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. 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Montgomery a day later asked for his objection to be withdrawn, saying he faced intimidation directed not only at me, but at people around me.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.
One decision, versus a lifetime of ineptitude. Like I said, full retard.
I am sure Orly would be more than happy to turn over her work to some accomplished attorney on the conservative side. But, our “other guys” are hiding.
Turn over her “work?” Are you kidding? Any “accomplished” attorney would start from scratch, to avoid the hassle.
Roberts decision will have a gigantic impact on the country. It will prove to be a costly ineptitude. It will damage the country far more than anything Orly can possibly gin up.
Where are they?????????
Orly is one of the few people who really cares.
Maybe Orly should file a proper (snort) brief challenging the Roberts decision . . . .
Let me turn that around on you: do you believe there are no conservative lawyers in this country? Or simply ones who do not agree with you?
My guess is that she knows a bit more about the value of freedom and what living under real tyranny is like than I do, because she is fearless now.
She would likely be welcomed by the Founding Fathers as a like minded patriot, but the rest of us? Not likely.
Many to most pervert the Constitution they barely understand and let others fight those who would take away what we take for granted.
I don’t remember anyone showing up in Kansas, maybe there were several that agreed with me. But, most are just cowering over a forgery. I know you must think the forgery is just fine to hoist on the American people. You should be comforted, most consevative attorneys agree with you.
Need a hug?
Did you notice the anti-American traitorous trash Obama nominated are now on the Supreme Court?
Talking about qualifications, not ideology. Are there any sitting members of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, with JD’s they got online?
Did Larry Klayman get a sex change because this sounds like all the things he supposedly had on Clinton.
Is she accepting donations?
The “hate Orly” crowd loves procedure. Forms filled out properly seems to activate them. Principles are not foremost in their minds. Since I am not an attorney, I could care less about their hallowed procedures. The trash this guy has put on the court should be embarrassing to them, but nothing phases them. The “trash” has a portfolio of properly filled out forms so they are respected members of Scotus.
“Orly? SCOTUS? Ive yet to decide if youre 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.”
Orly would not be any worse than most of those on the SCOTUS today. The women of this country deserve much better than the likes of Ruth Buzzy, The “wise Latina,” and the fat pig from Club Obama! We’d be better served by Martha and the Vandellas.
You have a way with words. I agree.
I see Dr Taitz as a true American. She has seen communism at it's worst and is fighting with every once of strength she has to prevent America from becoming a socialist communist country. I wish every American had the conviction that she does for following our constitution. Yes she is getting stonewalled at every turn. Should she just quit? What would have happened if our military had just quit on Normandy's beach? What if we had just quit after Pearl Harbor was attacked? It's people like her that are our truest American heroes. She never says quit and she never ceases to fight for what is right. I see her as a great American hero and she should never be demeaned for standing up for what so few others have the backbone for.
Go after his minions!
Dupes. They are failing to act from ignorance not from malice.
