Democratic official punishes tea partier for speaking about the Constitution:
"KrisAnne Hall, assistant state attorney in Live Oak, Florida, was fired after she refused to stop speaking to tea party and other similar groups. KrisAnne asked a federal judge for an injunction which would allow her to continue speaking and to prevent her from being fired by her boss, State Attorney Skip Jarvis. Mr. Jarvis fired KrisAnne Hall on Monday, May 24th shortly after receiving a copy of her federal complaint."
"[Jarvis] called [Hall] a good prosecutor, who crossed an ethical line with her speeches and radio appearances.
“'You can’t take a job advocating for the state and go out and take a position against the state,' Jarvis said. 'I advised her from my first learning of her activity that she was free to say and do whatever she desired within the law, but she could not do so while assistant counsel for the state.'”
"[Jarvis] said he felt bad for letting her go since she was 'the only breadwinner in her household' but had 'no other choice...'
"'She was speaking at some political events, some things were anti-state and anti-government,' Jarvis said by phone Tuesday morning. 'I emailed her and said look you can't do that as an assistant state attorney...'
"Jarvis said he knew Hall was speaking at certain gatherings and 'turned a blind eye to it' but when he received a complaint last month that Hall was speaking at gatherings that were 'discussing a desire for less government and smaller budgets,' he said he had to take action."
Less government? Smaller budgets? Shut the front door!
Take Dan Riehl's advice and stay till the end of this video when "the State Attorney says he'd love to have his old assistant back, the one 'before she decided she wanted to be the next Sarah Palin.'"
So if you do your job well, but you offend a sadistic government megalomaniac by reminding him of Sarah Palin, he's free to fire you? I don't think so.
I see the point this disgusting little pissant is trying to make. Democrats think that if you believe in smaller government, constrained by the Constitution, you're a hypocrite to benefit from government in any way.
No job for you!
