Birther Lawyer (Montgomery Blair Sibley) and Write-in Candidate, Suing Electoral College ~ dcist.com

If you were curious about what the disbarred lawyer, former Florida inmate, bagpipe-blowing fringe candidate Montgomery Blair Sibley thinks about last week's election, you're in luck. He thinks it stinks.

Sibley, who has been disbarred from 13 different federal courts and three state bars during his career, is suing D.C.'s three representatives to the Electoral College, which is slated to meet next month and confirm that President Obama won on November 6. And, like he always does, Sibley doubts Obama's legitimacy to hold the office to which he just won another four years.

In one complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Sibley calls Obama's birth certificate, college transcripts and other identifying documents "questionable." So, basically the same birther shit as usual.

His second complaint takes direct aim at the Electoral College itself. Citing the 12th and 23rd amendments, Sibley hopes to stop the 332 electors pledge to Obama from voting for a candidate he sees as illegitimate. Or something like that.

PLUS other sanctions as it sees fit. This birther crap has been thrown out of so many times from so many courts, there ought to be Rule 11 sanctions.

I agree that the birther nonsense should be considered frivolous and adequate sanctions, applied.

They hold a mud wrestling competition with three of five wins between Orly (or is it Oily) Taint and this dude facing Trump. I'm sure that should keep them out of our way for a few years as they would fight among themselves on everything from the rules to who can compete, bathing suits, location, etc. We might even be able to make some $ by selling tickets/PPV.
