

With 1,000 ballots yet to be counted, Ramona conservative Gary Kreep—who took an Obama birth certificate case to the U.S. Supreme Court—remains in the lead.

Update June 19: Constitutional lawyer Gary Kreep retains a thin margin of a lead ahead of Deputy District Attorney Garland Peed for a spot on the Superior Court bench in the latest count of absentee and provisional ballots by San Diego County Registrar of Voters.

Kreep is executive director of the , a conservative political group based in Ramona. The U.S. Supreme Court on June 11 denied his request for a hearing of a case over the eligibility of President Obama to hold office. Kreep brought the case of behalf of some candidates in the 2008 presidential election who claimed they were injured because they were beaten in the race by a man they say was not eligible to hold the presidential office.

The registrar's office still has 1,000 absentee and provisional ballots to count from the June 5 primary election, as of June 19.

The last release of unofficial results on June 19 listed Kreep with 50.19 percent of the vote, to Peed's 49.81 percent. Updates are released daily at approximately 5 p.m.

Both Kreep and Peed received more than 197,000 votes -- among the most of any candidates in the county.

The country is gone to the dogs. Or the highest bidder. It's depressing how a Jew and a muslim that own Fox news have managed with the help of tea party nutters have managed to destroy such a great democracy in so little time . Sick .

I was going to compliment the posts for the outrage expressed, but you spoiled it all with your bigoted statement. Its also inconsistent with previous statements. Tell me you misspoke.
Anti conservative June 14, 2012 at 07:11 PM
I'm not some politician , I don't have to say I misspoke when I tell the truth. Al right maybe I should have said an Australian Jew and a Saudi muslim that are ruining our political system using using two paddys Hannity and o Riley, They also phone tapped victims of the 9/11 attacks as well as having the last two UK governments in their pockets. These people helped create the tea party, who are now with the help of foreign corporations are creating a government here that we will all live to regret. When do you think we will have to nuke Iran. Very shortly if these so called tea party republicans get their way. Can't wait to see how long it will take as soon as Romney becomes commander in chief to take us into more wars, give trillions to the richest and fleece the rest of the ordinary American. Won't be a bad feat for an Australian Jew and a Saudi Jew. If your looking for apologies look in the mirror and apologise to yourself.

Sorry Saudi Muslim

Maybe take on Russia next, that would be a real earner. Rebuilding New York , Washington, Chicago etc. Plenty of profit there for the corporations, they might have a bit of a problem getting a workforce , most of us will be dead or dying from radiation poisoning, but that's the American way. Make a dollar by all means, kill who we want in the name of capitalism, problem this time is the Russians have plenty of nukes as well. Clinton is on the tv starting a new cold war that will warm up very quickly. We might be able to fool half the world into thinking its all right for us to slaughter innocents with our drones but Putin has seen the film once before and knows he will have to stop the American corporations from destroying his country. As soon as we get back to reality and stop believing the drivel coming from the likes of fox news the better for us all. Otherwise it's simple, we will all die

I don't think Romney has any idea of what he'll do. Has Newt & Perry said he'll try to please whomever he's speaking to at the time. Sometimes he even forget what he should say to whom. Example when he attempted to make a joke about his dad moving AMC to Wisconsin. And putting thousands out of work in Michigan. And he was talking to Michigan autoworkers at the time.
Ron Selkovitch June 15, 2012 at 12:47 AM
I haven't said anything that requires an apology, but I'm still interested to know why you described those two people by their religions. Was there any significance to it. If they had been black or gay, would you have still described them as such.
Anti conservative June 15, 2012 at 07:00 AM
Romney doesn't need too know what to do. He people paying for his presidency will tell him what they want him to do. An nothing surer, he is going to. become president. And the bald head evil gnome Rove will be his adviser. God help us all.

Very simple, Susan. Where's the microfiche where it shows Obama was born in Hawaii? Why is it that only the first week of August 1961 (the week Obama was born) is missing from that roll of microfiche/microfilm? Even simpler, Susan, why doesn't Obama just cooperate with Sheriff Joe Arpaio to prove HIM wrong. Pride?

