'Birther' Orly Taitz Suspects Fraud in Her Defeat

The U.S. Senate candidate says rigged voting machines may be to blame for her primary loss against incumbent Dianne Feinstein and challenger Elizabeth Emken.

Defeated U.S. Senate candidate Orly Taitz said Wednesday that her loss was likely caused by rigged voting machines.

Writing on her blog Wednesday morning, the Orange County resident said: "At the moment nobody has a clue how these machines are programmed. There is a high probability that different values were given to votes cast for different candidates."

Before the election, Taitz was responsible for the nation's high incumbency rate.

"How can it be that the members of Congress, which have an approval rating of 9 to 11 percent, can be reelected on average 90 percent of the time?" she said. "Something is very wrong with this system."

This was not the first time Taitz has claimed fraud in her bid for office. Two years ago, she lost to Damon Dunn during the Republican primary and then sued Dunn, claiming fraud.

At that time, the court said Taitz "provided no legal basis" to explain why her opponent's past voter registration constituted fraud.

Taitz is best known for her court case against the Social Security Administration, in which she attempted to prove that President Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen. That case was .

Taitz's blog suggested more lawsuits are on the way.

"I believe it is time to hold party officials and members of the media financially accountable for fraud, slander and defamation of my character," she wrote.

Taitz also claimed she was running fourth among 23 challengers for the U.S. Senate seat. According to official state results, Taitz placed 5th.

Bo Bo - To stop the confusion, that will be in Chinese Yuan ($US-377,000) because that is who we are borrowing the money from. They only thought that was fair since the cell phones are made in China and they don't want Orly Taitz suing them for damages when she rear ends Octomom in the I-5. Now if Diane Feinstein can get the US CIA to send the Sputnik virus to attack the Chinese computers, we can wipe out all accounts receivable and this will all be free, so no biggie.

Orly sees conspiracies everywhere because she's paranoid & delusional ! Before she starts complaining that she got cheated out of votes she should consider how many Democrats like myself voted for her in the primary so we could mock her until November ! How naive are you people ? What is the reason people are returned to Congress year after year despite it's historically low 10% rating by voters ? It's simple,most people think their Congressman or Senator is doing a fine job (after all they elected them) it's everyone elses representative especially those across the aisle who are screwing up the country ! Poor Elizabeth Emken drew the short straw & will be the GOP's sacrificial lamb come this November. The fact is California Republicans couldn't persuade anyone with more experience or name recognition to run. This is indicative of the disarray the shrinking California Republican Party is mired in with no one in statewide office & no stars on the horizon. Elizabeth's previous political career consists of a second place primary finish to the candidate who Democratic Congressman Jerry McNerney defeated in 2010. Perhaps she's a masochist,as her second place finish in the General Election is a certainty ! If a candidate looks like #2 & talks like #2 & walks like #2 & smells like #2 it's Elizabeth Emken !!!

