George Zimmerman announces lawsuit against Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren for $265 million

According to the conservative Washington Times, reported that Zimmerman is accusing the Democrats of “maliciously defam[ing]” him by using the killing of Martin “as a pretext to demagogue and falsely brand Zimmerman as a white supremacist and racist to their millions of Twitter followers.”

“The obvious intent of Buttigieg and Warren’s Tweets is alleged race-baiting, in an attempt to draw African American votes during this Democrat presidential primary season,” Tea Party gadfly lawyer Larry Klayman said in a statement.

“Both defendants, Buttigieg and Warren, are alleged in the complaint to have acted with actual malice, as it is widely known that Zimmerman was acquitted of murder based on self-defense,” the statement said.

25. I know the kind of circles around Seminole County.

 

Wouldn't surprise me if someone that is very connected to the local Republican party tapped Zimmerman on the shoulder and suggested the lawsuit. They probably have lawyers lined up to serve him.

33. Larry Klayman, quoted in the article, is Judicial Watch, a right wing non-profit.

 

Under our law, they don't have to disclose their donors, since they are "non-political".

In addition to "fighting the good fight" I'm sure he smells a potential payday in all of this.

What a load of crap. Zimmerman who admitted he killed an innocent boy, whines about his character being damaged?

He is funded by white supremacist who got in the WH by betraying the US and riding Putin's tailcoat. Now this idiot is riding the white supremacist and Russian gravey train.

31. I just read an article that questionned why Zimmerman

 

didn't and doesn't let it all die. He got acquitted and keeps on doing outrageous stuff.

I really hope neither did tweet about him though. You can still think he's wretched and also think if a jury acquitted a person, as a public servant who respects jury decisions, you should talk about someone else???

He really is shameless.

Warren and at least one other candidate did refer to Michael Brown's killing as a murder, and when the did I thought we most likely would be hearing about that again.

28. I had to look it up, but

 

apparently the Confederate constitution included the right to bear arms in Article 1, section 9, clause 13, and not in a separate bill of rights. Thus, in the context of the Confederacy, invoking "the 2nd" and "our 1st" is nonsense.

This just further goes to prove my theory that Zimmerman is a f-ing moron.

18. Huh? Can you actually sue someone for simply stating that water is wet?

 

You'd think he'd simply be grateful at his point for not being in a prison cell (where he belongs) getting violently sodomized and having the shit kicked out of him everyday for the next 30-60 years. You'd think.

who is George Zimmerman?