Does it matter to you the the person sitting in the White House acting as a US President usurping the dties of the Commander in Chief, was born a dual-citizen, and therefore since birth has never been, nor will he ever be a Natural Born Citizen?
John June 16, 2012 at 02:05 PM
Does it matter to you that the next person sitting in the white house acting as a US president will be bought and paid for by foreign corporations, gangsters who make billions from gambling and prostitution in Los Vagas, will give trillions in tax cuts to the corporations and billionaires who bankrolled him. Your not 100% sure that the guy in the white house now is an American but does buying the presidency worry you at all. You will worry when Romney goes to war with Russia , he has already said their our no 1 enemy. Maybe you might worry when we nuke Iran because Israel says so. Do you honestly believe the Iranians won't manage to get us here. At least the commander in chief we have now is keeping us safe, Romney will have to be a good little boy and pay back time will be nasty for us all. We are gone back to the times when The British were in charge here, except this times it will be the big corporations No middle class, just masters and their slaves. Snap out of your birther rubbish and smell the coffee.
Ron Selkovitch June 16, 2012 at 02:53 PM
No it doesn't matter to me at all. With all the problems President Obama has inherited, he has done a good job both at home and abroad. It doesn't help that he only gets destructive opposition from Republicans, compounded by the Birthers, and the Tea party.If you are worried about patriotism, look at that opposition which seems to be more concerned with removing Obama, than in the interest of the country.
Gerry Nance June 16, 2012 at 02:57 PM
I voluntarily enlisted in 1972 during the Cold War and Vietnam, served 20-years and retired at age 38. No, it won'y bother me if Congress declares war per A1S8C11, not POTUS. Congress appropriates the money and calls up the DRAFT to put the bodies and guns on the battlefield. The USA needs the DRAFT to wake up the lazy couch potato generation who are addicted to the electronic gadgets. Yeah, WWII with China and Russia, in the Middle-East for control of the oil. Yeah! Wars use up materials, and drive mining, manufacturing, engineering, design, research, and jobs, that produces Gross National Product, taxes, and brings prosperity. Wars cause free demolition, which provides construction jobs. Income drives birth rates and housing sales. Homes need furniture, appliances and hardware.
Gerry Nance June 16, 2012 at 03:03 PM
Ron, Have you ever been a supervisor. Have you ever had a subordinate that was an alcoholic or drug addict? Have you seen how good a worker the worst addicts can be? Romney's not an addict, but Obama is behaving like one. You should fear Obama's second term agenda, especially since he is not constitutionally eligible for POTUS.
Holderisfinished June 16, 2012 at 03:05 PM
Kreeps the man Won't be very long after he is on the bench that a case will be heard against the oscammer. Obots will not get their communist country they been hoping for. Oscammer is no different from Chavez or Castro. We know nothing about the scammer past life because every document such as birth cert. selective service card and social security card all all fake. Just what is he hiding? Sheriff Joe will very soon reveal the truth with what evidence his possee has found in Hawaii and even all over the world.
John June 16, 2012 at 05:59 PM
Your both fairly sick people, one wants to see millions killed so as he can get a job, and the other guy thinks that being a communist is worse than being dead. I love his mention of the battlefield. The war with Russia won't involve a battlefield, just nuked cities and poverty and disease. All over America. That's what's ahead when Romney becomes president. Do you honestly think he will care about congress when all them goodies than Gerry Nance promised us above in exchange for a million American lives. He's bought and paid for. A nuclear was with Russia and China is on the cards. Plenty of demolition, and rebuilding then. But whos going to be left to build then. I'm afraid to lose my 3 children in exchange for a job, it might be easier if the rebublicans played ball and help create some . This country is very sick right now. The two above are so blind with hate because we have a black president that they can't see it.
John June 16, 2012 at 06:06 PM
Just remember the russians and the Chinese can drop their nukes on every American city they choose to. This fight won't be kept in the middle east to suit America, I'm afraid this one is coming home. Hiding under the table and taping up the windows won't work for this war. We are all dead this time.
NunyaBiz June 18, 2012 at 02:28 AM
Kreep and Peed....yeah! Hahahahahaha I know. Nice! That Kreep Peed on us! LOL
NunyaBiz June 18, 2012 at 02:34 AM
Ok. Being born in Hawaii means you're the president. :-) How is that?????
NunyaBiz June 18, 2012 at 02:44 AM
I agree. I don't care if Obama was born on freaking Mars!!! It would not be happening if he wasn't our first African-American president, and deep down people like Kreepy Kreep know it. Trump is a racist and an ass to boot. Obama 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!
borderraven June 18, 2012 at 03:59 AM
Obama may be black on the outside, but he is white on the inside.
Julie Pendray June 18, 2012 at 05:57 PM
Gary Kreep remains ahead, with 4,000 ballots to be counted.
Julie Pendray June 18, 2012 at 06:11 PM
Less than 1% separates them; story updated.
Herald Cauldron June 19, 2012 at 12:59 PM
Are Costa Ricans Americans? How about Colombians? Or, Canadians? How many times do I have to tell you that it is not nice to end sentences with a preposition?
borderraven June 19, 2012 at 01:55 PM
Mexicans, Costa Ricans and Colombians are Central Americans. Citizens of Canada are Canadians. Citizens of the United States of America are Americans. Both Canadians and Americans are North Americans. I hope that helps.
