My appeal of the AG’s fundamentally flawed ruling against me took a huge leap forward: yesterday my attorney Richard Sanders submitted a 5000-word filing for higher court review. It’s brilliantly written and persuasively argued – I urge you to read it.

I never would’ve been able to do what Richard has done.
As I wrote previously, the AG’s attacks on me and my family has been going on for 11+ years.
And for about 9 months in 2019, I was forced to defend myself.
I was without legal representation because no lawyer was willing to take on the AG.
Ferguson was RELYING ON intimidation to stop people from helping.
I was incredibly blessed — during that dark time in my life — that:
* Thousands of you continued to help me and my family survive:
* Richard, without hesitation, agreed to represent me after he recognized the fundamental flaws in the AG’s case:
FUNDAMENTAL FLAW #1: These are NOT campaign contributions:
And yet Ferguson said they were.
FUNDAMENTAL FLAW #2: The law vests ALL campaign reporting responsibilities with the treasurer and I was never the treasurer (CPA/former IRS investigator Stan Long was the treasurer). So how can I be liable for “failing to report” campaign contributions when these were never campaign contributions and I never had any legal authority (or ability) to report anything because I was never the treasurer?
As conservative activist Glen Morgan observed: “The weirdest part about this litigation against Eyman by the AG’s office was their novel theories invented exclusively for Eyman as this case progressed.”
This whole thing is a complete farce and that’s why it MUST be appealed.
Yesterday, my appeal took a huge leap forward: Richard submitted a 5000-word filing for higher court review.
It is brilliantly written and persuasively argued — I urge you to read it (click on the image to pull it up on your computer/phone screen):

Without your support for my legal defense fund, this brutally dangerous legal precedent never would’ve been challenged.
And Bully Bob Ferguson would’ve immediately targeted others using my case as precedent.
I cannot — I WILL NOT — allow that to happen.
Our appeal is absolutely essential so that together, we can guarantee what the AG has done to me and my family over the past 11+ years NEVER HAPPENS TO ANYONE ELSE EVER AGAIN.
