You make a good point; I for one (mea culpa) have overlooked
this detail; however, don't the powers of a notary vary from
state to state; for example, I believe in the state of Virginia,
a notary can administer an oath.

Of course as you bring to light, that wasn't done, at least as
far as I can tell.


Cheers,
