The Los Angeles Times reports that organizers of next year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) have rejected a request by WorldNetDaily to host a panel on the Birther issue:
In one symbolic development, organizers of next year’s Conservative Political Action Conference — the country’s biggest annual meeting of activists on the right — said last week that they had rejected a request to schedule a panel on whether Obama was a native-born U.S. citizen.
“It would fill a room,” said event director Lisa De Pasquale. “But so would a two-headed monkey. There really are so many more important issues, and it’s only a three-day conference.”
CPAC officials said WorldNetDaily’s [Joseph] Farah asked the group to hold the panel.
