Bloggers are buzzing about a law clerk who purportedly works in the same California court that’s hearing a lawsuit challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president – and his possible ties to a law firm that has defended Obama in other eligibility cases.
A Wikipedia page has been cited by dozens of bloggers after it listed Siddarth Velamoor as one of the newest law clerks for federal Judge David Carter – who is hearing the eligibility case Barnett v. Obama, in the Central District, Southern Division Court in Santa Ana, Calif.
Velamoor is also listed in the Martindale lawyer database as an associate of international law firm Perkins Coie, the same law firm of Robert Bauer – top lawyer for Obama, Obama’s presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee and Obama’s Organizing for America – and the same Washington, D.C., lawyer who defended President Obama in lawsuits challenging his eligibility to be president.
As WND has reported, Federal Election Commission records for “Obama for America” show that the lobby organization has paid Perkins Coie exactly $1,666,397.01 since the 2008 election.
WND has also reported that Bauer sent a letter to plaintiff Gregory Hollister, a retired Air Force colonel, of Hollister v. Soetoro, threatening sanctions if he didn’t withdraw his appeal of the eligibility case that earlier was tossed by a district judge because the issue already had been “twittered.” Bauer also represented Obama and the DNC in Philip Berg’s eligibility lawsuit and various other legal challenges.
