Taxpayers Want Birthers to Pay the Costs of Defending Against Their Lawsuits

By: Sarah Jones
Jan. 15th, 2013



In a new White House petition, the people demand, “Mandate the AG to seek sanctions, costs, and attorneys’ fees to recover taxpayer funds used to defend birther lawsuits.” The American taxpayers want to be reimbursed for the costs of defending against the birthers frivolous lawsuits.

The petition reads:

“Mandate the AG to seek sanctions, costs, and attorneys’ fees to recover taxpayer funds used to defend birther lawsuits.

Hundreds of repetitious and frivolous lawsuits have been filed challenging President Obama’s status as a natural born citizen. These lawsuits have clogged up the courts and cost the taxpayers millions of dollars in court costs and attorneys’ fees.

We, the taxpayers, respectfully petition for an Executive Order or directive to the Attorney General to seek to recover taxpayer funds expended in defending frivolous Birther lawsuits by requesting sanctions, costs, and attorneys’ fees in each and every pending or future case.”

One might think that the birthers, since they are a subset of alleged conservatives, would want to repay these costs since they are allegedly against any debt, also against frivolous lawsuits and also against free loaders sucking up government welfare (the patience of the courts notwithstanding, apparently).

This one is a win. Plus, if it does get enough signatures, imagine how hilarious the White House’s response will be, based on their Death Star rebuttal.

1. Hope you get enough signatures...

I would love to see the WH response. Not as much as I would like to see Tea Bagger response if they are ordered to pay for their own frivolous lawsuits.
