'Birther' Orly Taitz Suspects Fraud in Her Defeat

The U.S. Senate candidate says rigged voting machines may be to blame for her primary loss against incumbent Dianne Feinstein and challenger Elizabeth Emken.

Defeated U.S. Senate candidate Orly Taitz said Wednesday that her loss was likely caused by rigged voting machines.

Writing on her blog Wednesday morning, the Orange County resident said: "At the moment nobody has a clue how these machines are programmed. There is a high probability that different values were given to votes cast for different candidates."

Before the election, Taitz was responsible for the nation's high incumbency rate.

"How can it be that the members of Congress, which have an approval rating of 9 to 11 percent, can be reelected on average 90 percent of the time?" she said. "Something is very wrong with this system."

This was not the first time Taitz has claimed fraud in her bid for office. Two years ago, she lost to Damon Dunn during the Republican primary and then sued Dunn, claiming fraud.

At that time, the court said Taitz "provided no legal basis" to explain why her opponent's past voter registration constituted fraud.

Taitz is best known for her court case against the Social Security Administration, in which she attempted to prove that President Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen. That case was .

Taitz's blog suggested more lawsuits are on the way.

"I believe it is time to hold party officials and members of the media financially accountable for fraud, slander and defamation of my character," she wrote.

Taitz also claimed she was running fourth among 23 challengers for the U.S. Senate seat. According to official state results, Taitz placed 5th.

Bobo, Yes, anyone who is still promoting Orly Tait's theories AND/OR theories that he is Muslim (and a lot of other conspiracy theories about the UN, etc.) appear delusional to me.

I am not asking you to prove anything. It is so easy to accuse someone of being delusional. All it takes is a comment.

PC Mama, bobo just hates the black man in power. He's a Faux News junkie and thinks Glen Beck is sane. About 10% across the country are just like him. Rabid, foaming at the mouth, and ready to do anything to stop the black man in power. Reality doesn't stop them. He provides his birth certificate, they demand his college transcripts. Give it up Mama, Bobo needs his conspiracies, they are the only thing that allows him to get up and face the day with hope. Facts that get in the way of them are ignored, and any fact that can be twisted to support them will be. Occasionally he has to be debunked, because if you don't debunk the BS some reader might actually believe it (thus the reason for my answers above). But debunk him and move on, because you can't have a conversation with him since like any true believer (ex: Scientologist) he needs his BS because it has become a great part of his personal identity. It's now a part of "who he is" and he will defend it to the death (even if it makes no sense to the sane).

Thank you Bobo for your continued responses. Met00 thank you for the reminder that it is futile. I attempted to stay away, but failed. Have a great day.
