Birther, Minuteman attorney runs for San Diego judgeship

It's Kreep versus Peed in a battle between hilariously named judicial candidates

In a race guaranteed to produce snickering at the ballot box, Gary Kreep has filed paperwork to run against Deputy District Attorney Garland Peed for a seat on the San Diego Superior Court bench. 

Kreep, who is based in Ramona, serves as the executive director of the United States Justice Foundation, an organization founded to "advance the conservative viewpoint in the judicial arena." Now, "conservative" might be a conservative way to describe Kreep's positions. He's also the volunteer general counsel to the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps and one of the main attorneys suing President Barack Obama on behalf of the "Birther" movement. 

"If he was born in Kenya, which is, what is now Kenya, which is what we believe, then as a matter of Constitutional Law he cannot be President of the United States," Kreep told progressive radio show host Thom Hartmann in a 2009 interview.

A few other Kreepy bits: 

Kreep was the attorney for Personhood Nevada, an anti-abortion political organization that attempted to circulate a petition to prevent "discrimination against the unborn," according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.  A judge threw out the petition in December because the language was too vague. 

In 2009, Kreep launched DefendGlenn.com, a site dedicated to protecting then-FOX commentator Glenn Beck from boycotts and attacking activist Van Jones, ThinkProgress.org and others reported. 

Kreep was the lead attorney in a lawsuit to invalidate same-sex marriage licenses and was part of the conservative legal team observing the Proposition 8 vote tally. 

In partnership with tele-evangelist Bill Keller, Kreep recorded an infomercial titled, "Where was president Obama born?" n
