As is often the case, those without a response to an argument resort to ad hominem attacks, as in Rodger McDaniel’s commentary, the rick think differently, in Saturday’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle.
Former state of Wyoming pensioners, such as Mr. McDaniel, must understand that without reform they, like government workers in places such as Pritchard, Alabama, could be left standing at their mailboxes, waiting for a pension check that never arrives.
CHEYENNE – Judge Alan Johnson of the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming approved a settlement in Brophy v. Maxfield today, halting the enforcement of a two-year aggregate contribution limit under Wyoming law. The settlement ends a lawsuit filed by Wyoming Liberty Group attorneys in July that challenged the aggregate limit as an unconstitutional violation of free speech.

The city of Laramie is quick to remind residents where they cannot place political signs. However, the city should announce that residents may place political signs supporting any candidate.
As written, the city’s political sign regulations functionally treat signs differently depending on which candidate the political sign supports. Such regulations more closely resemble rules dictators use than the American constitutional system of democracy.
CHEYENNE, WY – Judge Alan B. Johnson of the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming approved a settlement in the case Wills v. Maxfield today, issuing a consent order that halts enforcement of certain campaign finance laws against minor party and independent candidates and their contributors. The order comes a few weeks after the Wyoming Office of the Attorney General responded to a motion for preliminary injunction, agreeing that injunction should issue.

We won our lawsuit in Williams v. City of Cheyenne earlier this year, overturning Cheyenne’s restrictive sign ordinance that limited Cheyenne residents to displaying two political signs on their lots during election season. Now, election season is upon us, and many Cheyenne residents are exercising free speech with more than two signs.
SHERIDAN, WY – Wyoming Liberty Group attorney Steve Klein testified before the Joint Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Committee today at their first meeting before the 2015 Legislative Session.
