Orly Taitz, the candidate

The "queen of the Birthers" (a name I think the Orange County newspapers deserve credit for), now a candidate for the GOP nomination for California of Secretary of State, sits for a pro forma interview with local ABC News.

The video is here, although I can't find a way to embed it, and it's interesting to watch a dressed-down Taitz avoid the topic that really motivates her -- the quest to prove that Barack Obama is not a citizen. She refers to her "34 trips all over the nation, flying red eye, meeting with election officials, FBI agents, assistant attorney generals, state representatives - discussing massive elections fraud and brainstorming solutions to clean up elections," without noting that this was to inform said legal officials that Obama needed to be ousted. (She also announces that she has joined the International Criminal Court.)

Here's her full candidate questionnaire, which addresses the important issues:

ABC: What steps would you take to improve voter turnout in California?

TAITZ: I would like to start a program Your vote is precious where retirees and other volunteers can go to schools and talk to students about value of voting and danger of de facto losing your vote when elections are highjacked in a coup d'etat

Neither Taitz nor her mainstream GOP opponent is expected to beat incumbent Democrat Debra Bowen, although having Taitz on the ticket would be an obvious embarrassment for the state GOP.
