A Juneau man has filed a lawsuit trying to compel the state of Alaska to prove that President Obama is qualified to be on the ballot.

Gordon Warren Epperly claims in the lawsuit that Obama's citizenship status is unknown, and that Obama was illegally inaugurated in 2009. KTOO reports Epperly also questions U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi's right to run for federal office since she's a woman.

The lawsuit was filed against Obama, Pelosi, the state's election director and Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, a Republican who oversees Alaska elections.

The state has filed a motion to dismiss. Assistant Alaska Attorney General Elizabeth Bakalar wrote that Epperly's statements "are repugnant and absurd."

She also says there's no factual basis for his claims, other than "wholly discredited conspiracy theories."
