Dan Choi’s Legal Team Goes For Broke By Comparing Obama To Nixon

Last time we checked in on Dan Choi’s free speech case against the White House, the judge and Choi’s legal defense team both agreed that Obama had used “vindictive prosecution” against Choi—that is, the government singled Choi out and gave him a harsher punishment than usual just because he repeatedly chained himself to the White House fence in protest of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” In response, government prosecutors said that “vindictive prosecution” defenses could not be used in this trial because such defenses have to be entered during pre-trial motions and not during the trial, as was done in this case.

They’re right actually, but perhaps sensing that the “vindictive prosecution” defense won’t fly, Choi’s lawyers have filed 59-page legal brief that basically compares what’s happening to Nixon’s Watergate scandal. The only problem—they’re nothing at all alike.

The Washington Blade explains why the comparison fails:

[According to the brief,] “the paper trail of this government persecution of Lt. Choi led – like the Watergate tapes snaked their way back to President Nixon – directly to President Obama himself, who was/is not only personally opposed to gay equality, but was, as the self-described legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., deeply humiliated by being criticized by Lt. Choi and others for enforcing discriminatory laws (like “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”) against gay Americans”…

[Choi's lawyer] has argued that a chain of e-mails between former gay White House aide Brian Bond; the U.S. Park Police, who arrested Choi at the protest; and the Secret Service indicates that the White House may have been involved in orchestrating the prosecution. But no evidence has surfaced to show Obama was aware of the e-mails, and prosecutors say the charging decision was a legitimate, legal action made by Park Police.

Basically, Choi’s lawyers screwed up by not thinking of this defense earlier and now that the prosecution has filed a “writ of mandamus” asking a higher court to deny the tardy defense, they have resorted to a heretofore baseless comparison between Obama and Tricky Dick.

It ain’t gonna work, boys. And calling the President a 70s era crook ain’t gonna help things either.

      I wonder how many more times Choi is gonna get in hot water. Chaining himself to things continuously is also going to the extremes it makes gays look insane.

      Choi may be a mic hog or whatever, but he is right about this being a vindictive prosecution.

      Queerty does this story a disservice by not putting this prosecution alongside the Obama administration’s unprecedented war on whistleblowers.

      http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_greenwald/2011/02/25/whistleblowers

      The reality is that Obama may be OK on gay rights but his record on civil liberties is appalling. He’s even worse than George W. Bush.

      http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-turley-civil-liberties-20110929,0,7542436.story

      Over all, I’ll be forced to vote for Obama because he’s the lesser of two evils. But, the lesser of two evils is still not great. :-(

      Whether we like his antics or not, I do believe that the numerous protests against Obama (like Choi’s and like ones at pro-Obama fundraisers or rallies) HAS had an impact. MLK didn’t just sit behind his laptop and write to his legislators or rant on various LGBT websites. He was a radical that motivated people to demand change from their government and from society. He spoke up and was hated by many. He was hated so much that eventually he was assassinated. But, a movement was seen. The discrimination what occurring became more public. If LGBT individuals want faster change, we need to speak up. Yes, it needs to be legal and mature. But, it still needs to be taking a public stand, not just silent and accepting the status quo of the lack of LGBT equality. When it comes to people standing up for LGBT rights, only a few names are nationally recognized by the LGBT community. Otherwise, we rely upon lawsuits by a few, for society to slowly change, rants, etc. Like I said, I think that these protestors DO bring these LGBT issues to the surface. These are the people taking RISKS for civil rights.

      Gee, lets see, a few years ago there was no talk of getting DADT repealed. Obama’s White House said there would be NO repeal at the current time. Choi Starts chaining himself to things, and we get grass roots protests, sit in’s in Pelosi’s offices which make her force a repeal down the White House’s throat and funny enough, now We have a DADT repeal. Oh yes, he really hurt us.

      This is the typical line from the HRC bots. Remember, they were the same people trying to tell people NOT to file lawsuits for gay rights because it might upset people, and not to protest or pressure our “Friends” in Congress. That we should all sit back and do nothing.

      If we had done that DADT would still be in place.

      MS. GEORGE: Okay. I just want to know if the Court is considering the issue of selective prosecution/vindictive prosecution as a theory of the defense or will the Court–

      JUDGE FACCIOLA: I decline to answer that question on the ground that I have answered it innumerable times. I have explained to you — once again, the defendant during his testimony yesterday explained to us that he did engage in certain behavior in March. He engaged in similar behavior in April. He engaged in what he believed was similar behavior in November. In March and April he was treated in a certain way. In November, he was treated much more harshly in his view and he insists that that was done vindictively. It was done to single him out and to punish him for the exercise of his First Amendment rights.

