GOP bad dream: Birther on ticket By: Kasie Hunt June 7, 2010 03:53 PM EDT
California Republicans optimistic about their prospects in November could find themselves with a bit of a problem after the votes are counted in Tuesdays primaries - a statewide ticket with the so-called Birther Queen as one of their candidates.
Orly Taitz is an Israeli émigré who has spent the last two years filing lawsuits challenging President Barack Obamas right to be president on the grounds that he was born in Kenya. In the process, she has earned herself $20,000 in court fines.
Now shes running for the GOP nomination for secretary of state, and with her establishment-backed primary opponent mounting a less-than-stellar campaign against her, operatives say theres a chance she could win.
Itd be a disaster for the Republican party, says James Lacy, a conservative GOP operative in the state. Can you imagine if [gubernatorial candidate] Meg Whitman and [candidate for Lt. Gov.] Abel Maldonadoboth of whom might have a chance to win in Novemberhad to run with Orly Taitz as secretary of state, who would make her cockamamie issues about Obamas birth certificate problems at the forefront of her activities?
There is no Republican candidate for statewide office that would be willing to have her campaign with them, says Adam Probolsky, a spokesman for the Orange County Republican Party.

We are so scruuuuuuuuud/////////////
yes you are.
drill those oil wells and save the country. save your state, save the country. and lets all start to demand that they ENFORCE THE LAWS>
> “If 0bama was born in Hawaii, why is his SSN (042-xx-xxxx) that of someone born in Connecticut? Hmmmmmmmmmm.” <
Our youngest son was born at NAVHOSP, CAMLEJ, NC. Three years later we PCS’d to 1st MEB, MCAS Kaneohe Bay, HI. During our time there, my wife and I set up a college savings account and life insurance for him, thus an SSN was acquired... an Hawai’i SSN.
One can obtain an SSN later, however, Obama’s scenario stinks to the high heavens!
That would be SO great if she won. As Secretary of State I’m guessing she could legally ask for definitive proof that a candidate is qualified under the Constitution to be on the ballot in California.
Who cares what the Politico thinks?
> “There are more birthers out there than being reported and they too will vote in Nov.” <
“Birtherism” (and the pejorative term doesn’t bother me) is like the crazy uncle at the Family Christmas Dinner. Everyone knows he’s there, but he doesn’t seem to get acknowledge.
Who owns and has writers who write drivel for the Politico? Isn't that the Washington Post as in Compost?
Just like quicksand. I hope you and him keep on thinking that.
duh, this is obama !just because he has a Conn. SS number does’nt mean he does’nt have one for Hawaii,Arizona, California, New York.................didn’t you know that it’s possible for the messiah to be born in numerious states and countries.
It should come as no surprise that Orly lost big time.
But on the bright side, she put up a better fight than any of her court filings did.
She didn't win a single county, including her own.
