Rep. Cynthia Davis spoke with The Washington Independent's David Weigel this weekend at the How to Take Back America Conference in St. Louis. As you might expect, Davis has a unique perspective on things:
Rep. Cynthia Davis, a Republican state legislator in Missouri who has worked with "birther" lawyer Orly Taitz for most of this year, said that lawsuits demanding proof of the president’s citizenship were chiefly about the integrity of the Constitution, and that because Obama’s father was Kenyan, Obama’s eligibility problems extended beyond his birth records.
"Her credibility is questioned because she has an accent," said Davis, defending Taitz, "and yet the reason she has an accent is because she came from a Communist country, and she knows how awful that is, to have a government usurped."
From the woman who recently declared racism dead, we learn that the skepticism about Taitz' absolutely insane conspiracy theories is rooted in prejudice about her foreign accent.
It sure is awesome that Rep. Davis continues to be the Chair of the House Special Standing Committee on Children and Families, and that none of her fellow leaders in the Missouri GOP will distance themselves from her statements and actions.
