So now we know that Orly Taitz filed a complaint with the California Bar against Scott Tepper, an attorney that is appearing pro hac vice against her in the Mississippi ballot challenge filed by Taitz. In her world, Obama is a fraud and everyone who defends him is a criminal conspirator. While this is classic conspiracy theory thinking, we don’t usually see it played out in official channels, here the courts and the bar association.
Taitz complained specifically that Tepper had presented a legible copy of Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate to the Mississippi District Court to replace the mostly unreadable copy that Taitz herself had previously submitted to the same Court. Taitz moved for sanctions against Tepper in Mississippi, and Tepper subsequently provided a verification of authenticity from the State of Hawaii for all the information on the certificate.
The California Bar in response to Taitz replied in essence that it doesn’t decide on the authenticity of documents and that the courts and law enforcement are the ones to deal with allegations of criminal fraud.
Specifically the reply from the California Bar (page 78 in this attachment) states:
Your complaint also concerns a matter of national security which is beyond the scope of the State Bar.
Without a copy of the Taitz complaint, it’s not possible to know exactly what the additional “matter” referenced here is. Taitz, however, characterizes it as the forged birth certificate in her recent motion to re-open the dismissed Barnett v. Obama federal lawsuit in California.
