Feinstein Could Face "Birther" in General Election

A novel California primary process that premieres today "was intended to produce moderates," the San Francisco Chronicle reports, but in the state's U.S. Senate race, "it could yield a challenger who claims President Obama was born in Kenya."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) faces 23 challengers, "including 14 Republicans, the best known of whom is litigious "birther" Orly Taitz, a Russian Israeli emigre who has appeared on national television with her claims that Obama faked his birth certificate."

John Avlon: "Seriously. It's hard to overstate just how bad that would be for the Golden State GOP."
