As part of their sentencing evidence, prosecutors played Lakin’s video for the jury. In it, he states that a president who is not a natural-born citizen “would subvert law and truth” and demands that Obama “release your original, signed birth certificate -- if you have one.”He really got some bad advice from some people who wanted to use him to attack Barack Obama. The attack failed, and those people are now gone. They used doctor Lakin and abandoned him.
During an hour of unsworn testimony, Lakin called that video an embarrassing mistake, brought on by pressure and poor advice from supposed supporters.
“I would not do this again,” he said. “It was a confusing time for me, and I was very emotional. I thought I was choosing the right path, and I did not.”
Just politics. And doctor Lakin is now kicked out of the Army without his pension and with a record of a felony conviction.
