I’m not talking about after-Christmas sales. I’m talking about shopping for judges.
Taitz and a group of birther legislators in New Hampshire brought a motion before the New Hampshire Supreme Court, seeking to prevent President Obama from appearing on the ballot. They alleged that the President is not eligible because he has too many social-security numbers or something. The New Hampshire Elections commission, who saw nothing resembling evidence in the rambling presentation of Taitz and 5 NH legislators, previously approved Obama for the ballot after verifying that the proper forms had been filed by the President’s campaign. Taitz asked the NH Supreme Court to intervene.
According to Taitz [link to Orly Taitz web site] the NH Supreme Court has declined to assume jurisdiction in the dispute. (As an attorney on another web site has observed, New Hampshire law RSA 665:9 states: “The decision of the ballot law commission shall be final as to questions of both law and fact, and no court shall have jurisdiction to review the decision.”) Next step, the US Supreme Court. Taitz said:
I will be filing with the Supreme Court of the United States a petition for stay of counting of Obama’s votes pending decision on certiorari petition. As NH is in the first circuit, it will go to Justice Breyer. If he denies, I will refile with one of the conservative justices.
In further news, Orly seems not to know what a trial is. According to her description, the hearing scheduled for January 26 in Georgia on another ballot challenge is a “trial.” As usual, she is asking her supporters to show up.
