Orly Taitz Tries to Stop Cremation of Hawaiian Official Who Verified Obama's Birth Certificate

As close readers know, South County attorney/dentist/real estate saleslady Orly Taitz has proven to be pretty flippin' nuts when it comes to her quixotic legal quest to remove Barack Obama as president on grounds he was not born in the United States.

But she has now managed to top (lower?) herself, suing a funeral home to stop the cremation of a Hawaiian state official who released Obama's birth certificate and died in a recent plane crash.

At the request of Obama, who was attempting to make birthers like Taitz and Donald Trump crawl back under their rocks, state of Hawaii health director Loretta Fuddy in April 2011 certified that the president's birth certificate from an Aloha State hospital was authentic.

On Dec. 11, 65-year-old Fuddy was the lone fatality from a plane carrying a pilot and eight passengers that went down in the water a half mile off Molokai. Cue the right wing conspiracy theorists (oxymoron?) who are now casting Fuddy as the Obama Administration's Vince Foster (or, as World Net Daily put it, "Did Loretta Fuddy Get 'Ron Browned'").

Cue Orly Taitz.

According to her own have-another-peanut-butter-geez-lady-yer-a-nutter website, she filed an emergency petition in a Hawaiian court Friday to stop Fuddy's cremation, which Taitz conceded may have already happened anyway.

The rationale for this unusual court move, as explained on the site and in court documents, is that because Fuddy was the only person to die, there is mystery surrounding the crash that could point to an Obama attempt to permanently silence someone who knows the president is secretly foreign (and, thus, constitutionally forbidden to be commander-in-chief).

Keeping Fuddy's body on ice could give Taitz time to prove Obama was behind her death, she reasons. But Hawaii's chief judge, obviously in no mood for this shit, threw the case out minutes after it was docketed. That, of course, sets the judge up to be the next target of Rancho Santa Margarita-based Taitz, who is already holding out a virtual hand for online donations so she can file still more legal funny papers related to Fuddy's demise.

As she had in the early months of the last Republican presidential primary process, Taitz is getting an assist in stirring her latest Russian nut-flavored borscht from Donald Trump, who tweeted a day after Fuddy's death, "How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama's 'birth certificate' died in plane crash today. All others lived."
