I don’t know whether the birther movement is folding up its tents and going home, or just pausing to catch second wind. In any case, I needed some sort of introductory theme to justify mentioning that Orly Taitz’s lawsuit in Kansas to block Obama from the Ballot there was rejected by Shawnee County Kansas District Court judge Larry Hendricks last Friday, reports the Topeka Capital-Journal. Taitz was also rebuffed by a state court judge in Indiana.
NBC also reports that Defendants Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and Elizabeth Emken have been dismissed from her California suit for several reasons that cannot be remedied. So that’s the end of that.
Taitz has active federal lawsuits in California, Mississippi and Texas. Her RICO claims, of course, are not made moot by the election; they are made moot because the lack any basis in fact.
