.April 9, 1998 Gregg R. Bridges Prosecuting Attorney Newton Co. Courthouse Newton County, Mo. 64850 Re: Termination of Candidacy for Associate Circuit Judge Dear Mr. Bridges: As to the possible termination of my candidacy for Associate Circuit Judge, It is my belief that as a citizen of the United States, I meet the age and residency requirements to hold political office. Since this office is a political office, I believe at this time this is an internal party matter. My candidacy at the present time is to be the Libertarian Party's Candidate for Associate Circuit Judge, if the members of my political party decide that they wish me as their candidate for this office, it would be the will of the people. In the form of government described as a Republic, the will of the people is unchallengeable. Since the State of Missouri has an agreement with the Government of the United States to maintain this form of government ( a Republic ) as a condition for Statehood, any violation of conditions necessary to maintain this republican form of government would violate this agreement and invalidate Missouri's statehood. As to the termination of my candidacy, your threat of prosecution is further evidence of my persecution by the State of Missouri, which includes evidence of misprision, by two other Missouri prosecutors, by Attorney General Jeremiah (Jay) Nixon, also ruling in violation of Mo. statute by Mo. judicial officer, and numerous violations of my constitutional rights. These violation include actions in violation of the First, Sixth, and Fourteenth amendments of my rights under the Constitution of the United States. Also your office has failed to prosecute Criminal acts committed against me. I consider your threat of prosecution to be an act of politically motivated coercion. If I do withdraw it will be for fear of further persecution, and not because I believe I have violated the law. I am also aware that the courts consider your office, like the Judiciary, to be above the law. In addition it would appear that a licensed member of the Missouri Supreme Court, under obligation to the Missouri Supreme Court could not be a candidate for office in either, the Legislative, or Executive Branches of Government, as this would be counterproductive to the constitutional requirements for three separate branches of government. Sincerely
Richard J. Doyle, Sr.
