Readers are reminded that the birther Walter Fitzpatrick was convicted of a number of crimes in Tennessee related to his attempts to get a local grand jury to indict individuals involved with allowing Barack Obama to appear on the ballot, and his challenges to the legitimacy of the grand jury foreman.
The convictions on the most recent charges of aggravated perjury and extortion were appealed, and that appeal was heard by the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals. The Court affirmed the conviction. For those wanting to know more about Fitzpatrick, you may click on the “Walter Fitzpatrick III” tag at the end of this article, and for details about the most recent charges and the appeal, the Court’s ruling, which contains an extensive history of the case, is available as part of the Jack Ryan collection at Scribd.
Of note is the reference to FOGBOW in the decision:
In the February 2013 petition, Fitzpatrick alleged that a “self – identified hate group known as FOGBOW” had targeted him as a dangerous individual.
Some discussion has appeared at The Fogbow as to whether the statement from Fitzpatrick is liable to a charge of defamation.
