8. She makes a very good point about the power being given to one state official
From what she says about this bill, it would give the Arizona Secretary of State broad discretion to bar Presidential candidates from the ballot. If a similar law had been in effect in a deep blue state in 2008, the Secretary of State could have barred McCain on the basis of his foreign birth, and apparently no one could have done anything about it.
