    Manley is NOT of constitutional legal age and needs to stop this bullshit. (That said, it’s too bad the SPUSA didn’t have other candidates. And, I don’t know why it and some other parties don’t wait until the actual election year.)

    Yes, he is not constitutionally eligible to be Prez. I’d say he’s better suited running for offices he is old enough for. If I remember correctly its to avoid certain FEC rules.
