June 1, 2021, in concealment of crime & in violation of the 1st Amendment, Boulder County Colorado District Attorney Michael Dougherty BLOCKED The Hartmann Conspiracy’s Twitter account, @C0RRUPTC0L0RAD0 from accessing, or posting on the official government Twitter page of the Boulder DA.
Dougherty, a public figure, is known to use the account @DADoughertyCO on taxpayer time, to post information of public interest related to his employment in the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office.
On June 1, 2021, The Hartmann Conspiracy publisher Craig Buckley posted a response critical of Dougherty’s involvement in the signing of House Bill 21-1057. Of interest to this site, the House Bill purports to help victims of wage theft. Dougherty’s Tweet was posted Thursday, May 27, 2021 at 10:42AM. Dougherty is presumed to have been at work, and on taxpayer time.
Judge Arnold upheld the fundamental principle established by the Fourth Circuit in Davison v. Randall and the Second Circuit in Knight v. Trump: a public official who uses a personal social media account for official purposes has opened a public forum and cannot, consistent with the First Amendment, block users from accessing their feed.
As many longtime readers of this website are aware, The Hartmann Conspiracy deals exclusively with the years-long attack of Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley by government officials, in support of wage theft. Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty is known to have been in possession of all evidence of crime by government actors posted on this website, since 2018, in violation of his Oath to uphold the law, and in stark defiance of his so-called, “Conviction Integrity Unit”,
Dougherty has unrelentingly concealed this crime, aided and abetted by former Boulder DA Stan Garnett and prosecutor Catrina Weigel, since he took office in March 2018.
The Tweet sent to Dougherty contained a link to evidence contained here on The Hartmann Conspiracy website which implicated Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann in commission of crime, and former Boulder County DA Stan Garnett, and Prosecutor Catrina Weigel as Accessories to Hartmann’s F5 Forgery, and perjury in the First Degree. Dougherty, in his years-long campaign to conceal crime by his colleagues, immediately blocked the “offending” account: @C0RRUPTC0L0RAD0.
Mr. Dougherty seems to be treading a slippery slope. When the government opens a channel of communication to the general public, the Constitution has always prevented it from excluding specific individuals because of their political viewpoints. As explained here blocking individuals from generally accessible government social media feeds is no different. And every federal appeals court that has considered this issue has agreed.
The Hartmann Conspiracy publisher Craig Buckley stated, “If Mr. Dougherty doesn’t like what I have to say in rebuttal to his Tweets, perhaps he shouldn’t conceal, aid, and abet crime”.
This present violation of First Amendment Rights is consistent with a proven pattern and practice of deprivation of rights pervading the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office. A government organization willing to falsify evidence, and suborn perjury to obtain the conviction of an innocent man for having caught a corrupt Judge in crime, would have no compunction about censoring Free Speech associated with proving the man’s innocence.
Just another day at the office for Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty.
