Judge Wonders Aloud If Orly Taitz Suborned Perjury. I Wonder Aloud About a 72 hour Psychiatric Hold

We already know Orly Taitz is one sick puppy. We're just wondering when the Bar Association is going to strip her of her law license and a judge is going to order a 72 hours hold for psychiatric observation?

From TPM's Justin Elliott:

Others have already noted this passage from a smack-down ruling against Orly Taitz in a California Birther suit last week. But it's worth highlighting that the judge in the case suggested Taitz may have suborned perjury.

Check out these sentences from the lengthy order by Judge David Carter of the U.S. District Court in the Central District of California:

[T]he Court has received several sworn affidavits that Taitz asked potential witnesses that she planned to call before this Court to perjure themselves. This Court is deeply concerned that Taitz may have suborned perjury through witnesses she intended to bring before this Court.

That's a pretty serious charge -- though there's no indication the judge has referred the matter to prosecutors. All of the affidavits in question are not publicly available, but the Washington Independent's Dave Weigel has reported on one from Larry Sinclair, himself an anti-Obama activist with a history of making wild claims.
