FROM ORLY TAITZ, ESQ.
by Sharon Rondeau
(Nov. 16, 2011) — The Post & Email has just spoken with Atty. Orly Taitz, who has been told by the secretary of the New Hampshire Election Board that her complaint filed on Monday will have a hearing on Friday, November 18, 2011 in Concord at 2:00 p.m. The hearing is open to the public.
The street address is 33 North State Street, Concord, NH 03301, Room 307. The Legislative Office Building is located behind the State House.
Taitz posted the news on her website just prior to contacting The Post & Email.
The website of the New Hampshire Attorney General states that written complaints must be acted upon within 90 days of receipt and that “Federal complaints receive priority because of the time deadline imposed by Federal law.” The blank complaint form is here.
Taitz did not know if Obama or his representative will be attending the hearing. New Hampshire State Representative Harry Accornero has informed Taitz that he will be present on Friday when, as Taitz was informed, a five-member panel will evaluate “whether to keep Obama off the ballot in NH.”
It is Taitz’s understanding that there will not be a time limit imposed by the Elections Board for her to air her complaint, which alleges that the birth certificate Obama presented to the public on April 27, 2011 is fraudulent and that he is using a social security number issued in the state of Connecticut which was never assigned to him.
Taitz stated that she would appreciate any frequent flyer miles which people could donate as well as funds for a rental car. As a matter of course, she takes the “red-eye” to save money while flying. She is uncertain whether she will return to California on Friday evening after the hearing or stay overnight in New Hampshire. She stated, “I would greatly appreciate, if as many supporters as possible come to the hearing. Also, all the travel is extremely expensive. every trip of just 2 days travel costs me about $1,000, which includes airplane tickets, car rental, one night hotel. That does not take into account all of the days of missed work, so I really need your support in donations and in frequent flier miles and hotel and car rental points.”
The Post & Email will inquire as to whether or not the hearing may be audio- or video-recorded.
New Hampshire was the first American colony to declare its independence from Great Britain in 1776. It possesses “one of the largest representative bodies in the English-speaking world, with 24 senators and 400 representatives.”
Some have characterized Taitz’s complaint as taking advantage of a “loophole” in New Hampshire election laws because it “allows anyone to challenge a candidate on the ballot. You do not have to be a resident of NH.” Taitz is calling for citizens to complete complaint forms and fax them to 603-271-6316.
Update, November 17, 2011: The Post & Email has confirmed via Orly Taitz’s website and a statement directly from New Hampshire Rep. Laurence Rappaport that he has joined Tatiz’s election complaint and will be present at the hearing on Friday, November 18.
