Much speculation has been seen among the anti-Birthers over the non-participation of attorney Mario Apuzzo (pictured right) in the number of state ballot challenges rising, and falling, across the country, speculation primarily focused on the floundering do-it-yourself (pro se) federal appeal of the lawyer-less Charles Tisdale in Virginia and why Apuzzo doesn’t lend him a hand.
Speculate no more. Charles Kerchner announced today1 that Mario Apuzzo will assist him and Dale A. Laudenslager with their ballot challenge in Pennsylvania. Previously Laudenslager/Kerchner were represented by Pennsylvania attorney Karen L. Kiefer and Apuzzo will be co-counsel (I don’t know if Apuzzo will need to apply for pro hac vice status). Given Mr. Apuzzo’s record so far in challenging Barack Obama, I’m not sure whether this helps or hurts the case.
Phil Berg has also weighed in with a suit in his home state of Pennsylvania.

1I’m always amused by that photo of Mario Apuzzo because it is one that I cropped from a group photo of him at a policeman’s auxiliary meeting way back in February of 2009. Apuzzo since adopted it for his own blog. That’s fine. It’s a great photo.
