Orly Taitz has done the seemingly impossible: Found a client to represent who is even more of a raging nutball than she is. She’s filed a lawsuit on behalf of Keith Russell Judd seeking an order to prevent the electoral college from certifying President Obama as the winner of the election.
Dentist and lawyer Orly Taitz is suing Vice President Joe Biden and the U.S. Congress to stop the Electoral College from re-electing President Barack Obama. She made the announcement Wednesday on her website.
Taitz is representing federal prison inmate Keith Judd in the case filed before the U.S. District Court in Sacramento Monday.
Who is Keith Judd? Oh boy, you’re gonna love this. He’s in federal prison right now after being convicted on two counts of “mailing a threatening communication with intent to extort money or something of value.” He’s serving a 17 year sentence. According to Wikipedia, he’s filed 36 appeals of his conviction, none of them successful. While in prison, he ran against Obama in the West Virginia Democratic primary earlier this year and got more than 40% of the vote. That’s the basis of the lawsuit, that he would have won if Obama was ineligible to be on the ballot.
And as Dana Milbank notes, Judd “goes by the nickname “Dark Priest” and has an extremely long mullet” and “lists himself as a past member of the Federation of Super Heroes.” So he’s got that going for him, which is nice. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship, but a very short court case. Like every other case Taitz files, it will be dismissed almost immediately.
