In her bid to be the GOP nominee for California secretary of state, Birther conspiracy theorist Orly Taitz got 368,000 votes — about 26 percent — but lost badly to mainstream Republican Damon Dunn, who got 74 percent.

The only question now is: how long till Taitz claims the election was stolen and initiates years of litigation?The top of her website currently features an amateurish YouTube video headlined “Interview with senior citizens, who supposedly nominated Damon Dunn, but swear they never did it.”

Even if she accepts the election results as legitimate, Taitz has plenty to keep her busy in the courts. She’s still facing complaints filed with the California bar, and she’s also locked in a battle with a U.S. attorney in Georgia over an unpaid fine that was imposed on Taitz for making frivolous Birther legal filings.
