My daughter Riley has given me another reason to appeal this ridiculously unconstitutional ruling.
For a school assignment, my daughter Riley had to write about something she cared about. Here’s her essay:
Politicians by heart
By Riley Eyman
As a kid, my dad would always bring me to events with him. He started bringing me to events at about 6 months old and I’ve been part of what he does for a long time.
I used to hate going to events with him but once he brought me to more and taught me about them, I learned to like it.
I have gained more confidence about speaking in front of crowds and have gained more confidence overall.
I have learned a lot from him and the trail of activism. I have been by his side helping him stay on track and help him with his work.
He has taught me a lot when it comes to the political trail, how to act, how to stay calm, and has taught me what not to do when it comes to certain things.
He has had a lot of persistence over the many years he has been doing this.
He has been through thick and thin and I have been helping him all the way through.
I have been up on stage, I have been all over Washington, and ever since I was little I’ve been televised with him.
We have won and lost but we can not give up.
I have been helping him collect signatures for his petitions for years.
I find the trail very confusing but also very fun, especially because I have been beside my dad the whole time.
The trail is confusing because there are so many rules when it comes to everything, what you say, what you do, and what you publish. You have to be very careful.
When my dad was running, I was his biggest supporter.
I would go to every event.
And even when he lost, I was still cheering for him and how hard he worked, the paperwork and the harsh people he dealt with.
He has been dealing with all this for 23 years and I’ve been helping him for 13 of them.
Yes, people might say that the political trail is not the best for kids, and you would be mostly right except for the parts of it that teaches you valuable lessons and how to stand up for your rights.
I have supported him and I’ve helped him support other people.
Being part of the trail has helped me learn that all people should be treated with respect and like a human being.
He has also taught me how to compose myself and hold under pressure.
— END —
I am appealing these ridiculously unconstitutional restrictions on the First Amendment to make sure what he’s doing to me never happens to anyone else ever again.
I am so incredibly grateful for your prayers and support during this very difficult time for me and my family.
I’m only here because of the love and support of thousands of great people who see this gross injustice and are willing to help stop it.
