Klaudt Wants To Renounce Citizenship

July 20, 2010, 10:15 PM

Klaudt Wants To Renounce Citizenship
The South Dakota state lawmaker involved in an infamous sex scandal in Pierre now wants to renounce his U.S. citizenship. 

Republican Ted Klaudt sent a letter to President Barack Obama saying he no longer wants to be a citizen of the United States. He goes on to say in federal court documents that if he's not a U.S. citizen he shouldn't be held in prison. 

Klaudt was convicted of four counts of rape involving his foster daughters and sentenced to 44 years in prison in 2008. He told his foster daughters he was going to donate their eggs to a fertility clinic and then performed fake exams on them. 

The former state legislator asked for a short sentence because he is 600 pounds and has several health problems and anything over a ten year prison term would be considered a death sentence. 

Now, Klaudt says he is giving up his citizenship and told President Obama if he didn't respond to his letter in 20 days he will no longer be a U.S. citizen and he should be freed.

It was just last December that Klaudt also tried to claim that his name was copyrighted saying news organizations couldn't use it without his permission. But the government's copyright website say names cannot be copyrighted.
