Root has long fed Birther conspiracies with his insinuation that Obama never went to Columbia.
On May 16, Root announced on Facebook that he would testify at a Reverand Manning's private trial against Obama. Apparently, Manning's bizarro trial would showcase every anti-Obama conspiracy out there.
This news soon broke out on IndependentPoliticalReport.com, resulting in a firestorm of criticism against Root.
Root, who was running for LP chair and saw his chances slipping away, behaved like any bully who'd been challenged. He turned tail and ran, explaining why he decided not to testify after all.
But the damage from Root's Birther conspiracy idiocy is still out there, embarrassing the LP. Just today, I received the following spam, repeating idiotic conspiracy theories about Obama, new and old, many of which have already been disproved -- and once again citing Root as a source.
The LNC should publicly disassociate itself from Wayne Allyn Root's conspiracy claims, and state that Root's insinuations spreading virally across the internet do not reflect the LP or its views.

Why was obama's law license inactivated in 2002?
Why was Michelle's law license INACTIVATED by court order? There is only one Barack Hussein Obama according to the U. S. Census and he has 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases.
The one he uses now originated in Connecticut where he is not ever reported to have lived. No wonder ALL of his 'records' are sealed!
It just gets worse! At least we only have 3 years of this mystery man left before we can replace him. Was He There? Who IS He? I have always wondered why NO ONE ever came forward from Obama's past saying they knew him, attended school with him, was his friend, etc..
NO ONE, not one person has ever come forward from his past. VERY, VERY STRANGE.
This should really be a cause for great concern. To those who voted for him, YOU HAVE ELECTED THE BIGGEST UNQUALIFIED FRAUD that America has ever known!
This is very interesting stuff. Sort of adds credence to the idea of The Manchurian Candidate thing having happened here!
Stephanopoulos of ABC news said the same thing during the 08' campaign. He too was a classmate of BO's at Columbia class of 1984. He said he never had ONE class withhim. Was he there?
While he is such a great orator, why doesn't ANYONE in Obama's college class remember him? Maybe he never attended class! Maybe he never attended Columbia? He won't allow Colombia to release his records either.
Suspicious isn't it???
NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA
Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered him.
Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983.
In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a SINGLE PERSON at Columbia who knew him, and they all know me. I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia. EVER! Nobody rcalls him. I'm not exaggerating.
"Root adds that he was also, like Obama, "Class of '83 political science, pre-law" and says, "You don't get more exact or closer than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him.
At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack!
And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York, the macha who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, who ever met him. Is that not strange? It's VERY strange.
"Obama's photograph does NOT appear in the school's'yearbook' and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia.
NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School, then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major (in the same class as Barack Hussein Obama WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN IN).
Can it be that BHO is a complete fraud? More intrigue concerning "The Man who WASN'T there."
I’m sure the truth will be found out, but too bad not soon enough!
Please do not give up on ousting the people at the top. We must go on, and continue sending these out to everyone. Pass this on to everyone on your e-list. Pass it across America!
