Orly Taitz Birther Crazy Train Stops in New Hampshire; She Begs for $$$ to Keep Chugging
The state's Ballot Law Commission flatly turned down the complaint with a very public 5-0 vote, causing birther bellyachers to make a showy retreat from the Concord hearing room, braying, "Treason!" "Traitors" and "You have no decency." All that was missing were the muskets, powdered wigs and secret slave mistresses.
Here is video of the monster jam:
"The level of corruption was unbelievable," Taitz reportedly said later to Sharon Rondeau of something called the Post & Email. "We found out that all five members of the committee are Democrats. As I was presenting all of the evidence, people were listening and getting more and more angry."
Uh . . . here's the deal: as with just about any birther filing Taitz has had tossed out of federal courts like yesteray's junk mail, her latest allegation has no merit. As Igor Bobic writes on something called Talking Points Memo: "If indeed all members of the commission were Democrats, New Hampshire would have a major legal problem. Except Brad Cook, the chair of the commission, is a prominent Republican."
One can't even label Cook a RINO: a quick check of his bio reveals he is a respected corporate lawyer and lobbyist who has represented evangelical, Lutheran and Catholic churches, and he played a prominent part in John McCain's New Hampshire primary.
But heaven knows stupid things like facts won't stop Orly, who has demanded an emergency hearing with the New Hampshire Speaker of the House to advocate the ouster of New Hampshire Secretary of State William Gardner over the non-controversial makeup of the state ballot panel.
By the way, if you wonder how Taitz can afford to continue her cross-country crazy tour, a clue comes in a Post & Email account of a phone conversation where she whines that she has used up all her frequent flyer miles and will have to turn to her supporters for donations of cash or miles so she can continue back and forth from California to places like New Hampshire and Hawaai. Sounds like someone needs the Koch brothers--if she isn't getting their help already.
