* * Senator Kline Apologizes To J.A.I.L.
- J.A.I.L. News Journal
Los Angeles, California January 17, 2002Senator KlineApologizes To J.A.I.L.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 below.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.Adam KlineJ.A.I.L. has accepted his apology, and has responded to him as follows.Dear Senator Kline: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 Judiciary Committee.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 chair.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 "anger-driven."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 Washington.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 mutual respect.Sincerely,Ronald BransonAuthor/FounderThe Judicial Accountability Initiative Law
