Please Help Fund My Appeal!
Background: Earlier this year, I was convicted in a Brooklyn federal courthouse of a conspiracy against rights for participating in a viral meme (sh*tposting) on Twitter.
We are challenging this unjust prosecution on multiple grounds, including the First and Fifth Amendments and that venue in Brooklyn was improper.
My rights at trial were further violated by prosecutorial gamesmanship, including the deliberate withholding of evidence until mid-trial, the manipulation of a “cooperating witness” and the manufacturing of his testimony, and the bringing of a case with insufficient evidence in an arbitrarily chosen federal district that was politically favorable to the prosecution.
Please join the fight and stop this political weaponization and abuse of federal law dead in its tracks by donating to and praying for my appeal, and my family, in this difficult time.
Needless to say, a federal appeal is extraordinarily expensive.
There are multiple ways to donate, including GiveSendGo (please consider making a recurring monthly donation). Other ways to give include tax-deductible nonprofit, crypto, and cash, check or money order. I hope you by will consider helping myself and my family (I am newly married with a beautiful son on the way) defray these expenses and fight for the rights of all Americans.
Thank you for your consideration of this important matter, and God bless.