      That is not selective prosecution in the traditional way. But is articulated by reference to the Fifth and 14th Amendments where there is an issue whether there is a different treatment among people who fall within a protected class. So that all the people who are of a particular race are treated one way and all the people of a different race are treated another way is a more subtle application of the principles of equality of treatment guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment.

      Under that principle, it is impermissible for the United States to differentiate among people and the manner in which it prosecutes them on the basis of the speech they have stated.

      The defendant’s position is: I said something in March, I said something in April and I said something in November. The reason I was treated in November differently from the March and April is, by November, I began to offend the United States by what I was saying to the point that they treated me differently; and therefore, my rights under the First Amendment and the Fifth Amendment were violated.

      Now whether you call that selective prosecution or vindictive prosecution or Bermuda onions is of little moment to me. What I’ve tried to do is articulate the constitutional basis that underlies the defense. And that constitutional basis is that it is impermissible for the Government of the United States to treat people differently on the basis of what they have said.

      THE COURT: No, you may not because I’d like to say, first of all, I am in this case wearing two hats that I always wear when I’m the finder of fact. I’m wearing the hat of the finder of fact, what happened here and have you established the defendant’s guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. I am also handling the legal hat on which I am compelled to rule on the issues of law that emerge.

      @Kev C:

      The judge is annoyed, justifiably, by the government’s seeking of an extraordinary writ to “go over his head” to get an appellate court to agree that he’s abused his discretion.

      The government has accused a citizen of a crime. That is a gravely serious matter. A criminal defendant should be allowed to make his case in the way he chooses by putting up any legal defense he feels is justified. The defense’s strategy should not be determined by the prosecution.

      The government is trying to stack the deck here, and railroad a guy — that is wrong regardless of how you personally feel about Choi.

      Check your datebook. At the time Choi was engaging in his little stunt (Nov 15, 2010), Obama had already delivered 1) House passage of repeal; 2) passage of repeal by the Senate Armed Services Committee, and; 3) Senate floor consideration of repeal. At time time of Choi’s juvenile actions, repeal was being fillibustered by the Senate Republicans. Far from doing nothing, Obama already had the ball on the 10 yard line while Choi was protesting him rather than the Senate GOP.

      As for Dr. King, he went to jail because of his heroism. He didn’t do stunts and then cry like a baby when they actually arrested him. Choi is a clown.

      You are claiming that OBAMA moved the ball to the 5 yard line. THAT is how I know you’re an HRC bot. Everybody else knows that Obama was actually an impediment originally. The White House STATED that there would be no repeal that year. IT was grass roots pressure on Congress and THEN Pelosi that forced the repeal to be voted on in spite of White House objections.

      Merely agreeing not to veto something doesn’t make Obama a hero and yet you want to give him much much more credit than any of the activists. Your agenda is showing.

      Party before people! That’s the slogan isn’t it, Daniel? I’m personally sick of people who pander to the Democratic Party and Obama and give them passes where they don’t deserve them. There are plenty of people who follow the policy of putting the good of the Democratic Party ahead of gay people themselves. And I consider that shameful. Choi is right. The problem with the comparison is that the fraud and harm of Obama’s “stimulus” packages is much greater than Nixon’s harm. Nixon had the decency to resign, while Obama seeks a second term. The harm Nixon did was relatively short term, while Obama’s will have long term consequences. Nixon got us out of a war while Obama put us into a new one and continued two others that he promised he would end, and hasn’t. Nixon lied to American citizens. Obama just had one assassinated without a trial and with secret evidence that only the government knows about, but which was never seen by a judge. His administration has deported more people from the US than previous ones. His people said they would prosecute medical marijuana and yet they continue to ratchet up federal raids. He has repeatedly lied.

      Obama needs to go. This doesn’t mean that the Republicans should win, they aren’t very good either, except Gary Johnson who is pretty decent. But Obama is a disaster and deserves one term status. I had hope he would be good in some areas but he’s been a disappointment. What we need is a middle-of-the-road party, one that is socially liberal and fiscally sound. Neither the Republicans represent the vast middle anymore.

      Well, first the trial judge allowed the defense to be used. Second, writs of mandate are very rarely considered, let alone granted. Rather, the appellate court could simply deny the govenment’s writ and consider it on appeal. So the mere fact that a writ petion’s been filed isn’t so much of a big deal.

      That said, court’s aren’t all that keen on hyperbole, and this reaches new heights. I really think Choi needs to just move on. He was effective when he spoke on an even keel. Now, however, it’s really kind of embarassing for him and for us. But mostly him.

      Give Pelosi and the congressional Democrats the credit if you wish.

