Kreep came to national prominence on the back of late-night TV commercials questioning President Obama's birthplace and has led numerous legal challenges to his eligibility for office. He also recently represented a Marine discharged for disparaging the president on Facebook.

U-T San Diego reports Kreep will serve a six-year term, earning $178,789 a year.

"Look, a lot of people may disagree with the cases I take," he said, according to the U-T. "But there are a lot of people who admire me for taking on those same cases."
