|Description||One the leaders of the so-called “birthers” is stepping up to defend former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.) from Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). |
Olry Taitz – a California dentist and lawyer who has filed lawsuits alleging that Barack Obama is not a citizen and therefore ineligible to be president – is taking offense at an ad McCain’s campaign released Wednesday linking Hayworth with her.
The ad, titled “Identity,” begins with the text, “These are serious economic times. Yet some are consumed by conspiracies,” before cutting to video of Taitz, another prominent birther, Phillip Berg, and Hayworth all questioning Obama’s citizenship.
“The only difference between these three people? Only one is running for the U.S. Senate,” the narrator of the ad concludes.
Taitz responded a post on her website, attacking McCain, who is being challenged by Hayworth in the GOP primary, for “ignoring the most important issue the country is facing today.”
Taitz called the ad – which she misspelled as “add” throughout the post – “despicable” and “appalling.”
She went on to challenge the four-term senator to a televised debate on the president’s citizenship.