He picked his target at what would get him personal attention, not what was obstructing DADT repeal. Like I said, he’s a twerp.

      All you are doing with your temper tantrums is showing me that not only aren’t you bored, but that I am so important in your world that you have no choice but to get angry and stamp your feet at every single word I say.

      @Kurt:

      No Kurt, actually you are inventing a conversation that did not happen. What I said was:

      Obama merely agreeing to not veto the DADT repeal, AFTER fighting to not have it come up, forcing Rep Alcey Hastings to pull back the first incarnation of the bill AND inserting extra time delay hurdles to it, does not qualify him as a hero in this situation.

      I made no comment about Choi. You are creating that in your own head.

      LOL omg another one who thinks too highly of themselves.Seriously do hypocrites like yourself even KNOW what humility IS? Do I need to get you a dictionary little boy and point it out to you? Rolling eyes Anyways little boy do NOT ever speak to me as if I am a child .Nice lie btw arrogant one I have not had a temper tantrum here Im 30 years old Im an adult not a child.So I suggest you not only lose your ego I also suggest NOW you get over yourself and stop assuming that you have me pegged.Thank god you do not know me here much less in real life and if you think you know someone based on a few comments online then you are severely deluded beyond words.Run along now child I won’t have someone treat me with condescension and patronizing attitudes period.

      And once again, I write a few words and you write long responses, another temper tantrum. Nice of you to let me know just how important I am to you. How sad and again, unself aware you are.

      Well, that’s close enough that we can be in concord and harmony. We respectfully disagree about the President and you are not taking issue with my observation that Choi’s stunt is one of a silly twerp.

      Hi Kurt,

      I feel that the movement needs people out in front to get the attention. Remember, CNN, NOW calls Choi about gay rights, when they used to call MAggie Gallagher or Joe Solomnase.

      You have name called and all I did was point it out. Flag me all you want. I have violated nothing, you on the other hand have been nothing but insulting and continually proving just how important I am apparently because you seem to think of nothing else.

      What I think about is my father A LOT you arrogant sorry representation of the gay community.I suggest you get over yourself already.Just look at you you are treating me like a child as if I am your little experiment as if you are trying to prove something about ME when you only prove less and less about YOURSELF.Once again flagged you are indeed harassing me you moron because you will not leave me alone that IS harassment.Looks like you are the one OBSESSED with me this lowly little commoner is not obsessed with you in the least I dont even know you and DONT WANT TO KNOW YOU period.My final comment to you unless you would like to continually be flagged until you get kicked off this site permanently.Your decision hope you make the right one.Finally get some humility you definitely do not have a trace of that you’re like someone else here in that area gee wonder who that could possibly be? :D

      @Michael:

      You’ve attacked Little Kiwi, you’ve called me moron and a host of other names, you keep claiming you are being harassed and yet continually talk and talk and talk to me. Just to put it in perspective for you….

      If somebody files a restraining order against another person claiming that they are harassing them, it becomes void if THEY contact that person.

      So you claim I’m harassing you and yet….you certainly keep on talking to me. If we go by word count, you’ve spoken to me probably about 5 times as much as I have spoken to you. You’re like the girl who claims she hates some boy and to prove it she talks about nothing else but him.

      I just keep wondering how many times you can respond with insults and attacks over and over even though you claim to not care about what I say.

      @Cam:

      Let me guess YOU never do any wrong? I thought so.I will once again point out a word YOU know nothing about which is HUMILITY.

      You are also one to talk you have been treating me this entire time as if I am stupid beneath you and your pathetic little experiment.Well Im not all I have been doing this entire is RESPONDING to you.You are the one pathetically trying to attempt to psychoanalyze me and I do not care one iota what you think to begin with.Ive said this plenty of times I despise your kind you make gay americans look horrible especially with your arrogant egotistical haughty behavior.You claim I have attacked people and you are full of shit because I know I havent.I accept responsibility for my actions but many of you NEVER do probably because in your ego filled minds NONE of you ever think you could possibly do any wrong.

      How pathetic as I said thats the problem with your kind no humility no class no decency in any of you.Good luck with that hope you grow some of those things before you die.

      Hilarious also that you are here attempting to defend someone who has mocked the death of my father my social anxiety disorder my boyfriend my long distance relationship my life in general and also has told people to go hang themselves here.You are just as hypocritical as he is.Look in a mirror you are the problem here not me and until you are capable of not trying to talk down to me and treat me with respect you will never get any from me period.Im not a girl either so dont even try that pathetic arrogant crap with me as if you have me pegged.No you don’t I definitely have YOU pegged though you’re transparent as it can possibly get.Flagged again.
