Idaho Activist Ammon Bundy Warns: “Come no more upon me.”
Ammon Bundy has fought the law at the city, county, state, and federal levels. Mr. Bundy indeed has opposed the law and won. However, a civil lawsuit against him by Saint Luke's Hospital Systems caused the one-time Idaho gubernatorial candidate to ask for help from several unlikely public officials.
In a letter from Mr. Bundy, he describes his situation as facing an onslaught of civil litigation 'that would be impossible to defend.' The Idaho gubernatorial candidate sent his letter to Blake Higley, Scott Bedke, Whitney Welsh, Chris Roth, Anne McDevitt, Eric Stidham, Brad Little, Chris Topmiller, and Keith Reynolds.

Mr. Bundy and fellow activist Diego Rodriguez accused them in May "and their closely linked political organizations — People's Rights Network and Freedom Man PAC — of defamation and harassment," reported the Idaho Capital Sun. Both of them have failed to show up in court to address the civil suit.

In his letter, the Emmett farmer shares the cost of the civil lawsuit. "To date, St. Luke's team of attorneys to put a lien on my home, forcing me to sell it. I have been forced to liquidate all my assets except a few and my family and have no idea when any of this will end."
He continues by saying that the legal documents sent from Saint Luke's could fill an entire trash dumpster. Mr. Bundy reveals that he believes it would take three full-time attorneys to begin to represent him in this case.