All of a sudden there are all these people using aliases and talking trash. Did the Orange Juice Blog finally get shut down? Or the Dispatch? That would explain the influx...since the audience for both of those fear using their own names and standing for what they believe in...
Michael M. June 08, 2012 at 07:30 PM
Fortunately, elections are reasonable "Darwinistic" (for lack of a better phrase) - like chlorinating the candidate pools. As such, we have Orly "yes, the emails asking for your support ARE generated by spam companies" Tatiz earning a strong 5th place finish. Thank God. The best candidate may not always win, but the people generally get what they ask for. Of course, there is that warning about being careful what you ask for, because you might actually get it. As evidence, I offer you the ruling class of the formerly glorious State of California.
Michael M. June 08, 2012 at 07:38 PM
Honestly Dennis, when one examines the body of work Sacramento represents I am surprised it was only 113k. Ms. Tatiz is fairly representative of the state government - not in her viewpoints, but rather in her abject disconnection with reality. After all, we do have "Gov. Moonbeam" at the helm.
Joker Joe June 08, 2012 at 07:52 PM
I would take my chances on her rather than Jerry Brown. Been there and done that. Let me know what you think about him asking us to raise the state sales tax so they can waste more of the tax payers money.
Dan Avery June 08, 2012 at 08:15 PM
LOL Right on.
Michael M. June 08, 2012 at 08:31 PM
Bo Bo: I am no fan of Gov. Moonbeam. As a California native, I also suffered through him previously. But IMHO, the concept of mitigating one radically off-base politician with another just does not make sense. California needs an immediate influx of dedicated, pragmatic leadership which will focus on the long term recovery of a place I personally love. Unfortunately this sort of treasured, selfless leader is in short supply these days.
Dan Avery June 08, 2012 at 09:03 PM
"Unfortunately this sort of treasured, selfless leader is in short supply these days." This is true of not only this state, but also the nation. And for very good reasons. Why would anyone of quality subject themselves to running for office in this country? Our political races are nothing more than popularity contests and they are completely disconnected with the notion of governance. This, of course, scares the snot out of the rest of the world. Which everyone who has traveled in the last two decades realizes if they bothered to talk honestly with people in other countries.
Summer Hemphill June 08, 2012 at 09:52 PM
The people of California chose Governor Jerry Brown over Meg Whitman because of his experience,his moderate (comparatively speaking) agenda & his ability to get things done ! Of course Californians preferred legalized marijuana to Meg Whitman so at least their priorities are in the right place. No living Californian has served so many for so long in so many different offices so well as dedicated public servant Jerry Brown. Supporter or detractor you must admit Jerry has spent the majority of his life serving the people of California ! It's only those gullible right-wing lunatics who'd consider Orly even remotely qualified to vie for public office that further encourage her grandiose & self-delusional bids for public office ! Her "birther" notoriety & outrageous conspiracy theories make her one of the craziest & polarizing figures on the either the right or left of American politics. Interviewing her makes for entertaining television & she's always good for an ill-conceived quote or two. I'm sure she'll be running for another office soon & we can all certainly use the laughs !

Summer, welcome back - You might not know this, but when you dive into the MSNBC crapolla, sirens go off and everyone here gets free Farrell's Ice Cream. Thanks a bunch. And really love your love affair for Pete Stark. But the video is really creepy. He reminds me of Tricky Dick Nixon. One scary dude. An enemies list for REPORTERS. Someone flew over the coo coos nest. http://unioncity.patch.com/articles/congressman-stark-makes-an-accusation-but-can-t-back-it-up-again
Joker Joe June 11, 2012 at 04:36 PM
Jerry was elected because he smokes it. He does nothing to eliminate illegals. He is basically retired but on the public dole. My fellow Ca. citizens are lost in the past. How soon we forget mr. moon beam.
Joker Joe June 11, 2012 at 04:47 PM
Michael I agree in most part with you. Popularity contest. The citizens have little input but when you have 8 candidates for president and do not pick the best person for the job but instead pick the most popular one it is sad. But anyone then Obama is better than nothing. The Muslim is ruining this country.
Frieda Wales June 11, 2012 at 06:00 PM
Now we know for sure that delusion isn't limited to Ms. Taitz. Bo Bo, President Obama is not a Muslim. You are undermining your own legitimacy and your own statements by presenting this as reality. Tell me you are joking?
Sherrie GG June 12, 2012 at 03:16 PM
The only fraud committed here was by Orly Taitz. I'm embarrassed she got enough votes to even register a percentage, but it IS OC, after all.
Joker Joe June 12, 2012 at 03:25 PM
Until we realize I am not joking the masses will only fight the conspiracy theory. Ask yourself why did Hillary Clinton get appointed to the post of sect. of state? Give me your best response if you are interested. If not ignore this question. Tell me why the ag of the U.S. is suing states in order for them to stop illegals from entering the U.S.! Tell me why the MOST expensive route was devised to print money for the bank bailouts when they could of gotten out VERY cheaply. Tell me why in this country's entire history this is the first ever downgrade of our credit rating! Tell me how many of your children are named Hussein? I could go on and on but your excuse for all this and more, if you do not believe, is like Fox news like to say. Mistakes, errors, does not understand, etc. This Muslim understands it all. He is not making mistakes. He is more intelligent than all of you combined. http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=tCAffMSWSzY#t=28

