Orly Taitz, Bill Hunt to Speak to OC Federation of Republican Women Tomorrow
Dr. Taitz just snuck into this one.

Dr. Orly Taitz is under investigation by the California state bar, has been fined by a federal judge, has been accused of asking witnesses to lie, and continues to espouse a discredited legal theories using discredited "evidence."
She has also been invited to speak to the Orange County Federation of Republican Women.
Tomorrow, she'll be on the bill at the group's monthly meeting alongside would-be-OC-sheriff Bill Hunt.
It makes a certain amount of sense. Hunt is fringiest (it's sort of a word!) of the three Republicans in the race for sheriff. Crazy Arizona sheriff dude Joe Arapaio has campaigned for him, and OC anti-immigrant head priestess Barbara Coe, as we see above, likes him a whole lot--and Hunt was scheduled to speak at a recent meeting of her California Coalition for Immigration Reform. Neither of those figures, though, seems quite as unhinged as Taitz, who recently appealed to the U.N. for protection and has accused the media of committing "hate crimes" against her.
Taitz, on her blog, has supported Hunt. She keeps decrying the fact that law enforcement doesn't take seriously her claims about Obama, nor her claims about assassination attempts from Obama's operatives. For some reason, she seems to think that Hunt would be the cop who finally listens to her.
Registration for the meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Costa Mesa Country Club. Unfortunately, OCFRW's VP of Programs Karla Downing told us that the press isn't invited. Apparently, you have to have earned some sort of superlative--like "world's worst lawyer"--to get in.
