Update Feb. 1
California lawyer-dentist Orly Taitz, a vocal member of the "birther" movement, is hitting the nation's capital to try to persuade a federal judge here in Washington that President Barack Obama is not a qualified United States citizen to hold the office of president.
Taitz's latest suit, filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, resembles those she has unsuccessfully filed on behalf of clients in other courts. Taitz filed the suit in Washington pro se as the sole plaintiff. Click here for a copy of the latest complaint.
Taitz said in the complaint that letters, e-mails and faxes to the Justice Department seeking answers have gone unreturned. “This game of hide and seek by the Attorney General Holder and US attorneys was infantile at best and treasonous at worst, and National Security is on the line,” Taitz writes.
The suit demands, among other things, that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton provide a copy of Obama’s birth certificate. The case has been assigned to Chief Judge Royce Lamberth.
