Court Denies Orly Taitz Election Fraud Claim

The Mission Viejo dentist's Republican rival for secretary of state did not commit fraud because he once registered as a Democrat, according to the court.

Mission Viejo dentist Orly Taitz has lost another high-profile court battle. An appeals court issued its decision Tuesday that Taitz was not the victim of voter fraud or election fraud in her 2010 battle against fellow Republican opponent Damon Dunn.

Taitz and Dunn were competing for the Republican nomination for secretary of state. Taitz lost to Dunn on June 8 during the Republican primary and then sued Dunn June 17, claiming fraud. Dunn later lost to incumbent democrat Debra Bowen.

Taitz made headlines last year for . She , too.

In the most recent case, Taitz claimed Dunn ran against her unfairly because he had voted as a democrat in Florida in the past. She called this "fraud," but the court disagreed.

According to the 18-page court statement, Taitz failed to prove Dunn was required to state past voter registration when running for office.

The statment says Taitz "provided no legal basis to explain why Dunn's voter registration card had any relevancy to his eligibility as a candidate."

Taitz sued Dunn for the $40,000 it cost her to run her campaign for secretary of state. The court denied the claim. An earlier court held that "there does not appear to be any private right by a losing candidate to sue the winning candidate to recover for monies expended in running for election" even if fraud was involved, which was not proven.

Mr. Barrera, you may be correct about “right wing” thing. But I submit to you the fictional character known as Orly Taitz is actually a “left winger,” pretending to be a “right winger.” I am 99% sure that I could be right on this and can offer facts to back this up. (1% chance that she is crazy smart, but we won’t know about this for 100 years). And nobody has disproven the Cohen - Borat conspiracy, which isn’t my job to do. I have done some WWW research and would ask you to consider the following about the person claiming to be Orly Taitz: Born in Moldavia, a member state of the former USSSR Emigrated to Israel (I think she may have trained to be a double agent, possibly triple agent) Emigrated to California Married in Las Vegas to Latvian (yet another former USSSR member state) Claims to be a Dentist Claims to be a Real Estate Broker Claims to be a Lawyer Claims to be a expert Obama “Birther” Someone put her name on the California Attorney General ballot Someone put her name on the ballot for United States Senator Believed to have 3 children OBVIOUSLY, this cannot all be true. Seems like an “inflated” resume that should be causing red flags. And a big NO-NO for right wingers is having a career while raising children. She is claiming to have at least 5 careers. Funny thing is, the 'Bob Marley' fan club is so busy toking their grass clippings, they chime in scared too death she is real and will kick Obama's out of the White House - LMAO

Orly Taitz is a buffoon & the Republicans worst nightmare as she represents a sizable number of the clueless tea party types which are leading their party off a cliff ! Give these boobs a forum & a little bit of publicity & there's no shutting them up or moderating their irrational beliefs & behavior ! Let's hope she beats Elizabeth Emken in the primary election as this woman will be comedy gold until at least November !

Emken? Never heard of her. But Thanks for the post regarding the "republican" primary. You must be quite the political junkie. If it were not for your post, no one in California would know about this. I'll look that up to see if that is in 2012. Diane Feinstein is the Republicanish senator here, we really don't need an Emken. Besides, California isn't interested in Repub primaries. What we are watching is if Nadya Suleman will be dethroned by Dania Londono Suarez. In the boob dept, Octomom has met her match. Suarez is everything Nadya cannot be. Calif cannot afford to lose Suarez to NY or FL
