Another challenge from birther queen Orly Taitz against President Obama's birth certificate has been thrown out of court.
U.S. District Judge David O. Carter's decision came down this morning. dismissed Orly Taitz's challenge that Barack Obama is not a natural-born citizen and so is not the country's legitimate president.
Judge Carter wrote in his decision that the plantiffs were asking the Court "to effectively overthrow a sitting president who was popularly elected by We the People‚ sixty-nine million of the people."
Carter said before the ruling came down that his office was getting 40 to 100 calls from birthers urging him to back Taitz, after she asked for support on her website.
Dave Weigel points out that the decision also confirms that witnesses complained Taitz wanted them to lie on the stand.
