Orly Taitz, Birther, Sues To Remove Obama From Kansas Ballot
A Kansas judge has granted an Oct. 3 court hearing to birther queen Orly Taitz in her lawsuit that seeks to keep President Barack Obama off of the Sunflower State's ballot because of what she says are questions about his U.S. citizenship.
Taitz, a California dentist and lawyer, announced on her website Thursday evening that Kansas District Court Judge Larry Hendricks has granted her a hearing in her lawsuit that seeks to overturn a decision by the state Objections Board to keep Obama on the ballot. The Objections Board ruled Monday -- over Taitz' objection -- to drop plans to consider the removal of Obama from the ballot after Joe Montgomery, a Manhattan, Kan., resident, withdrew his challenge to the president's candidacy.
In the lawsuit, Taitz and Kansas resident Roger Walters named Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) and the Objections Board, saying that the board ignored evidence they claim should disqualify Obama from the ballot. Taitz and Walters cite alleged "forgery and fraud" to Obama's birth certificate and Taitz' claims that Obama is using a fake Social Security number from Connecticut. The lawsuit says Taitz provided this information to Kobach prior to Monday's board meeting, and Kobach did not let her testify.
