But the board adjorned without giving her a chance to be heard after ruling it had no reason to keep Obama off the Kansas ballot. California lawyer Orly Taitz attempted to speak to the State Objections Board on Sept. 17 on the subject of President Barack Obama's candidacy in Kansas. But the board adjorned without giving her a chance to be heard after ruling it had no reason to keep Obama off the Kansas ballot.
A California lawyer who earlier this week failed to convince the State Objections Board to keep President Barack Obamas name off the Kansas general election ballot filed suit Thursday in Shawnee County seeking an emergency stay of the boards action.
Orly Taitz, who wasnt allowed to speak to the State Objections Board on Monday when it officially placed Obama on the November ballot, said her suit was filed on the behalf of a client she identified only as Mr. Walters, a citizen of Kansas.
In a statement on her website, Taitz said the suit filed Thursday afternoon, which names Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach as the defendant, would challenge the boards decision on what she called overwhelming evidence of the elections fraud by Mr. Obama.
Taitz claims the president has engaged in identity fraud in the use of forged identification papers, including a Connecticut Social Security number not issued to him, and is using a last name that isnt legally his.
Plaintiffs are seeking an emergency preliminary injunction keeping Mr. Obama off the general election ballot until the original identification papers are finally produced and examined by experts, Taitz said in a statement.
A hearing was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Oct. 3 before Shawnee County District Court Judge Larry Hendricks, Taitz said.
In an interview with The Topeka Capital-Journal, Taitz said she came to Topeka on Monday after learning of the challenge to Obamas candidacy filed by a Manhattan man, Joe Montgomery, who claimed the president wasnt a natural-born citizen.
The State Objections Board comprised of Kobach, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, all Republicans heard Montgomerys concern in a Sept. 13 meeting, after which it announced it wouldnt certify Obamas place on the Kansas ballot until examining birth certificate information from Hawaii.
Montgomery a day later asked for his objection to be withdrawn, saying he faced intimidation directed not only at me, but at people around me.
In a short hearing Monday, Kobach said the objections board had examined documents from Hawaii and found no reason not to put Obamas name on the ballot.
Taitz asked to speak before the board but was denied the opportunity. She claimed Kobach and the board erred in allowing Montgomery to withdraw his complaint.
The evidence was not heard by the secretary of state, she said in a telephone interview Thursday.
The plaintiff, Mr. Joseph Montgomery, has stated he was intimidated, he was harassed. In legal terms, what happened to him is duress, Taitz said. If he withdraws under duress, and this was a clear case of duress, his withdrawal is not valid. The secretary of state made a clear mistake in not recognizing he was under duress.
Taitz attempted to present her argument to media gathered outside the hearing room at the Statehouse. She was ordered to leave by security officers after she became involved in a heated argument with another man. The verbal confrontation continued outside on the Statehouse grounds.
I am Shocked
Orly is working hard and will take Obama down in Kansas leading to Obama’s defeat and Romney to appoint her to the SCOTUS.
Funny, I would aim a bit lower. Let’s hope that Orly properly filed the paperwork.
Such a suit should be filed agains EVERY DAMN Secretary of state.
Now someone is thinking.... stop going after Bozo...
Go after his minions!
Sure she will. It’s not like we’ve heard the same thing over and over and ... Oh wait.
It’s a pity how so few people realize how lunatics like Orly reflect on conservatives as a whole. How the woman’s ego can withstand public humiliation after public humiliation is beyond me.
Unlike those in this country who know what is going on and who should and could do something about the fraud in the WH but don’t ... at least Orly keeps on trying. When the fraud perpetrated on the country is finally exposed one of these days, history will be kind to Orly.
Yeah, it is sad about Orly. Our high paid conservative attorneys would never get involved with a Presidential forged birth certificate. They would rather pretend it was real.
Orly? SCOTUS? I’ve yet to decide if you’re a liberal plant, or a full blown nutcase. In either event, there is no way that the crazy dentist with no judicial experience is ever sitting on the high court.
Three cheers for your spirited defense of someone who refuses to be humiliated for her consistent, laudable efforts to expose the Kenyan Imposter now defiling the People’s House!
I’m gonna guess $$$.
I agree. We have real nutcases like Roberts instead. There is no point in putting her on.
You forgot his Obamacare decision so soon?
