I am suing the Trump Presidential campaign and alt-right media personalities who have falsely accused me of manipulating the 2020 Presidential Election, and put my life in danger.
Just days after the election, Eric Coomer, an employee of Dominion Voting Systems, was baselessly accused of committing treason against the United States and manipulating the November 3rd election. While these accusations started with fringe alt-right personalities on YouTube on November 9th, they were quickly amplified by right-wing television media and the Trump Presidential campaign. These lies have become the basis of their claims to “Stop the Steal” leading to the January 6 insurrection. They are still promoting The Big Lie today.
The conspiracy theories trumpeted by the right placed Eric at the center of the unfounded claims of fraud in the 2020 election. The right’s disinformation campaign personally targeted him forcing him into hiding as death threats to him and his family escalated. This has all but ended his distinguished 15-year career in supporting free and fair elections.
These dangerous conspiracy theories have consequences for real people, and for our democratic institutions. The right’s use of disinformation, public doxing, and tearing at the foundations of our democratic processes must end.
For this reason, and to clear his name and professional reputation, Eric has filed a suit against:
But Eric needs our help to hold these individuals and the irresponsible right-wing media accountable. A legal battle against powerful, well-funded figures like Trump, Powell, and Newsmax is likely to drag on for years. Legal fees and expenses could easily exceed $2,000,000. Worse, under the Trump Administration’s 2017 tax bill, it is more difficult financially for individuals to take legal action against a business. Even if Eric were to succeed legally, he would have to bear the entire tax burden for any settlement, including the legal fees and expenses.
Please donate what you can to help Eric clear his name, regain his reputation, and hold these individuals and organizations accountable so this kind of massive disinformation campaign never happens to anyone else. All donations will go to legal fees and expenses to fight these false claims. Any excess funds will be donated to the Stanford University Freeman Spogli Institute to support their initiatives to combat misinformation in elections.
While eternally grateful for your support, Eric recommends you select “anonymous” when you donate as he does not want others to face the kinds of attacks he has endured simply because he was standing up for free and fair elections.
Thank you! Together we can ensure the integrity of our democratic processes!
