Developer seeks voter initiative to bulldoze Souter's home

From WorldNetDaily...

The California property-rights activist who is determined to have a New Hampshire town seize the property of Supreme Court Justice David Souter under eminent domain plans to travel there this weekend to meet with local residents working on the project.

As WorldNetDaily reported, Los Angeles advertising entrepreneur Logan Darrow Clements has spearheaded a campaign to have the city of Weare, N.H., condemn Souter's property, a modest 200-year-old farmhouse on eight acres, in retaliation for his vote approving the seizure of homes in Connecticut in the Kelo v. City of New London case....

Because the Board of Selectmen of Weare has rejected Clements' request to condemn the property, Darrow hopes to use a ballot initiative to do the job.

According to Darrow's website, the initiative would effect the seizure of the property and clear away local laws that might hinder the hotel project. The activist says he'll meet with residents Monday, hoping to begin the process to place a measure on the ballot in March. He says only 25 signatures are needed to put the initiative before the voters....

"Whoever said this project 'will never happen' might find themselves sitting in the Just Desserts Café eating crow pie next to David Souter," Clements said in a statement.

I'm happy to see Clements continuing to pursue this. While some feel it is wrong to target a judge this way, I think it's high time some of these judges got what they so often give.

Re: Developer seeks voter initiative to bulldoze Souter's home

Danny Carlton is right that "it's high time some of these judges got what they so often give." After all, you reap what you sow.

I for one will be laughing with joy if Souter loses his home. Perhaps this will make some judges stop and think about the real life consequences of their decisions.
