Lakin's guilty plea won't erase his challenge to the president's legitimacy, Stars and Stripes reported. About 30 so-called "birthers" attended Lakin's hearing, where they handed out pamphlets with a picture of Obama labeled "usurper" and "ineligible," the newspaper said.

Lakin maintained that there are questions about Obama's presidency but said he shouldn't have refused to report, Stars and Stripes said.

"I was praying and soul searching," Lakin said. "I believed there was a question that needs to be answered to ensure a valid chain of command. But I had asked every question, done everything else I could short of disobeying orders, without success."
