Help Russ Howard and Steve Cicero at the Same Time
You may already know about the horrifying, almost unbelievable, injustice the Orwellian-named "Fair Political Practices Commission" (FPPC) inflicted on Russ Howard and Steve Cicero of Californians Against Corruption (CAC).
In the 1990s, CAC ran a successful campaign to boot rabid anti- gunner David Roberti from his seat of power in the California state Senate. In retaliation, Roberti cronies on the FPPC punished Howard and Cicero by slamming them with an administrative fine of $808,000 for minor technical violations of election reporting law. (Howard temporarily withheld names and addresses of CAC donors while CAC was being criminally harassed for its activities).
It was the largest administrative fine in American history.
It was larger than all other fines the FPPC had levied in its entire 15-year history.
It was far, far larger than fines levied in cases of blatant political money-laundering and influence-peddling.
It was imposed without a trial.
And it crudely, shockingly violated the Eighth Amendment protection against excessive fines.
So it's now up to the U.S. Supreme Court
If the nine justices in Washington, DC, don't overturn this outrage, Howard and Cicero's lives will be ruined. With interest, they'll owe more than $1.5 million to the corrupt, vengeful political establishment of California. But they've petitioned the Supreme Court. Their case should be coming up this spring. They're also planning a civil-liberties lawsuit against the FPPCand The Liberty Crew is asking you to step up and support these men who've been fighting this long and terrible fight for all our sakes.
