[UPDATE] Scott Brown Recognizes Birther Candidate for Congress

[UPDATE: Dan Kennedy, who had questioned the Brown team on this, learns that Hudak trumpeted an "endorsement" from Brown without actually getting one. I've changed my headline to reflect that Brown, at the very least, thanked Hudak for helping with an 11th hour rally.]

At a Monday rally for Scott Brown in North Andover, Mass., I met Bill Hudak, a first-time candidate for Congress running against Rep. John Tierney (D-Mass.). He stayed as close to Brown as he could — pictures of the rally are now at the top of his campaign website. Hudak is the guy in the leather jacket and glasses.

Picture 69

What I didn’t know at the time: Hudak is a conservative activist with some extremely strange views of President Obama’s religion and citizenship. On November 3, 2008, the Tri-Town Transcript reported that Hudak, who lives in Boxford, Mass., had pulled down kooky anti-Obama signs from his property after getting too many complaints.

Down the road at 165 Herrick Road, William and Angela Hudak have more of the same anti-Obama signs lined along the front of their property. One large, roughly 6-foot-by-4-foot sign stands back from the road, up against their house, with words – such as socialist, Marxist, and lazy – surrounding the same picture of Obama dressed as Osama Bin Laden.

William Hudak said he received complaints over the weekend from the police about some of the larger signs placed near the roadside. But Hudak added he didn’t need to take the signs down but did so just because the police department was being flooded with phone calls. [...]

Hudak asserts that Obama was not born in the United States but in Kenya, according to affidavits that he made available to the Tri-Town Transcript. He said that Obama has ties to the Muslim faith through an extremist cousin that is from Kenya.

“There is a lot more going on here than anyone knows,” Hudak said.

Brown endorsed Hudak immediately after the election. Here’s video of Brown recognizing Hudak at that North Andover rally, the day before the election.

See the guy in the back? No, not that one, the other one. Well guess what: he's a Communist. It's true! Dave Weigel has proof!

P.S. The person who started this tale has updated his post to point out that Brown doesn't seem to be endorsing Hudak after all. Why didn't Weigel ask Brown first? What sort of journalist is he? That's, of course, a rhetorical question: see my Dave Weigel coverage.

Weigel never does research he lets gossipy liberal cronies from a few web sites give him his information which is always screwy ..These liberal blogers live in their own web sites trying to figure out ways to slander anyone who doesn't agree with them ! One particular site is really hysterical to read….such arrogance and misinformation they spew ! Then they visit conservative sites, twitters and facebook and copy and report the chat back to there blogs lol where they then proceed to have an online meeting to gather in their little huddle of about 10 or less and come up with ridiculous analysis ! lol Its sort of like a knitting circle of old gossipy women..then they get on blog talk radio once a week and gossip more about it like the know what they are talking about….hysterical !!!!
Advice to Weigel do your research before you take these liberals words for granted….Journalism ya know …must do your own research…..

What a joke! It's actually pretty funny watching you guys (libs) desperately trying to throw mud at anyone who dares disagree with you. Total unjustifiable arrogance!

If you haven't noticed by now – IT ISN'T WORKING! In fact, the tactic is driving people away from your side and decimating your credibility. Please keep it up – as it's entertaining seeing you guys foaming at the mouth in utter frustration!

HAHA! Disagree with us? How about disagree with the truth? Or reality?

Unless you talk of Brown. Consider this…before you swagger on, there never vwas a 60 vote majority in the Senate. All the news agencies had you fooled. They counted partisan SEATS. The votes were never there.
It's too early in the game to be making predictions about outcome of anything. Anyone who does is a fool. 41 votes is still a minority, if you hadn't noticed.

If you ARE talking about the birfers, they're a figure of fun, nothing more. Want to enter the contest for the most ridiculous claims? We're all here, go for it!

So maybe the Brit, Neil Sankey can succeed where the Russian immigrant (from the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic) has failed, bring it on.

Poor little Birthers (still in denial about their losses), Judge Land and now judge Carter, smack down the crazies (case dismissed).

Not even “Fake News” Glenn Beck or Bill O’Reilly believes the crazies, how funny.

To all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true (TOUGH WHEN YOU KEEP LOSING CASES), if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories. You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess they were in on it.

