Court Denies Orly Taitz Election Fraud Claim

The Mission Viejo dentist's Republican rival for secretary of state did not commit fraud because he once registered as a Democrat, according to the court.

Mission Viejo dentist Orly Taitz has lost another high-profile court battle. An appeals court issued its decision Tuesday that Taitz was not the victim of voter fraud or election fraud in her 2010 battle against fellow Republican opponent Damon Dunn.

Taitz and Dunn were competing for the Republican nomination for secretary of state. Taitz lost to Dunn on June 8 during the Republican primary and then sued Dunn June 17, claiming fraud. Dunn later lost to incumbent democrat Debra Bowen.

Taitz made headlines last year for . She , too.

In the most recent case, Taitz claimed Dunn ran against her unfairly because he had voted as a democrat in Florida in the past. She called this "fraud," but the court disagreed.

According to the 18-page court statement, Taitz failed to prove Dunn was required to state past voter registration when running for office.

The statment says Taitz "provided no legal basis to explain why Dunn's voter registration card had any relevancy to his eligibility as a candidate."

Taitz sued Dunn for the $40,000 it cost her to run her campaign for secretary of state. The court denied the claim. An earlier court held that "there does not appear to be any private right by a losing candidate to sue the winning candidate to recover for monies expended in running for election" even if fraud was involved, which was not proven.

How much nitrous oxide has this moron inhaled ? Someone needs to see if it in fact causes cumulative brain damage to dentists ! Unfortunately she represents a large faction of the Republican Party,apparently those who can't read & shouldn't be allowed to vote because of their limited intellectual capabilities !!! At least she's not a witch !!! Would you allow this confused woman to stick her fingers in your mouth ? Of course not,she's crazy !!!

Don't spin this into this broad representing "a large faction of the Republican Party." Just stating that alone, makes you sound less intelligent.
Summer Hemphill May 03, 2012 at 01:17 AM
The fact that she's your "broad" is just another example of how you Republicans disrespect women & their rights on a daily basis !!! I called her several less than complimentary names,but never did it occur to me to interject her gender into the conversation !! I'm sure there are some intelligent Republicans somewhere because they've duped the rest of you into supporting their asinine agenda !!! Try being less of a Dick,Dick !!!

Hey Dick Hemphill, the joke is on you. Orly Taitz is not a real person. If you look very closely, you will see the person in the photo is Cohen (aka Borat Sadiyev). Prove me wrong!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacha_Baron_Cohen
Brash Brazen May 03, 2012 at 04:44 AM
Any similarity between the images of Orly Taitz & the British actor Sasha Baron Cohen appears to be purely incidental !
Yeparoo May 03, 2012 at 05:10 AM
Never been seen together. Isn't that a little curious? Then the whole birth certificate bit. Straight out of the Phil Hendrie play book. Next thing you know, people react thinking this is REAL. Give me a break. I am not convinced!

If this is true....WHAT A WASTE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS!! So sad we have so many, uninformed, sue happy people in our country...what ever party.
Summer Hemphill May 03, 2012 at 04:27 PM
Look at the bright side,with her legal expertise she could have been running for Attorney General !!! California law says that those who are mentally incompetent can be denied the right to vote,it's a pity that they can't be prevented from running for office too !!!

Betty, you're being had here. Summer Hemphill and Dick Jones are not real people. This is all a put on. I mean, come on, "Summer" "Hemphill." If those aren't names straight out of central casting, I don't know what is. She is playing the role of want-a-be hippie from Berkley. Strumming her guitar, sitting under a tree, wearing a dress made out of sustainable "marijuana" fabric, commando style no doubt. Then gets all democrat upset over a fictional character (a 'dentist' - wink-wink out to prove Obama is an alien). It only gets better with Dick Jones. When was the last time you heard the term "broad" referring to a woman? Right, Andrew Dice Clay. A knuckle dragging right winger, if only he were smart enough to be a right winger. Badda Bing, Badda Boom !! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWzI_Wn0ZwM Totally made up stuff.

Orly Taitz is running in this years June primary to unseat Senator Diane Feinstein. If you think she's as funny as I do vote for her over Elizabeth Emken,the likely Republican challenger. That way she can continue to embarass her chosen party thru the November election.

Yeparoo is a Hebrew term for putz ...
Yeparoo May 04, 2012 at 07:01 AM
Hey Bong Satvia, why don't you stay at home in Jersey and leave us alone out here in Cali. You are a little slow on the uptake. This whole "Orly Taitz" thing is not real. You might be 'hung' up on the whole "putz - dick, dick" thing, but we are not amused out here in the OC. Trust me, the OC has invented the Marijuana Vending machine and you will soon be out of business with your bong carrying cases.
Frank Mockery May 05, 2012 at 01:02 AM
I'll bet if you stuck an enema nozzle in the Lake Forest City Council chambers you'd have a good start at flushing the Republicans out of Southern California. The "OC" ? Yeah,fer sure,fer sure dudes !
Alberto Barrera May 05, 2012 at 02:41 AM
Move along, it's just the right-wing version of Gloria Alred, nothing to see here.
Yeparoo May 05, 2012 at 06:13 AM
Mr. Barrera, you may be correct about “right wing” thing. But I submit to you the fictional character known as Orly Taitz is actually a “left winger,” pretending to be a “right winger.” I am 99% sure that I could be right on this and can offer facts to back this up. (1% chance that she is crazy smart, but we won’t know about this for 100 years). And nobody has disproven the Cohen - Borat conspiracy, which isn’t my job to do. I have done some WWW research and would ask you to consider the following about the person claiming to be Orly Taitz: Born in Moldavia, a member state of the former USSSR Emigrated to Israel (I think she may have trained to be a double agent, possibly triple agent) Emigrated to California Married in Las Vegas to Latvian (yet another former USSSR member state) Claims to be a Dentist Claims to be a Real Estate Broker Claims to be a Lawyer Claims to be a expert Obama “Birther” Someone put her name on the California Attorney General ballot Someone put her name on the ballot for United States Senator Believed to have 3 children OBVIOUSLY, this cannot all be true. Seems like an “inflated” resume that should be causing red flags. And a big NO-NO for right wingers is having a career while raising children. She is claiming to have at least 5 careers. Funny thing is, the 'Bob Marley' fan club is so busy toking their grass clippings, they chime in scared too death she is real and will kick Obama's out of the White House - LMAO

Orly Taitz is a buffoon & the Republicans worst nightmare as she represents a sizable number of the clueless tea party types which are leading their party off a cliff ! Give these boobs a forum & a little bit of publicity & there's no shutting them up or moderating their irrational beliefs & behavior ! Let's hope she beats Elizabeth Emken in the primary election as this woman will be comedy gold until at least November !
Yeparoo May 08, 2012 at 04:10 AM
Emken? Never heard of her. But Thanks for the post regarding the "republican" primary. You must be quite the political junkie. If it were not for your post, no one in California would know about this. I'll look that up to see if that is in 2012. Diane Feinstein is the Republicanish senator here, we really don't need an Emken. Besides, California isn't interested in Repub primaries. What we are watching is if Nadya Suleman will be dethroned by Dania Londono Suarez. In the boob dept, Octomom has met her match. Suarez is everything Nadya cannot be. Calif cannot afford to lose Suarez to NY or FL

The retardation of Moldavian born Taitz.She is beyond LOON.
carol dijkhuyzen June 05, 2012 at 01:05 PM
