Complaint Filed Against Taitz -- Will WND Report?
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily has amply demonstrated that it will throw away what little integrity it has to serve as a shill for Orly Taitz -- it not only uncritically repeats every utterance of hers no matter how false or vindictive, it has rewarded her with a sycophantic profile, and WND editor Joseph Farah has slobbered all over her.

Taitz, in other words, is She Who Must Not Be Criticized at WND. So don't expect WND to come running to cover  a report detailing accusations of shoddy legal work and ethical violations.

A complaint has been filed with the California bar (h/t Natural Born Citizen blog) regarding Taitz's behavior in her obsessive pursuit of the Obama birth certificate conspiracy. Among the allegations in the complaint:

  • Taitz is indiscriminately hurled charges of treason and called for an armed revolt against the federal government.
  • She actively recruited clients in a state where she is not licensed to practice law.
  • She has repeatedly disrespected judges and officers of the court.
  • She has made false and misleading claims in court filings.
  • She has not properly accounted for money she has raised to further her crusade.

The complaint has been filed anonymously, the author claims, due to Taitz's history of retaliating against her critics.

Given that WND allowed Taitz to hurl numerous accusations against a former colleague -- as we noted, WND's Chelsea Schilling (who wrote the sycophantic profile of Taitz) claimed that the colleague didn't return her phone calls asking for a response but ignored the fact that responses were posted on the colleague's blog -- WND will try to ignore this complaint as long as it can, or at least until it gives Taitz a full opportunity to respond, a courtesy it refuses to extend to those Taitz attacks.

After all, Schilling thinks Taitz is just dreamy, a "fierce blond attorney" with "a vibrant smile and an ebullient personality," and Farah thinks she's a "constitutional heroine."

What we said about WND managing editor David Kupelian applies to Farah and Schilling as well: They care nothing about the truth or the Constitution or even ethical legal behavior -- only about destroying Obama. And like Kupelian, they don't seem to realize what they are actually destroying is WorldNetDaily.
