Cort Wrotnowski was one of the early plaintiffs challenging Obama’s eligibility in 2008 (a case in New Jersey that was ultimately refused a hearing by the US Supreme Court). In an email to supporters yesterday, he had strong words for the New Hampshire Secretary of State, William M. Gardner:
You need to wake up. You have been caught lying, aka breaking the law; the word is spreading; folks are working overtime to inform others of your law breaking along with the Ballot Law Commission (the radio interviews are getting lined up, bloggers are being engaged, flyers are being passed out in the street, people are signing petitions); there is a pending suit before the state supreme court about which more people are being informed…what are you going to do? Run? Hide? Make up more lies? Get mysteriously ill? Leave town? Run a scam against the people who caught you? You are running out of options.
My question is: Are you going to be a man and face the facts, or are you going to keep on stonewalling and playing stupid? My advice is to play it straight. It’s OK to be terrified of making this big step. But taking Obama off the ballot for the reasons mentioned below will show you are able to rise above prejudice and partisantship [sic]; that, once again, you are able to administer your office in a fair and impartial manner that simply follows the law, no matter how controversial your decision.
Count this as an early storm warning. Failure to heed it only means you are sunk.
In the preceding, I believe Mr. Wrotnowski intends to the phrase “fair and impartial” to mean “believes my conspiracy theory.” I wonder what me means by “sunk.”
In passing, I would note that on the Republican side there have been, to date, 30 individuals who have filed with the New Hampshire Secretary of State as presidential candidates. Fourteen are signed up on the Democrat side. The Republican list includes self-proclaimed King of the Birthers and Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin [not his real name]. On the Democrat side, I note Vermin Supreme. I have questions about the eligibility of Mr. Supreme for President because he doesn’t meet the two natural born kidney requirement. Why is Wrotnowski not out in front on this issue?
