President Barack Obama could not pass a background check if he was applying for a gun permit or a job. Why has this man been allowed to remain in office or take the oath for a second time?

If there is a background check required for free exercise of ANY constitutionally-protected right, that same background check should be done on all persons seeking to run for elective office. And if failure can't bar them from running or being on the ballot, the results should be made public.

(I wonder if a state law barring failures from appearing on the ballot would be Constitutional? I imagine it would be, as states are responsible for running elections.)
