1. Defendant Kelly Ayotte is former Attorney General of the State of New Hampshire and current candidate in the 2010 U.S. Senate race. In her capacity as Attorney General Judge Timothy Vaughn ORDERED her to provide the original dash cam video from Franconia Police Officer Bruce McKay’s cruiser to Plaintiff as an investigative journalist. KingCast v. Ayotte et al., Grafton 2007-268, Attachment 1.
And as for you Ryan, you little Hitler Youth wannabe, I might personally name you along with GOP Nashua City Committee Communications Tzar Di Lothrop. Whatever the case you'll be a likely witness at some point so don't go too far away, son. I've got a special treat just for you]:
Anyway, King's video is entertaining mainly because of what happens to him: A GOP hausfrau whacks his camera with a pamphlet; some Republican crone orders him out of the building; and the local cops force him to amscray under threat of arrest, even though he's credentialed and there are plenty of other media types there. The video's a tad long at 12 minutes-plus, but worth every second.
On 2 October 2010 The Defendants co-sponsored and coordinated a rally at a VFW post 483. Nashua Police Lieutenant John Fisher greeted Plaintiff immediately as he got off his motorcycle and told him “Mr. King you are staying on the sidewalk.” Plaintiff inquired “I need to understand, to get it straight, officer are there other media here?” to which Fisher replied “The thing YOU need to understand is that YOU are not coming inside.”
At that precise moment the Nashua Telegraph’s Grant Morris walked outside and ran a video interview of Plaintiff documenting the First Amendment Free Press violation that was published by the Telegraph the following day. This is a pattern and practice of the GOP; McCain ejected black reporter Stephen Price without explanation in 2008 while white reporters were allowed to stay. http://www.pensitoreview.com/2008/08/03/black-reporter-removed-by-mccain-security-in-florida-whites-allowed-to-stay/
In Nashua, every other reporter at the VFW rally, including white stringers without direct ID badges from large media, were permitted to enter the rally.
