Tick, tock! We’re waiting for resignations!

Reps. Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, & Mo Brooks helped set the stage for tragedy. Make ’em resign before they are arrested.

Extreme right-wing activist Ali Alexander, originator of the fraudulentStop the Steal” movement, reported that he had able assistance from Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ-5), Paul Gosar (R-AZ-5), and Mo Brooks (R-AL-5) in planning the January 6th event in DC. “We four schemed up of putting maximum pressure on Congress while they were voting,” Alexander said in a since-deleted video. The plan, he said, was to “change the hearts and the minds of Republicans who were in that body, hearing our loud roar from outside.” Whether the legislators knew that the crowd, riled up by speeches by Trump and others, was going to breach the Capitol and kill people is immaterial. The intent of their event was to scare legislators into changing their vote – overthrowing an election and a democracy for fear for their lives. Not only is that sedition, but with deaths involved, each of these men should face criminal charges of, at minimum, involuntary manslaughter.

Disbar the lawyer/legislators who helped set our country on fire!

(Header quote from earlier Florida Bar complaint against Rep. Matt Gaetz)

  • We have a list of the lawyer/legislators involved in possible ethics violations AND promoting the overthrow of a presidential election here. (Hmmm….they do not seem interested in de-seating themselves!)
  • We have a list of ALL the legislators involved in Trump’s campaign to overthrow the election here.

Action #1: Put the American Bar Association on notice that their professionals have gone rogue.

We’re not focusing on the melting-sideburns guy or the kraken lady. Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-N.J.) has got that covered – he’s filed complaints in five states seeking to disbar Rudy Giuliani and 22 other lawyers affiliated with Trump’s campaign for frivolous lawsuits and “conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.” More that 1,500 lawyers have already contacted the American Bar Association (ABA) to agree with him.

We have a separate post to deal with all seditious legislators, lawyers or no, here.

Right now, we’re just looking at the LAWYERS who also HAPPEN TO BE LEGISLATORS who are destroying democracy for political gain. Trump didn’t do this on his own, but four years under a lawless president with no discernable consequences for his offenses, may have encouraged these dual-action figures to let their hair down a bit. They may believe that, as elected officials, they can enjoy the same immunity for lying, or sedition, as their non-lawyer colleagues. But they’d be wrong. Not if they want to remain as lawyers. So, let’s give them the freedom enjoyed by their non-licensed friends, by having them disbarred for violating a foundational rule governing those licensed as lawyers.

Instructions:

Copy/paste this letter or write a snappier one of your own and send it to the American Bar Association at gpsld@americanbar.org or snail mail to American Bar Association, Government & Public Sector Lawyers Division, 1050 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20036.

Action #2: Fill out some petitions!

  • Sign this petition to the Florida Bar in support of the disbarment of Matt Gaetz here.
  • Sign Rep. Pascrell’s petition to disbar Giuliani and his gang here.

Action #3: Track ’em down, state by state. Ask governing agencies to disbar their seditionist lawyers.

OK, this action is EASIER THAN IT LOOKS! You can go total “COPY & PASTE” for your chosen lawyer/legislators, which will actually just take a few minutes, or you can personalize your letters!
