Due to all the heat placed upon Senator Adam
Kline, he has written to J.A.I.L. to apologize for the use of his
term "anger-driven assholes." His apology is quoted immediately
I apologize for my poor choice of words. I
answered one e-mail with a rude remark out of frustration from being spammed by
so many groups. Still, it was wrong.
J.A.I.L. has accepted his apology, and has
responded to him as follows.
Thank you for apologizing for your "poor
choice of words." Your verbiage is forgiven. However, more serious than
a "poor choice of words" is the concern of a poor internal attitude
of a very serious problem --all the more important because you
are entrusted by the people as the Chairman of the Senate
The basis for your remark, according
to your apology, is "frustration from being spammed by so many
groups." Senator Kline, as a Senator
and Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, you cannot afford to be
frustrated by members of the public which are crying out for judicial
accountability. You, sir, hold the most sensitive position that anyone could
hold. You face the likelihood of hearing from "anger-driven"
citizenry concerned about the condition of their judiciary more than
anyone else. Your position is not for the impatient or
weak at heart!
Since you use "spamming" as the basis
of your frustration, allow me to address that subject on two grounds.
First, it was originally your unsolicited e-mail that came directly from
your office to J.A.I.L. Before that, I had no knowledge of
you whatsoever, nor had J.A.I.L. sent you anything. Nonetheless, I
do not complain about this unsolicited email from you.
Secondly, you must understand the nature of your
position. As an elected public official, your time is bought and paid for by the
people. The computer you use belongs to the people; your email service belongs
to the people; your time belongs to the people; and the office you occupy
and chair you sit on belongs to the people. Therefore, you are not in the
same position as a private citizen to complain about "spamming." Email received
by a public official on matters of public interest is not "spam." Moreover,
neither of us as a party to this email
exchange was attempting to market a commercial product to the other that either
of us should become "frustrated."
As to our cause, J.A.I.L. is not a social
organization, but a Public Interest First Amendment Redress organization. We are
aggressive --very aggressive! J.A.I.L. is seeking diligently to establish
an independent process for judicial accountability in Washington State.
Such effort reflects directly upon you and the Committee you
Now you may not like or wish to recognize the efforts of J.A.I.L. in
seeking accountability for Washington's judges. However, you are going to
have to deal with the fact that J.A.I.L. is here; that J.A.I.L.
is here to stay; and that J.A.I.L. is not going to go away.
You have to face this fact as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary
Committee. J.A.I.L. can be your best friend, or your worst nightmare.
J.A.I.L. is growing more and more powerful and influential in society
with the passage of time; and will continue to do so until we,
the citizenry through J.A.I.L., are the fear and respect of every
politician. We are not a bunch of wackos, but an amassing block of civilization
from every respected walk of life that you could imagine, including medical
doctors, ministers, law enforcement, and yes, legislators, hardly
deserving of being referred to as "assholes" --although
Senator Kline, it is now well known that your wife
is a sitting Superior Court judge and you are a member of the Bar. Nevertheless,
it behooves you to sit up and take notice of this pressing national
plague that has reached crisis proportions, destroying life, liberty, and
property daily right in your jurisdiction.
Yes, Senator Kline, the judicial system in this country
has overthrown our Constitutional Republic as set up by our Founding Fathers,
who themselves were "anger-driven." (See the Declaration of Independence).
It is the duty of the people to do what is
necessary for their posterity.
Your acceptance of public office is your acceptance
of responsibility to serve the people, to listen to THEIR frustrations
--not be overtaken by your own. Senator, it's time to redirect
your thinking from self-serving arrogance to a
gracious, humble concern for the people whom you are elected to serve.
You are going to be given the opportunity of putting
that concern into practice, when the J.A.I.L. legislation is presented to you
and other legislative officials in Washington State. This legislation is being
presented to legislatures throughout the country, or by the initiative process
in some states. As Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, you will be a key
figure in considering this measure for judicial accountability in
Now that I have your attention, Senator Kline, and have
accepted your apology, let's now work together in a positive effort with
all "frustrations" behind us. In this mutual effort, I am hereby submitting
to you the proposed J.A.I.L. Bill for Washington State. You are to
present this Bill to your Committee for study and review, and then you are
to sponsor it to the entire Senate. As my
further participation in this joint effort with you, I will make myself, or our
counsel, available to meet with you, and/or answer any questions you or the
Committee may have. Passage of this Bill will be not
only for the good of the people, but for the best
interest of the judicial system itself.
Everyone will benefit when accountability, and
thus Truth, becomes the touchstone of the Washington judicial process.
It is upon this point we mutually agree, is it not?
We look forward to a future relationship of dignity and
