Status of my appeal: lower court ruled, Court of Appeals ruled, now it’s onto the state supreme court. Great amicus brief was filed that supports our position that this whole thing is absolutely absurd.
Please read it and then donate to my legal defense fund so we can get the AG’s ridiculously unconstitutional ruling overturned.

As I trek to Whidbey Island for today’s launch of the signature drive for Larry Jensen’s pro-2nd Amendment Initiative, I wanted to share with you an UPDATE on my appeal.
The lower court rubber-stamped the AG’s ruling.
The Court of Appeals overturned some of it and affirmed other parts of it.
Now it’s the state supreme court’s turn to hear it (which has been briefed and will be argued by my superhero attorney — and former state supreme court justice — Richard Sanders):
Richard is doing a fantastic job highlighting the fundamental flaws in the AG’s ruling.
I’m absolutely thrilled to share with everyone a great amicus brief that was filed in the case in support of our position that this whole thing is absolutely absurd.
It came in from an organization in Phoenix Arizona called “The Goldwater Institute.”
I urge you to read it — it’s incredibly well-written, well-documented, well-sourced.

If Bob Ferguson gets away with this with me, he’ll use my case as a legal precedent and target others. And then our side will start using it to target activists on the left.
It’ll be an all-out war. And it’ll have a chilling effect on all political activity from people across the political spectrum.
And I cannot — I will not — let that happen.
With your help, we will make sure to get the AG’s ridiculously unconstitutional ruling overturned so he’ll never be able to do this to anyone else ever again.
I ask / urge / beg of you to donate to my legal defense
Last August, when the AG took my home and drained all my bank accounts (I was allowed to keep $1500), things shifted from REALLY WANTING help to DESPERATELY NEEDING help.
I urge you to help me survive this political persecution by donating to my legal defense fund.
Please support this effort so I can continue to do what I was born to do.
