Disappointed by Yesterday's Appeals Court Ruling

04/07/2009 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

The three judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruled. While they threw out two counts of my politically-motivated prosecution and conviction, they upheld several others and have sent the case back to the district court for re-sentencing.

Thanks to TPM and Firedoglake for blogging about this.

I am disappointed, but not discouraged. The fight will continue.

If you have a chance, I hope you'll consider contributing to my legal defense fund so we can keep up the fight.

My family and I are deeply appreciative of the outpouring of support and prayers, especially here on Huffington Post and throughout the netroots community. Your words and actions keep our spirits lifted and our resolve strong. We will get through this, and we will win.
