Think Progress seems to have caught Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH) saying something very interesting to a Birther — that Schmidt agrees with her.

The Birther spoke to Schmidt, as the Congresswoman was making a very frustrated effort to calm her down. “He cannot be a president by our Constitution,” she complained.

Schmidt then ducked in close and tried to whisper something in the woman’s ear — which was picked up by the camera. “I agree with you,” said Schmidt, “but the courts don’t.”
