Hey KingCast, are you certain you're going to win when you sue Kelly Ayotte, the GOP and/or the City of Nashua if they arrest you at another campaign event?
Oh, yes, I certainly like my odds, but you always have to watch out for a judge who hasn't a clue about the Law, it has been known to happen. But even Judge Robert Lynn, who totally hates me and everything I do, noted that I had a right to run video in his courtroom and to "put it up on blogs or whatever," so as much as he hates me and says "putting up with nonsense is the price of living in a free society" I couldn't care less about his personal opinion, but he knows what the law is, and that my friends..... is all that matters. I don't give a damn about anything else and I don't have to, that's the Law for everyone and I make no apologies for it.
Meanwhile the Nashua Telegraph reported that a jackass judge in Mississippi actually jailed lawyer Danny Lampley over refusing to recite the Pledge of Allegiance....
"I'm speechless. The judge needs a reminder copy of the First Amendment," said Judith Schaeffer, a Washington attorney who, along with Lampley, successfully sued the Pontotoc school district in northern Mississippi in the 1990s to stop students from praying over the intercom. Lampley also was victorious representing a Ku Klux Klan leader when a county in the Mississippi Delta tried to prevent a rally.
"Danny's going to stand up for everybody's principles," she said. "Danny loves the Constitution. He's a staunch defender of constitutional rights."
Lampley was representing a client in a divorce case when he was found in contempt. The judge's order, obtained by The Associated Press, said: "Lampley shall purge himself of said criminal contempt by complying with the order of this Court by standing and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in open court."
Meanwhile I am only slightly surprised to see that Nashua Chief Conley and City Attorney Bennett have ignored my well-crafted complaint about the situation. Attorney Bennett has abdicated his authority to the Police Chief, according to this Telegraph story, even though I specifically warned him not to do that because he has a statutory duty to inform his officers in the field not to arrest me. But apparently he would rather have a lawsuit so that's what I'll give him, as I told the folks over at Implode-Explode Heavy Industries. They also noted that things look great for me on the law in general but because Kelly Ayotte already recognized me as a journalist when she distributed media packs to everyone on the Franconia shooting tragedy.
So what, now I'm not a journalist because she doesn't like what I say? That doesn't play in Peoria, and the events are not private, and I am not inciting a riot or disrupting any of the meetings, so they have no defense. I'll send this off to Attorney Conley and the Chief via Certified Mail to Seal the Deal for when the shit hits the fan, and believe me the shit is going to hit the fan. I'll call to see if Conley plans to issue a written response to my complaint or not, then contact my bail bondsman, a man I've known for 35 years as his son and I were friends in prep school, get that piece sorted because the bullshit has got to stop. This Nashua PD officer clearly knows that the GOP was violating my First Amendment Rights at the Crowne Plaza Joe Arpaio GOP love-fest.
Anyway, back to work on the pending Kelly Ayotte movie, "Momma Grizzly Kelly Ayotte Protects Women's Rights."
