For years, Democrat AG Bob Ferguson and his cheerleaders in the media have lied about me over and over and over again.

It’s what they do to conservatives who are effective.

Working together, we’ve qualified 17 statewide initiatives.

Every one of them limited the governments’ power over us.

For several of those campaigns, I used my own money to help our initiatives get on the ballot. For example, in 2010, I took out a 2nd mortgage on my house and loaned $250,000 to start up the signature drive for the initiative renewing the 2/3-vote-requirement-for-raising taxes. In 2018, it was our retirement fund:

This put my personal finances in great jeopardy, but those early infusions of money helped us get our initiatives qualified much less expensively.

How much less? Our 17 initiatives spent, on average, $672K to get on the ballot. Other initiative campaigns spent $1.2 million on average.

That all-out commitment is the reason we’ve qualified so many initiatives for a vote.

And those 17 initiatives have saved taxpayers over $43 billion directly and many billions more indirectly.

It was this remarkable track record of success that spurred the AG to spend $2 million of taxpayers’ money going after me and my family to shut us down.

To survive this horrible 8 year ordeal, I asked friends and supporters to help me and my family survive the AG’s jihad. Thousands of people responded to my plea for assistance because they opposed Ferguson’s abuse of power.  

Here’s the biggest lie the AG made about me:

* that I “took” people’s money.

My attorney Richard Sanders exposed that as a total lie. 

Contrary to the State’s innuendo, the only money Mr. Eyman received over the past two decades was not taken or stolen from anyone. Thousands of people voluntarily chose to help Mr. Eyman and his family – there is nothing unlawful about that. People and businesses entered into voluntary business relationships with Mr. Eyman – all of them were legal. Mr. Eyman never took money from anyone – he wasn’t a signer on anyone’s bank account except his own. In every instance, the money he received came from people who chose to voluntarily give it to him. And he consulted with professionals – why wouldn’t he? – to ensure he was following state and federal laws. For 8 years, Mr. Eyman has been put through the ringer. It’s nothing short of a miracle he’s still standing.

Our efforts to protect taxpayers are needed now more than ever.

With your help and support, I’m certain that we will continue to score victories for the people of the state of Washington for years to come.  


I really need your help to survive AG Bob Ferguson’s investigation / litigation / persecution of me and my family. The only reason we’re still here is thanks to the heartfelt prayers and generous support from friends like you. Please donate to my legal defense fund here:

In addition, we worked really hard on our $30 Tabs Initiative.

We got I-976 qualified, passed, and upheld by that King County judge. Karen and I sacrificed a lot — we sold off our retirement fund to kickstart its signature drive: 

We’re asking folks to donate to our PAC so we can get paid back and they’ll also be used to stop Inslee’s Income Tax and Carbon Tax Schemes. Please help:
