New: Dummett for President

The Liberty Legal Foundation has filed lawsuits against the bogus National Democratic Party of the U.S.A. both in Arizona and in Tennessee. The latter makes a little sense since the National Democratic Party of the U.S.A. appears to be an alias for the Shelby County, Tennessee, Republican Party. The other defendants including the real Democratic National Committee moved to dismiss, arguing that the plaintiffs lacked standing (ever heard that one?). Attorney Van R. Irion for the LLF argues that they have standing because one of the Plaintiffs, John A. Dummett, is a bona fide [write in] candidate for President in Tennessee.

Did you know that John Dummett was running for President? It’s true, and here part of his official registration form:

Yes friends, he registered this past Tuesday. Now this certainly stirs a memory, of a ballot challenge in Pennsylvania when only a registered Democrat could challenge the Democratic Party’s primary nominees: the problem – the plaintiff registered as a Democrat after the suit was filed. I fear this gambit isn’t going to fare any better.

    ‘Birthers’ sue to force state to verify candidates’ eligibility

    The lawsuit filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and five others also alludes to “questions concerning the eligibility” of Mitt Romney to vie for the role of commander in chief. The birthers’ lawyer, Gary Kreep of Ramona, said Wednesday that his clients wanted the issue of Romney’s eligibility raised because of his parents’ long residency in Mexico.

    There are no provisions in Tennessee law to be a “Republican primary write-in candidate” nor is there a provision in the law to be any kind of write-in candidate for the office of President.

    How can Irion defend the provision the DuMay isn’t a challenger to Obama when Irion and DuMay don’t know how to compete in the state they filed suit in?

    Has anyone seen their endorsement of write-in candidacy? The deadline passed on Tuesday for Republicans CEC 6441 and Democrats (CEC 6241). The American Independent Party doesn’t seem to have a write in option and the deadline to circulate petitions passed 2 months ago. (CEC 6591).

    The only birther I see who appears to be on the primary ballot is Noonan.

    Is there a reason why Van Irion would give the date as “the 27th day of Ziv, Year of our Lord 2012 (a.k.a. May 18, 2012). Even if he were using the Hebrew date, would it not be closer to:

    26th of Iyyar, 5772

    כ’ו בְּא’יָיר תשע’ב

    If I understand, Ziv and Iyyar are basically the same but I am confused on the usage in a TN Federal court.

    Hmm.. is this a whiff of British Israelism (aka Christian Identity) as he has had dealings in the past with adherents (Kirk Lyons comes to mind)?

    Now that’s nasty business. See Michael Barkun’s book, Religion and the Racist Right: The Origins of the Christian Identity Movement

    I think he included this to indicate to the court that he is a wingnut douchebag. Most birthers do this by referring to the President as Barry Soetoro. Irion has chosen to use the Hebrew calendar instead.

    If this catches on, perhaps Dr. Taitz will start sending copies of everything she files to the Sanhedrin.

    Well Orly already (supposedly) sends copies of her filings to: The United Nations Commission for Civil Rights Defenders; US Commission on Civil Rights; Public Integrity Section, Department of Justice; Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights Defenders; International Criminal bar Hague – BPI-ICB-CAPI and the ICB – Regional Office – Americas / Bureau régional – Amériques / Oficina regional – Américas.

    Some of the places/people she cc’s don’t even exist, so adding the Sanhedrin shouldn’t be a problem for Orly.

    What, exactly, is this “his parents’ long residency in Mexico” the L.A. Times article refers to?
