Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach
A board of three elected Republican officials decided to allow President Barack Obama to remain on the Kansas ballot during a brief meeting on Monday, despite the protest of California lawyer/dentist Orly Taitz, arguably the nation's most infamous "birther."
The unanimous vote brought a swift end to a saga which began Thursday evening when the Kansas Objections Board considered a complaint from a state resident seeking to exclude Obama from the ballot.
The original complaint had been filed by a local conspiracy theorist named Joe Montgomery, who withdrew his objection late Friday.
Nevertheless, Hawaiian officials also sent Kansan officials some additional materials on the president's birth -- the same documents Hawaii sent Arizona earlier in the year -- and this, coupled with Montgomery dropping his complaint, effectively ended the controversy.
There's no realistic chance the president is going win Kansas' six electoral votes anyway, but he'll nevertheless be on the ballot.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, an advisor to the Romney campaign on immigration policy, has closed the window of opportunity to raise new objections.
