From the State of New Jersey website -
The Criminal Code, in N.J.S.A.2C:51-2, provides that a person
holding any public office, position or employment must forfeit the
office or position (1) if the person is convicted of an offense involving dishonesty, of a crime of the third degree or above, or of an offense involving or touching the office, position or employment; or (2) if the Constitution or a statute other than the Criminal Code so provides. The bill removes the last reference to a statute other than the Criminal Code.
When Barry's mother remarried and moved to Indonesia, young Barack took on his new daddy's surname and was registered as Barry Soetoro in order to go to school. I may be mistaken here, but if Barry Soetoro never had his name legally changed back to Barack Obama wouldn't that qualify as 'dishonesty'?
