“Birther Queen” Orly Taitz Endorses Van Tran (CA-47)

Good news for Republican congressional candidate Van Tran (CA-047) – he scored a monster endorsement from ‘Birther Queen’ Orly Taitz.

Taitz, of course, is best known for her tireless crusade against President Obama and the fact that he was born in the United States.  Taitz touts her website as the “world’s leading Obama eligibility challenge web site.”

But Orly Taitz has also explored other interesting and compelling issues such as FEMA’s construction of internment camps for “anti-Obama dissidents” or Hugo Chavez’s purchase of the software that runs many American voting machines or that the vaccine developed to treat the avian flu actually kills people.

“Van Tran’s politics have certainly attracted some unusual supporters,” said Andy Stone, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Van Tran’s coveted endorsement by ‘Birther Queen’ Orly Taitz comes on the heels of his endorsement from the Tea Party Express, a group that has espoused offensive racist and anti-Semitic views.  In addition to Tran owing Orange County voters an explanation about his support for the radical, out of touch Tea Party/Sharron Angle agenda like privatizing Social Security and deregulating Big Oil, now he’s got to explain his backing from the nation’s leading birther.”
