Just more BS from Polarick(Ron Polland)

He's just a sore cry baby because he's become a nobody in the birther world. Not even Orly believes his lies

Uh huh. Polarik is simply throwing a temper tantrum because no one believes him. Well, except for you, Comer.

Since factcheck gets its money from foundations, I'm sure that it is not worried in the least about Polland/Polarik the fraud:

From Brooks Jackson, Director of factcheck.org:
"On advice of counsel, I am losing not one second of sleep over this comical "challenge."

Donations to FactCheck.org are deductible because we are a part of the University of Pennsylvania, a 501(c)3 organization. So if Polland has actually filed some challenge against FactCheck.org as he claims - and I've seen nothing either from him or from the IRS to confirm that - then he's challenged the wrong legal entity.
Should he realize his error and try to correct it, I think he'll have zero chance of making a case that an Ivy League university should not be tax exempt.

I'm also mystified at his claim to have filed something with the Federal Election Commission, which has no jurisdiction over tax matters."

Brooks Jackson is a journalist who has covered Washington and national politics since 1970, reporting in turn for the Associated Press, the Wall Street Journal and CNN. He joined the Annenberg Public Policy Center in 2003 and launched FactCheck.org in December of that year.

NH Electoral Commissioner: "Is there any decision anyplace, by anybody? Has anybody made a determination on this that appropriately says that President Obama was not born in the United States, is not a citizen of the United States?"
Attorney Orly Taitz: "No"
Commissioner: "No. Thank you."
