Explosive Interview on Denver talk radio
The Internet aside, the 630-KHOW radio host is easily the top source for birther flame-fanning in Colorado.
You can play this morning’s show below (the Taitz segment starts at 14:10).
Let me finish!
Taitz described her historic court trial in Indiana Monday as a “trial against Obama” (Barack Obama isn’t a defendant in that case). Taitz said, “There are 30 million people who read my web site and they are extremely angry [at John Sampson],” so show producers called John Sampson, former Taitz witness in Georgia, to ask him why he’s not going to appear in Indiana for Taitz. This is what he said (from recording after 19:45):
A couple of things, Peter: Number 1, as you know and as your listeners know, I’ve got my own political race that I’m in the middle of, and quite frankly the polling data that we have shows that it’s a statistical tie. Every minute that I take away from the campaign, I have more catch-up to do later on and it adversely impacts my chances getting elected to the Colorado State Senate. That’s item 1.
Item 2 is on March 26, 2012, I was down in Phoenix, Arizona, and met with Joe Arpaio and his crew. And at that meeting I was instructed, because there’s an ongoing criminal investigation, that they would appreciate it that if I didn’t testify at any other hearings. Because of the information that I became privy to as a result of that meeting. Once I get on the witness stand, lord only knows what questions are gonna be asked. And as a result, I’ve been in touch with Mike Zullo who is the lead investigator for this thing and none of us are going, and I understand where Dr. Taitz is with this, I really do, and I applaud her efforts, but I’m in a bind right now where I cannot …
[Orly interrupts at this point]
Taitz: This is complete nonsense! …
Peter Boyles: Orly, Please…
Taitz: let me finish; let me finish …
Boyles: Orly, Please…
Taitz: … Let me finish …
Sampson: Peter, If you can’t put a muzzle on her, I’m gonna hang up.
[Much conversation back and forth is omitted in the elided parts]
Just wow! Arpaio shares with an out of state civilian critical details of an ongoing investigation, but tells him to keep it out of the hands of the courts. I must side with Orly Taitz when she says John’s second point is nonsense. Anything Arpaio told him is hearsay and inadmissible. Boyles says that Taitz and Sampson are both “friends” but he clearly likes Sampson best.
