I’ve been wondering what’s up with the Lucas Smith declaration dated October 12, 2009. In it Smith states that Orly Taitz asked him to lie under oath, and (in graphic detail) that Orly is sleeping with members of the legal team, in particular Charles E. Lincoln III.
First one has to wonder whether the declaration itself is authentic, something I haven’t had time to research, but assuming it is, why? He has a two criminal convictions and has been trying to sell fake documents on eBay, so his credibility is minimal at best. It would seem to me that Smith is trying to discredit Orly Taitz with her far right Christian Evangelical base.
My best guess is that Orly Taitz is hogging all the birther publicity, and very bad publicity it is. Someone wants discredit Taitz and the birther movement so that it will not be a drag on Conservative chances in the next election. The faithful that follow Orly will vote conservative birther movement or no, but the more moderate Republicans may be turned off by the lunacy. I’m thinking that some well heeled conservatives are paying Smith for his help.
