The following is a copy of a letter I sent to Tennessee Rep. Eric Swafford, who signed one of Orly’s consent forms to be part of a case to demand documentation from President Obama.
I just want you to know what you are getting into by signing on to Dr. Orly Taitz’s lawsuit.
Taitz is making crazy comments on her website including calling for a “civilian militia” to investigate Obama’s eligibility
Dr. Taitz got her law degree through a correspondence course, and besides defending herself and her husband in numerous malpractice lawsuits, has no litigation experience. See http://www.taftu.edu/honoredgrads.htm. Complaints against Orly Taitz have been filed with the California Bar because of her Internet recruiting of paintiffs using false information.
Her various lawsuits are hopelessly inept, and have been summarily dismissed by every court that has looked at them. One demonstration of her incompetence as a lawyer is here: http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2009/01/alan-keyes-needs-a-good-lawyer/
You might feel that some investigation should be made into Obama’s eligibility, but that will never be achieved without a competent attorney. You’re already being laughed at on the Internet as a “tin foil hat” for associating with Orly. Example here: http://politics.nashvillepost.com/2009/02/10/rep-eric-swafford-joins-the-obama-presidential-eligibility-fight/
Your reputation is your business, but I hate to see anybody dragged down Dr. Orly’s craziness.

Here’s another reference to Swafford over at Foolocracy.com.
And here at The Washington Independent.
We learn via the Nashville Post that Republican Rep. Eric Swafford, of the Tennessee State House, has decided to don clown shoes and join a crackpot legal action demanding Barack Obama’s 1961-issue birth certificate.
Seriously folks. Apparently, you can say or do just about whatever idiotic thing pops into your head and retain that “bona fide” status as a Republican, so long as you don’t challenge Jason Mumpower for the Speakership of the State House.
This year’s session has only just begun and already a lawmaker is making Tennessee a laughingstock. This time, it’s Republican Rep. Eric Swafford who’s slipping on the banana peel. He’s proudly become America’s first state legislator to join the wacky legal action by the weird Russian dentist Orly Taitz demanding Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
In case you were not aware, there are a group of people who think that President Barack Obama may not qualified to serve as President of United States as a natural born citizen of this nation.
They are using the courts to make Barack Obama publicly release documentation proving that he was, if fact, born in the U.S. and at no point renounced his citizenship.
Now here’s the nice part. The hyperlinks in the Nashville Post article are from their web site. Look where the “conspiracy theorists” link goes!
