Orange County dentist and attorney Orly Taitz's challenge to President Barack Obama's eligibility to have his name appear on the Kansas ballot this November has been delayed indefinitely.
District Court Judge Larry Hendricks in Shawnee County, Kansas said confusion about who was being represented in the case prompted him to delay the challenge, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal. Taitz says Obama has not sufficiently proven his U.S. citizenship and is therefore inelligible for office.
Taitz originally filed suit Sept. 20 and said she represented registered voter Roger Walters of Kansas, the TCJ said. But she later said she represented only herself, leaving the judge confused about the proper jurisdiction of the case.
On her website, Taitz said she received "a huge box with papers from the state to read and respond," and that she expects to respond to the judge's concerns sooner than the 21 days she's been given.
She also solicited her political supporters for technical help: "I can attach files on desk top (sic), but lap top (sic) is still messed up, need help."
Earlier this year, Taitz ran for U.S. Senate against Dianne Feinstein and lost. She said she suspected voter fraud when she was defeated.
Taitz is a Rancho Santa Margarita dentist living in Laguna Niguel who formerly practiced dentistry in Mission Viejo. She was admitted to the state bar in 2002 after taking correspondence law classes from William Howard Taft University in Santa Ana.
