Wins Tea Party straw poll in Yuba City
Yuba City sits right at edge of Sutter Buttes in Sutter County.
The Sutter Buttes Tea Party Patriots held a straw poll last week (May 19), and Taitz reports she won the Attorney General race. Taitz was invited to appear at the Sutter Buttes Tea Party Patriots “Meet the Candidates” in 2012 when she was running for the Senate—don’t know if she made it, but she had confirmed. Orly Taitz got 3.9% of the Senate Primary vote in Sutter County in 2012.
The Territorial Dispatch (the local newspaper) mentions the “All Candidates Mixer” in its May 14 issue mentions, but the May 21 and May 28 issues don’t mention the result. It only appears on their blog. The Sutter Buttes Tea Party Web site has some photos of the event.
I did find this cryptic item in the Territorial Dispatch for May 21:
Meanwhile, the Orly Taitz Super PAC is taking credit for Orly’s win in Yuba City. In an article titled: “Stunning success for Orly Taitz Super PAC” they write:
This is HUGE!
Followers of the Orly Taitz Super PAC may remember Pat M’s comment on our Supporter’s Page:
I was real excited at the presentation at the Protect Our Freedoms Foundation workshop in Yuba City. What your doing is very important and I just wish I had more dollars to spare.
Well Pat, thanks to you and many more, we’ve achieved a stunning success in Yuba City. Candidate Taitz on her blog reports the news that:
the Sutter Buttes Tea Party Patriots announced the results of their 2014 Gubernatorial Primary Election Straw Poll. The Straw Poll was conducted using secret ballots submitted by members who attended the “All Candidates Mixer Extravaganza,” Monday, May 19, 2014.
Their choice for California Attorney General?
Fakes and Frauds
Orly is saying that someone created a fake Facebook page for her. She asked that it be removed, and the link Orly supplied doesn’t work now, so maybe Facebook did remove it.
I was looking for polling results on the California Attorney General race—didn’t find any. Commentary I read says that Democratic incumbent Kamala D. Harris is a shoe in–no idea who will be #2. California has a “top-two” primary system, where all the candidates run together, and the top two, regardless of party, move on. In California it’s not unusual to have two Democrats facing each other in the general election.
Anyway, I came to the Ballotpedia web site entry for the 2014 California AG contest, which links to Orly Taitz’ campaign web site. Her site is a WordPress blog with a nice header graphic featuring the Golden Gate Bridge, and Orly’s smiling face. The articles have a named author, in this case Chito Papa, a Florida “computer guy” that testified for her in the Farrar case in Atlanta.
Whoever is running the site isn’t all that concerned about its appearance, evidenced by this leftover on the front page:
Also on the Orly Gear page, there is a month-old inquiry from a KFBK staffer asking for an Orly Taitz’ photo for their candidates page at KFBK.com. There is no reply on Orly’s web site, and the KFBK page now has that really goofy Washington Post photo by Jonathan Alcorn.
No one expects…
The Orly Taitz Super PAC put up a message a few weeks back that they had moved to a new and faster server. It seemed to have worked as I got about 3 second response on that home page. They have a new short article up complaining about the Los Angeles Times ignoring Taitz.
Battle of the bumper stickers
The official Orly Gear page has a bunch of different bumper stickers that you can order from MakeStickers.com. The Orly Taitz Super PAC is also offering bumper stickers from the same company, only just a single design. Both competing web sites are charging the same $4.95 for a standard-sized sticker, so neither is making any money off them. Orly says that a t=shirt is coming soon, but they better hurry because the race is likely to be over in 11 days.
I came across an independent progressive web site covering the California AG race, that had some comical things to say about Taitz.
Interesting true story. I was talking to one of the anti-birthers at the Fogbow meetup Saturday. It appears that she had attended a meeting, not suspecting that there would be one of those “patriotic presentations” from the Orly Taitz Super PAC as part of the program, including the handing out of OTSP bumper stickers. (No one expects the Orly Taitz Super PAC.) So I asked her, if she was going to vote for Orly Taitz for California AG. She said no, that even for a joke, her vote was too valuable to her.
I can certainly appreciate such a sentiment. On the other hand, I know some folks who want Orly Taitz to be in the AG runoff race for the entertainment value. Contrary to popular belief, I won’t be voting and will remain neutral on the contest.
On an unrelated Taitz story, Orly received an invitation to attend an International Criminal Court school for attorneys and NGOs in Ireland. She’s asking for donations to pay her way ($2,500) for the June 16-20 school about how the ICC works. I think I’ll save up my money for the Fogbow meetup in Hawaii next year instead.

No Party Preference
I just saw this in the Twitter feed.
Readers may recall that Orly Taitz in her most recent two filings in Mississippi raised the issue of the Orly Taitz Super PAC, alleging that it was stealing money from her campaign. Now the Orly Taitz Super PAC has responded with an article sympathetic to Taitz, and this pledge:
We give our solemn assurance that every penny raised by the Orly Taitz Super PAC is used to promote Orly Taitz’ candidacy for Attorney General.
This article has been updated to show the spiffy new graphic for the Orly Taitz Super PAC. According to the Volunteer page, it was donated by someone with the initials PA.
On Taitz’ web site, and in her latest filing in Mississippi, Orly Taitz included a March 16 web comment from someone named “Marie Anderson” with an IP address in California (the IP address is only in the court filing). Here’s the text:
I think I was fooled into this scam when I sent an e-mail to the wrong address. I received a reply which was supposedly from you which stated as follows:
I appreciate your support but wanted to let you know not to send any donations through PayPal because someone has tampered with my Pay Pal account. Therefore, please make out a check payable to Protect Our Freedoms Foundation and mail it to P.O. Box 1173, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677.
Orly Taitz, Attorney at Law”
I obviously put a stop payment to the check. Thanks for letting us know.
In the Mississippi court filing, Taitz includes this in Exhibit 1 with the Orly Taitz Super PAC screen shots and characterizes them as a RICO activity stealing money from her.
There is a scam going on, but I think it’s not the fake Protect Our Freedoms Foundation, but rather a fake Marie Anderson2. I say that for three reasons: First, Marie Anderson has commented nowhere else on Taitz’ site, there was no other reference on the web to a Protect Our Freedoms Foundation when this first appeared on Orly’s web site, and most importantly, there is no P. O. Box 1173 in Laguna Niguel, California (and no such business registered in the State of California).
The lookup fails with or without the ZIP Code. One cannot siphon off funds without a valid mailing address. In the same manner, the Orly Taitz Super PAC contains no mechanism on the web site through which someone could actually make a donation. It appears to me that nobody is stealing any money from Orly Taitz; they are just feeding her paranoia.
I suppose there could be a real Marie Anderson who was punked, but the bottom line is that no one can received real checks at a fake PO box. Anderson made another comment at the Taitz site not in the court filing:
By the way, isn’t Laguna Niguel near where you live? Maybe you can obtain a subpoena to find out who rented that PO Box. I’ll bet that an Obot set up this scam and maybe, once you have a name, maybe this person will make a deal to tie Obama to this scam in exchange for immunity. Pardon my French but I think you have them by the balls!
PS: The fake lobbyist from Texas also used the name “Anderson.”