In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

I wonder if she is a mail order bride, just like her law degree? She is perfect reporter material for “Fake News”, where unfounded rumors and innuendo reign supreme , unlike a our US courts of law, where you need to present documented facts, not half baked lies (prepare for more failures).

A lawyer, dentist, realtor and black belt, WOW I must say a JACK of all trades master of none

I heard that she now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC). She wants to re-establish a family values party.

I can only hope that Taitz will resist the state collectors that will be hounding her like the “ruff ruff” that she is to collect the $20K.

The people who are being “driven away” would not vote for a Democrat regardless.

As for Scott Brown, let's just say that anyone who celebrates his election with a lame joke about trying to find husbands for his college-age daughters has a great deal to learn about national politics.

Replace liberal with conservative on your comment….Now that's closer to the truth!

Research? What would a Repub know about research? You've reduced the english language to “Newspeak”. Just ask Michelle Malkin.

There once was a Moldavian shrew,
with really bad makeup, too.
Who went to court a time or three,
got thrown out for a shrieking scree…
And told not to return to boot.

Had a tryst with an office mate,
now he's in love, “it's time to skate!”
But she rebuffed his advances,
said “HELL NO!” to office romances,
in the pokey now, he has to wait.

What of the followers? I don't know.
Seriously, they have nothing to show….
Like a bad penny they come,
with nothing to argue (they're too dumb),
like a deer in the headlights (or maybe a doe).

Where does it lead? Who's to say,
they'll never be in a legitimate way….
They can whine and moan all they want,
Empty halls is all they'll haunt,
Obama as President is here to STAY!

Yesterday…”We all had to bring our birth certificates to show we were who we said we were, and we were the age we said we were, to play football in youth sports,” said Hayworth, who is currently challenging John McCain (R-AZ) in Arizona's Senate primary. “Shouldn't we know exactly that anyone who wants to run for public office is a natural born citizen of the United States, and is who they say they are?”
Later in the segment, which aired Tuesday night on MSNBC's Hardball, Hayworth said the responsibility for producing evidence should fall directly on Obama.
“I'm just saying the president should come forward with the information, that's all.
And then there's the college records which will seal Obama's fate.

You added the college part being a deranged fuckwad.

“I'm just saying the president should come forward with the information, that's all. Why must we depend on the governor of Hawaii?”

“Coincidentally, Tuesday was original scheduled to be the first hearing date for Barnett v. Obama in U.S. District Court. The case would have challenged Obama's citizenship, but was thrown out by Judge David O. Carter without going to trial.”

Ahh. A flicker of birfer hope from a nut ball in the media. I'm LMFAO at you. You are a disgrace and embarrassment to the U.S.

THIS JUST IN AP- WASHINGTON D.C. – In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College. Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the college. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program.
To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.

So… once a copy of the original “birth certificate” Obama mentions being in his possession on page 26 of “Dreams of My Father” and the actual Occidental College records get released the question of Obama's eligibility will finally be answered. That'll be great.

Please provide the source for your belief that a) the President's college records are even slightly relevant to his qualifications for office and b) that Senator Centerfold and his constituents in Massachusetts care.

Natural-born citizens are those born in the United States to parents who are CITIZENS (legal definition). The Constitution says “No person except a natural born citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President” Obama was born a Brit, per the British nationality Act of 1948, regardless of his birthplace, he lived as an Indonesian and it is unknown to the general public at this time which citizenship(Brit, Kenyan, or Indonesian?) he carried into adulthood however that information is in the Occidental College records where he apparently attended as a foreign student. On Sunday June 27, 2004 the Kenyan Standard Times through the AP wire printed Obama was “Kenyan-born”. In the Fall of 2004 Obama debated former-ambassador Alan Keyes for a seat in the US Senate from Illinois. At this debate Keyes faulted Obama for not being a natural born citizen. Obama quickly retorted “So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, NOT THE PRESIDENCY” admitting himself that he is not eligible to run for president. Then there's the statements by Grandma Obama and the Kenyan Ambassador both claiming Obama was born in Kenya and the Kenyan Birth Certificate with the footprint.

Darrel Issa is running all types of investigations, why don’t the Birthers
stop depending on a long form birth certificate, that actually proves nothing and get Issa to investigate.
