Taitz ahead 2:1 in CA race

Orly Taitz

That’s what she says in an email to supporters yesterday, claiming that a “Grassroots Constitutional Conservatives” survey shows her with a 30 point lead over her Republican Primary opponent Damon Dunn.

Organizations participating in the survey are listed as (the accuracy and safety of the following links are not assured by the management):

Orly also claims the endorsement of the Republican Party of Lake County (population 65,279). I was unable to verify this claim. The Lake County Record-Bee web site returned no hits when searching for “Taitz,” nor did the Lake County News. Lake County Democrats are supporting Debra Bowen (duh). Obama defeated McCain 58% to 39% there in the 2008 election.

Orly also complained that Dr. Hugo Schwyzer withheld his endorsement and called her a “genuinely terrifying person.” Amen to that, brother.

Other candidates for California Secretary of State:

    this appears to be the same format as her claims on her court cases, does she actually get paypal pushes with these claims, WIERD (are her followers that ________)

    Ha… Hugo Schwyzer’s a bit of a wet blanket most of the time, and I often find his blend of vanilla Jesus-pleasin’ and trying-to-please-everyone feminism irritating, but he just went up somewhat in my estimation.

    This was interesting. Dunn has raised about 40 times as much money from roughly 20 times as many contributors. The contrast is stark.
    Of course, that Taitz couldn’t figure out to run a campaign was evident from the start.

    Based on the photo Dr. C. provided of Taitz, I’ll give the old girl one thing–she’s got a nice set of choppers. Guess she can thank Moldova’s socialized dental care for that.

    Democrat Dung wants the Republican Party nomination because he knows he can’t beat the incumbent in his own party.

    A bright ray of sunshine and light beams upon California with Lady Liberty and Mama Grizzly Orly Taitz, the next Secretary of State of California. Nearly endorsed by Sarah Palin, Orly is an entrepreneur, tireless fighter for truth and justice and an asset to California.

    I’m not ruling out voter fraud if Orly doesn’t win in a landslide. It’s a Republican primary and you’ve got a Democrat whose business office address is also his apartment against a Republican entrepreneur with million dollar office space in Orange County near her Laguana Nigel home.

    I heard she is friends with billionaire Kirk Kerkorian.

    She could have. In fact, at the time I was rather surprised she didn’t. CA election law makes it rather more difficult to file as a D or R than it is to file as another party, or independent.

    Perhaps this is a good time to review the gracious concession speech of King of the Birthers Andy Martin, when he recently lost the Illinois Senate primary to Rep. Mark Kirk.

    I will not support Kirk. I will work to defeat Mark Kirk. He is a fundamentally immoral individual.

    A good wrap up from OFGS regarding the Bowen-Barnett case from OFGS….

    The hearing on June 2 in California Superior Court, Barnett v. Dunn, must have been over so quickly even people who were there didn’t know it happened, although Taitz says* it did.

    June 2nd, 2010 @ 10:35 pm
    What happened to the ex parte hearing regarding Damon Dunn that you and Pamela Barnett said was set on June 2 at 2:15 at Sacramento Superior Court department 54?

    My sister lives in Sacramento, and she went to the trouble of going to the Courthouse at that time yesterday, and there was no hearing.

    What happened?

    1.dr_taitz@yahoo.com
    June 3rd, 2010 @ 4:25 am
    there was a hearing yesterday and the case is continued

    In fact, the expedited hearing didn’t happen because of inadequate notice by Taitz/Barnett; attached emails indicated notice was not given until after 2 p.m. the day before, four hours after the deadline. In addition, an Application for an Order to Show Cause, which was rejected on May 27 for not properly requesting a hearing, was not included with the expedited hearing request, as required. Barnett had wanted the court to issue the Order to Show Cause requiring defendants to explain why the court shouldn’t grant her relief, but she failed to request a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction asking that Dunn, Bowen, and Brown be removed from the ballot. Then, at the last minute, they wanted an expedited hearing on the merits of the case.

    Ironiically, he may have a point there. Kirk is the latest politician to have been caught exaggerating his military credentials.

    Here’s info that may help Dick Whitman: to get un-deluded:
    Campaign disclosures filed with incumbent Secretary of State Debra Bowen show that Taitz has raised $6,000 and loaned her campaign an additional $39,600. Her opponent in the Republican primary, Irvine businessman Damon Dunn, has raised $276,000 and loaned his campaign $60,000 more.”
    “Her campaign disclosures show 21 donors sent money between March 18 and May 22. Dunn got money from 163 donors during that same period.

    I really do get the impression that birthers see losing as vindication. The only bad sign for Jensen is that Taitz could only raise $6K in donations for her campaign. To me, that’s what suggests he’s never going to see $500K.
