I am being sued for something that happened at the December 2000 Freep of Joe Lieberman.
JimRob has allowed me to hold an internet fundraiser to help defray the costs of my lawyers fees.
I am broke and thousands of dollars in debt, and depending on how much I can collect here, I amnot sure if I can continue or work to sign a mutual release if offered.
Right now, we have ended the discovery phase, and are awaiting the deposition of the man who accused me of assaulting him that day.
That charge is a lie.
The following story below is my short account of what happened that day.

Please help me on this fundraiser
I have been accused of something that I didn't do
And I am being sued for it!
On December 2, 2000, I held a rally in New Haven in front of then Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman's house, doing what little I could to show support for the newly elected President Bush, and to show my frustration at the Democrats in their attempts to overturn the genuinely won election by George W. Bush.
At the end of the rally, Former Ct State Senator Tom Scott was speaking on the back of my truck, when all of a sudden the lead Democrat supporter of the counter rally held at the same location, started to approach my truck, then turned and took 3 or 4 running steps and jumped on the bed of my truck in a manner that I thought he was going to attack someone on the truck: either me or Tom.
I stepped to his side and held out my arm to stop him as he ran into my arm and immediately stopped his forward motion.
I kept my hand held out in front of him to prevent him from going forward on the truck bed and get closer to Tom who was speaking at the time.
After 3 seconds or so, the man who jumped on my truck immediately turned and jumped down off the truck into the arms of the Police who quickly escorted him away from my truck.
The whole incident lasted no more than 5 seconds it seems.
Tom and I decided to not press charges for assault or trespass on my truck, and let him go.
9 months later, the man filed suit against me for assault.
I am not joking.
9 months later.
He claims I grabbed his throat.
Look at the picture. This picture was taken December 2, 2000.
That is the man who claims I was grabbing his throat. My hand is on his chest, not his throat. My hand was NEVER on his throat, nor was it ever near his throat!
Why I made this website
Because of the lawsuit, I am forced to endure thousands of dollars of debt that I cannot afford. I have been employed only in temporary positions since 2001 when telecom collapsed, and am deep in debt.
This man is trying to use the legal system to get tens of thousands of dollars from me that does not belong to him, and he is doing it by claiming I assaulted him, which I did not do at all.
CAN YOU PLEASE HELP??
I am forced to ask, but can you consider donating to help me pay my legal fees?
Because of this false charge against me, I am now over $8000 in debt to my lawyer, and we cannot continue until I can pay my bill!
Could you please send me $5 or $10 or $20 to help my legal fees?
If you can, Please send a check or money order to me directly at:
PO BOX 9002
Forestville, Ct 06011-9002

Please read this, the 2000 election is not over, and I am being sued for the Lieberman Freep of December 2000 rally in front of his house.
I need your help.
Please ping the entire planet on this.
Marked for later.
This is a MAJOR Marine Bump, one that I am forced to do and beg for help in.
I can`t promise much RaceBannon, but I`ll see what I can do. I`m not much better off than you, but still better. I`m sure some help is on the way.
Bumps are free.
I can only do a small something, but if there are lots of us, we can be of help. Mailing it in.
I can't give much either, but I will put my small contribution in the mail tomorrow. Good luck and stay strong. You will win this.
I would be grateful for anything. If every Freeper who reads this, and sends in a couple dollars, I will make up the $8900 that I owe or so, plus the extra in taxes I will have to pay because this is not tax deductible, this has to be considered income.
Please bump this to everyone you know.
If you know anyone who is a columnist, please encourage them to write something on this.
This accusation is a totally false accusation, and several Freepers were there to witness this event, and they have volunteered to testify on my behalf, along with town counsel persons in local government in that area.
I have had this lawsuit over my head for 3 years now, andit is based on a lie. I never grabbed this man's throat as he claims. And now, I have to pay out thousands of dollars to make the lawsuit go away with either a signed release or a victory in court. And Victory is not guaranteed in any court these days for a Conservative...
Viking Kittens! Can you help?
Thank you for anything!
I am embarrassed to have to do this, but I am forced to. This case has already caused me to cash in a 401K retirement fund to pay my legal fees. I am unemployed and collecting.
Bump and a promise. Small donation coming your way soon.
RKBA, looks like we've got a LAWSUIT that needs paving!
You're welcome. And don't be embarrassed. What kind of friends are we if we don't help each other when it's needed?
I'll help you Race. Hope you get enough to countersue the RAT!
bump for later help
This is unreal. I'll add you to my prayer list.
Prayers for your efforts.
I will send out a check first thing in the morning. These people are nothing but thugs, and using the legal system for their thuggery.
Y'all please ping the group.
Oh, if only I knew about FreeRepublic back in 2000! You all carried the fight for me and I didn't even know it. I can't give much but every little bit helps and is a nice way to say thanks for fighting the good fight. OK, fight might not be the best word under these circumstances but you know what I mean :)
I'd like to know who is behind this guy. It would seem that this is an intimidation tactic.
Race needs our help.
Geez, I bet all this makes you wish that you went ahead and blasted him. Hope you have witnesses, preferably the police officers - unfortunately 9 months of delay can make that unlikely.
Anyway, you've always seemed like a stand-up guy to me. A modest contribution is in the mail and I wish you well. Keep us posted!
Unfortunately this is very real.
This is what the battle is about concerning liberals and Conservatives.
I defended someone, and I get sued for it.
Knock it off; this isn't about politics; I'm sick to death of you self-rightous sanctimonious judgmental posters.
You are talking to one of the most respected posters on this forum; he has been in the trenches for FR for longer than you've been able to spell; and he did it all so you could come on here and post that tripe about him.
You have no shame.
I hit abuse. It's totally inappropriate.
I suggest sending a brief letter to Mark Levin. Maybe call his producer.
naughty naughty -Be charitable
I have some prominent witnesses, but unless I can raise a HUGE amount of cash, this may just get signed off in a mutual release or something.
Because of some particular circumstances, That would be best, for I am not alone in this.
Let's keep this bumped to the top. I'll help where I can RB. And I'll pass this on to a few friends.
I'll do my part.
His church is a 501(c)(03).

This organization is not required to file an annual return with the IRS because it is a church. It is a 501(c)(03) public charity.
No need for you to feel embarrassed. I should be the one who should be embarrassed because all I can offer are words of support because financially I'm strapped.
I have been reading the thread and some of the posters make me ill. The kind of people you do not want with you in any battle. Sanctimonious is the most polite term I can think of.
God bless you, man, you'll definitely be in my prayers!
That man has a valid opinion of what I do freely admit saying and where I stand on certain topics.
However, I have helped others on this site regardless of their views. There has only been a couple, and I did not ask what they believed first.
And, Yes, I would buy Sinkspur a chocolate milk...if we ever meet...
Oh, no! Race, I don't have money to spare, but I wish you well.
I'll help you. Will mail out the check tomorrow morning.
