From the March 2002 Idaho Observer:
Activists go on tour to stop judicial tyranny in Idaho
If every I.O. reader would commit to gathering 100 signatures, judicial accountability would be on the ballot for the November elections.
All Idahoans need to do is amass just short of 44,000 qualified petition signatures and Judicial Accountability Initiative Law (J.A.I.L.) will be on the ballot for the upcoming November elections. If every Idaho resident that reads of The Idaho Observer would just gather 100 signatures each, we could bring judicial accountability to a popular vote next fall.
Judges have reserved for themselves blanket immunity that prevents them from being held accountable to the public for their behavior no matter how lawlessly or unethically they behave on the bench and in their personal lives.
For the first time in recent memory pro-American amd pro-justice activists have an opportunity to stike a blow right at the heart of the government machinery taxing, regulating and imprisoning the American people into moral, spiritual and economic bankruptcy. If judges can be made accountable to the public through citizen grand juries assessing the merit of claims of judicial abuse, then they can be made to uphold the constitutions they swear an oath to protect.
Once judges are compelled to rule in accordance with the Constitution or face civil and/or criminal prosecution, the people will experience the return of justice to their courtrooms.
Since judges will also be ruling against unconstitutional laws, the legislature will find itself being reversed in our courts and will be forced to conform with constitutional law.
Consider this your call to activism. If you know what is happening and you love your country, you will help get J.A.I.L. 4 Judges on the ballot in November. Through all of our efforts, J.A.I.L. will become the law of the land in 2003. See pages 11-14 for details on how you can participate in the most important campaign of our lives.
Pro-justice activists tour Idaho promoting J.A.I.L.
Idaho Judicial Accountability Initiative Law (J.A.I.L.) 4 Judges decided that their state will be the first to pass judicial accountability legislation through the citizens' initiative process. All five members of the tour are seasoned activists. All of them agree that delivering the J.A.I.L. message to an entire state one town at a time is the most activistic thing they have ever done.
