RE: Freedom of Speech Sec. 1983 Complaint against Assist. State Attorney Amira Fox

Dear Mr. Russe11,

As a longtlme Animal Rights Advocate, I expressed my concem over the lack ofprosecution of
the 4 illegal slaughterhouses that are operating in Lee County on the “Amira Fox for State

Attomey” Facebook Political Public Forum page, Only to have my posts immediately deleted.

That is a violation of Constitutiona11y protected Freedom of Speech rights 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

This resulted in my commentlng infommg “Amira Fox for State A請Omey”, that deleting
COmmentS is a violation of First Amendment Freedom of Speech. And, Still had my posts deleted
as well as others commentmg On my POSt, their comments deleted.

There has been型response from Amira Fox on any posts asking for response. Any supporters of

Amira Fox, attaCking people were not deleted from the Amira Fox for State Attomey Facebook
Page. The only deleted posts were those that were disagreeal)1e or asking questions which the
ChiefAssist. State Attomey did not want to answer.

The policy to delete comments, block individuals from postmg, then calls into question the
investigation and evidence from the Lee County Sheri紺s O能ce with the State Attomey O触ce
in the 4 illegal slaughte血ouses that are allowed to operate with some ofthe most horrific animal

al)uSe Witnessed by ARM Animal Recovery Mission・

(deleted posts attached)

Recently, a Federal District Court Judge ruled President Trump can’t block people to prevent

from expressmg differing opmions on his Tw誼er account “Knight Institute v. Trump’’・ President

Trump’s Twitter account, aS =Amira Fox for State Attomey,, Facebook page is a public forum

and blocking, PreVentmg PeOPle with differing opmions const血tes vleWPOint discrimination,

which violates the First Amendment.

Judge Buchwald wrote, “Because no govemment o触cial is above the law and because all

goverrment o揃cials are presumed to follow the law once the judiciary has said what the law is,
we must assume that the President and Scavino will remedy the blocking we have held to be
unconstitutional. ”

1454 Ocean Shore BIvd., Suite lO6, Ormond Beach FL 32176


The State Attomey O純ce is entrusted by血e Public to uphold the Law; CamOt be mired in

COntrOVersy and distrust by a Chief Assist. State Attomey, Amira Fox that would engage in
Violating pcople’s constitutionally protected rights of Freedom of Speech.

ChiefAssist. State Attomey lS entnrsted by the people to uphold the Law, aS an O純cer ofthe

Court ruming for血e highest position in the 20th Judicial Cireuit of血e State ofFIohda needs to

be held to the highest standard. The State Attomey O能ce camot be above the law.

I fully expect the Honorable State A請Omey Stephen Russell ask ChiefAssist. State Attomey

Amira Fox to immediately reslgn from her position at the State Attomey O能ce for conduct that

is unconstitutional, violates the First Amendment.

I Iook forward to a prompt response to this ma備er.

Sincerely,
