Anthony Robert Martin-Trigona, usually known as Andy Martin (born 1945), is an American perennial candidate who has pursued numerous litigations.[1] The Nation,[2] The Washington Post,[3] and The New York Times[4] identified him as the primary source of false rumors that then-presidential candidate Barack Obama was secretly a Muslim during the 2008 U.S. Presidential election (an allegation Martin had made as early as 2004). In a later interview with CNN, Martin explicitly abandoned this view and now asserts Obama's real father is not Barack Obama, Sr., but African American journalist Frank Marshall Davis.[5] On October 17, 2008, Martin filed a lawsuit against the state of Hawaii calling for the public release of Barack Obama's birth certificate and other vital records. To counter conspiracy theories that Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States, the Obama campaign previously posted an image of his short-form birth certificate online.[6][7] Martin's lawsuit sought a copy of Sen.

A poll performed in mid-August 2016 showed Deez Nuts slightly edging out Harambe and Jill Stein in Texas, with 3% of the vote.[5] Nuts' bid for the presidency drew attention to the number of questionable candidates who had filed to run for office.[6][7][8] Jim Williams, an analyst at Public Policy Polling, the organization that had con
