Orly Taitz Doubles Down On Kenyan Birth Certificate

Posted: Updated:

The "Kenyan birth certificate" circulated online in the past few days was quickly exposed as a fake. Some conservatives suggested the flimsy piece of work was created by Obama supporters to make the birthers look foolish.

But birther-leader Orly Taitz is doubling down on the document. From her blog (via Salon, which warns that Firefox sees orlytaitzesq.com as "an attack site.")

Recently Obama's thugs in main stream (sic) media came up with this Bomford report in order to stop my efforts in exposing and prosecuting Obama. Though typically I don't have time to waste on each and every dumb obot, since it got to National TV and my children's friends called my children, I'll spend a few minutes to debunk the obots.

Taitz goes on to make a few dubious claims, but mostly just argues that she doesn't have to prove the birth certificate is real: "I am not supposed to waste my time and money on this issue, Obama us the one who is supposed to provide evidence of legitimacy ... Kenyan BC provides more info than the piece of garbage Obama posted on the net."

She also cites Hillary Clinton's trip to Kenya as proof that the administration takes the birth certificate issue seriously.

Meanwhile, other birthers are worried Taitz is discrediting their movement. "I've advised her in writing, along with several other attorneys, that if she has an original document that seems to bolster her case, it needs to be examined by a professional document examiner," a lawyer who assisted her in the past told the Washington Independent.

Taitz had a meltdown on MSNBC Monday night, blaming media "brownshirts" for the whole mess.
