Interesting tidbit from montrealais:
"Birther" lawyer fined $20K for frivolously wasting the court's time (another news story about it here). Both links contain the actual 43-page opinion, which is quite scathing.
"The 'Birther queen' has been slapped with a five-figure fine for 'wasting the judicial resources' of the Middle District of Georgia, where she'd filed one of her numerous lawsuits demanding that President Obama prove his citizenship before deploying soldiers to Iraq and Afghanistan.
'The Court finds that counsel’s conduct was willful and not merely negligent. It demonstrates bad faith on her part. As an attorney, she is deemed to have known better. She owed a duty to follow the rules and to respect the Court. Counsel's pattern of conduct conclusively establishes that she did not mistakenly violate a provision of law. She knowingly violated Rule 11. Her response to the Court's show cause order is breathtaking in its arrogance and borders on delusional. She expresses no contrition or regret regarding her misconduct. To the contrary, she continues her baseless attacks on the Court.'"
Aw, poor little birthers. No doubt the radical right will all rally to her cause and contribute to her fine and lift her up as a martyr, but it doesn't change the fact that Obama is still the President. (Hey, at least he didn't steal it - this time it actually WAS a "mandate from the people!")
