Taitz Loses Badly in Senatorial Primary

With the nation’s attention focused on the recall in California, few noticed that birther queen Orly Taitz lost her primary election badly on Tuesday. She was seeking the Republican nomination to challenge Dianne Feinstein in November, but she got only 3.1% of the vote. And she’s blaming the California Republican party for endorsing her opponent:

I would like to take this opportunity to expose 24 corrupt CAGop board members, who sold the endorsement to Emken on the first day of the campaign and prevented me and others from addressing the county central committees. They endorsed Emken, when they had results of 2010 election, where I got 537,000 votes in my race and Emken got only 11,000 in her race. CAGOP board ran a sham endorsement process, where they charged each candidate 500 under false pretenses, when they already made a decision and told several candidates not to bother to even show up at the endorsement meeting, as the decision was already made. I was not even told that I could come to the endorsement meeting and address the board. Dirty politics as usual. a number of candidates are planning to meet and discuss further strategies, as to what to do to end this corruption on the CA GOP board.

These corrupt board members listed this endorsement in 17 million sample ballots that were sent to voters. That did the trick. The voters looked in the sample ballot at the names of party endorsed candidates and marked them. Until and unless we remove all of the corrupt party bosses and go to paper ballots, where votes can be actually counted and verified, we would never have clean elections and we would have the same corrupt puppets in positions of power destroying this country and destroying our lives.

It’s a conspiracy to keep crazy people from running for office!

    Actually, the recall election was in Wisconsin.

    [Thinks back over recent Republican presidential candidates and congresscritter wannabes.Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin, R. Perry, Herman Caine, Christine O'Donnell, Inhofe, etc ..]

    Hmm not a very effective conspiracy that ‘un.

    On the glass-half-empty side, she did come in fourth out of 24 candidates…so there are plenty of nuts here in California. (I didn’t vote for any of ‘em…)

    Hmm. I voted in that election… On a paper ballot. I guess it’s county by county here in CA? I would have assumed that sort of thing was all dictated by some state commission.

    It’s funny how she blames everyone but herself, isn’t it?

    Did she just say that the Republican party is corrupt and practices dirty politics? Because while that’s not surprising news or anything, it is unusual to see one of them actually admitting it. So, credit where credit’s due – she deserves points for honesty here.

    Well, Orly if they are willing to commit conspiracy to keep you out then you have to ask yourself whether politics is right for you. They obviously want to run the candidate that they feel has the best chance of victory and you didn’t make the cut.

    Not the I like Dianne Feinstein, and not that her seat is in any danger, but since I like the Republicans even less, I am quite disappointed that Taitz didn’t win this primary.

    How many days before she sues someone for her loss?
    I saw her name AT THE BOTTOM of the ballot. Surely that’s worth a day in court!

    Okay, I’m completely ignorant on the California primary process, county committees, and party endorsements. And her accusations make little sense to me, as written. So – Taitz’s well-known insanity aside, does she have a point? Were her chances to win unfairly reduced by party machinations? After all, even paranoids have enemies. And it was clearly in the CA GOP’s best interest to keep her from winning the primary, lest she guarantee a loss in the general election. Considering Lugar’s loss in Indiana, Taitz winning this one didn’t seem entirely out-of-the-question for me.

    Anyone more familiar with CA politics have an opinion? Is this one more example (along with the anti-Paul tactics they used in Louisiana and elsewhere) of the Republicans opposing the basics of democracy, even within their own party system?

    @BobApril

    I was thinking the same thing. But with what I’ve seen of Republican primary procedures and Orly Taitz, I doubt I want to stress my brain to figure it out.

    I just hope she sues, or manages to provide us with some sort of continuing entertainment.

    I’m still amazed that 3% of California republicans thought running with as their Senate candidate was a good idea.

    Of course, her loss is playing out exactly as I predicted: She’s blaming others for rigging the system against her. Next up, she will file a lawsuit to get the results invalidated. It’s only a question of what insane delusions she’ll pick for her pretext.

    The latest three posts from her blog:

    1) A title for Pulitzer prize entry: Orly Taitz, investigation of ObamaForgeryGate and criminal complicity of high ranking officials and judges in a crime of the century

    2) A Pulitzer Prize wouldnt be enough to thank Orly for saving the republic. She needs to be on Supreme Court. Tell Romney to offer this to you and he will get millions of extra votes.

    3) I am flying 3 people to to appear at the hearing in Indiana and need to pay the hotel fees. Donations to cover expenses are greatly needed and greatly appreciated.

    The good thing about having supporters this deluded — they don’t complain when you keep hitting them up for money.

    The nutter candidate said:

    … and go to paper ballots, where votes can be actually counted and verified …

    I realize that she and reality parted ways many, many years ago, but sheesh. I voted in Los Angeles County on a paper ballot.

    One point: This is an open primary, so she was not just dissed by the GOP but by every voter in the state (well, except for the idiot 3.1%) I thought about voting for her, just out of a sense of mischief, but decided that crushing humiliation would be just as effective as giving false hope.

    We now have a runoff between Diane Feinstein and Elizabeth Emken — Emken has been associated with the anti-vax Autism Speaks. Oh joy.
