Six-Figure Defamation Win for Larry Klayman
Taitz vs Klayman in red on red legal wrangling…
Judicial Watch had entered the public sphere in 1994 with a series of lawsuits against the Clinton administration, but Klayman stepped down in 2006 to run for U.S. Senate and now heads conservative activist group Freedom Watch.
In February 2012, birther queen Orly Taitz had been running for Congress when she took to her website to say that Klayman was convicted of not paying child support.
A Soviet Moldova-born, birther-conspiracy theorist, Taitz’s extreme views have gotten her banned from Tea Party events.
She published the allegations about Klayman on Feb. 23, just one day after speaking with Judicial Watch office administrator Constance Ruffley at a meeting of the California Coalition for Immigration Reform.
When Taitz conceded on Feb. 26 that Klayman was never convicted, she blamed Ruffley for the error.
