Birther activist Orly Taitz was fired by her client Army Captain Connie Rhodes on Friday (Taitz had filed a request for an emergency stay against Rhodes’s deployment to Iraq on the grounds that the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces was not entitled to hold office). Rhodes wrote a letter to the judge in which she withdrew the request, denied that Taitz was authorized to speak for her, and stated her intention to file a complaint against her. Taitz’s response? There is a conspiracy against both her and her ex-client–the letter (like Obama’s birth certificate) is an obvious forgery. The signature looks funny and the Office Max it was sent from doesn’t do faxes. “It appears to be a concerted effort to quash all free speech, particularly any legal challenges to Obama’s legitimacy,” Taitz says.
