Letter to the Editor: Sheriff Mark Lamb's hypocrisy

letter-to-editor-stv

At the last Board of Supervisors meeting, Sheriff Mark Lamb's hypocrisy and disdain for the Constitution were on full display.

Disregarding his ongoing 3 years of electioneering as a political prop for the insurrectionist and now criminally indicted former president, the Sheriff candidate for U.S. Senate has the unmitigated gall to tell you Board of Supervisors and County Attorney to muzzle the 3 minutes of Call to the Public remarks by me and others.

Three years of electioneering threatened by 3 minutes of Call to the Public.

How dare we criticize Mark Lamb's complicity with the leader of the January 6 violent attack against the constitutionally mandated peaceful transfer of presidential power.

To put this disagreement in context, let me remind you of the Sheriff's various intimidation attempts this past year criticizing the use of Call to the Public by me and other of his critics.

An intimidation campaign came into focus when he approached me in this room and shouted at me and another member of the public that we were, in his words "destroying our country".

I welcome discussion of who is destroying our country as the Sheriff struggles to escape the political hell-hole of lies he dug for himself.

Mr. Chairman, everyone's constitutional right to free speech is a precious right that must be defended against bullying.

I refuse to be bullied by the Sheriff's contrived theatrical imagery -- the big white cowboy hat, the shiny badge, the battlefield vest, the threatening weapon at his hip.

I will not submit to Sheriff Lamb's attempts at censoring my activist speech. And I would hope others, regardless of partisan affiliation and regardless of their vulnerability, will not allow their constitutionally protected speech to be silenced.

If you Members of the Board and the County Attorney attempt to rewrite the rules of Call to the Public to accommodate Sheriff Lamb's electioneering sensitivities, I challenge you to place the topic on the agenda for open debate.

Yes, let's have the discussion on who is destroying our country.

Which party is refusing to accept the outcome of our elections;
submitting false slates of presidential electors;
conducting so-called election audits based on contrived conspiracies;
promoting physical violence against political adversaries;
and who is seeking to limit freedom of speech by, yes, activists committed to the painful truth.

On this Dia de los Muertos, may the Big Lie die.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
