Rep. Chaffetz: Birther Lawyer Orly Taitz's Newest Friend

July 30, 2009 12:21 pm ET — Matt Finkelstein

Birther lawyer Orly Taitz just won't leave the GOP alone.  On her blog, Taitz is boasting that she's now Facebook friends with yet another Republican congressman, this time Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz. 

Earlier in the week, Taitz was touting her new friendship with Minority Whip Eric Cantor and RNC Chairman Michael Steele. "To me it means that the leadership of the Republican party understands the importance of the issues and legal cases I brought forward," she said. "I hope more congressmen and senators join and either become additional plaintiffs or bring to the House and Senate judicial committee hearings the issues of Obama's illegitimacy."

Both Cantor and Steele rejected the notion that they support Taitz' cause.  Will Chaffetz do the same?
