In blogs, interviews and e-mails, “birthers” around the country are reporting surveillance and visits from the U.S. Secret Service, whose agents have questioned – or, as some report, intimidated – them over their insistence that Barack Obama prove his constitutional eligibility to serve as president.
As WND reported, Stephen Pidgeon, an attorney for Washington state plaintiffs challenging Obama’s eligibility, grew suspicious in March when his wife and coworkers reported being shadowed by police and three, black SUVs.
“We are definitely under surveillance and it’s coordinated with Homeland Security,” Pidgeon alleged.
In November, Dale Laudenslager, a member of the American Grand Jury movement’s attempt to have Obama indicted for fraud and even treason, reported on The JAG Hunter blog more direct confrontation: an unannounced home visit by a Pennsylvania state police officer and two Secret Service agents.
“They came in regard to the criminal complaint I sent to the FBI and the fact that [Obama] is going to be in a town very close by,” Laudenslager writes. “I told them I had no violent intentions, but we do intend to remove [Obama] from office through the court system. I handed them the AGJ presentments. I told them they have been mailed or hand delivered to courts and public officials all over this country. They seemed satisfied, took a copy of the presentments, left their cards and left.”
Orly Taitz, perhaps the best known of the attorneys challenging Obama’s eligibility in several court cases around the country, told the news site Mother Jones, “A number of my supporters had visits from Secret Service, from different agencies, INS, Homeland Security. There are a whole number of people who got these visits to intimidate and harass them.”
