During an interview on The Alan Colmes Show on Fox News Radio last week, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) said that he plans to file a lawsuit challenging the eligibility of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to serve as president of the United States in the event that he wins the Republican primary.

Grayson told Colmes, “[The Republican primary has] resolved itself into this weird reality show. It’s not ‘The Biggest Loser’ that they’re choosing, it’s ‘The Biggest Bigot.’

Grayson added, “In a sense I guess Cruz is not technically [a bigot], because technically he’s not even an American.

Questions have been raised about the eligibility of Sen. Cruz, whose American mother gave birth to him in Canada, to serve as president of the United States given the Constitution’s undefined requirement that only natural born citizens are eligible to be elected to America’s highest office.

Well, [Cruz’s] mother was born here, so I guess like Obama, though it’s interesting to me that the people who had a problem with Obama’s birth certificate don’t have a problem with Ted Cruz who literally was born in another country and renounced his Canadian citizenry,” said Grayson.

He continued, “I don’t know, the Constitution says natural born Americans, so now we’re counting Canadians as natural born Americans? How does that work? I’m waiting for the moment that he gets the nomination and then I will file that beautiful lawsuit saying that he’s unqualified for the job because he’s ineligible… Call me crazy but I think the president of America should be an American.

According to The Hill, Cruz argued in February, “I was born in Calgary. My mother was an American citizen by birth. Under federal law, that made me an American citizen by birth. The Constitution requires that you be a natural-born citizen.
