UPHELD: Orly Taitz' Fine For Being Crazy

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a $20,000 frivolous lawsuit judgment against birther loon Orly Taitz, who was sanctioned for filing suits intended to prove President Obama is not an American citizen.
Taitz’ appeal stems from a suit filed on behalf of Capt. Connie Rhodes, who argued in September that Barack Obama’s presidency wasn’t legitimate and that she shouldn’t be deployed. U.S. District Court Judge Clay Land dismissed that suit Sept. 16, telling Taitz that she could face sanctions if she ever again filed a “frivolous” suit in his court. Taitz then filed a motion for emergency stay, and Land gave her two weeks to explain why he shouldn’t sanction her $10,000. On the deadline, Taitz, who no longer represented the captain, responded with a motion to recuse Land from the case and a request to extend her deadline. Land denied the motions and sanctioned her $20,000. He later ordered the U.S. Attorney’s Office to collect.
Taitz says the she has no intention of paying the fine. She is looking forward to being jailed as an example of the lengths the Obama administration will do to in order to "suppress the truth."
