Birther queen Orly Taitz is now claiming she has the ability to have President Barack Obama arrested in Connecticut.
Taitz posted on her website Wednesday night that she has three supporters in Connecticut who are willing to sign a petition claiming that Obama has violated election law in the state. Under Sec. 9-368 of the state's election code, if "three electors" in a town sign complaints to a judge claiming violations of election law then an arrest warrant can be issued. Taitz had earlier posted a request for Connecticut residents to sign complaints and asked her supporters to move to one town in the state.
Taitz, a lawyer, dentist and real estate agent from Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., has long claimed that Obama's Social Security number was issued in Connecticut. In recent days she has focused her writings on finding the neighbors of a Bronx, N.Y. man named Harry Bounel, whose Social Security number she believes Obama stole. She claims that Bounel is related to first lady Michelle Obama's step-great grandmother and that the first lady may have claimed to be married to Bounel.
Taitz wrote on her website Wednesday, in her trademark all-caps style:
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
Taitz did not specify if the three volunteers all reside in the same town. Earlier she had posted that she had a volunteer in Stafford Spring, Conn. willing to sign her petition. She then then asked if several of her supporters could move to the small town on the Connecticut-Massachusetts border in order to register to vote and help her get Obama arrested. One supporter commented that they would if someone else paid for the move.
The Connecticut claims come days after Taitz traveled to Washington for Obama's inauguration, where she had planned 12 hours of picketing in front of the White House and Supreme Court. Taitz posted photos and CSPAN video of her holding picket signs in front of the White House on Sunday and in front of Union Station on Monday. Taitz was forced to move Monday's picket to Union Station because the front of the Supreme Court, her planned location, was closed due to the inauguration.
Taitz regularly uses her website to issue various calls to her supporters, including to join her for her inauguration pickets. She has previously requested help in finding the name of a court reporter in California, money to pay for an assistant and money to fund an emergency trip to Kansas in order to get Obama's name removed from the ballot in the state. Taitz has also called on the 80,000 people who watched a YouTube video of her to picket the White House and asked for a volunteer to help her find the names and addresses of the nation's secretaries of state and attorneys general in an effort to get them to block Obama's reelection.