Bobo.... no answers will suit you. I see that now. I am not trying to avoid your questions, but I am pretty sure my Return on Investment in this discussion will have little payoff if you are so convinced. Have a great day. :)
Joker Joe June 12, 2012 at 03:41 PM
You do not have to convince me of anything. You make an accusation,(delusional), and then when you do not have answers you cut off the discussion. Kinda like the Salem witch hunt trials. Have a great day...
Frieda Wales June 12, 2012 at 03:55 PM
Bobo.... the ball is in your court. Enough civil and private entities AND the supreme court have decided that this is not a legitimate issue. Instead of asking questions, you need to provide legitimate proof that what you say is true. Yes, insistence in the face of so much evidence to the contrary appears delusional.
Joker Joe June 12, 2012 at 03:58 PM
Pacific Coast Mama What are you talking about? I asked for your comments. If you are not well versed in the subject matter I asked you about I can understand that!! Most people are not.
Frieda Wales June 12, 2012 at 04:03 PM
Comments on what? I didn't look at your links. I presumed they were conspiracy theories of the same nature. I am commenting on Orly Taitz being delusional in her claims both of Obama's citizenship status and, now, voter fraud. Those that insist that her claims are legitimate appear delusional to me because of so much evidence that says otherwise.
Joker Joe June 12, 2012 at 04:14 PM
At least you kept an open mind not looking at the link..... lol lol That is the way it is. No one wants to believe. You avoid my questions because it is easier to accuse than use that gray matter.
Joker Joe June 12, 2012 at 04:20 PM
No,No.No. You said I was delusional about Bo being a Muslim. Quit trying to change the story, or it is dementia....?
Frieda Wales June 12, 2012 at 04:24 PM
Bobo, why don't you give me the answers to your "questions"? I have nothing to prove here, but you seem to want to prove a lot, so please, go ahead.
met00 June 12, 2012 at 04:44 PM
Not joking PC Mama... nutcase, maybe.. Bobo answers: "Ask yourself why did Hillary Clinton get appointed to the post of sect. of state?" She, Biden and Obama are all corporatists, like her husband. They are the three seats of power (Holder is the fourth, and let's not forget Berneke) and they represent corporate interests before individuals. "Tell me why the ag of the U.S. is suing states in order for them to stop illegals from entering the U.S.!" Because corporate interests WANT cheep labour. It's the same reason the law doesn't really punish the employer for hiring them when they are caught doing it. If the law was changed so that the penalty was $1MM for the first and it doubled every time thereafter, there would be no jobs and they would stop coming across the border. "Tell me why the MOST expensive route was devised to print money for the bank bailouts when they could of gotten out VERY cheaply." Ask George Bush II. King Georgie is the one who bailed out the banks. "Tell me why in this country's entire history this is the first ever downgrade of our credit rating!" The GOP refused to do a damn thing to help the economy because doing so would help Obama get re-elected and their only goal is to stop Obama (per their own leadership) "Tell me how many of your children are named Hussein?" Mine are both named Nguyen as their middle name. I must be a secret Vietnamese Commi! Bobo, thanks again for making Orly appear sane.
Frieda Wales June 12, 2012 at 04:48 PM
Bobo, Yes, anyone who is still promoting Orly Tait's theories AND/OR theories that he is Muslim (and a lot of other conspiracy theories about the UN, etc.) appear delusional to me.
Joker Joe June 12, 2012 at 04:50 PM
I am not asking you to prove anything. It is so easy to accuse someone of being delusional. All it takes is a comment.
met00 June 12, 2012 at 04:52 PM
PC Mama, bobo just hates the black man in power. He's a Faux News junkie and thinks Glen Beck is sane. About 10% across the country are just like him. Rabid, foaming at the mouth, and ready to do anything to stop the black man in power. Reality doesn't stop them. He provides his birth certificate, they demand his college transcripts. Give it up Mama, Bobo needs his conspiracies, they are the only thing that allows him to get up and face the day with hope. Facts that get in the way of them are ignored, and any fact that can be twisted to support them will be. Occasionally he has to be debunked, because if you don't debunk the BS some reader might actually believe it (thus the reason for my answers above). But debunk him and move on, because you can't have a conversation with him since like any true believer (ex: Scientologist) he needs his BS because it has become a great part of his personal identity. It's now a part of "who he is" and he will defend it to the death (even if it makes no sense to the sane).
Frieda Wales June 12, 2012 at 05:02 PM
Thank you Bobo for your continued responses. Met00 thank you for the reminder that it is futile. I attempted to stay away, but failed. Have a great day.
Joker Joe June 12, 2012 at 05:43 PM
