This is the second article with a similar title, the first being “Can President be Arrestedor?” from April of 2009. Once again Orly Taitz is sitting at her computer spinning fantasies about how she can discomfit the President, not realizing how utterly absurd the whole concept is.
In that 2009 article I linked to a 2000 US Attorney General opinion that answered the titular question with “no.”
This time, Taitz has lit upon a Connecticut law that allows three electors to swear a complaint against someone for elections law violations, upon which the judge is supposed to issue a warrant for their arrest. Her article’s title is: “It looks like I have 3 individuals from the state of CT, who can file the affirmation of Obama violated laws relating to elections. I need help with research of any and all laws, including CT laws of identity theft, theft of a Social Security number to include in the complaint”.
The law that Orly cites is Chapter 151, § 9-368, which says:
Sec. 9-368. Arrest of accused. Upon the written complaint of any three electors of a town in which a violation of any law relating to elections has occurred to any judge of the superior court for the judicial district within which the offense has been committed, supported by oath or affirmation that the complainants have good reason to believe and do believe that the allegations therein contained are true and can be proved, such judge shall issue a warrant for the arrest of the accused.
Besides the insurmountable problems with any state trying to arrest the President, there are some details that get in the way of Orly’s gambit in Connecticut, namely, her failure to read the statute completely, “Chapter 151 Elections: Prohibited Acts and Penalties.” None of the unlawful conduct listed refers to candidates. They refer to voting and the conduct of elections. I read in the title of Orly’s article that she doesn’t have a clue what Connecticut elections law the President allegedly violated and she expects her Internet followers to be her legal research assistant.
A warning to anyone who plans to get involved with Orly Taitz: Consult an attorney before doing something stupid. Orly Taitz is out to get the President at all costs and does not consider the risk to others.
