In the bizarre world of the birthers, the Obama administration's moratorium on drilling in the Gulf is proof positive that he is ineligible to be president. Confused? Well, that's what Orly Taitz claims.
The Mad Moldovan is trying to intervene in Hornbeck Offshore Services' suit against Ken Salazar, the Interior Department and the Minerals Management Srevice seeking to overturn the moratorium. In an all-too-typical Orly filing, she argues that the current stalemate in the case is part of a conspiracy to hide massive Social Security fraud by Obama. I'm not linking it up because, as per Orly's usual practice, her filing is laden with unredacted Social Security numbers. Today, Orly managed to make an oral argument and introduced affadavits claiming that Obama's birth certificate is a forgery.
I don't get why the judge even dignified this by giving Orly a chance to make an argument. Not only is this gambit the definition of frivolous, but she's repeatedly been called down for not redacting SSNs in her filings. Maybe it's because I'm not a lawyer, but I have to wonder why this woman hasn't been threatened with sanctions for this.
This whole affair proves that Orly is well into her 16th minute of fame.
