Judge Kreep (The homophobic birther judge just elected in San Diego)

http://www.altweeklies.com/aan/the-birther-judge/Story?oid=6746217




In 2005, he launched the Hillary Clinton Accountability Project and filed a lawsuit against Clinton, alleging campaign-finance fraud. In recent years, Kreep has gained notoriety for mounting legal challenges to President Barack Obama's eligibility for the presidency, claiming he was born in Kenya. The press has dubbed it the "Birther" movement due to Kreep and his followers' fixation on Obama's birth certificate. Through an assortment of political committees, Kreep has also supported the election of Republicans, including U.S. Rep. Allen West, Herman Cain and Gov. Sarah Palin.

Throughout the 2012 election cycle, Kreep has walked a thin line in terms of permissible political activity for judicial candidates, as proscribed by the California Code of Judicial Ethics. Kreep and his Tea Party colleagues have also exploited loopholes in federal and state campaign-finance regulations to escape filing deadlines and disclosure requirements.

Whether he's crossed the line is for the reader to judge.
