Skip to comments.Court document swears Kenyan birth cert legit- Owner risks perjury in high-profile case

With a scheduled hearing date looming Tuesday, Lucas Smith, the man who tried to sell an alleged Barack Obama Kenyan birth certificate on eBay, has filed court papers in a high-profile eligibility case insisting under threat of perjury that the Obama birth certificate in his possession is the genuine article.
Smith filed his affidavit through California attorney Orly Taitz, who has spearheaded several lawsuits challenging Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility to serve as president, as part of a case that includes as plaintiff former presidential candidate Alan Keyes.
Taitz posted on her blog Smith's declaration, which claims he obtained the alleged birth certificate from Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya, and insists it's real.
"The true and correct photocopy of the birth certificate obtained is attached to this affidavit as Exhibit A," the declaration reads. "I declare, certify, verify, state and affirm under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the foregoing statements of fact and descriptions of circumstances and events are true and correct."
Smith's affidavit, which includes a copy of the certificate, has been filed with Judge David Carter of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Carter is scheduled to preside over a hearing on the case on Sept. 8.
Taitz told WND she believes the swiftly approaching court date prompted Smith into action:
"He has been in touch with me for quite a while, and he emailed me the document with his signature," Taitz said. "I think he was trying to figure out the most expedient way to bring his message public, and maybe he felt that because I have a hearing coming, that would be the most expedient way."
Taitz hopes the court will order expedited discovery, a ruling that would open

Even though it should, I don’t think this birth certificate thing is going to rid us of the cancer that is Obama. We are stuck with an ILLEGAL ‘president’ for the next 3.5 years. Heavy sigh.
I, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., do solemnly swear....
Let’s at least cripple him politically in every imaginable way. He is a cancer, a commie cancer.
You post in Haiku?
At the very least, this is quite interesting news...
I think our best hope is to get the House back under Republican control in 2010. If that happens, and it's a big if, maybe we can at least stop Obama's commie takeover of the USA.
Well if the guy is willing to perjure himself, he either doesn’t mind going to jail or he’s pretty sure he has the real thing.
He'd have to be one dumb you-know-what to not only accept this document, but file this as evidence if it wasn't authentic!
I was listening to Mike Church on XM for the 1st time today. He said the “birthers” have no ground to stand on and that the BC has been proven and clarified as authentic. he said “Leave it alone”. Does anyone know anything about this twit.
Show us the Birth Certificate.
Aw, what the heck. It’s seems real enough for me.
Black ink pad ....................................... $3.50 Moist alcohol towlette............................... $0.35 Court order for Obama to present his right foot.......Priceless
Works for me. The man is utterly incompetent.
Actually in the declaration he states “ I had to pay a “cash” consideration to a Kenyan miltary officer on duty to look the other way, while I obtained a copy of the birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama”
It’s funny because during the primaries and campaign season, some foreign media wrote of ‘foreign born’ Obama or Kenyan Obama, sometimes referencing the Hawaii birth info or the resulting discrepancy. But many of them seemed to assume, rightly or wrongly, that Obama was not born in the US. But those here who question it, or even wonder why the foreign press would keep printing it, are considered the problem?
How do you say "yes" in Haiku?
