EYMAN VERSUS FERGUSON – here is Richard Sanders’ latest filing against the AG – he’s asking for a Stay Pending Appeal – brilliant – help me pay for it

Fri, Aug 20, 2021

There are so many ridiculously unconstitutional restrictions on basic First Amendment rights in the AG’s ruling.

Things I can’t say, activism I can’t do.

Fortunately, I have former state supreme court justice Richard Sanders and his colleagues defending me.

He filed a motion called a “Stay Pending Appeal.”

What’s it do? It asks that all these restrictions be put on hold — be stayed — until the higher courts decide whether or not these restrictions violate the First Amendment.”

“This case involves the unprecedented finding by a Trial Court that one individual is a ‘continuing political committee’ … No other individual has ever been so labeled or so burdened. Moreover, the Trial Court ordered expansive and draconian prior restraint injunctive relief prohibiting Mr. Eyman from exercising fundamental First Amendment speech activities in the initiative process.

“A Stay of enforcement is warranted while this decision is under review because the Trial Court has staked out new and chilling legal territory, imposed resulting draconian and crippling monetary penalties, and infringed so deeply on Mr. Eyman and his friends’ First Amendment constitutional rights.”

It also says: “The burdens the injunctions impose on Mr. Eyman are immediate, obvious, and disturbing. The prohibitions and restrictions imposed on his political and personal activities are unprecedented and impossibly intrusive.”

It’s brilliant.

And it is costly. And I don’t have enough to pay for all of it.

Every dollar I’ve ever earned in my lifetime is gone.

Every dollar I raised for the past 8 1/2 years to fight back against Fascist Fergie’s attack on me and my family is gone.

I’ve put it all on the line to fight back against the AG’s abuse of power.

Bob Ferguson spent more going after me than all other cases over the past 8 years COMBINED!

And the only reason I’m still here and I’m still fighting is because of the prayers and support of thousands of wonderful people who were willing to help me and my family survive this blatant abuse of power by the AG.

I’m very grateful to all of you for that.

Only with your continued help can we reverse this gross injustice.
