But the attorney says he can’t fire her because she’s kicked him off the case.

Orly Taitz, the Mission Viejo lawyer trying to get Barack Obama thrown out of office, says she’s had enough of two of her clients in the case and will continue without them.

Whoa, say the two.

“This is our case,” said Buena Park Pastor Wiley Drake, one of the two plaintiffs Taitz has unilaterally tried to have removed from the case.

The lawsuit challenges Obama’s birthplace and his legitimacy as president. The latest chapter in the drama started when Drake and Markham G. Robinson notified Taitz that they were replacing her as counsel. Taitz continues to represent 40 other plaintiffs in the federal case filed in Santa Ana.

Drake complained that Taitz’s paperwork errors have delayed proceedings.

“Orly is getting overwhelmed,” Drake said. “We all make mistakes, but she is in over her head.”

Taitz’s initial complaint was sent back to her by the court for being incomplete, as was a filing last week alleging the possession of a Kenyan birth registration for Obama – a document experts have dismissed as a forgery.

Among omissions in the more recent document was such basic information as Taitz’s bar number. In another recent filing by Taitz, her own name was misspelled as “Orley.”

“I rest my case,” Drake said.

Drake and Robinson are now being represented by Gary Kreep, who has previously worked for abortion foes and is counsel for the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. Kreep said he is looking to make changes to Taitz’s filings.

“There were some problems with the initial complaint,” he said. “It needs to be amended to make the case stronger.”
