Are Tennessee Democrats advocating for a check on Obama's eligibility? It could be construed as such by this Jackson sun article...
State Sen. Roy Herron, D-Dresden, said he has called the state coordinator of elections to request that the citizenship rights requirement be included in the book of election law and in training for county election administrators.

State Sen. Lowe Finney, D-Jackson, said the Tennessee Association of County Election Officials will meet within the next two weeks to draft a list of proposed legislative changes before the Feb. 17 deadline to file legislation for the year. He said he predicts they will discuss housing the citizenship rights requirement in state election law.
Now will they be attacked as "birthers"?
