HEARING SCHEDULED TO BEGIN AT PRESS-TIME
by Sharon Rondeau
(Nov. 18, 2011) — The Concord Monitor is reporting that four members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives have stated that in their opinion, Obama’s short- and long-form birth certificates are forgeries.
The reporter has called Orly Taitz, the attorney who filed a complaint with the New Hampshire attorney general and secretary of state, a “birther,” a term which has been used by the newspaper previously by describing one of the representatives as having “planted the seeds of controversy” by questioning Obama’s constitutional eligibility for the presidency.
Gardner had reportedly referred Rappaport’s concerns to the New Hampshire attorney general, who apparently took no action.
Rappaport, representing the Coos-1 district in the New Hampshire House, had brought his concerns about Obama’s eligibility to the attorney general and secretary of state in 2008 after becoming a plaintiff in one of Taitz’s lawsuits that same year. Rep. Carol Vita of the Strafford-3 district had joined him. Vita and Rappaport had questioned whether or not Obama was a “natural born Citizen” as required by Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution and had cited Obama’s alleged use of “multiple social security numbers.”
Taitz filed a lawsuit after she was denied information through the Freedom of Information Act in regard to the application for which the social security number which Obama is using was granted. After Judge Royce Lamberth of the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC denied Taitz’s request to see the application, he commented that it “was not her lucky day.”
Accornero, who represents Laconia in the New Hampshire House, has publicly accused Obama of treason over his immigration and economic policies.
