Interesting that you mention Robert Hill, who solicited money by mailing recently telling everyone he was running for Dist 27 legislative seat held by Jeannie Darnielle. Typical craziness.

This is Jesse Hill speaking, here, on October Thirteenth, A.D. 2008.

I obtained a Certificate and Order from a Superior Court of Washington judge re-instating my voting rights; the day before I was served with a lawsuit to challenge my candidacy, I got re-registered to vote...on Monday, July 21st. Although I entered what's called a "Special Appearance" notice with the court within the 15-days requirement, I have not been sent a notice of hearing being docketed on the calendar. This is because I have made the case moot. I am a viable candidate and am listed in the Voters' Pamphlet and Tacoma News Tribune's voter's guide.

Having been a former board member of the ACLU of the Pierce county chapter, I am proud to have been assisted by a number of staff and volunteers in the state office (in Seattle) in helping me through this process-- and preserving my ability to be on the ballot this November, and being a True Choice for Voters, in the General Election.

I continue to be present at Tacoma City Council and Pierce County Council meetings at 3 o'clock and 5 o'clock on Tuesday afternoons.
