Politico gives you today’s Democratic favorite news story of the day: Republicans suddenly afraid that Orly Taitz might be on their statewide ticket in the fall.

“It’d be a disaster for the Republican party,” says James Lacy, a conservative GOP operative in the state. “Can you imagine if [gubernatorial candidate] Meg Whitman and [candidate for Lt. Gov.] Abel Maldonado — both of whom might have a chance to win in November — had to run with Orly Taitz as secretary of state, who would make her cockamamie issues about Obama’s birth certificate problems at the forefront of her activities?”

“There is no Republican candidate for statewide office that would be willing to have her campaign with them,” says Adam Probolsky, a spokesman for the Orange County Republican Party.

In her quest for the Secretary of State nomination, Orly Taitz has questioned the legal eligibility of her fellow Republican opponent… who’s African-American.

As with Obama, she’s turned to lawsuits to challenge him, arguing that Dunn’s brief time as a registered Democrat in Florida — from his playing days with the Jacksonville Jaguars — disqualifies him from the California ballot and amounts to fraud. 

“Our country will turn into a banana republican until we disclose information that is related to voter fraud,” she told POLITICO.

Suddenly, I have a new found interest in the California GOP primary tomorrow night.

[UPDATE:] In other Orly Taitz news, guess who just appeared with Taitz at a Republican event in California with Karl Rove and Michelle Bachmann?  Why our own GOP Treasurer candidate Josh Mandell!
