SAN DIEGO - A Marine sergeant who criticized President Obama on Facebook was notified Wednesday that he is being dismissed from the service with an other-than-honorable discharge. Gary Stein, 26, a nine-year veteran who served in Iraq, will be demoted to lance corporal, and his discharge status will make him ineligible for most federal veterans benefits, after Brig. Gen. Daniel Yoo accepted the unanimous recommendation of an Administrative Separation Board. The panel found that he made disparaging comments about Obama that were detrimental to good order and discipline and violated military law. Civilian lawyers for Stein said they would continue to fight in federal court to prevent Stein from being dismissed or to win his reinstatement.

Undeterred by documentary evidence and repeated judicial rejection, a group of conspiracy theorists who say President Obama was born in Africa have sued the California secretary of state to demand that she verify the eligibility of all presidential candidates before putting them on the November ballot. Minor party politicians and voters aligned with the so-called birthers filed the lawsuit in Sacramento County Superior Court, noting that their action was on the advice of a federal appeals court ruling last year that they bring their suspicions about Obama's eligibility to a court's attention during an election, not after it. The lawsuit filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and five others also alludes to "questions concerning the eligibility" of Mitt Romney to vie for the role of commander in chief.

San Diego Mayor Maureen O'Connor won't support an effort that could oust Gary Kreep from the city's Human Relations Commission, where he has raised controversy for his purportedly anti-homosexual views. The commission Dec. 18 voted to ask the City Council to consider reconfirming each member, and Paul Downey, the mayor's spokesman, said Tuesday that O'Connor has decided not to bring the matter before the council when it meets next Monday.

A group of Southern Californians who insist that President Obama was born in Africa and should be ousted from the Oval Office had their case thrown out by a federal appeals court Thursday, but vowed to press their conspiracy theory with judges at the top of the judicial chain. None of the "birthers" who filed suit on Inauguration Day 2009 can show that they suffered any harm from the Obama presidency that would give them the right to sue him, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said in dismissing the lawsuit brought by dozens of opponents.

The California Learning Assessment System test has been hailed by its supporters as a revolutionary method of testing students, providing a way to measure students' critical thinking skills. But the test, given for the first time last year to about a million fourth-, eighth- and 10th-grade students, has come under increasing criticism, with opponents of the costly test saying it asks students personal questions and fails to measure basic skills.

February 16, 1992 | MITCHELL TENDLER, MITCHELL TENDLER, a former executive director of the Michigan Fair Employment Practices Commission who lives in San Diego, believes it's time for the city's new Human Relations Commission to get to work
Last March, the San Diego City Council created a Human Relations Commission. But what has happened in almost a year is not a study of accomplishment in human relations; it's a study of the priorities of elected officials. First, some background. The role of HRC is a crucial one of identifying and, it is hoped, diminishing discrimination based on race, religion, color ancestry, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, medical condition or place of birth.

Just when it seemed the controversy over President Obama's birthplace had been laid to rest, a group of Southern California "birthers" had a rare day in federal court Monday to make their case that the president isn't a natural-born American and should be removed from office. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals granted Buena Park minister Wiley Drake and leading birther litigator Orly Taitz a chance to challenge the summary dismissal of the case by a Santa Ana federal judge two years ago. Unmoved by the release last week of Obama's official long-form birth certificate showing he was born in Honolulu, the birthers descended in force on the Pasadena federal courthouse, wielding fold-out displays of the president's identity documents they contend prove a lifelong pattern of covering up his foreign origins.
