Larry Klayman is a singularly obsessed Clinton hater. He's also a guy with a law degree, but his lawyering skills are so bizarre he was actually removed as Executive Director of Judicial Watch and replaced with Tom Fitton, who was responsible for shoveling the Clinton email story all over the media during the election.
Now that the election is in the rear view mirror, leaving recounts and the prospect of creeping fascism in the future, Klayman is jumping on the money train.
In an interview with Newsmax, Klayman called for fundraising for his new organization, Freedom Watch, in order to match what Jill Stein raised so he can "legally bury" the Clintons forever and ever amen.
“We need to finish the Clintons off, legally,” Klayman told Newsmax TV. “They need to be dead and buried, legally, because they’re going to come back like the Wicked Witch. A house needs to be dropped on her right now.”
Klayman and his group, Freedom Watch, hope to intervene in the recount as his previous group, Judicial Watch, did in 2000, when the conservative group conducted its own tally of Florida votes during the Bush-Gore presidential election.
“We just want a fair result, we’re not favoring anybody,” Klayman said. “But these people are criminals, they’re crooks.”
No, this is utter bullsh*t. No other word for it fits. What Klayman wants is to raise some big bucks so he can be a player in the right-wing scam field.
In his interview with Newsmax, he specifically called for donations to match Stein's 7.5 million, but you know, here's the thing. If they want to be a part of the recount, they don't have to raise money to do it. Stein already did that. At the end of 2015, Klayman had nearly $2 million in the bank. Some of that was probably spent in his quixotic efforts to defend Ammon and Cliven Bundy, but he's got some deep pockets behind him.
He doesn't need to go on TV and raise money. He just wants to build yet another mailing list to bilk senior citizens out of more of their Social Security checks, using hate as his primary motivation.
It's just a money and info grab. No more, no less.
