WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR
WITH HELP FROM
Democracy is at stake.
NEVER STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS:
CALL YOUR REP AND SENATORS!
On Monday, the DOJ made their sentencing recommendations in the Roger Stone case, based on the face that he is actually a criminal who lied under oath. Overnight on Monday, Trump tweeted out the unfairness of the sentencing recommendation.
Tuesday, the DOJ announced a revision to the recommendation. Then, the four DOJ prosecutors resigned in protest of the intervention of Attorney General William Barr.
Then Barr announced that that he will be controlling all aspects of cases related to Trump (like the Stone case) which Trump is pleased about. Barr has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on March 31, but that seems much later than needed. Regardless of Barr’s willingness to testify, this is a disturbing and dangerous politicization of the DOJ and is not the behavior of democracies.
Minimal script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Sen/Rep [___] to know that we are very concerned about the following unacceptable actions by Attorney General Bill Barr:
- setting up a Giuliani information backchannel
- taking over all Trump-related cases (how can we even be saying this!)
- slashing Roger Stone’s sentencing recommendations
AW HECK, WE KNOW THEY WON’T CARE
TELL THE DOJ WHAT YOU THINK OF
BILLY BARR HERE
WHO IS THIS GUY???
Meet Daniel Uhlfelder, standing up to bullies
in Northwest Florida of all places.
In 2019, former Republican Arkansas Governor turned Florida Panhandle Man, Mike Huckabee, filed a bar complaint against Florida attorney and activist, Daniel W. Uhlfelder, in an attempt to silence him for speaking out against Huckabee’s attempts to privatize public beaches.
The complaint, widely panned as frivolous in a very-special-snowflake kind of way, has had the most opposite of likely intended consequences, however, as Uhlfelder saw his online following mushroom and has been emboldened to form a new Super PAC which will aid others targeted by high profile bullies.“It’s important to stand up to bullies,” says Uhlfelder. “Weakness just invites further aggression.”
Huckabee’s bar complaint was officially made in retaliation for Uhlfelder posting tweets to his 400 or so followers which were critical of connections between the former governor’s role in the Florida customary use battle that has radiated outward across the state from the panhandle’s South Walton County where Huckabee owns property on the Gulf of Mexico.Calling him a #BeachThief, Uhlfelder had been highly critical of the many documented connections between Huckabee and the passage of the bill. Known locally as the Huckabee Law and the #BadBeachBill, HB631 was signed by former Governor Rick Scott despite his office having received 8 to 1 calls against it.
Huckabee, who bought beachfront knowing people would walk across the sand behind his home, has waged a well documented effort (covered extensively by Florida reporter Steve Bousquet and Stephanie Mencimer of Mother Jones) to thwart multiple local rules and customs.Uhlfelder had also most recently been drawing attention to connections between the former governor, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman.

SCREWING UP AGAIN
OPPOSE SB 1634, SB 1794, and SB 7062
SB 1634 Stargel Parental Rights Forces school teachers and counselors to out students, putting LGBTQ students in harm’s way. Makes accessing healthcare or counseling more difficult for LGBTQ youth, and may lead to removal of any topic a parent says is “harmful” from school curricula. (HB 1059)
SB 1794 Hutson Constitutional Amendments Proposed by Initiative Limits citizens abilities to place initiatives on the ballot; decreases the time period for getting signatures from 2 years to 1; requires petitioners to register as a PAC and places undue burdens on Supervisors of Elections, the Courts and citizens. (HB 7037)
SB 7062 Judiciary Citizen Initiative Raises threshold requirements for the number of petitions signed by electors needed in order for a citizen initiative to amend or revise the State Constitution. Severely limits citizens abilities to place initiatives on the ballot
