First of all folks, this post is “sticky”, meaning it will always be at the top of the main page. When we reach our goal of $5,000, I will allow it to take its proper place in the date sequence. However, there are NEWER posts just below – so don’t sign on, look at this top post and then leave thinking we have not posted anything new.
Our tally is up to $2200. I listed another painting for auction on eBay this afternoon. It is a local establishment, Carney’s in Cape May. Bids begin at $50, and proceeds benefit the Legal Defense Fund.
I created a page with a PayPal Donate Button. Click the button to the left or the link, and it will take you to a page with the button that will allow you to donate using your credit card on a secure server. You do not need to be a PayPal member to use this feature. In addition, I have placed two of my paintings up for auction on eBay.
“Jack, the Evil Bartender” from the Erin Rose, the first painting I auctioned for the defense fund sold. This case is raising eyebrows across the country to those that follow 1st amendment lawsuits, and this painting was purchased by a fan in California.
“Captain Tony’s” in Key West was the second painting I place up for auction, and it too sold. This was purchased by a long-time local supporter of the site.
Every dollar counts, so if you feel that this blog has been a service to the voters of Cumberland County, I am asking for a favor in return. The legal defense will be very expensive. This is a shallow attempt by the unholy forces of the Camden County Democratic Machine and Cumberland County Democratic Organization to extinguish free speech in Cumberland County. This lawsuit is an affront to the constitution. If they succeed in shutting this site down, it will send an icy chill on political discourse throughout the state, regardless of which party is in control.
I want to publicly thank everybody that has been so generous in this trying economy, with donations that did outpace my expectations.
