Persephone here’s the poor citizen who happened to upset Judge Robertson. I can’t believe I found it. I just had to find the source.
March 17, 2009
Mr Jesse Merrell, regular American, wasn’t happy with Judge Robertson’s rant about how barry’s birth certificate issue was “raised, vetted, blogged, texted, twittered, and otherwise massaged by America’s vigilant citizenry during Mr. Obama’s two-year-campaign for the presidency, but this plaintiff wants it resolved by a court” so he wrote the judge a letter.
Who wouldn’t be a tad upset when a judge defers to the vigilant – I think he meant vigilante – citizenry to vet the President of the United States? The whole thing is quite mad. So, Mr Merrell wrote the good judge a letter – maybe even a rant – of his own only to be visited by the US Marshal Service on behalf of the judge. It’s clear the judge has issues.
One wonder if he’s short and wears small shoes…
According to John McCaslin at the Washington Times, “Mr. Merrell says one of the marshals cited “some obscure law which made it illegal to say anything that caused ‘emotional distress’ to a federal judge.”
MR MERRELL: “I was visited by two U.S. marshals … after I had written a letter to Judge Robertson for his rant threatening sanctions over lawyers who filed a suit challenging Obama’s right to be president over the ‘natural born’ citizen clause in the Constitution.
I told them unless the First Amendment had been repealed, or they were going to arrest me, we had nothing to talk about.
And with that the Marshals left.
Don’t you wonder what the Marshals were thinking?
